The Rose and the Dagger

The much anticipated sequel to the breathtaking New York Times bestseller THE WRATH AND THE DAWN.

A potent page-turner of intrigue and romance’ Publishers Weekly

‘This is an intoxicating gem of a story. You will fall in love, just as I did.’ Marie Lu, New York Times bestselling author of the Legend series and The Young Elites

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. Reunited with her family 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.

When 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.

Set against a backdrop of political intrigue and a simmering revolution, this is a carefully constructed narrative of uncertain loyalties, searing romance, and subtle magic in a harsh desert city.
Booklist, starred review
Don't be surprised if the pages melt away and you find yourself racing through warm, golden sands or drinking spiced wine in cool marble courtyards. This is an intoxicating gem of a story. You will fall in love, just as I did.
Marie Lu, <i>New York Times</i> bestselling author of the <i>Legend</i> series and <i>The Young Elites</i>
Dreamily romantic, deliciously angst-y, addictively thrilling.
Kirkus Reviews
Lushly imagined and powerfully characterized, it's a potent page-turner of intrigue and romance.
Publishers Weekly
In her absorbing debut, Renée Ahdieh spins a tale as mesmerizing as that of her heroine Shahrzad, filled with lush details and brimming with tension. The Wrath and the Dawn is truly an exceptional story, beautifully written.
