This is a weekly meme held by Breaking the Spine where you showcase something that you are excited for that is soon to be released.
This week I’m talking about The Rose and the Dagger, the next book in the Wrath and the Dawn series by Renee Ahdieh which will be released May 3rd 2016. Don’t read the summary unless you’ve read book one, because it does contain spoilers.
In a land on the brink of war, Shahrzad has been torn from the love of her husband Khalid, the Caliph of Khorasan. She once believed him a monster, but his secrets revealed a man tormented by guilt and a powerful curse—one that might keep them apart forever. Reunited with her family, who have taken refuge with enemies of Khalid, and Tariq, her childhood sweetheart, she should be happy. But Tariq now commands forces set on destroying Khalid’s empire. Shahrzad is almost a prisoner caught between loyalties to people she loves. But she refuses to be a pawn and devises a plan.
