Reviews

"This Woven Kingdom is an exquisite fantasy. Rich with clever prose, delicious twists, and breathtaking world building. Prepare to be destroyed--this one will wrench at your heart and make it pound, and in the end it will leave you entirely speechless."
--Stephanie Garber, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Caraval series
Drawn from Persian mythology and Islamic texts, this epic fantasy is brilliantly structured to maximize readers' emotional buy-in. Eloquent prose brings vivid immediacy to each scene. Although Alizeh and Kamran are only together a handful of times, Mafi gives full due to their steamy, forbidden attraction. [The] ending ensures a breathlessly awaited sequel.--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
Tahereh Mafi has written a timely, compelling novel about love and family and the remarkably complex nature of religion and faith. An Emotion of Great Delight is as profound as it is beautiful.--Matt de la Peña, New York Times and Newbery Medal winning author of The Last Stop on Market Street
Richly textured, descriptive prose coupled with agonizing romance combine in this fantastical epic. Gut-wrenchingly beautiful.--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
[An] illustrious tale of magic, court intrigue, and romance. Captivating readers from the very first chapter... A magnetic series opener that will delight fans of Mafi's previous series.
--Booklist
This story is so magical and transportive that I fully expected the book would know the moment I'd finished -- within hours, no less -- and promptly unravel into a pile of jewels and silks in my hands. Mafi's diamond-bright lyrical voice weaves a tale that is gilded in magic, laced with subterfuge, adorned with the brocade of a tortuous romance, and richly embroidered with Persian mythology. I cannot wait for more.--Roshani Chokshi, New York Times bestselling author of The Gilded Wolves

"In a tale as exquisitely crafted as one of Alizeh's own garments, Mafi weaves a spell of destiny and danger, forbidden love and courtly intrigue, magic and revolution."--Cassandra Clare, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Last Hours
I've been longing to read a story inspired by The Shahnameh, and This Woven Kingdom captivated me with its deft worldbuilding and searing romance. Alizeh's quiet strength unfurls against a darkly magical backdrop. This book is a glittering jewel, complete with razor-sharp edges.
--Renée Ahdieh, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Wrath & the Dawn series
In a heart-wrenching novel based in Islamic texts and Persian poem the Shahnameh, Mafi complements rich worldbuilding with lushly descriptive, sensorial prose that inspires the novel's mythological backdrop, against which plays out an emotional plot, and a tortured romance, layered with court intrigue.
--Publishers Weekly
PRAISE FOR An Emotion of Great Delight: Gorgeous and poetic, Mafi is unflinching in her rendering of pain and brutal truths, but also succeeds in weaving a tale that is brimming with heart and honest hope. This is a book I wish I'd had when I was fourteen. I'm so glad young readers will have it now. A truly special story.--Jasmine Warga, New York Times bestselling and Newbery Honor-winning author of Other Words for Home
