This book started out much slower than the others in the series. It is a fractured fairytale based on Aladdin and tells the story of Julian (the villain), Yasmin, her dying father, and his final wishes for her. It takes a while, but it is spicy! I love the storylines of these books, so I look past the fact that they are a little more raunchy than I typically would read.

We loved learning about school in Africa. The kids have to build it new every year because it washes away during the rainy season! They are happy to build it and happy to learn.

I enjoyed this book a lot. It is told from the persepctive of a young woman who is kidnapped, her mother, and the kidnapper. Family drama keeps this case at bay until the very last page.
