"Equal of the Sun is a page turner, with plenty of gripping
moments. Here's hoping Amirrezvani will write many more tales
illuminating the incredible history of the Iranians.."
"Expertly woven." --Kirkus
"Amirrezvani's sixteenth century Iran is a world as complex as Shakespeare's London, that seethes with intrigue, passion, and lawlessness, a world where a brilliant young princess, who longs for power denied her as a female, and a servant, with a desire so relentless he half-destroys himself, make a desperate pact to control the government and fate of the country, and in doing so discover their greatest loves and sorrows. In this astonishing novel Amirrezvani reminds us what all human hearts suffer and dare. EQUAL OF THE SUN is an irresistible novel." --Jonis Agee, author of The River Wife
"A dazzling historical novel of ancient Persia, a fairy tale of universal resonance, EQUAL OF THE SUN is a story of love and ambition, loyalty and intrigue, the eternal anguish of a heart--and a country--at war with itself. --Gina Nahai, author of Moonlight on the Avenue of Faith and Caspian Rain
