Girl, Serpent, Thorn is a thrilling and adventurous fictional novel by Melissa Bashardoust. This book is about a girl named Soraya, she is cursed with poison in her veins which deprive her of touch. Soraya meets a soldier named Azad, he gains her trust and feeds her lies about her family. Soon these lies get to her and she betrays her family. Soraya gets captured by Azad, and comes up with a plan to overthrow Azad from her family’s throne.
I love the way the author mixes love and passion with bravery and the way she tells the story from Soraya’s perspective. I also love the way the author describes Soraya’s character development, from how Soroya is dependent on everything around her, she is scared and lonely, but then she starts to grow independent and brave. I recommend this book to anyone looking for a book with all the literary elements. That is why I rate Girl, Serpent, Thorn a 5/5.
