Waiting on Wednesday (7)

Waiting on Wednesday is a featured post hosted by Breaking the Spine that discusses upcoming releases that bloggers are excited about. 


This week's book I am looking forward to in 2016 is:


Author: Renee Ahdieh
Expected Release Date: May 3rd, 2016
Publisher: Putnam Juvenile
Pages: 432

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.

    1. it is?! WHAT! i did not know that! well i don't know if that makes me more excited for it now or more nervous to read it! it's been a long time since I've read a duology, i feel like more times than not authors end up making their books into trilogies.
      Thanks for filling me in! i'm curious to see how this turns out!
      And thanks for stopping by Irena! happy reading!

    1. Oh I so hope that changes soon! the first book is absolutely fantastic. my favorite part about her writing is that it's so descriptive, and even if the book didn't have such a swoon worthy couple I would still likely love it for the imagery alone!
      Thanks for stopping by my post! I hope you get to read it soon! Let me know what you think if you do!!
