The Wrath and the Dawn by Renée 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.

Why I’m excited:  I’m super late to the party on this book apparently.  My friend Nereyda shared this with me last week and over the weekend, I read the synopsis and OMG it gave me a serious case of grabby hands. I will drop everything and read this book. The setting sounds exotic and lush and the hero sounds like a very hardened and dark dude. I cannot wait to get this one!
