      No. He was not here to wreak revenge.For revenge was trifling and hollow.No. He was not here to retrieve his wife.For his wife was not a thing to be retrieved.No. He was not here to negotiate a truce.For a truce suggested he wished to compromise.He was here to burn something to the ground.A very worthy sequel and conclusion to this magical, romantic story.I said in my review of The Wrath & the Dawn that I'm just not much of a romantic person. I hate instalove, most love triangles, and genera [...]

      This book is everything I wanted in a sequel. EVERYTHING. I don't know how Renee Ahdieh managed to make it even more amazing than the already amazing WRATH AND THE DAWN. Black magic, perhaps? Or maybe she's just insanely talented. Whatever the case, I adore this book. It's suspenseful, thoughtful, beautiful and sexy, a perfect follow-up to WRATH.In fact, I think I'm going to go reread it.

      “Cut the strings, Shazi. Fly.”This review contains *spoilers*.The Rose & the Dagger follows the aftermath of the burning in the city of Rey that occured only a week ago. Rey—and its ruler—are vulnerable. Shahrzad and Khalid are separated from one another, yet longing to reunite.Going into this the only thing I was certain of was that I wanted a lot more of Khalid and a lot less of Tariq.And it took some time to get to it, which I didn’t quite enjoy because Tariq continued to frustr [...]

      4:50 AM, just finished. WHAT IS SLEEP.Actual rating: 4.5 stars, for minor issues. I really loved this book <3.

      4.5 Stars The rose’s rarest essence lives in the thorns.The Rose and The Dagger is an exquisite, superb, satisfying and clever finale. It will render you speechless with its intensity. Crush your heart a bit every few pages. Transform you into an addict of its gorgeous prose. But its true beauty lies in the fact that, somehow, you welcome it all with open arms. If you don't get along with romance, shy away. Seriously, shoo. I'm just putting it like it is -- the romance and love story are what [...]

      This review is about The Rose & the Dagger, but I can't help but dedicate a few lines to the tragedy that hit Turkey last night. A couple of hours ago, my cheeks were stained with hot tears, because this book was gut-wrenching. But even more gut-wrenching were the minutes I spent later watching the news and shedding more tears, this time mourning the innocent victims and the fate of humankind. Humanity is a strange species, capable of hatred, and capable of love. It saddens me that we mostly [...]

      4.5* SPOILER FREE REVIEW: youtube/watch?v=KUv30I did really enjoy this one, not quite as much as the first one but I think it was overall a really great duology!

      Find me on Instagram & Twitter!❝She belonged in a palace of marble and stone. A queen, in her own right. With a boy-king who loved her, as she loved him.❞Rating: ★ ★ ★★★This was such a beautiful ending to a magical story. The Rose and the Dagger did not disappoint one bit. Although I felt that this book was not as great as the first, it was still every bit as majestic as The Wrath and the Dawn.The Rose and the Dagger is filled with many twists and turns, swooning (mostly over [...]

      The Rose & the Daggerwas definitely a satisfying sequel to one of my favorite reads of 2015! It was so nice to be back in this beautiful world with some of my favorite characters. I do preferThe Wrath & the Dawnbut I'm happy with the conclusion to this duology!I chose to listen to the audiobook of this novel, which I think was a mistake on my part. This series can require extra attention when being read physically for me due to the flowing prose, so the detachment I sometimes get from li [...]

      I wonder what a conversation with Renée Adhieh would be like. I could picture her in front of me, drinking tea perhaps, in a graceful manner and, of course, telling stories as though reliving them on the spot. As for me? I would be the listener, enraptured by her words, nodding my head every two seconds, my body still and my eyes fixed on her.Except that would not be a conversation exactly, now would it? And I’m guessing my staring would be borderline creepy. Though there is no shame in being [...]

      ❝It was because they were two parts of a whole. He did not belong to her. And she did not belong to him. It was never about belonging to someone. It was about belonging together.❞Rating: ★★★★**THIS REVIEW CONTAINS ONE SPOILER FROM BOOK 1 AND ONE OR TWO FROM THIS BOOK**This was the kind of book that left me asking myself What do I do with my life now?and also Why hadn't I started the 1st book before?The ending was a beautiful and magical ending. But this book had all those swinging mo [...]

      “I’ve missed the silence of you listening to me.” Shahrzad attempted a weak smile. “No one listens to me as you do." His expression turned quizzical. “You don’t wait to speak,” she clarified. “You truly listen.”To make matters clear: if you loved or, anyway, truly enjoyed The Wrath and the Dawn, then you'll love this too. It is everything a devoted fan could ask of a series conclusion.My problem was -is- that Shahrzad and Khalid's relationship never spoke to me; actually, I thi [...]

      A fitting conclusion for a book filled with cautionary tales. Full review to come.

      Arabian Nights are fast thrilling epic stories mixing with a passionate love story, that really takes you a whole new worldAnd this different retelling still one of the kind that worth your timeete with Love, curse, Black MagicBUT it didn't live up to the epic that start building up in book one and its grand endingFor a duology it could've been faster, more focused. yet book two's missing sparksless magical storiesless fiery love.The biggest reason of enjoying this book was that I loved the char [...]

      Possibly more of a 4.5/5 starsI AM REALLY EMOTIONAL RIGHT NOW OKAY?I really loved this, but I don't think I loved it as much as TWATD.The world building and plot and characters were still ON POINT and FAB, but things felt like they moved a little too fast and jumped around a bit too much.Regardless, I thought this was a really solid sequel and I enjoyed it so much. Definitely cried a few times. The writing was as beautiful as ever, SO GORG. I want to take quotes from this book and write them and [...]

      Soooo Shahrzad is beautiful. Like really beautiful. Did you know Shahrzad is beautiful?Everyone thinks about Shahrzad's beauty when they see her She also has a temper but it's okay because she's pretty. Pretty. PRETTY!!!So yeah this wasn't for me.

      I just found out this is a duology. Good! My heart can't take another cliffhanger like that.I NEED THE BOOK NOW. NOT IN A FREAKING YEAR.

      this book gave me aladdin feels10/10 would recommendbut seriously SUCH AN AMAZING CONCLUSION HOLY CRAP. I think this is my absolute favorite duology ever.

    20. Stacee on said:

      This was absolutely stunning. It is different from Wrath, but I loved it just as much. It's filled with swoons and action and heartbreak and twists and I loved every single page of it. Perhaps I'll write a coherent review when release gets closer.

      LOVED THIS BOOK! SUCH AN AMAZING DUOLOGY! IM SO SAD ITS OVER BUT I SO ENJOYED THE RIDE! DO YOU GUYS WANT A REVIEW VIDEO ON THIS?!

    22. Aj the Ravenous Reader on said:

      No, The Rose and the Dagger is far from being perfect but the prose is such a brilliant, beautiful narrative making this series an unforgettable, thrilling, adventurous, fantasy- romance. I savored every remarkable moment, every dazzling word and every stirring emotion in the story. It makes me want to sing Disney songs and twirl. It’s true, this series can be considered sappy, cheesy and even melodramatic but it’s just so beautifully written that it seems to have this disabling effect on me [...]

      Stunning cover is stunning. I think I love it more than the first one.

    24. Joel (Throne of books) on said:

      Another one bites the dust. To say I'm disappointed, is a huge understatement. Last year, THE WRATH & THE DAWN was one of my favorite reads of the year. This year however, with this sequel, it is being added to my disappointing sequels list. Don't get me wrong, I did enjoy it. But I did not love it. Once again Renée's writing is absolutely mesmerizing. But the story? Slow and a little boring. It wasn't until about the last 130 pages that the pace picked up and I started enjoying it a bit mo [...]

      "Where is your heart, Sharzad al-Khayzuran?" His voice was course in its insistence.In an alley by the souk. In a night of oblivion.In the promise of tomorrow." Initial reaction: Well, I finally finished this after weeks of reading slump. I'm giving this a generous four stars because I had some problems with it, but really really wanted to love it the way I loved the first book. Renee Ahdieh is an amazing romance writer, but a not so amazing fantasy writer, in my opinion. Nevertheless, this book [...]

      3.5 StarsOverview: “It was because they were two parts of a whole. He did not belong to her. And she did not belong to him. It was never about belonging to someone. It was about belonging together.” Just like the first book, I’m conflicted. There were parts I loved and parts I thought were very unnecessary. Pros:Surprisingly, I really loved the relationship between Shazi and Khalid. In the first book, I had a lot of issues with it ethically, and while those issues are still kind of there, [...]

The writing is beautiful and the story has depth. Characters are developped, there is sadness and despair, there is tragedy. There is also love, magic and hope.
