REVIEW: This Woven Kingdom

Alizeh is a djinn living in hiding as a servant. She is a skilled seamstress but lives scrubbing a fancy house, only taking small commissions when she can. One night she is attacked in the street and she accidentally shows just how capable she is… the person who sees her is none other than the prince. He believes her to be the foretold prophecy that will unseat his grandfather the king. He finds himself unduly drawn to her, reluctant to dispose of her as he should. And then banter and plotting ensues with an early reveal of what is really going on and then the unfurling of the prophecy.

Yeesh, why did I sleep on this one? I mean look at that edition, I think I was too afraid to mess it up while reading. So I solved that by getting it on audiobook. The romance aspect dripped of Elizabeth and Darcy, it captured me for sure. I loved the mythology of the djinn, the unusual magic, the beauty of their kingdom and the nods to other fairy tales (like Cinderella). ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I’m glad I waited until the next book is about to be released though because I can’t wait to dive back into this world. What sequel are you anxiously awaiting this year?
