The Wrath & the Dawn

One Life to One Dawn.

In
a land ruled by a murderous boy-king, each dawn brings heartache to a
new family. Khalid, the eighteen-year-ols Caliph of Khorasan, is a
monster. Each night he takes a new bride only to have a silk cord
wrapped around her throat come morning. When sisteen-year-old Shahrzad's
dearest friend falls victim to Khalid, Shahrzad vows vengeance. She
knows just how to get it: by volunteering to be his next bride. Shahrzad
is determined not only to stay alive, but to end the caliph's reign of
terror once and for all.

Night after night, Shahrzad beguiles
Khalid, weaving stories that both enchant and ensure her survival,
though she knows each dawn could be herlast. But something she never
expected begins to happen: Khalid is nothing like what she'd imagined
him to be. This monster is a boy with a tormented heart, and incredibly,
Shahrzad finds herself falling in love. It's an unforgivable betrayal,
but Shahrzad has come to understand all is not as it seems in this
palace of marble and stone. She resolves to uncover whatever secrets
lurk and, despite her love, be ready to take Khalid's life as
retribution for the many lives he's stolen. Can their love survive this
world of stories and secrets?

Inspired by A Thousand and One Nights, The Wrath and the Dawn is a sumptuous and enthralling read from beginning to end.
