I love that the heroine isn't a Disney princess (not that there's anything wrong with those - but it makes for a very cool change and opens up the storyline to new possibilities). But it's the hero, Aladdin, who made my heart sing. He really is a hero, and not an alpha, abusive hero, but a man who struggles and strives to live a good life for himself and those he loves.
This was a very grown-up romance. Magic doesn't save people. Courage does. Perfect!
This was a very different retelling than the others of this series. It was sweet, funny and sexy like always but it was a little darker, which I surprisingly liked
Princess Maram is the Sultan's daughter, his favourite of many. Since she is his favourite, she gets certain privileges like travelling and gaining private access to her favourite public bathhouse.
But even if her life is full of jewels and so much riches, she isn't free to love or marry who she wants. As the Sultan's daughter, she status and body are greatly treasured, which is an advantage she uses to gain allies for her father. Thus she uses seductions spells to lure the men and gain information.
After her latest mission, her father gives her permission to marry, as a reward for what she does, but Maram is not fooled to believe her father will let her marry whoever she wishes. It's likely he will marry her off for advantage. And Maram wishes for true love but knows no one will want her for love, she's been used too much.
But an encounter with a humble spinner son at a bathhouse may change her mind
Aladdin was a merchant's son but his father died and so his mother and him have been living in poverty ever since. But when he mistakenly takes a wrong turn and ends up in the bathhouse the princess washes in, he knows his heart is doomed. A princess will never be able to marry him, a lowly peasant, which is why he agrees to accompany a crazy man in search for riches and princesses to marry. But in this journey, he will travel far and wide, face dangers, djinns and magic that can save and destroy him.
But both Aladdin and Maram will do anything to see each other again.
Really loved this story, keeps you interested throughout the journey. There are hints that a secondary character's story will be told in the next books, which I can't wait to read. Looking forward to reading more!
Received a copy from the author herself, in exchange for an honest review, thank you!!

Lots of drama and excitement in this retelling of Aladdin. I liked the side of story as told by Maram and it was nice to have a couple of strong women in this tale set in a very male dominated world. Well written and very enjoyable.
NB I received a complimentary copy of this book, but I always give an HONEST review based wholly on my own opinions
