Although this story is set before the events of the Wrath and the Dawn, it is much better placed after reading the first book to fully appreciate these characters and their stories (particularly as there are two little spoilers for the first book in there!). Despina and Jalal have a funny but utterly romantic love story - it's perfect. Filled with banter, snide comments and cheeky flirtations rather than a bunch of silly words and mushy nonsense; I adore them.
Interestingly this book is set in the reign of Ava, Khalids first wife, so we get to see her story much clearer than in the first book which I also enjoyed.
Definitely a great addition to the series!
This was my favourite of all the novellas for this series. I loved seeing how Jalal and Despina's relationship developed. I love Despina's reaction to Jalal's cheesy flirting and the way it developed was actually adorable.
The only reason it didn't get the full 5 stars was because I wished we saw more of the actual love affair (no joke, I would read an entire companion novel about these two because they are so cute) but I really loved the end with Despina declaring that her child would bow to no-one.
I adore her.
