A sumptuous and epically told love story inspired by A Thousand and One Nights
Every dawn brings horror to a different family in a land ruled by a killer. Khalid, the eighteen-year-old Caliph of Khorasan, takes a new bride each night only to have her executed at sunrise. So it is a suspicious surprise when sixteen-year-old Shahrzad volunteers to marry Khalid. But she does so with a clever plan to stay alive and exact revenge on the Caliph for the murder of her best friend and countless other girls. Shazi's wit and will, indeed, get her through to the dawn that no others have seen, but with a catch . . . she’s falling in love with the very boy who killed her dearest friend.
She discovers that the murderous boy-king is not all that he seems and neither are the deaths of so many girls. Shazi is determined to uncover the reason for the murders and to break the cycle once and for all.
If you’re looking for a book that gets right down to business from page one, drop everything because The Wrath and the Dawn is exactly what you need.
This is a story filled with action, adventure, and an epic romance that keeps you on the edge of your seat, while swooning all the while.
“What are you doing to me, you plague of a girl?” he whispered.
“If I’m a plague, then you should keep your distance, unless you plan on being destroyed.” The weapons still in her grasp, she shoved against his chest.
“No.” His hands dropped to her waist. “Destroy me.”
It’s all comes down to the writing. Renée Ahdieh’s writing made me feel like I was living this story along with it’s characters; this book had a very opulent feel, with captivating imagery.
The Wrath and the Dawn was a tantalizing amuse-bouche for my reading palette. And I am very eager for more.
Can I please have more?

Or, ‘You honestly expect me to breath in a world without book 2?’
