Product description

Review

"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

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

"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

"
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

"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

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

"Tasha Suri's
beautiful prose, with its undercurrent of warm tenderness, hides a web of escalating tension and existential dread. By the time the spider appears, Empire of Sand will have you in its grip and you won't be able to put it down."―Peter V. Brett

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

"
Genuine, painful, and beautiful. A very strong start for a new voice."―Kirkus (starred review)

"Complex,
affecting epic fantasy.... Intricate worldbuilding, heartrending emotional stakes... well-wrought prose."―Publishers Weekly (starred review) --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
