Product description

Review

"The Bloodprint...is nuanced in showing the value of history and religion and the damage willful ignorance can inflict. And if it's plot twists you're after [it] has plenty of them -- and an exciting cliffhanger, too."--Washington Post

"Khan's latest is a tale that will grip readers from the start. With beautiful, vibrant storytelling...Khan's first installment in her new fantasy series is truly remarkable."--RT Book Reviews

"For fans of complex fantasy series with a girl-power theme."--Booklist

"The Bloodprint is extraordinary. The book is wonderfully written; its poetic prose and mix of history, faith, and adventure reminiscent of a post-apocalyptic Odyssey...this time with a pair of women warriors at the helm."--S.A. Chakraborty, author of The City of Brass

"The Bloodprint is somewhere between N.K. Jemisin and George R.R. Martin. You're going to love it."--Saladin Ahmed, author of Throne of the Crescent Moon

From the Back Cover

A dark power called the Talisman, born of ignorance and persecution, has risen in the land. Led by a man known only as the One-Eyed Preacher, it is a cruel and terrifying movement bent on world domination--a superstitious patriarchy that suppresses knowledge and subjugates women. And it is growing.

But there are those who fight the Talisman's spread, including the Companions of Hira, a diverse group of influential women whose power derives from the Claim--the magic inherent in the words of a sacred scripture. Foremost among them is Arian and her fellow warrior, Sinnia, skilled fighters who are knowledgeable in the Claim. This daring pair have long stalked Talisman slave-chains, searching for clues and weapons to help them battle their enemy's oppressive ways. Now they may have discovered a miraculous symbol of hope that can destroy the One-Eyed Preacher and his fervid followers: the Bloodprint, a dangerous text the Talisman has tried to erase from the world.

Finding the Bloodprint promises to be their most dangerous undertaking yet, an arduous journey that will lead them deep into Talisman territory. Though they will be helped by allies--a loyal boy they freed from slavery and a man that used to be both Arian's confidant and sword master--Arian and Sinnia know that this mission may well be their last.
