Summary of “The Wrath and the Dawn”:
Every dawn brings horror to a different family in a land ruled by a killer. Khalid, the eighteen-year-old Caliph of Khorasan, takes a new bride each night only to have her executed at sunrise. So it is a suspicious surprise when sixteen-year-old Shahrzad volunteers to marry Khalid. 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.
Letter from the author:
There are not enough words to express how thrilled I am to share THE WRATH AND THE DAWN with you! From the moment I typed the first word, I felt connected to Shahrzad and her world in a way that carried me through the long process of publication to where we are today. Everything about this process has been a dream come true, and hope you love my book half as much as I enjoyed writing it.
In celebration of release day, I’ll be giving away a signed, first edition hardcover of the book, as well as a gorgeous scarf . . . or two!
