Instant New York Times Bestseller
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.

GREAT I CRY TEARS OF EVERYTHING
This sequel was amazing. There was a lot of twists and turns- which made me love this story way more. The author's writing is my all time fav, she's so poetic and creative when she chooses her words. ALSO THIS BY FAR IS MY FAV ROMANCE COUPLE/STORY EVER. The only thing I have troubled with in this book, is that it's the last book. DUOLOGY??!! Pls write another book Renée, I'm not ready to give up this epic love story and couple of adventures.
