I've personally always LOVED retellings, especially when they are DONE well.
This is the retelling of the Arabian Nights tale. Beautifully thought out and detailed. From the first pages it entices you to read further. I know I was. The Storyteller is the heart of the story, just how they merely use fabric to weave and tell a story astonished me. It was just really beautiful.
Now I can gush on and on about this even more but I'm gonna stop here to save you from that torture lol. It's been a LONG while since I stumbled upon a good retelling of the fairytale genre and whatnot. I cannot wait to pick up the rest of Cameron Dokey's retellings.
I think my only complain is this being too short lol.
