Tasha Suri was inspired to write Empire of Sand based on her love of Mughal-Indian history. This is her debut novel, and you’d never know it by how beautifully she builds this world and describes the customs and traditions of the Amrithi people. Suri delicately handles the relationship between Mehr and her quiet partner Amun, who has been imprisoned by the Empire since childhood.

A must-read for Fantasy fans, especially if you’ve enjoyed novels by Jacqueline Carey or Naomi Novik. This is the first in a series – and it is indeed a promising beginning.
