Seventy-one days and seventy-one nights had come and gone since Khalid began killing his brides. This dawn, Khalid would mark the loss of the seventy-second girl, Shahrzad al-Khayzuran. Khalid didn’t know how many more of these dawns he could take. And there was something about this latest girl that piqued his interest. Not only had she volunteered to marry him, but at their wedding ceremony, she had seemed not the least bit afraid. In fact, what he had seen in her eyes was nothing short of pure hatred. She was about to lose her life. Why wasn’t she afraid? Why did she hate him so? He had never before gone to his wife’s chambers before her death at dawn. Tonight would be different.

Fun and shoet
This is way to short wanted the whole book form his POV - that being said, loved it for what it was and this author made me fall hard for the characters so I am not surprised that I would want more. Worth the read (:
I would sell my kidney for a whole book in khalid's perspective.
The Crown and the Arrow
Ok so first off, a big shout out to Wrath and the Dawn!! I absolutely loved Shazi and Khalid!! As some of you know this book, this short story revolves around Khalid. We get to see clearer and deeper meaning of how Khalid saw Shazi in his own eyes and mind. And I loved that. Although it was particularly short (like 21 pages), (ehm hence the 4 stars). But none of the less this short book is a must read!! It defiantly fulfills its purpose of giving you a tiny taste of Khalid's personality and perspective!!
