The Rose and the Dagger
*Sequel to The Wrath and the Dawn*
Author: Renee Ahdieh
Publication Date: May 3rd, 2016

Goodreads Book Description: I am surrounded on all sides by a desert. A guest, in a prison of sand and sun. My family is here. And I do not know whom I can trust.

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.

While her father, Jahandar, continues to play with magical forces he doesn’t yet understand, Shahrzad tries to uncover powers that may lie dormant within her. With the help of a tattered old carpet and a tempestuous but sage young man, Shahrzad will attempt to break the curse and reunite with her one true love.

I am so excited to get my hands on this! I really love The Wrath and the Dawn, it was one of my favorite reads of 2015. Have you read The Wrath and the Dawn? If so, what did you think?  What’s a book you’re highly anticipating? Let me know in the comments.
