This inventive young adult retelling of The Arabian Nights walks a delicate line in its depiction of a monstrous man, but puts the power in the hands of a courageous heroine who is determined to stop the senseless brutalities inflicted upon so many women * TIME Magazine, 100 Best Fantasy Novels of All Time * An exceptional story, beautifully written A beautifully written book, The Wrath and the Dawn is a story I could not put down 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. Lushly imagined and powerfully characterized, it's a potent page-turner of intrigue and romance * Publishers Weekly * Set against a backdrop of political intrigue and a simmering revolution, this is a carefully constructed narrative of uncertain loyalties, searing romance, and subtle magic in a harsh desert city * Booklist, starred review * Dreamily romantic, deliciously angst-y, addictively thrilling * Kirkus Reviews *
