Today I'm reading: The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh
" 'They will fight. They should fight. And you will ensure it amounts to nothing. You will do your duty to your king. Do you understand?' " (page 1)
" 'Khalid is not my friend. He is not my enemy, either. He is my king. I remember the boy he was, quite fondly.' " (page 56)
