Publisher Description

*Named one of TIME's Top 100 Fantasy Books Of All Time

A nobleman's daughter with magic in her blood. An empire built on the dreams of enslaved gods. Empire of Sand is Tasha Suri's lush, dazzling, Mughal India-inspired debut fantasy.


The Amrithi are outcasts; nomads descended of desert spirits, they are coveted and persecuted throughout the Ambhan Empire for the power in their blood.

Mehr is the illegitimate daughter of an imperial governor and an exiled Amrithi mother she can barely remember, but whose face and magic she has inherited. When Mehr's power comes to the attention of the Emperor's most feared mystics, she must use every ounce of will, subtlety, and power she possesses to resist their cruel agenda.

And should she fail, the gods themselves may awaken seeking vengeance. . .

Stick with it

Okay, I have a hard time criticizing any artist because I know how much work goes into the process but there’s some good and bad here. It takes about half the book before anything actually happens, and at times the writing is a bit long winded, which can make you get impatient as a reader…That’s said, once it finally got moving I couldn’t put it down and finished the second half of the book in one sitting. I think it’s worth the read and will definitely read the second.

Slows paced but…exquisitely written!

I must say that this was my fist time reading something so different than what my normal SciFi taste is. The magic was confusing at first, but the more I read the more it made since and I was hoping for our heroine to succeed. It was slowed, but I admire a writer whose research is imbedded in the story lines. I appreciate the well and thorough character development that went in. I loved the growth we see with the heroine with out being cheesy or immature. And the dialogue was well written. I cried and was relieved when I finished the story. The pain and hopeless felt raw and real. I love that about this author. It truly pulled me in.

I hope you all can give the book a chance. Is more about Hope, with love being the reward!!
