My last few trips to the library have been fairly discouraging, none of my picks holding my interest long enough for me to finish. However, I’ve been two for two on the latest novels I’ve read- A Thousand Nights and The Adoration of Jenna Fox.
A Thousand Nights
By: E. K. Johnston
Rating: 5 out of 5
After taking the place of her sister as Lo-Melkhiin’s bride, the main character develops powerful magic as she resists a king who killed all three hundred of his previous wives.
Because I enjoyed fantasy more when I was younger, I was surprised how much I loved A Thousand Nights for its prose, world-building, and strong female lead. Derived from the premises of the classic A Thousand and One Nights, which contains stories like Aladdian or The Forty Thieves, this novel creates a brand new story that feels like legend.
