Friday 56: May 15

I love meme that are quick, easy and require minimal effort on my part. So I decided to give this Friday 56, hosted by Freda's Voice, a try. 




The rules:
  1. Grab a book, any book. 
  2. Turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader (If you have to improvise, that's ok.)
  3. Find any sentence, (or few, just don't spoil it)
  4. Post it.
  5. Add your (url) post at Freda's Voice
  6. It's that simple.


What book I chose: The Wrath & The Dawn


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.




The 56

" The boy of ice and stone...
Who dashed her heart against a jagged stone, only to walk away without so much as a glance.
I will not let him win. For Shiva's sake. 
For my sake. 
I will learn the truth. Even if I have to destroy him to get it. "
