The Rose & the Dagger by Renee Ahdieh
The Wrath and the Dawn #2
Published April 26th 2016

The darker the sky, the brighter the stars.

In a land on the brink of war, Shahrzad is forced from the arms of her beloved husband, the Caliph of Khorasan. She once thought Khalid a monster—a merciless killer of wives, responsible for immeasurable heartache and pain—but as she unraveled his secrets, she found instead an extraordinary man and a love she could not deny. Still, a curse threatens to keep Shazi and Khalid apart forever.

Now she’s reunited with her family, who have found refuge in the desert, where a deadly force is gathering against Khalid—a force set on destroying his empire and commanded by Shazi’s spurned childhood sweetheart. Trapped between loyalties to those she loves, the only thing Shazi can do is act. Using the burgeoning magic within her as a guide, she strikes out on her own to end both this terrible curse and the brewing war once and for all. But to do it, she must evade enemies of her own to stay alive.

The saga that began with The Wrath and the Dawn takes its final turn as Shahrzad risks everything to find her way back to her one true love again.

The Wrath & the Dawn was one of my top favorite books last year so it kinda kills me I haven't been able to get my hands on The Rose and the Dagger yet. I hope I can get it soon, though. Or maybe find it in a bookstore this summer. I want to read is so badly but on the other hand I'll be sad when I have read it because it's only a duology so this is the last book. Very sad.
