The Wrath and the Dawn

We rated this book:


Every night Khalid, the Caliph of Khorasan, takes a new wife only to have her killed by dawn. Shahrzad is the first to volunteer to die. She has volunteered so she can kill Khalid, to avenge her best friend Shiva and all those who perished before her; to stop the reign of a monster. Through her wit and sheer dumb luck she manages to survive until the dawn of her first morning and continues to do so, stunning everyone in the kingdom. She continues to captivate the young man with her storytelling at night and with her beauty and sharp tongue in the morning. It seems the boy king has fallen for one who was supposed to die, and Shahrzad is torn between loyalty to her late best friend, and her love for her new husband. If he is such a monster, how can she continue to fall for him? I really enjoyed reading The Wrath and the Dawn because of its appealing love triangle and the struggles that all the characters faced, both internally and externally. I worried that the love triangle would ruin the book but it was quite the opposite, it helped make it even more captivating and I can’t wait to read the sequel!
