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
