To all the world, Alizeh is a disposable servant, not the long-lost heir to an ancient Jinn kingdom forced to hide in plain sight.

This Woven Kingdom
By Tahereh Mafi

Review: This Woven Kingdom

A long-forgotten queen upends a kingdom shaped by secrets and dark magic in Tahereh Mafi’s lushly imagined series starter, THIS WOVEN KINGDOM.

Alizeh is a servant working in a noble house—destitute, berated, and overworked—her destiny as the lost heir to an ancient Jinn kingdom buried in the ruins of their fallen civilization. Foretold to unify her people and be the end of the King, Alizeh hides in plain sight to avoid being discovered.

But when Prince Kamran collides with Alizeh unexpectedly, he is instantly mesmerized by this servant girl with strange eyes… left reeling when he learns she’s the one prophesized to end his grandfather.

Stakes escalate as those in the kingdom of Ardunia hunt Alizeh, all the while Kamran’s emotions deepen the more he gets to know her.

Caught between the responsibilities towards their people and the intensifying pull between them, Alizeh and Kamran must navigate the perils of court machinations as an insatiable dark magic lurks just out of sight.

I was swept away by this exquisitely imagined world inspired by Persian mythology. Brimming with intrigue, magic, and forbidden romance, I was held captive by the Mafi’s beautiful prose, textured and nuanced in a way that deepened the story’s stronghold.

This was one of those rare gems that already has me clamoring for me.
