Summary
Hassan, palace mapmaker in the royal court of Granada, has a secret: he can draw maps of places he's never seen and bend the shape of reality. When representatives of the newly formed Spanish monarchy arrive to negotiate the sultan's surrender, Fatima, a concubine in the court, befriends one of the women, not realizing that she will see Hassan's gift as sorcery and a threat to Christian Spanish rule. With their freedoms at stake, what will Fatima risk to save Hassan and escape the palace walls? Traversing Spain with the help of a clever jinn to find safety, what is the price of of their freedom? -- adapted from jacket
