Do you ever find yourself wishing for a book to turn into a person so you can marry it? That’s how I feel about this book. It’s so perfect. Renée Ahdieh is a goddess, her writing style is divine. Her writing gave the right lilt to this magical tale inspired by A Thousand and One Nights. This is so good, too good for a debut.
Everything about this book is beautiful, the story, the characters, the setting, EVERYTHING. It has truly enchanted me with it’s magic. This is so amazing everyone needs to read it. Make your friend read it, make your mom read it, read it to your pet, just please. This book deserves all of the literary awards of awesomeness.
Every single element has found it’s rightful place, everything is so well-woven together. The characters and the stories behind them give life to the plot and setting beautifully. AND CAN WE JUST TAKE A MOMENT TO APPRECIATE THE MAJESTIC AND IMPOSSIBLY CUTE CALIPH AND CALIPHA OF KHORASAN?
I will die fighting and manning this ship. And the story, and the plot twists, I’M GONNA DIEEEEE. Everything about this book is making me crazy.
Is it just me or every single first book in either a series, trilogy or duology ends with a cliffhanger? That I-will-sacrifice-my-first-born-child-to-get-the-next-book kind of cliffhanger. *silently cursing every single author that has done this* That ending though! I am in desperate need of The Rose and the Dagger which doesn’t come out until next year. LIKE WHY?! WHAT HAVE I DONE TO BE PUNISHED LIKE THIS?
I totally, highly, extremely recommend this. The Wrath and the Dawn is a MUST read.
How could a boy with legions of secrets behind walls of ice and stone burn her with nothing more than his touch?
Do not live in fear, Khalid-jan, for that is not a life.
Some things exist in our lives for but a brief moment. And we must let them go on to light another sky.
To want something so much?to hold it in your arms?and know beyond a doubt you will never deserve it.
