#1 New York Times Bestseller

A sumptuous and epically told love story inspired by A Thousand and One Nights

Every dawn brings horror to a different family in a land ruled by a killer. Khalid, the eighteen-year-old Caliph of Khorasan, takes a new bride each night only to have her executed at sunrise. So it is a suspicious surprise when sixteen-year-old Shahrzad volunteers to marry Khalid. But she does so with a clever plan to stay alive and exact revenge on the Caliph for the murder of her best friend and countless other girls. Shazi’s wit and will, indeed, get her through to the dawn that no others have seen, but with a catch . . . she’s falling in love with the very boy who killed her dearest friend.

She discovers that the murderous boy-king is not all that he seems and neither are the deaths of so many girls. Shazi is determined to uncover the reason for the murders and to break the cycle once and for all.

Customer Reviews

The Wrath & The Dawn’s Beauty

Where do I start? This book is absolutely spectacular! The way Renée Ahdieh has vividly described the details from the food’s aromas to the sequences on the dresses is amazing. I tried reading the original Arabian Nights and it was a difficult read, then I saw this book gaining popularity. So I was like, “Why not, it’s probably a time-pass read” but I was so wrong. This is so much more than “just a read”. I have now read this book for the fourth time and it just gets more captivating, adventures, and different every time I read it. Hence, thank you Renée Ahdieh for providing us with such a romantic, extraordinary, and beautiful book!


My entire life of reading of YA I’ve seen a spiral of the same things, but this stops the spiral and creates its own beautiful pattern. It shows incredible designs of fashion,belief,love from an entire different world then I’m used to. I’ve repeatedly read this book/series,and I’m always amazed and loving every perspective. The author is incredibly talented.

Biting and Brilliant

Renee Ahdieh has created a believable world with magical fringes. From the protagonist’s silver tongue to the savagery of mankind, this moving tale is smart and stirring. Brilliant.
