The Wrath and the Dawn
Published: May 12th 2015
This past week, I’ve been in Mexico City for work. It was my first time in Mexico, but I haven’t been able to do any sightseeing. But I did enjoy the awesome Mexican food here. I will come back to this city at least to eat :)But before I do, I promised my self that I’d learn some Spanish.
Everyday after coming back from office, eating good food and reading this book was my routine. However tired I was I made it a point to read at least one or two chapters of this book. It was an easy read and helped me relax a lot.
This book was a page turner from beginning to end. I was completely immersed and enjoyed it a lot. I usually stay away from fantasy, but after listening to such good reviews I had to pick it. This is book one in a two part series and I want to get to the second part asap because the ending leaves you craving for more.
This extract from Goodreads summary says a lot about this book,
This monster is a boy with a tormented heart. Incredibly, Shahrzad finds herself falling in love. How is this possible? It’s an unforgivable betrayal. Still, Shahrzad has come to understand all is not as it seems in this palace of marble and stone.
This is a love-hate type of story, Although it was very clear that love was winning from the very beginning. I just wanted to keep reading to see how Shahrzad keeps surprising Khalid and makes him want her all the more. She wanted revenge in the beginning and kept drifting away from it as she spent more and more time with the calipha of Khorasan. As a reader, you just keep wanting to know Khalid’s secret but you also want to read more about their love and how it evolves with each passing moment. You root for both of them to stay together after all secrets are revealed.
I don’t have pretty pictures of this book as I downloaded the eBook from my library, but the cover is so beautiful and intriguing. I want to get my hands on part 2 now.
Overall, if you are into romantic/mystery reads then this will not disappoint you. It grips you from page 1 itself, I highly recommend it. If I continue to rant more about this book then I might risk leaking some intricate parts of the plot, so I will end this here.
