Product description

Review

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

"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)

"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

"This is the future of fantasy rich, complex, unflinching. Empire of Sand is a stunning achievement."--Mark Oshiro

"The best fantasy novel I have read this year. I loved it!"--Miles Cameron

"A lovely dark dream full of wrenching choices and bittersweet triumph. This gorgeous, magic-woven story and its determined heroine spin hope from hopelessness, power from powerlessness, and love from desolation."--Melissa Caruso

"A powerful story of empire, magic, and resistance, told with an intimate poignancy and emotional resonance."--Rowenna Miller

"I was hooked from the moment I began Tasha Suri's gorgeous debut novel, Empire of Sand. Suri has created a rich world full of beautiful and powerful magic, utterly compelling characters, high stakes and immersive prose. I absolutely loved it!"--Kat Howard

"Riveting and wonderful! A fascinating desert world, a compelling heroine, and a richly satisfying conclusion. Empire of Sand will sweep you away!"--Sarah Beth Durst

"Empire of Sand is astounding. The desert setting captured my imagination, the magic bound me up, and the epic story set my heart free."--Fran Wilde

"A stunning and enthralling debut, Empire of Sand thoroughly swept me away. With wonderfully lyrical prose, Suri deftly balances fantastic world-building with a nuanced exploration of family ties and the lengths one will go for love. A quiet, powerful and unexpected love story set in a crushing world of magic and tyrants, Empire of Sand is a gripping tale of survival I'll be recommending for a long time!"--S. A. Chakraborty

"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

"An oasis of a story that you fall into, head-first. A mesmerizing tale full of magic and mystery."--Sayantani DasGupta

"A darkly intricate, devastating, and utterly original story about the ways we are bound by those we love."--R. F. Kuang
