South Asian-inspired epic fantasy written in the lines of classics like The Name of the Wind and Lord of the Rings? Gimme.

P.S: The way I literally chose to ignore this book until "South Asian" says a lot about me. 😭

“I was born on the full moon under an auspicious constellation, the holiest of positions—much good it did me.”
Vaishnavi Patel, Kaikeyi

Roshani Chokshi
“Go with my blessings, Pandavas,” said the god of fire. “But before you do, let me offer one last piece of wisdom. There is more than one kind of darkness, and none is darker than doubt, for the light required to illuminate it belongs not to a jewel or a flame, but your very soul.”
Roshani Chokshi, Aru Shah and the Nectar of Immortality

Roshani Chokshi
“It was lovely and exhilarating, like holding your breath underwater and opening your eyes, knowing you wouldn’t be able to see this forever.”
Roshani Chokshi, Aru Shah and the Nectar of Immortality

Vaishnavi Patel
“You did the right thing," Manthara told me.
"No matter what is said about you, Kaikeyi, remember that you did the right thing. You are not wicked."
"Then why do I feel wicked?" I whispered.
"Because those who are good question themselves. Because those who are good always wonder if there was a better way, a way that could have helped more and hurt less. That feeling is why you are good." She too pressed a kiss to my forehead.
"This will be terrible, but you are so strong. You can make it through.”
Vaishnavi Patel, Kaikeyi

Fonda Lee
“I couldn’t be Pillar without you, and I still can’t. We’ve both hurt each other because we were too stubborn about what we expected, and we paid badly for that. But what’s the point of life if we give up on the people we love?” He enfolded her into his arms and stroked her smooth hair. He kissed her on the forehead and cheeks and mouth. “Wen, will you be my Pillarman?”
Fonda Lee, Jade Legacy
