Product description

Review

"Opens up a rich new world...Mehr's underdog story will feel familiar, but her unique powers and Suri's creative world-building heighten the stakes."--Raisa Bruner, TIME¿s 100 Best Fantasy Books of All Time

"Genuine, painful, and beautiful. A very strong start for a new voice."--Kirkus (starred review)

"The desert setting, complex characters, and epic mythology will captivate readers of Suri's debut fantasy."--Booklist (starred review)

"Empire of Sand draws you into an intricately realized world of blood and secrets. An arresting and magical history told through the eyes of an indomitable heroine.I cannot ask for more."--Jeannette Ng

"Complex, affecting epic fantasy.... Intricate worldbuilding, heartrending emotional stakes... well-wrought prose."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Impressive, exciting.... Beautiful and evocative."--Fantasy Book Critic

"Tasha Suri's beautiful prose, with its undercurrent of warm tenderness, hides a web of escalating tension and existential dread. By the time the spider appears, Empire of Sand will have you in its grip and you won't be able to put it down."--Peter V. Brett

"A lush, atmospheric and sweeping epic fantasy, a powerful story of resistance and love in the face of terrifying darkness. You'll want to devour Empire of Sand."--Aliette de Bodard

"A study of elegance, eloquence and a unique example of how words can be used with restraint and care to create something wonderful.... The start of an incredible journey."--Geek Syndicate

"A brilliant debut that shows us a rich, magical world with clear parallels to this one: it has a sadistic leader with a cult-like following who warps the world for personal gain, a few individuals with the strength to resist him, and a planet seeking balance. But its core is a heroine defined by her choices, and her journey is absorbing, heart wrenching, and triumphant. Highly recommended."--Kevin Hearne

About the Author

Tasha Suri was born in London to Punjabi parents. She studied English and Creative Writing at Warwick University, and is now a cat-owning librarian in London. A love of period Bollywood films, history, and mythology led her to write South Asian-influenced fantasy.
