These Infinite Threads (This Woven Kingdom, 2)

We rated this book:


Things did not go as planned and now Alizeh is trapped in the country she’s meant to rule with a royal who is determined to make her marry him. Cyrus, the mysterious royal, has motives of his own, ones he won’t share. Kamran is fighting not only against his feelings but for his throne as well. Alizeh still has a hold over him, one he cannot afford to have, not after her betrayal. But maybe it’s not what he thinks. And maybe it’s not too late to untangle the nest of lies and secrets woven around them.

These Infinite Threads is the second book in a trilogy, both ending on a cliffhanger that had me wishing for the next book immediately. Unfortunately, I felt it was a bit boring, but it’s fast-paced and I didn’t have trouble finishing it. There was a lot of world-building and insight into characters from the first book and new ones. Most of the characters I found infuriating; most seemingly brash, arrogant, helpless, or all of the above. The descriptions are wonderful and poetic, describing beautiful scenes and clothes, but not actions. This mostly happens during dialog, which is often long with no breaks.
