Instant New York Times Bestseller The much anticipated sequel to the breathtaking The Wrath and the Dawn, lauded by Publishers Weekly as "a potent page-turner of intrigue and romance." 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.… (mere)

“For it was easy to be good and kind in times of plenty. The trying times were the moments that defined a man.”

This is a fitting conclusion to the amazing duology. It is every bit as beautifully written and captivating as the first one. There is definitely less romance and flirtation in this one, because the time for those has passed. It’s all about working together to break the curse, protect the loved ones and rebuild the city. There is a lot of growth in the characters of Khalid and Shazi. Shazi truly embodies the calipha of Khorasan even when she is not among her people or allies. Khalid becomes more trusting of his love. The conflict between Khalid and Tariq is thrilling and I was praying that one wouldn’t hurt the other. Shazi’s sister Irsa is introduced who is initially quite fearful but comes into her own at a very crucial moment. There is betrayal, heartbreak and conspiracy here, along with flying carpets, magical serpents and murderous books. The author shocks us with plenty of jaw dropping moments right till the end and I devoured all of them. And the ending is amazing – all characters showing what they are truly made of. Thank you my favorite booktuber @ Thoughts on Tomes for finally making me read this series which was lying on my TBR pile forever. Can’t believe I missed it till now. Better late than never!!!!

I don't know if I liked this one more than the first but it was still good. The end felt a bit rushed to me and there was one thing that I didn't think needed to happen. I guess it just didn't hit me like the author wanted it to. It was still emotional but not all for the reason the author wanted.

I still really liked a lot of these characters. Tariq was better but I still think he's dumb. For me, Shazi's dad at the end still didn't redeem himself but that's fine.

I still loved the setting. The descriptions are awesome. Artan was a great addition as well. It was a good read. ( )

After finishing the Wrath and the Dawn I immediately picked up a copy of it's sequel. I was excited to jump back into this heroic tale. In all honestly I set my expectations too high. Although I enjoyed the book and the story, I was a bit disappointed with the way the story shifted. It could have been my selfish motives wanting more romance, but I wasn't as thrilled by the sequel as the first book. I will say that the story offers up much excitement and magical adventures. If you read the first book, I think must readers will still enjoy the follow-up, as it explore some unanswered questions created in the debut novel.
