waiting on wednesday: the rose & the dagger

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly feature hosted over at Breaking the Spine!

This week's pick: The Rose & The Dagger
Renée Ahdieh

release date: April 26

(spoilers for book 1) 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.

THIS BOOK IS COMING OUT SO SOON!!!! I am literally dancing about as I type this because I cannot wait to see what's next for Shazi and Khalid. The Wrath and the Dawn was one of my favorite books of 2015, so I can only gope that the sequel will be just as amazing :)

what are you waiting on this week?
