1 Review

“This wonderful tale within a tale within a tale, recently featured and available to read on the Tor Books website, captured my imagination immediately. Reminiscent of a story from the Arabian Nights, and other Middle Eastern legends (with a modern twist), I was so captivated by the beginning that I went and bought it for my Kindle so I could curl up in bed with it.”
