    1. 4.5 starsIf you didn t happen to catch it from the title, this is a retelling of The Arabian Nights You know, the one about the woman named Shahrazad who keeps herself from getting killed every morning, by spinning the world s greatest To Be Continued story every night Well, this is her version of the tale And it s good Really good.The best part is that it s beautifully written, but the author doesn t bore you to death by describing every grain of sand in the desert I m definitely going to be ch [...]


    2. I would wager that everyone belonging to GoodReads would say that they love books, and love reading Those of us that are librarians have decided to devote ourselves to the cause.Why is the Story so powerful In the hands of storyteller Dokey, the maiden Shahrazad who must please the king with her nightly story becomes a metaphor for the Story itself Will you turn the next page or not Will you open your heart to the story or not Those who do, find that the double power of Story is that it reveals [...]


    3. This is definitely one of the top 5 in the series so far It has rejuvenated my faith in the series Although I couldn t give it 5 stars it was pretty close.I was relieved when Shahrazad I think that s her name marries the King before the first quarter of the book ended, since it usually takes longer for Dokey to let the adventure start So I got to see of the guy the girl is supposed to fall in love with I ve only read one other book with this retelling so it was a fresher retelling to me Dokey w [...]


    4. Ever since I read the beautiful, enchanting book that was The Wrath the Dawn, I ve always been on the hunt for retellings of One Thousand and One Nights collectively known in English as The Arabian Nights To be honest, I don t know the full details of the original story, only that an evil king took one bride every night and killed her off the next morning, and so a brave young female storyteller stepped up She told the king one story every night, and the king was so captivated by her stories tha [...]


    5. Devour The Wrath and the Dawnby Renee Ahdieh and need another Arabian Nights retelling Try the 2002 release called The Storyteller s Daughter by Cameron Dokey The author s writing is absolutely beautiful and truly has a fairytale quality about it It s a short novel but it has just about everything you could want in a retelling of a classic I think I need to try from this author and continue this series of retellings.


    6. Though I m only giving this book 3 stars, I liked it overall a lot than you probably think is 3 stars worth Give me a moment and I ll try to explain.Dokey attempts a revisionist version of the classic tale of Shahrazad, incorporating some material from The Arabian Nights, omitting a lot of it, and then creating an elaborate frame that allows all of the characters you d care about in a happy fairy tale version to be sympathetic, despite doing things like proclaiming that they re going to marry v [...]


    7. Retelling of Arabain Nights.My favorite of the Once Upon A Time series.The writing is lovely.Insta love is not to be found.The characters are believeable and likable.


    8. Previously I have read Beauty Sleep by Cameron Dokey, and I liked the story So, I was excited to read another fairy tale retelling by Dokey Unfortunately I found this retelling of Arabian Nights hard to get through and pretty boring.Shahrazad is the daughter of a great storyteller When the King is betrayed by his wife, his heart turns to stone and he vows to marry a young woman each new moon and kill her the next morning That is unless a young woman comes forward voluntarily knowing she will die [...]


    9. The Storyteller s Daughter is the retelling of the Arabian Nights story, so now you know the plot or do you The narrator is Shahrazad, the storyteller of a thousand and one nights You think you already know the story but she says that you really know only a small part, and what she is about to relate has never before been told.The book s prologue is probably my favorite part Shahrazad comes alive, speaking poetically and directly to you about the nature of stories and catching your interest A s [...]


    10. Plot It s a retelling but somehow I don t feel like it It just you add something to in between the original story But I enjoy all the Sharazard s storyCharacter The character name are all the sameSharazad, Shazaman, Sharayar, Dinarzardd I kept confused because of itWorld Building It s didn t descirbe where this place takesbut the author do mention about India and Indochina so I asume it s takes place at our world.Writing Style Remember when you reading Aesop Fable Cameron managed to create the s [...]


    11. There are so many wonderful reviews about this book that I think maybe I missed something I m afraid I just didn t enjoy it I struggled through every page thinking that maybe it would get interesting I just never found what others did It is nonsensical to believe that Shahrazad could have such insight into people without ever having spent any time with any The stories that were found in the cloth featured wise, strong women yet in the world around Shahrazad none of those women really existed I [...]


    12. I m new to the YA fantasy genre so I m not really sure how to review in comparison to others in this genre It was a easy, enjoyable read without a ton of filler The story was simple and straight forward Something I think my daughter could and probably should read If I could get her into reading.


    13. I love fairy tale retellings I mean, I love them I love seeing what authors do with the old stories, how they twist them and pull them apart and add feisty heroines and princes with a bit depth than the average Grimm paragon It helps if the retelling comes with lovely writing, romance, and a dollop of humor but adds something entirely new to the old tale.And as fairy tale retellings go, this is a good one The writing is not lovely, but it s interesting and fits with the plot and the setting the [...]


    14. SUMMARY ONCE UPON A TIME IS TIMELESS In a faraway kingdom, a king has been betrayed Deeply hurt and bitterly angry, he vows never to be deceived again Unfortunately, the king s plan to protect himself will endanger all of the realm s young women, unless one of them will volunteer to marry the king and surrender her life To everyone s relief and horror, one young woman steps forward The daughter of a legendary storyteller, Shahrazad believes it is her destiny to accept this risk and sacrifice her [...]


    15. Cameron Dokey does a splendid job with her retelling of the Arabian Nights I loved every page of it and read it cover to cover in a couple of hours Definitely one of my top favorites in the Once Upon a Time series.Shahrazad is the daughter of the vizier and a storyteller Shahrayar is the crown prince After his father s death, Shahrayar divides the kingdom between himself and his brother, and as the years pass great peace comes to the land However, both brothers soon discover that their wives hav [...]


    16. I am surprised at how much I enjoyed this book Shahrazad s own story is told, along with the stories she weaves, against an authentic ancient middle eastern background, complete with desert heat, tribal loyalty, exiled kings who are locked away instead of killed, and women who use their beauty and skill and sometimes cunning to control the men they love, and thus the history of their kingdoms One quote After finishing a very long story I notice that once again it is the women who are most wise, [...]


    17. I m not the target audience for this book Right now, I looked at all the wonderful reviews of this novel and wonder if the people read the same book I did Maybe I m too picky.Go read any translation of nights instead of this.I have problems with this book The first is that the character of Shahrazad makes no sense All of sudden she s blind All of sudden she s a wonderful story teller who understands people even though she avoided people by locking herself in her room By the way, Shahrazad, her s [...]


    18. Surprisingly, I enjoyed this one even thanBeauty Sleep I wouldn t necessarily call this a fairy tale and the writing style was a little different, but it was the characters that I really enjoyed the most I also like stories when the hero and heroine must rise above the challenges they face, including ones they ve unknowingly created for themselves Like many fairy tales, it has a little treachery but unlike most fairy tales, however, this one has some blood being spilled This is definitely YF so [...]


    19. This was a very odd re telling Told like a bible verse or parable, it had a lot of and so it came to pass and remember, seek that which you are meant to be and not what you are not kind of stuff This is not my favorite way to read a story It s a personal preference, but I feel like it keeps me away from the characters As I m a character reader, this takes away from my enjoying the story through the character instead it just feels like.a story Something on paper that never comes alive.I m glad t [...]


    20. Great book with a wonderful cast Learned great lessons from it I enjoyed this book in the time I was reading it Exceeded my expectations If you are looking for a series with lessons on how to be a true person of royalty, start with this series I breathed a sigh of great victory when I was done with this book I have to admit though that I wanted to end this book because I was eager to start on the next book in this series So yeah Cameron Dokey is an awesome philosophical writer herself I read her [...]


    21. Once Upon a Time s The Storyteller s Daughter Cameron Dokey Dec 1 2, 2014A fairy tale that is new to my hearing I was hesitant to read it because I m not a big fan of fairy tales, but I really don t know what I have eaten that made my mind open up this book I guess I just want some new taste of magical story with moral lessons I m now planning to read this Once Upon a Time series or collection of fairy tales I m expecting to discover new fairytales which I haven t seen or learned before I m also [...]


    22. The Storyteller s Daughter is a wonderful story, by far my favorite book Its a different but remarkable telling of the Arabian Nights The book portrays a faraway kingdom, where a king has been betrayed, deeply hurt and bitterly angry, he vows never to be deceived again Unfortunately, the king s plan to protect himself will endanger all of the realm s young women, unless one of them will volunteer to marry the king and surrender her life Sharazada steps forward Now Sharazada is the daughter of M [...]


    23. Cameron Dokey s retellings are always creative and fun to read This is no exception, but it fell short As much as I enjoyed it, it lost me somewhere along the way In the beginning, I was very confused with the names They re all so similar Shahrazad, Shahrayar, Shazaman I got the hang of it after a few chapters, thank goodness.I loved how the book started out Dokey s writing really is beautiful The prologue completely caught my interest A story is alive, as you and I are It s so fitting But not l [...]


    24. As I ve written before, the Once Upon a Time series has been a bit iffy to me I ve enjoyed the concept than the execution, overall Because of that, I was probably lenient with this particular addition I would probably be harsher towards it, otherwise.The Storyteller s Daughter is one of the stronger books in the series, I think It s not perfect The writing style is a bit muddled There is some head hopping The stories within the stories are a little transparent The book held my attention throug [...]


    25. story inspired by the magical and romantic tale of Shahrazad from The Arabian Nights When betrayed by his queen, Shahrayar s heart turns coldly to stone He vows to take a new wife once each month, at the full moon, but to keep her only one night, killing her in the morning Shahrazad, the 17 year old blind daughter of the king s vizier and Maju, a blind storyteller, concocts a plan to reach the king s heart She will begin a story each night that will not be finished in the morning Three stories w [...]


    26. After reading a book in this Once Upon a Time series by a different author with which I was less than impressed, I wasn t sure what to expect when I opened this book Cameron Dokey, however, put my mind at immediate ease with her beautiful writing style, and in 218 pages she weaved an even beautiful story I wasn t familiar with the story of One Thousand and One Nights beyond what was presented in Wishbone, so again I didn t know what to expect All I can say is that I thoroughly enjoyed reading t [...]


    27. My tale was one of a king so foolish he almost lost everything for not being able to see what was right in front of him The entire story can be summed up in that one statement After being betrayed by his wife, a king forgets how to love and trust He closes his heart to the world But since his kingdom needs a queen, he comes up with a plan to marry a maiden every month and kill her the next morning A one night queen It is ridiculous, I know The people of the kingdom, who till now loved their king [...]


    28. This book was not at all what I was expecting which I thought would be a flat, plain retelling of a fairytale I wasn t very interested in hmmm why did I decide to read it in the first place if I was that much of a pessimistuh right, back to the review What a wonderful surprise this book turned out to be In the first few pages it sets the scene, tone and depiction of character The story and subsequent stories in the book as told by Shahazad were just magical Page turning Exquisitely written The c [...]


    29. Based on the Arabian Nights this story is that of a king Shahrayar with a curse that he shall never love again, instead he will take one wife every full moon that will be killed in the morning Then the blind Shahrazad steps forward and makes a plan to tell the king a story that will take many nights to tell, he will love it so much he ll keep her alive to hear the end With stories in the story this is a book that keeps your attention until the last page It has a strong female lead that is well d [...]


    30. I ve always been a fan of fairytales, but The Arabian Nights never really caught my interest until now Cameron Dokey has woven the original story into her own storytelling style and created a wonderful retelling of this tale.Shahrazad is seventeen years old and the daughter of the greatest storyteller of her time But now her famous mother is dead, and she lives with her father, the king s vizier, and her ten year old half sister Dinarzad.Suddenly, Shahrayar, the king of her homeland, is betrayed [...]
