About the Author
Tasha Suri was born in London to Punjabi parents. She studied English and creative writing at Warwick University and is now a cat-owning librarian in London. A love of period Bollywood films, history, and mythology led her to write South Asian-influenced fantasy.
"Tasha Suri writes the female characters I didn't realize I was aching to see in fantasy, to devastating effect. The Jasmine Throne is a fiercely and unapologetically feminist tale of endurance and revolution set against a gorgeous, unique magical world."
--S. A. Chakraborty, author of The City of Brass, on The Jasmine Throne
"Like the magic in this tale of reclaiming power, The Jasmine Throne will work its way under your skin with Suri's compelling characters and gorgeous, effortless prose."--Sam Hawke, author of City of Lies, on The Jasmine Throne
"Lush and stunning... Inspired by Indian epics, this sapphic fantasy will rip your heart out."--BuzzFeed News on The Jasmine Throne
"Suri's incandescent feminist masterpiece hits like a steel fist inside a velvet glove. Blisteringly furious and astonishingly tender by turns, its women take on the patriarchal empire with every weapon at their disposal. Simply magnificent."--Shelley Parker-Chan, author of She Who Became the Sun, on The Jasmine Throne
"The Jasmine Throne pulls you under, sweeping you away on a current of gorgeous prose and intricately imagined magic and politics. Filled with sharply-drawn characters who ache with longing: for peace, for war, for one another. It left me breathless."--Andrea Stewart, author of The Bone Shard Daughter, on The Jasmine Throne
"The Jasmine Throne raises the bar for what epic fantasy should be. Tasha Suri has created a beautiful, ferocious world alongside an intimate study of the characters who will burn it all down."--Chloe Gong, author of These Violent Delights, on The Jasmine Throne
"A masterpiece. Suri continues to storm the realm of epic fantasy. The Jasmine Throne is the powerful, female-centric series I've hungered for--with deftly-woven prose and a pair of glorious women destined to wreck your heart."--Heather Walter, author of Malice, on The Jasmine Throne
"Suri laid the groundwork of this artful, immensely detailed world in book one, and now allows it to explode with politics, magic, and theology. The heroines are fierce and tender as ever, both brimming with a quiet, molten rage stemming from a thirst for vengeance, righteousness, and love....[A] taut, emotional sequel that will leave series fans eager for the finale."--Publishers Weekly (starred review) on The Oleander Sword
"This complex, sprawling story is filled with lush worldbuilding, politics versus personal feelings, and familial love and betrayal...An epic tale of love: for family, for power, for country."--Library Journal (starred review) on The Oleander Sword
