Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that people are excited for! Tell me what you’re waiting on this week in the comments below!
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.
I’ve been waiting for this since the moment I closed the wrath and the dawn. The wrath and the dawn was my favorite fantasy book last year next to the raven boys and I absolutely loved every second of it. I’m glad there’s only going to be two books because frankly I’m just sick of the never ending book series trend that’s going on lately.
Are you anxiously awaiting the Rose and the Dagger? What are you waiting on this Wednesday?
