"The Storyteller's Daughter" (A Thrilled Ashley Review)

Hey Guys!!!!

  Happy day before Halloween!!!!! Today I am going to be reviewing a very moving, adventures, story that has pulled me into its clutches. "The Storyteller's Daughter" is another exciting book, in the "Once Upon A Time Series, this book is written by Cameron Dokey. This is yet again another beautiful retelling of an old tale.



 
 
 
Here is the summary of this amazing book taken from Goodreads...
 
   "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."
 
I will admit that this story does start off slow, but that's only because you have to have the background of all the characters to understand the story. This is a very moving tale and shouldn't be missed by anybody. The reader will start falling in love with the king and be rooting for the woman, Shahrazad, to capture the stone cold heart and have her own happily ever after.
 
This story is so different than the ones we are accustomed to, but that doesn't mean that it doesn't belong right up there with them. I am a sucker for a good romance and being able to see the characters transform into better people. This is a book packed with different stories, romance, plotting, murder, and family. It is a once in a lifetime story that should be read by every lover of books!!!
 
Happy Reading!!!!
