1) The link to my favorite Arabian Nights.
2) The way of characterising Khalid and Shehrzad.
3) The quote about the setting sun and rising sun.
All the others things are very complex. :/

This tells the tale of a "murderous boy-king" and a "girl willingly donning a crown of death". If that doesn't grab you I don't know what would! It shows the reaction of Khalid, the boy king, as he questions why a girl would offer herself willing to be killed. And he is determined to establish why.
I liked this short insight into the series. It certainly did a good job of making me want to know what was happening, why she is going to die and why he is murderous. But it is very short - only 11 pages - so I would have loved a little more back story. I'll consider this the preface to the first book. I think fans of the series will really like it.
This is basically Khalid and Shahrzad's first meeting but from his point of view rather than hers and I did enjoy getting to see what he was thinking when he found out that she volunteered to be his next bride.
It seems a bit petty to complain about the length of a free short story (this is around 9 pages long) but I really would have loved more from Khalid's point of view. I'm definitely looking forward to finding out how the story ends in The Rose and the Dagger though.
I just wish we had more because, whilst it's good and I did enjoy it, I felt that this was the kind of thing that we could have guessed. I could have wrote this as a fanfic if I wanted to.
I guess I just wanted more.
If you love this duology read this short story.
It adds so much to the story, that I was expecting to get in the first book and I’m so glad she wrote.
You will not regret reading this!
I loved The Wrath And The Dawn so I devoured this but it was far to short. I need more!!!
