I genuinely wouldn't know what to do if I had this book, I would probably just sit there and stare at it because it's so pretty my eyes are permanantly heart-shaped!!!!

plus, this is an Asian inspired feminist fantasy set along the Silk Road with a kickass heroine and I don't see how it can get better than that.

I was honored to have been trusted with the early draft/manuscript and I couldn't put it down. Strong female protagonist and elements close to my culture had my attention from the very first few paragraphs. Congratulations Nafiza!!
