It's actually kind of strange the way I feel jealousness from Kenji's perspective for Jella and Waaron. Like with all the books from Juliette's and Warner's perspective, I yearn and root for their relationship, because they deserve happiness and everything, but whenever the story goes into Kenji's perspective, I just feel so bad for him, and not just feel bad for him, but I feel so annoyed by Julaaron's relationship, because I feel like the story is too centered on their own relationship, and all the stuff and fights and problems, that seeing things from Kenji's perspective just makes it annoying for me that they are so into their relationship and Kenji is just a side character.
And yes, I know that Kenji and Nazeera are currently in the beginning stages of their own relationship, and I suppose everything will be great and pretty with them and they will both be happy, the overall vibes I got while I read this novella was hatred for Julliaaron's relationship. It's dumb, I know, because once I will start reading the next one, I can almost guarantee that I will once again feel really happy and enjoy reading about their relationship, but yeah, in this book I just felt bad for Kenji and hated how the story plot was centered so much around Jullliete/Ella and Aaron/Warner. I kind of want Kenji to become a main character instead of a side character now. He's just so underrated and has so much character development to do.

All is not as it seems and trust is at a premium in this story. When we left off in This Woven Kingdom, Alizeh, the lost queen of the Jinn, had just been swooped up by a dragon and stolen away from Ardunia by the evil young king of Tulan, Cyrus, to become his queen. Ardunia’s King Zaal, the long-reigning king, is dead after having been exposed as aligned with the devil Iblees. All the Diviners (healers) are murdered and Zaal’s grandson Karman is now heir to the throne. But can he do it? Gravely wounded in his fight with Cyrus, Karman is also reeling from not only learning that his closest friend and advisor, Hazan, betrayed him, and Alizeh has as well. Or has she?

There is so much happening in this book, all taking place over just a few days. As with the first book, the world-building is impressive and the writing is lyrical. Each chapter ends in suspense, begging the reader to keep going to see what happens next. Mixed in with the intense fighting, escape attempts, and betrayals is a bit of surprising and welcome comic relief that includes secondary characters who are up for the challenge. To say too much more would risk spoilers, but this sequel is breathtaking in its plot, action, and romance.

Alizeh’s story begins in a way that reminds you of a fairy tale and in some ways it is a fairy tale, but instead of a helpful fairy godmother, Alizeh is tormented by the Devil himself. Alizeh is a jinn, but not an ordinary jinn. She was raised to be a leader but her people are scattered and their number is smaller than the Clay, which are the humans. Alizeh is considered a snoda, a servant; she hides her face and her identity until an event occurs that causes her to be noticed by the royal family. Is she a spy? The King believes she is even worse than a spy, she is who the Diviners have prophesied about; will it be the end of the kingdom or the end of Alizeh? To reveal more would be to give away spoilers and key plot points, and this book is too good to spoil for other readers.

The writing of this novel is beautiful and lyrical. The world-building is vivid and stunning. There are times when the reader will want to cry and laugh. Every character in the story plays a vital role to the plot, which is very well planned out from the opening chapter to the cliff-hanger ending. This book is the first of a new fantasy series by Tahereh Mafi, and hopefully the next book won’t take too long to come out.
