This book was gifted for free by the publisher in return for an honest reivew.
I’ve got to start by saying that this book is so different from anything else I’ve read lately, and it was quite refreshing.
The concept is interesting. A Tudor Turk is set in Istanbul in 1591, and follows the story of Will and Awa. It’s unusual to find historical YA novels, but after enjoying A Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue, I can really see how the idea works.
I fell in love with Will and Awa throughout the book and really felt a bond with the characters. I found it fascinating to read about the different historical events and I really think this is an interesting way to spread knowledge of history! I’d rather learn about history when it is mixed in with fiction than sit down with a textbook!
The novel is constantly exciting, and it kept me gripped right up until the end.
I really can’t wait to see how the story progresses in the second book!
