A Thousand Nights

Lo-Melkhiin killed 300 girls before he came to my village, looking for a wife. When Lo-Melkhiin --- a formidable king --- arrives at her desert home, she knows that he will take her beautiful sister for a wife. Desperate to save her sister from certain death, she makes the ultimate sacrifice --- leaving home and family behind to live with a fearful man. But it seems that a strange magic flows between her and Lo-Melkhiin, and night after night, she survives. Finding power in storytelling, the words she speaks are given strange life of their own. Little things, at first: a dress from home, a vision of her sister. But she dreams of bigger, more terrible magic: power enough to save a king...if only she can stop her heart from falling for a monster. Set against a harsh desert backdrop, A THOUSAND NIGHTS by E K Johnston is an evocative tale of love, mystery and magic that would not feel out of place if Scheherazade herself were telling it. And perhaps she is...
