Gr 9 Up–After ending This Woven Kingdom on a cliff-hanger, readers will be thrilled to pick up the angst-filled sequel. A single kiss has changed the course of Alizeh and Kamran’s lives, as well as the fate of their kingdoms. The devil Iblees has played a long game to deliver the world to the cusp of ruin, and Alizeh a dangerous throne. Duty and love pull the couple in many directions as they are manipulated, betrayed, and tested on all fronts. Mafi’s story weaves a rich tapestry of Persian worldbuilding, nuanced characters, and a slow, searing romance to carry readers through this installment. The luxurious writing style sacrifices plot for depth but sets up high stakes for the next book.
VERDICT Beautifully written, but firmly a middle book. Recommended for general purchase.
