Synopsis

"ONCE UPON A TIME"IS TIMELESS

In a faraway kingdom, a king has been betrayed. Deeply hurt and bitterly angry, he vows never to be deceived again. Unfortunately, the king's plan to protect himself will endanger all of the realm's young women, unless one of them will volunteer to marry the king -- and surrender her life.

To everyone's relief and horror, one young woman steps forward. The daughter of a legendary storyteller, Shahrazad believes it is her destiny to accept this risk and sacrifice herself.

On the night of her wedding to the king, Shahrazad begins to weave a tale. Fascinated, the king lets her live night after night. Just when Shahrazad dares to believe that she has found a way to keep her life -- and an unexpected love -- a treacherous plot will disrupt her plan. Now she can only hope that love is strong enough to save her.

The Storyteller's Daughter
Average rating
4.3 / 5
Short and Simple but Beautifully Written
March 10th, 2015
I was surprised by the format by which the story was written, in which the main character narrates all the way through even expressing herself in the third person, and although awkward at first I thought it was a refreshing change from what I usually read. The story was reminiscent of old master stories in which its not about the length or the plot twists and everything else, but instead about the core values being presented and the characters that reflect some aspect of the reader. I loved the stories incorporated into the main story because they were original and like the main story was beautifully constructed. Again this book was a nice change of pace from my usual reads and I think it's a story that effortless to get into and enjoy.
