She wanted to kiss him.No.It was one thing to return his kiss she d been prepared for that But it was another thing entirely to want his kiss another thing entirely to desire his affections To melt into the arms of Shiva s killer at the first sign of adversity.Weak.Retellings should light my imagination on fire They should take the original story, add a twist to it, make it so that we don t feel like we re reading the same old, same old The only twist, the only imaginative reimagining to this b [...]
Make sure they never forget You are the Calipha of Khorasan, and you have the ear of a king She bent forward and lowered her voice And, most important, you are a fearsome thing to behold in your own right My original plan was to finish this book tonight and then write up a review tomorrow, but after that ending, I just can t stop thinking about it and I need to get my thoughts down right now In short I enjoyed this book very much Way than I expected to, to tell the truth And I guess you should [...]

Hm People are loving this much hyped book, but I have rather mixed feelings about this one Things I liked awesome premise, obviously a world very different from what we re used to a few intriguing conversations between women Shazi and Despina, Shazi and Yasmine diversity, yay a few nice action scenes towards the end the romance, which eventually sparked and got me very invested in what s going to happen next Things I wanted of Magic perhaps this will come in the next book Complexity of emotion [...]
SPOILER FREE REVIEW youtube watch v IA4zNReread April 2016STILL AMAZING can t wait to read the next one First reading June 2015Holy crap What a fantastically captivating tale.
I will live to see tomorrow s sunset Make no mistake I swear I will live to see as many sunsets as it takes And I will kill you.With my own hands.Here s what happened I was halfway through this book when I realized that it was slightly late, that the next day I would have to go to work early in the morning and that we humans need sleep in order to survive through the day So, as a farewell to the book and because my curiosity took over, I decided to open the book at a random remaining page and re [...]

The Wrath and the Dawn is every recently amazing YA book thrown into one read Red Queen meets An Ember in the Ashes meets A Court of Thorns and Roses The main difference it has between those books is the amount of action The Wrath definitely set aside action packed scenes for a slower lyrical literature depth.Sharhrzad Shazi is out to seek revenge for the murder of her best friend and decides too volunteer to be the next wife of the Caliph of Khorasan The Caliph is known for being ruthless, hea [...]
I ve been told a good storyteller can trap an audience with a single sentence This review contains spoilers.I picked this book up completely on a whim, and I m so glad that I did I was completely entranced by The Wrath the Dawn The setting was just right, the writing was engaging, and I thought every character brought something important to the story This book felt like it should go on forever, and I was really disappointed when it didn t The Wrath the Dawn follows Shahrzad on a quest to avenge [...]
Actual rating 1.5Do you ever just hear about a book and know without a shadow of a doubt that you will love it That s how I always felt about this book I had seen rave review after rave review Everyone I know LOVES it So I always just knew that I would love it too I was wrong This book was painful to get through From the forced writing style to the lackluster plot and flat characters To say I am disappointed with this book is an understantment I know a lot of people praise the writing style but [...]

MY FAVORITE BOOK OF THE YEAR PERIOD and one of my favorite books EVER The Wrath The Dawn is a lush retelling of 1001 Nights It follows Shahrzad as she seeks revenge for the murder of her best friend by The Monster King of Khorasan, Khalid.So I had just read ACOTAR, and I wasn t expecting another book to top for a long time this year I was actually thinking that it would be my favorite of the year WRONG The Wrath The Dawn hit it it out of the park for me I was actually really excited for this boo [...]
Ohh, i am going to get so much hate for this I am perfectly aware that I am in the minority here Most of my friends adore The Wrath and the Dawn, all of my teachers yes, I share my books with my teacher I m that kid even my grandma s sister has read it AND raves about it I honestly do not understand why, i m afraid to ask her so i m asking you guys Help me please, and try not to hate me I m don t even know how to rate this I don t want to give it 2 stars, because 2 stars is Queen of Shadow and i [...]

Okay to begin by saying this book was glorious is pure injustice But I will say that this story was a waft of fresh air in the young adult trivia The story takes place in the ancient city of khorasan, in a time of magic and mystical existence Maybe one of the main reasons I loved this book so much was the use of Persian origin words My mother tongue being Farsi, this book felt like home Like I was reading a story about my people and my history, even though it leaned towards the influences of Pa [...]
Really a 4.5 because I had some minor issues with it But wow, I loved it I m going to speak about the story with depht in my wrap up, but for now I just want to speak of one characterALID He is so precious, I just want him to be happy Really, he is something special It s been a while since the male protagonist of a book didn t made me roll my eyes with his cheesy lines, but Khalid managed to melt my heart with some quotes that normally would ve made me cringe I was smiling like an idiot, and he [...]
Actual rating is somewhere around 3.5 stars.The Wrath and the Dawn has all the elements of an amazing story It has a strong heroine, intriguing plot, moral ambiguity, a complex cast of characters that inspire all sorts of internal emotional turmoil Basically, set phasers to LET ME LOVE YOU Even for those like me who haven t read A Thousand and One Nights, can appreciate the rich setting and visually stunning descriptions And I can t tell you how happy I am to say that I really enjoyed The Wrath [...]
I actually liked this book.Khalid, the so called King of kings marries often He seems to have a shortage in the bride department Maybe because after their wedding nights the brides are put to their death.Then enter Shahrzad, after her best friend loses her life because she was one of Khalid s brides Shahrzad volunteers to be his wife She has plans on being his last because she is going to off his butt.Once married she survives the marriage by telling him stories She leaves him with a cliffhanger [...]
He was stronger than she was Of that, there was no doubt She could not best him physically But I m not here to fight I m here to win This is going to be difficult to review You see, there wasn t anything wrong with this novel It has an interesting plot, beautiful writing, and great characters.The main problem was me Maybe I ve grown tired of plots going in the same direction MC goes to kill the monster, only to discover things aren t as she thought they were I don t think I can write a proper re [...]
2 stars 3.5 stars 5 STARS Fucked if I know I mrn So I guess I ll leave this at three stars for now This book made me feel a lot of feels But they were conflicting feels On the one hand, this is a beautifully written, atmospheric 1001 Nights retelling rich with imagery On the other hand, a lot of that gorgeous prose is dedicated to showing the reader, over and over again, how indecisive the female lead is You see, she s chosen to marry the king out of vengeance He married and killed her best frie [...]
Dear Ms Ahdieh,I m unsure of how you did it Whatever magic you used to pry open my brain and look inside, I d like to have it as well Because this book was written for me, it is, in many ways, my dream book and encompasses everything I want in a novel So, I would really like to know how you did it.You may have other people fooled but this is not a debut novel This CAN T be a debut novel because, well, THE WRITING IS PERFECT.Again, I ask you to give me some of your witchcraft I promise not to abu [...]
BR with my broken boys favorite specialist, Chelsea click to read her review Useless horrible love triangle now, that s an addition to the original tale that doesn t appeal to me Indeed it was unnecessary and resulted in predictability for the plot Plus, Tariq is an asshole A stupid one at it Fast forward in Shazi s feelings what is it with the fluttering in the stomach after one night So Khalid listened to her story, so what At this point he never showed anything to prove that there s to him t [...]
