Addictive is one word that I'd use to describe this book. I wish I could say more but given that there is a lot that can’t be said because of spoilers, I would say its a story rich in detail, full of sounds, sights, and smells that make you feel as though you're actually there. The characters were well written and you did feel a bond with them while reading. The premise of the story was interesting also, and well told. So thank you Mehreen for this fabulous book which gave me many hours of reading pleasure.
