Reviews

"A darkly intricate, devastating, and utterly original story about the ways we are bound by those we love."--R. F. Kuang on Empire of Sand
"A lush, atmospheric and sweeping epic fantasy, a powerful story of resistance and love in the face of terrifying darkness. You'll want to devour Empire of Sand."--Aliette de Bodard on Empire of Sand
"Genuine, painful, and beautiful. A very strong start for a new voice."--Kirkus (starred review) on Empire of Sand
"Complex, affecting epic fantasy.... Intricate worldbuilding, heartrending emotional stakes... well-wrought prose."--Publishers Weekly (starred review) on Empire of Sand
"The desert setting, complex characters, and epic mythology will captivate readers of Suri's debut fantasy."--Booklist (starred review) on Empire of Sand
"An ode to the quiet, fierce strength of women...pure wonder." --Samantha Shannon on Empire of Sand
"A stunning and enthralling debut that thoroughly swept me away....A quiet, powerful and unexpected love story set in a crushing world of magic and tyrants, Empire of Sand is a gripping tale."--S. A. Chakraborty on Empire of Sand
"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 on Empire of Sand
"A brilliant debut that shows us a rich, magical world with clear parallels to this one...absorbing, heart wrenching, and triumphant. Highly recommended."--Kevin Hearne on Empire of Sand
"A poignant story of finding one's place in a world warped by prejudice, court intrigue, violence, and sorcery....Those with a penchant for lyrical prose, intricate world building, beautifully imagined characters, compelling immersive folklore, and a fascinating look into a setting reminiscent of the Mughal Empire need look no further."--Booklist (starred review) on Realm of Ash
"Suri's companion to Empire of Sand continues to expand on the stark beauty and power of this magical realm. With striking characters and court intrigue, this story is dark, melodious, and memorable."--Library Journal (starred review) on Realm of Ash
"Sumptuous."--Publishers Weekly on Realm of Ash
"Sharp worldbuilding, authentic characters, and thoughtful explorations of prejudice and misogyny bode well for future volumes."--Kirkus (starred review) on Realm of Ash
"[A] feast of desert magic, palace intrigue, forbidden romance and veiled princesses making all their own hard choices. ... For all the imaginative scope and fresh worldbuilding, the heart of Suri's series beats in the chests of its indomitable heroines. Their every struggle and sacrifice, triumph and fear, resonate more deeply than the fates of whole worlds in less personal fantasies."--Shelf Awareness on Realm of Ash
