A young woman seeks to end the pattern of murders of each of the king’s new brides.

Khalid is the young Caliph of Khorasan with a deep dark secret and is feared by his people. Each day he takes a new bride and each morning she is executed. Shahrzad is the next bride in line and she vows to break the cycle after her best friend met the same horrible fate. Will her charm and wisdom help her make it through the dawn?

The Wrath and the Dawn is filled with a beautifully colorful culture and sprinkled with magic. Ahdieh masterfully weaves her tale with plenty of mystery and some well-placed cliffhangers. This book is a fantastic retelling of the classic A Thousand and One Nights (also known as Arabian Nights).
