The much anticipated sequel to the breathtaking The Wrath and the Dawn, lauded by Publishers Weekly as “a potent page-turner of intrigue and romance.”

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.

Praise for The Rose and the Dagger:

“Above all there is the shattering, triumphant catharsis of love… In a story about stories, love is ‘the power to speak without words.’ Thrillingly full of feeling.”—Kirkus Reviews 

“Fiery romance, a spirited heroine, shifting loyalties… With more than a few heartrending twists and turns.”—Booklist

  1. I have a friend who’s reading The Rose & The Dagger, and she loves it! 🙂

    (Also, I am a dork who messed up my TBR list and accidentally clicked over to my currently reading list before I copied the URL. I’m so sorry! D:)

  2. I cannot WAIT to read this book!! *cheers wildly* My copy is hopefully in the mail and speeding along to me. :’) EEEEP. My only sadness is that it’s a duology and I really hoped for more books. ? Buuuut, I’m sure this book will be thoroughly perfect and I’ll have nothing to worry about. ;D

      ohhhh…that IS sad (the duology). There is something lonely about only 2 books in a series. 🙂
