For thirty-nine nights, the sultan of Zunbar has chosen a new wife.
For thirty-nine dawns, they are pronounced dead.
When Sultan Zayne summons my best friend to be taken as his newest victim, I can no longer pretend to be blind and volunteer in her stead. My only plan--weave a story each night and hopefully learn why he would kill in the first place. I don't belong here.
But as I unravel the tapestry of lies, I learn there's more going on inside its gilded walls than anyone in the land could have ever realized. A shadow looms in every corner and tries to possess Zayne each night. I've woven myself into the story, and if I don't pull on the right thread, it's not only my life at stake but my heart.
