In My Opinion:

     I fell in love with the main character, Shahrzad, from the very beginning.  Her strength & confidence makes her the perfect heroine for the story.  We sympathize with her from start to finish.  I found myself on the edge of my seat numerous times.  As well as laughing at her quick wit & attitude on more than one occasion.  
     The story telling within the book was mesmerizing.  I felt as if I was sitting there as the words were being spoken directly to me.  There was a steady flow of events & I never found myself bored with the context. With each page, I simply wanted more!

     Shahrzad (Shazi), was not the only character I grew fond of while reading this epic tell of love & vengeance.  Every character I read about turned out to be someone who was wonderfully written.  Even if in a mischievous way.  They all had their place in the story & added to it's success as a whole.

     I would definitely recommend The Wrath & the Dawn to anyone looking for a book full of love, wonderful characters, & brilliant story telling.  The only downfall that I can honestly say came with reading this book is the fact that the next book does not come out until the middle of next year.  I truly felt incomplete once I closed the book for the last time.

My Rating:

5 Cups of Tea (One of the Best!!)
