Curse of Zohreh/Masson, Sophie/Paper/1741660726/S007-B
Random House Australia
Revenge, magic, love and hatred - and a curse so powerful it has lasted for centuries.
In the desert kingdom of Ameerat, the al-Farouk family lives in luxury in a beautiful palace. But their great wealth comes at a terrible price - the curse of Zohreh, laid on the family 100 years earlier by another merchant who was cheated of her riches, and manifesting itself in a horrible death by fire that strikes certain members of the family. Khaled al-Farouk, the eldest son of the family, is desperate to make amends for the wrong done by his ancestor, but ZohrehÆs descendants are nowhere to be found.
Or so they think. For far away in Parsari, Soheila, one of the younger members of ZohrehÆs clan, has vowed to revenge her ancestor. She leaves her home early one morning, dressed as a boy, and makes the long journey across land and sea to Ameerat, where she manages to inflitrate the al-Farouk household to await her moment of retribution.
And so begins an amazing, exciting, moving, scary, and humorous adventure that will take Khaled and Soheila right into the heart of the Arabian Nights, into the strange world of the jinns as well as dangerous human intrigues, to great danger, suspense, and a stunning climax.
