it was amazing
bookshelves: own

I loved it. I loved it so much that I cannot put it into words how much. What an amazing conclusion to a beautiful story. Just as good if not better than The Wrath and the Dawn. Utterly quotable, I found myself re-reading passage after passage. The characters stayed true to themselves, the plot threads were well thought out and concluded wonderfully, and the relationships were beautiful and flawless. Absolutely stunning, I will read anything Ahdieh writes.

“It was because they were two parts of a whole. He did not belong to her. And she did not belong to him. It was never about belonging to someone. It was about belonging together.”

“I’ve missed the silence of you listening to me.” Shahrzad attempted a weak smile. “No one listens to me as you do.” His expression turned quizzical. “You don’t wait to speak,” she clarified. “You truly listen.” “Only to you,” Khalid replied gently.”
