I recommend reading The Rose & the Dagger by Renee Ahdieh. Deep within a land on the brink of war, Shahrzad was forced from the arms of her beloved Khalid, the Caliph of Khorasan. Once she thought that Khaled was a monster, a merciless killer of wives, responsible for immeasurable heartache and pain. But when she began to unravel his tangle of secrets, she found an extraordinary man and a love she could not deny. But a curse threatens to keep Shazi and Khalid apart forever. Now that Shazi is reunited with her family, she finds out that there is a deadly force gathered around Khalid, one that is set on destroying Khalid's empire and is led by Shahrzard childhood sweetheart. Trapped between Khalid and a childhood love, the only thing Shazi can do is act. Using the growing magic inside of her as a guide, Shazi sets out to end this horrific war and the terrible curse. To do it, she must evade enemies of her own to stay alive. Shahrzad risks everything to find her way back to her one true love again.
