A Thousand Nights by E. K. Johnston

A Thousand Nights by E. K. Johnston is based on the story of the same name. This is a retelling. Johnston went with more of a magic feel with this book. I think that the story line could have been planned a little better. I wasn't as engrossed into the story as I would have wanted to be. A Thousand Nights is very slow-paced but yet thoughtful in how it brings its point across. I really liked how Johnston creates anonymous characters. Everyone is unnamed except Lo-Melkhiin and I think this is a very unique way to write this story. Another unique point of view is the romance was removed from the story as a whole which left it open for all the ugliness of what was really going on. I actually enjoyed A Thousand Nights a lot more than I thought I would.
