Soraya felt like she had stepped into one of the illustrations in her books. She wondered how she was supposed to climb up and free them, but then she remembered that she only had to put out the esfand before Parvaneh could come and help her.
When she went up on her toes, she could reach the brazier enough to overturn it, sending a shower of coal dangerously close to her head. One by one, she went around the ring and put out the braziers. As the last coals came tumbling down and the smoke disper
...sed, some of the pariks began to stir, awakening from their forced slumber. Soraya moved away from the cages, hoping that Parvaneh would appear soon. She didn’t know how the pariks would react to her, or if they would believe her when she claimed to be their ally.
“You,” came a voice to her right. Startled, Soraya turned and met the gaze of one of the pariks. She was still curled up from her sleep, but she lifted her head and peered at Soraya through the bars with wide orange eyes. She appeared mostly human, except for the feathered patterns on her skin.

I think this book was absolutely amazing! It reminded me so much of Beauty and the Beast while also not. It's such an amazing book to read about romance and it gives off a good message/

Girl, Serpent, Thorn had the atmosphere of a fairytale. I thoroughly enjoyed this standalone. The storytelling tone of the first pages echoes throughout the entirety of the book. Like a classic tale, Soraya is a princess, and she is cursed. Her curse forces her to grow in isolation. She moves like a phantom throughout the secret passages of the castle, careful not to meet anyone. The only friend she has eventually abandons her. Alone, untouchable, resentment brews in the depths of her heart, so when the opportunity to figure out a way to be rid of her curse presents itself, she takes it.

What made Soraya interesting was her internal moral dilemma that follows her throughout the entirety of the book. I think I could label her an anti-hero, for she does share many of an anti-heroes traits, and this would have made an incredible origin story for a villainess, had her choices been different. I won’t go too much into depth to avoid spoilers, but people who read and will read this book will know what I mean.

The romance didn’t entirely convince me. While I found Soraya and Parvaneh to be cute, their development felt rushed. My perception was that, in the end, Soraya had a lot more page time with the villain and again, had she gone down the villain path, it would have made for quite the angsty villain romance. I don’t usually root for the bad guy, but the Shahmar was very well developed and my interest piqued when he was in the scene. I dare say, after The Darkling from The Grisha Trilogy, he’s my favorite villain.
