One of my forever favourite stories brings Shazi and Khalid as the new illustrated book couple. The duology where they come alive is The Wrath & The Dawn and its sequel The Rose & The Dagger by Renée Ahdieh. I totally recommend these books to anyone who loves a magical setting, romance and the beauty of becoming the perfect team.
What I love the most about Shazi is that she makes sense to me, we are truly birds of the same feather. Even if the whole world is against what she truly believes in, she won’t give up. Not ever. That determination is one of the the reasons the Calliph loves her and what makes them both the best of partners. If you ever find this with someone, fight for it!
