The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh ( Abe Book)

I started a new job and I am commuting so I am listening to this title on audio book. I haven't listened to an audio book in YEARS. I have been enjoying it so far. This is one the Abe Lincoln list so I wanted to try and read it before voting begins in March.

Amazon Summary

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.
