About the Author
"Set in a dark and dangerous world...well-written and dramatically told, teens will find much to love in a novel in which the princess grows to become a force to be reckoned with." -- School Library Journal (starred review)

"Immersive and captivating...[will] draw in fans of fantasy and slow-burn romance." -- Kirkus Reviews

"A quietly profound and beautiful fairytale retelling that I'll be recommending for years." -- S. A. Chakraborty, author of City of Brass
"Lush and vividly imagined, THORN takes a folktale we think we know and turns it into something new: a story of and for our time, with lessons that will remain with readers long after they have finished the last, glorious pages."
-- G. Willow Wilson, author of The Bird King
"Khanani's Thorn explores themes of resilience, responsibility, and identity in a darkly captivating retelling that is more than the sum of its parts. This is the kind of book that digs under your skin and makes a home, demanding reflection and frequent re-reads."
-- Tracy Banghart, author of Grace and Fury
"A vivid retelling of a classic tale, full of love, justice, and empathy." -- Emily B Martin, author of the Creatures of Light series
"This Middle Eastern-inspired retelling of "The Goose Girl" has much that will entice fantasy readers. A measured romance and an awareness of contemporary social issues elevate the text, but most alluring of all is Alyrra's strong, sensible heart." -- Booklist
