The Wrath & The Dawn - Renee Ahdieh

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.


A love story inspired by A Thousand And One Nights? Yes please! Looking forward to reading this one, as with all retellings I'm intrigued to see how they do it.

  3. This book makes me want May to just come already! The whole premise is just enrapturing- a story of revenge, murder, kings and based on A Thousand and One Nights- *sigh* sooo excited!
    Plus who doesn't love a reluctant romance filled with tension or fairytale retellings?;)
    Lovely pick:)
