A Thousand Nights (Paperback)E.K. Johnston (author)
- In stock
He killed three hundred girls before he came to my village, looking for a wife.
When a powerful and dangerous king arrives in the desert to take one of the village girls as his next wife, one girl will stop at nothing to save the life of her sister - even if it means sacrificing herself.
At his palace she is sure death awaits. But the king's fascination with her keeps her alive night after night, as the tales she weaves for him create a strange magic between them and her words come to life before her eyes. As her stories become more intricate and beautiful, her magic becomes more powerful, but will it be enough to save her?
