Princess Pari and Eunuch Javaher Battle for the Throne in Old Iran: Equal of the Sun

Equal of the Sun, Anita Amirrezvani

I was fortunate to have the opportunity last spring to read an advance copy of Anita Amirrezvani’s historical novel, Equal of the Sun. I was so enthralled by this exotic story set in seventeenth-century Iran that I couldn’t put it down. Yes, this is fiction at its finest. Bound to become a bestseller.

For every writer, this book is a place where a master storyteller shows you how to make characters come alive in stunning detail, as Amirrezvani weaves an undeniably engrossing tale.

Amirrezvani’s impressive writing moves through a fast-paced and fascinating story of struggle for the throne of Iran. When the Shah’s daughter and protégé Princess Pari and her trusted advisor Javaher, a self-made eunuch, learn of her beloved father’s death, a battle of epic proportions begins.

Pari and Javaher confront a court of unscrupulous men, who lust for power at any cost, to stake out a place for her, a mere woman, in the fiery tapestry of old Iran where senseless murder and intrigue flow through rich nuance and horrifying detail. Together the princess Pari and the eunuch Javaher—both powerful and powerless, each in his own way—compel attention and give rise to questions of the nature of each character’s intent and motivation as they embrace their stormy destiny.
