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.
Empire of Sand is my December audiobook spotlight pick! I haven’t started it yet but I’m eager to! If you haven’t noticed already fantasy is my other love! I especially love books that take place in cultures different from mine! To me, it makes the book so much more interesting because you are not only reading a great book but also reading a book with customs completely new to you. Well, for me, I will be listening to this book. But all that from above still applies. 😊.
I don’t drive as much as I used to so this book may take me a loooong time to get through but I’m all for the commitment. It just sounds so fantastic- I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to mention it! I was literally just talking about how I will go insane if I read (listen to) one more medieval Nordic inspired book, so, you can imagine how completely ready I am to start listening to this one!
As always, I have to say thanks to Libro.fm because they are my people and it is because of them I even get to listen to this book! Support your indie bookstore- support your indie audiobook store! Only good things can come from doing both! Now if I could only figure out how to get my pictures to have the cool little earbuds wrapped around the book cover like Libro.fm does… 🤔… I should have taken more computer classes while in school…
P.S. I have an entire post dedicated to how much I love Libro.fm. Just type “Libro.fm Love” into the search bar and it will pop up!
