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.
Retelling! Retelling! I can’t get enough of them. Here’s another one that I can’t wait to have. The blurb says it all. I really think that this would be full of excitement and mysteries to unravel. Seen a lot of friends who’s so excited to have this too. The result of my search for this on Google was a list of a huge number of Waiting on Wednesday posts so that’s really saying a lot. Haven’t checked ARC reviews though. I don’t want them to ruin how excited I am. They might include spoilers so NO. Lol! 😀
Look at this cool map that Renee posted on her Instagram!
Unfortunately, there were no recent giveaways for the book so that’s sad. Sigh. 😦
