Waiting on Wednesday: The Rose & the Dagger by Renee Ahdieh {116}

Title: The Rose & the Dagger
Author: Renee Ahdieh
Release date: April 26, 2016
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'm totally late in coming to this party, but I'm so excited for this! I read The Wrath & the Dawn late last year and so enjoyed it, so my little hands need this, like, now. I can't imagine all of y'all who read it early waiting for it! :)

 So what are you guys waiting on this week? :)
