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 captivating, Mughal India-inspired debut fantasy. The Amrithi are outcasts; nomads descended of desert spirits, they are coveted and persecuted throughout the 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. Should she fail, the gods themselves may awaken seeking vengeance... Empire of Sand is a lush, dazzling fantasy novel perfect for readers of City of Brass and The Wrath & the Dawn.

I. Loved. This. Fabulous, rich setting and a heroine to root for. This isn't a story about going off to become a fighter, but it is one about tapping into deep resilience and not losing sight of who you are--and what you value--in the face of oppression. Add in a dash of romance, and it's just a wonderful story.

A thrilling and powerful South-Asian-inspired fantasy novel about a young woman with hidden magic in her blood. Rich world, fully-developed characters with action and a bit of romance - this works as a standalone, but left me wanting more from this world. A 2018 standout.
