And I shall take from you these lives, a thousandfold Ohh Khalid Jan nothing is your fault You re so perfectt, when you re going to accept that Why do I forget how much I love khalid and every single side and main character of this story If it would ve been in my hands I would ve made the author helpless to write a thousand books on khalid Anything which is about Khalid will always be per fect The fear he d felt before was nothing now Nothing compared to the horror of certainty.All this death Al [...]
This was a great jump start to get me back into this world going into The Rose and the Dagger
A maze to mirror his thoughts lost Directionless Oh Khalid The same boy king who stole my heart in The Wrath the Dawn Of course he s worried about his city, his people, and of course he s worried about Shazi His love and care for her is so cute it makes me so sad It s such a cute love story and both of them together makes everything better.This starts off where The Wrath the Dawn left and nothing much is told Jalal lets Khalid know Shazi is safe with Tariq and even when Khalid is furious because [...]
Look around you, Khalid Ibn al Rashid Look around you with the eyes of a man, not the heart of a boy Rating Khalid is a great king and an even greater man No surprise there This novella doesn t add much to the general storyline of The Wrath and the Dawn but we see of the storm that builds within Khalid s mind as he finds out that Jalal has sent Shazi away with Tariq.Khalid doesn t speak much but when he does, he means a lot But I believe his character speaks through actions than words and here [...]
Khalid s story after what happened in The Wrath and the Dawn.This novella is my favorite Khalid rides back to his city to find out it s being ruined What he feels for Shahrzad is unstoppable, though Just wow
yo Khalid, YOU CUTIE, LET ME EAT YOU
This short story is a preparation for The Rose the Dagger It showed a glimpse of what happened in the first book, The Wrath the Dawn after the destruction of Rey City.My heart still breaks for Khalid here,my poor,handsome king And in this book, my admiration for Jalal and Despina leveled up I m loving this series and Renee Ahdieh even
Review posted on Fafa s Book Corner Beware spoilers ahead Initially I had no intention of reading The Mirror and the Maze But once I saw that it was available on the publishers website I decided Why not I am surprised to say that I actually liked it The story begins right after The Wrath and the Dawn with Khalid returning home Much to Khalid and his men s surprise they see smoke coming from their home They get their horses to move faster and eventually make it Khalid is in shock at the destructi [...]
And I shall take from you these lives, a thousandfold Consider my interest peaked for the next book Which is surprising because I really wasn t a fan of The Wrath and The Dawn But as I said then, this series might be worth sticking with for the writing alone Two starsThis can be read here.
Khalid my poor baby
3.5 stars I am so not ready for The Rose and The Dagger This novella reminded me that, a Renee Ahdieh is capable of breaking my heart within the space of 7 pages and that, b I am still very much in love with Khalid Ibn al Rashid.
Oh die Geschichte war genau das was ich zum berbr cken bis zum n chsten Band brauchte Sie spielt nach dem ersten Band bzw zum Ende des ersten Bandes und dann war ja auch noch das erste Kapitel des zweiten Bandes als Leseprobe mit dabei, ich bin gespannt wie ein Flitzebogen wie es weitergeht mit Sharzad, Chalid und allen anderen
And I shall take fro you these lives, a thousandfold.The fear he d before was nothing now Nothing compared to the horror of certainty All the death All the destruction.My fault.And Shazi left with Tariq because of the destruction, too Let s hope Khalid and Shazi will be together again.
I don t know how I missed this last year It was a good little snippet into Khalid s head, but I could have done with a million pages.
this has gotten me hyped for the sequel
The Mirror the Maze takes place right after the The Wrath the Dawn Khalid was on his way back to his kingdom ruined by the storm That was it, my dear friends.When I started reading the first paragraph of this novella, my brain was already running through situations on what Khalid would do when he arrived in Rey My guesses were all correct.If you ve read the first book, you would surely have an idea on how Khalid might have reacted to his situation, how he might have felt, and whatever Khalid wou [...]
This was my least favorite of the short stories It just seemed totally pointless But I still love Khalid and the story did remind me of where we left off in the first book Thank God the second book is finally here and in my hands
Okay I absolutely love hearing of the story and feelings from Khalid I want him to find happiness These two short stories might actually push me right into book two.
I liked that this picked up almost exactly where The Wrath and the Dawn finished It was really interesting to see the initial aftermath and consequences through Khalid s point of view I do wish it could have been longer but it s definitely made me even excited to finally read The Rose and the Dagger
The writing is just so beautiful I wanna cry It makes me wanna reread The Wrath and the Dawn and the novellas other than this before reading The Rose and the Dagger You know what I might just do that.
Full review to come.
Oh, my heart.
Meh What you get is And I shall take from you these lives, a thousandfold over and over.This was pointless Read this for our May Short Story Month Marathon, a personal challenge during which Sandra and I will be going through our short story collection.
And I shall take from you these lives, a thousandfold I almost forgot how much I loved Khalid because it s been too long, but this story brought it all back And now I can t stop thinking about him I even reread this tale because I was freaking out so much the first time.The Mirror and the Maze follows Khalid s return to the city of Rey With smoke billowing, fires blazing and his people fleeing, Khalid races back to defend his city, and protect his queen But Khalid is too late to do either He and [...]
This is how I feel reading these short stories and this one in particular Book Here we have some Khalid for you Come shows Khalid Me tries to reach Khalid and almost succeeds Book Time s up gets Khalid back WHY MUST YOU TORMENT ME SO.These short stories are way too fucking short.
I don t think one can write a chapter for a one chapter novella
My beautiful Khalid I love reading from his POV and getting a glimpse into his mind He s so cute when he s worried about Shazi.
The Mirror and the Maze definitely prepares us for The Rose and the Dagger as it sets right after the ending of the Wrath and the Dawn but this is so heartbreaking Cannot imagine the emotions the Khalid could be feeling as he takes everything in Really cannot wait to see how this story continues Soon I ll get my hands on The Rose and the Dagger, and also read the other novella The Moth and the Flame
Well, this 9 pages were interesting I m not sure what to make of this, I WANT TO READ THE SEQUEL.It peaked my interest, but it wasn t that great Other than this, I can say my heart is with Khalid, now and forever.Now, let s get into the next one.
