Product Description

Product Description

The peaceful life of sisters Naira and Margarid is shattered when their Armenian village is raided and their family slaughtered. Sold into slavery, the sisters are separated. Naira eventually ends up in the harem of the mighty Sultan Abdul Selim, ruler of the vast Ottoman Empire. Here, even the slightest hint of disobedience is punished with utmost severity, as the sadistic head eunuch assures her. And indeed the torments that await a disobedient slave in the Sultan's harem are manifold. But with her sister in mortal danger, Naira is willing to face even death and worse to regain her freedom and save Margarid's life.

This is a novelette of 11000 words.

Warning: There is quite a bit of violence and cruelty in this story, so sensitive readers should tread carefully.

2.0 out of 5 stars Dull, But with Violence 4 Oct 2013
By Rabid Reader - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was a short story that was too short. Because of the breakneck pace of the writing, the reader had to be hand-fed all the needed details for the plot to make sense, but the author only shared the bare-minimum for things to hang together. The plot was primarily fueled by pointless, unexplained violence and a few coincidences to hold it together. Maybe this would work better as a longer story that gave the plot some time to develop?
