The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
The Caliph of Khalid marries a new girl everyday and has her killed each morning. Shahrzad volunteers to be a bride, with her own plan to kill the king in revenge for her cousin's death. Neither one of them expects the other. What is different about Shazi is the key to possible change, but secrets, fear, and other's desire for revenge will hamper the love that could grow between them.
What a great retelling. I enjoyed this, but it is a series starter, and hasn't completely ended, at all.
