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.


No words can describe how excited I am to read The Wrath and the Dawn! Did you read that blurb?! Oh gosh, it sounds EPIC! In honesty, once I saw the tag “retelling,” my attention was piqued. But once the words THE ARABIAN NIGHTS retelling comes into the equation… I NEED it!! May, you really need to hurry up and get here NOW!


What do you think? And what are you waiting on this week?
