The much anticipated sequel to the breathtaking New York Times bestseller
THE WRATH AND THE DAWN. 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. Praise for The Wrath and the Dawn 'A
potent page-turner of intrigue and romance' Publishers Weekly 'Don't be
surprised if the pages melt away and you find yourself racing through warm,
golden sands or drinking spiced wine in cool marble courtyards. This is an
intoxicating gem of a story. You will fall in love, just as I did.' Marie
