REVIEW: The Rose & the Dagger by Renne Ahdieh
Shahrzad feels trapped between her loyalties but is driven into action. Using her newfound magic, she plans to tackle her challenges together, lifting the hated curse and ceasing the brewing war. To do so, Shahrzad will have to evade enemies at every turn, learn who to trust, and make some hard choices.
The story comes to a stellar conclusion in The Rose & the Dagger. Fans of the first book won't be disappointed in this adventurous, well written sequel. It is certainly high on magic, romance, adventure and intrigue. Readers will laugh and cry during this action packed narrative. There are bittersweet moments, great tragedies and a great message.
My favorite part was perhaps the realization to the Big Bad that all his callous plans were toppled by three beautiful, intelligent and strong women. Loved that part!
Final rating: 4 out of 5 stars
