It started as playful, if barbed, banter before rising to a fateful wager with a most notorious rake—the Captain of the Guard, Jalal al-Khoury—who may have finally met his match in a lovely, if haughty, handmaiden, Despina. But she, too, seems to have met her match in the handsome Jalal. What begins as a tempestuous battle of will and wit in short order becomes a passionate affair spurred on by tragedy of the worst kind.

4 out of 5 stars


This was what I wanted while reading The Wrath and the Dawn duology, so I’m really glad that this was a thing. Despina has always been one of my favorite characters, so a short story about her… I’m here for it.

I love me some cute mushy romance, and this is the beginning of a relationship that I totally ship so hard. I love Jalal and Despina together, so it was super cute seeing them interact for the first time. I know that Jalal was kind of a player before he met Despina, but once he started talking to her he didn’t want to think about anyone else. Awww cute cute cute.

I love reading kissing scenes, so this was real cute. Again, here for it. I love seeing some of the characters that don’t get talked about too much in the full series, in novellas like this. I’m so excited to read the rest of them because I know that I’m going to love them all. I HOPE THERE’S ONE ABOUT SHARZHAD AND KHALID TOGETHER OMG. I would be LIVING for that.
