Arabia – Circa 764. In a desert filled with danger, desire, and deception, one girl will meet her fate and move kingdoms.
Al-Khayzuran’s life changes forever when she is kidnapped from her home and taken to a slave market near Mecca. An unlikely and altogether fateful series of events leads her face to face with the gates of the capital, and a young prince on the verge of rising to the seat of Caliph. Thrust into a world of flattery, royalty, intrigue and war, Khaya must learn everything she can, as fast as she can, or leave her fate in the hands of her enemies.
The Serpent’s Veil is a working title. Other titles for this work are Whispers in the Sand, The Desert’s Whisper, and The Sixth Prayer.
