Seven top YA books for fans of "Game of Thrones"

Sona Charaipotra is a New York City-based writer and editor with more than a decade’s worth of experience in print and online media. For the B & N Teen Blog she tagged seven top YA books for fans of Game of Thrones, including:
The Wrath And The Dawn, by Renee Ahdieh

Drawing from the grandeur of a magical, Middle Eastern–flavored setting, this A Thousand And One Nights unspinning has it all—revolution and politics, a slow-simmering, impossible romance, and vengeance, of course, all unfolding in lush, lyrical language. Smart and resourceful Shazi, on a suicide mission to kill the Caliph of Khorasan—who’s married then murdered countless girls, including her best friend—discovers herself fighting to survive instead. And finding love with the enemy in the process? Confounding, yes. But delicious indeed.
