2018 was an amazing year for POC women authors with so many fantastic books coming out. Tasha Suri’s Empire Of Sand is no exception. I’ve been following people on Twitter who follow Tasha, and have been watching the hype for Empire Of Sand build. It was because of that hype that I decided to order the book, and am so glad that I did.
Mehr is the illegitimate daughter of an imperial governor, daughter of an Amrithi woman. The Amrithi are desert people, nomads descended from the daiva, who hold magic in their blood.
Raised as a noblewoman, Mehr is unprepared when her power comes to the attention of the Maha and his mystics. She will need to use every ounce of wit and will she possesses to escape the cruel clutches of a madman.
This is a beautifully written story of inner strength, faith and, above all, hope. I was completely enchanted and swept away with the story as Tasha wove her magic with words. It is a wonderful story set in a world rich in magic and myth. A must-read for all fantasy fans.
