But she does so with a clever plan to stay alive and exact revenge on the Caliph for the murder of her best friend and countless other girls. Shazi’s wit and will, indeed, get her through to the dawn that no others have seen, but with a catch . . . she’s falling in love with the very boy who killed her dearest friend.

I love the story and plot. I got pulled into this story and finished it in 2 days!
This book is great. The ending sort of confused me but all in all a good read 🤗
Cliffhanger of heartbreak
With hopes of them finding love I find my dreams crushed as I search for more of this marvelous gripping story that held me so closely until the too short end full of unanswered questions.
