Land of Red

Posted by A Drop of Romeo at 1:11 AM
Aliana was born with skin the color of dusty cinnamon. It was her skin that brought her to the feet of the Younger Prince of Deshret as a present to serve in his harem. And it was because of him she met his brother. Fate has an interesting domino effect.
Juliet Thinks: Each and every character's dialogue and actions are authentic to the time period of slavery. Even the words that Queen Anabella uses to describe the everyday things match the century. For example, acne is referred to as "spots" that appear on one's face. An ancient version of the girl-falls-for-beau's-brother, Land of Red is rich in the description of the setting and shows detail by detail, the progression of the relationship between Cicario and Aliana. Every chapter helps build up to the heart-wrenching climax. Aliana, whose beautiful skin attracts male attention, is the modest and naive protagonist. Although some subplots come off as a bit two-dimensional, Aliana's struggle captures the reader's heart. Trapped between princes, she must fight for her independence as a servant of the royal family. Blackmail, suspense, and sibling rivalry coat the story of the country of Deshret.
