    A MUST READ!!!!

    I need book two. NOW. Where do I even begin? WHTF has been hyped through the roof and now that I've completed it, I can definitely say the hype is well deserved. This book is FANTASTIC. It's original, exciting, romantic, and packed with memorable and loveable characters (ALTAIR!!!!) Hafsah Faizal has a very elegant style of writing, which forces readers to pay attention to every word. She has an incredible way of stringing words together that isn't common in most books I've read. The world is also heavily inspired by Middle Eastern culture and lore, and I have to confess there were a few words that I didn't really understand (though I got the Scheherazade reference!). They added to the world and didn't decrease my enjoyment, but combined with Faizal's writing style, it usually meant I had to go back and reread a sentence or two to understand what was being said. WHTF really works your brain! The book is packed with action and monsters and thrills and adventure, as well as a slow burn romance that will have you screaming "Just kiss already!" more than once. It also has some of the most beloved characters I've read in a book. Every one, even the side characters, was strong and complex, and I loved many of them. Zafira is a powerful young woman who won't let anyone stand in her way, and I adore her, but one of my favourite characters is Nasir. He is just so complex, his heart torn between what he thinks he is, what he's been forced to do, and what he wants to become. He knows he should be an emotionless monster, and that's how everyone sees him, which makes the moments when he feels emotions all the more impactful and gut-wrenching. And then there's Altair. He may be a side character, but Altair steals every scene he's in. He made me laugh all the time, and had some shocking revelations that make him crucial to the story. I finished the book a couple hours ago and am already dying for the sequel. Not just because I loved it, but because there were so many shocking twists that I NEED to know what happens next, especially after that epilogue that shook me to the core. WHTF deserves all the hype and praise, and I'm already counting the days until I can enter the world of Arawiya once more.
