Reviews

"Expertly woven." --"Kirkus"
"A dazzling historical novel of ancient Persia, a fairy tale of universal resonance, EQUAL OF THE SUN""is a story of love and ambition, loyalty and intrigue, the eternal anguish of a heart--and a country--at war with itself. --Gina Nahai, author of "Moonlight on the Avenue of Faith" and "Caspian Rain"
"Equal of the Sun is a fine political novel, full of rich detail and intrigue, but it's also a thought-provoking study of the intersection between gender and power." --Historical Novel Society
"Amirrezvani's sixteenth century Iran is a world as complex as Shakespeare's London, that seethes with intrigue, passion, and lawlessness, a world where a brilliant young princess, who longs for power denied her as a female, and a servant, with a desire so relentless he half-destroys himself, make a desperate pact to control the government and fate of the country, and in doing so discover their greatest loves and sorrows. In this astonishing novel Amirrezvani reminds us what all human hearts suffer and dare. EQUAL OF THE SUN is an irresistible novel." --Jonis Agee, author of "The River Wife"
""Equal of the Sun" is a page turner, with plenty of gripping moments. Here's hoping Amirrezvani will write many more tales illuminating the incredible history of the Iranians.." --"WashingtonPost"
"A page turner.... Here's hoping Amirrezvani will write many more tales illuminating the incredible history of the Iranians."
"A vibrant portrait of a country in the throes of change, with an extraordinary woman at its center."
