it was ok
bookshelves: abandoned

I stuck with it until page 200 when I realized its just going to keep going and going and going just the same... too floral, too chauvinistic, too Cyra cultish, too much adoration for sultan, too much either sugary camaraderie or hateful plotting, bleh. As characters changed they were basically replacements of each other. I found it presented in an outdated way and I didn't have the patience for it. Also, I know Cyra didnt exactly have a choice in terms of being abducted, but I am surprised that she accepted her new faith and way of life so readily, for a Western woman.
