Traitor to the Throne by Alwyn Hamilton
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Traitor to the Throne follows Amani’s new (and very exciting) life as a rebel. However it isn’t long before Amani is captured and sent to live with the Sultan’s harem (which is hilarious considering that she is involved with one of his sons and working for the other). What follows is a wonderfully intricate plot of deceit, betrayal and secrets. I LOVED IT ALL.
I’ve tried reading this book thrice. The first time I was just confused as it had been so long since I read “Rebel of the Sands” and I couldn’t remember most of the plot, the second time I was in a book slump and found this book painfully slow to read. I ended up reading 50 pages and then the ending (which I forgot shortly afterwards).
I finally got around to finishing it and while it did take me a few days, it was difficult for me to put it down. This was a gripping, emotional read that left me in tears.
There were so many surprises at the end that I think I’m going to need a while to process everything before I move on to Hero at the Fall. (Now that the series is complete, if you haven’t read it already DO IT!!!)
