About FOR SHE IS WRATH: Betrayed by her ex-lover and falsely accused of a crime she didn’t commit, Dania counts down the days for when she can exact her revenge—if only she didn’t have a life sentence to serve with no hope of release.

But when a fellow prisoner lands in the middle of her cell with a proposition and the keys to a Jinn treasure, Dania takes the chance to escape and pursue her path of vengeance.

Armed with all the power she could want and a brand-new identity, Dania enacts a plan to bring down those who betrayed her and her family. But the one person standing in her way is the very man who condemned her in the first place, and retribution becomes a complicated game of cat and mouse.

Because sometimes betrayal isn’t as simple as it seems and revenge certainly isn’t as easy—not when your heart is involved.
