Title: The Crown and the Arrow
Series: The Wrath and the Dawn, #0.5
Author: Renée Ahdieh
“Do not fear what the setting sun may bring. Where there is a setting sun, there is also a rising one.”
Until next time….
I can’t believe that two months of 2016 have already past. I haven’t even gotten used to writing 2016 on my papers yet.
Anyway, March is rolling around and that means more books!
I’m still on a book buying ban (unfortunately), but I’m still excited for these books.
“What are you doing to me, you plague of a girl?” he whispered.
“If I’m a plague, then you should keep your distance, unless you plan on being destroyed.” The weapons still in her grasp, she shoved against his chest.
“No.” His hands dropped to her waist. “Destroy me.”
The Wrath and the Dawn by Renée Ahdieh is a retelling of A Thousand and One Nights. The Caliph of Khorasan (a.k.a. the king of the land), Khalid, takes a wife every night only to have her killed at dawn. After her best friend was killed like the rest of the wives, Shahrzad forms a plan to avenge her. She volunteers to become the Caliph’s next wife. In order to ensure that she’ll live to see another day, Shahrzad tells Khalid a story every night only to end it at dawn, leaving the boy-king breathless to know what was going to happen next.
Shahrzad’s plan goes smoothly, except for one thing: Khalid wasn’t what she expected. How could she kill him if she starting to fall for him?
