Summary of the Book:
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…
My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. This was somethig so amazing about this debut book. It is like the author took so much care to produce a living piece of art that came to live and kept changing along the way. The world and setting was a work of art. I felt like I was there. The characters were done almost equally as well. Mehr is a very interesting character. I enjoy the time inside of her head for it took away from the story. I know this is only the start of the journey for this series. It kind of lingers close to the surface.
My Rating of the Book: 4 1/2 Stars
