A sumptuous, epic 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 terrible 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 get her through to the dawn that no others have seen, but with a catch... she may be falling in love with a murderer.

Reviews for Wrath and the Dawn (#1 Wrath and the Dawn)

An exceptional story, beautifully written -- Carrie Ryan, New York Times bestselling author of The Forest of Hands and Teeth Lushly imagined and powerfully characterized, it's a potent page-turner of intrigue and romance. Publishers Weekly Set against a backdrop of political intrigue and a simmering revolution, this is a carefully constructed narrative of uncertain loyalties, searing romance, and subtle magic in a harsh desert city. Booklist, starred review Dreamily romantic, deliciously angst-y, addictively thrilling. Kirkus Reviews Ahdieh weaves a world that is lush with detail. You will want to hear, taste, and touch everything. But it's not just the world that is vividly alive. The characters are fascinating too: I loved the friendships, romance, and shifts in feeling. A beautifully written book, The Wrath and the Dawn is a story I could not put down. -- Marie Rutkoski, author of The Winner's Trilogy Don't be surprised if the pages melt away and you find yourself racing through warm, golden sands or drinking spiced wine in cool marble courtyards.
