Empire Of Sand is an upcoming debut fantasy book that I am beyond excited to read!! I originally heard about this book when the author, Tasha Suri, announced her book deal on twitter & immediately put this book on my TBR.
As of April 10, Book Riot revealed the cover & I’d love to share it + talk about why I’m really looking forward to this book!
Here is the summary for Empire Of Sand:
A nobleman’s daughter with magic in her blood. An empire built on the dreams of enslaved gods.
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. Unbeknownst to her, she can manipulate the dreams of the gods to alter the face of the world.
When Mehr’s power comes to the attention of the Emperor’s most feared mystics, she is coerced into their service, as they are determined to harness her magic for the glory of the Empire. She must use every ounce of will, subtlety, and power she possesses to resist the mystics’ cruel agenda — and should she fail, the gods themselves may awaken seeking vengeance…
I actually have an upcoming SFF TBR list which not only lists this book, but also brings up that I really have been more interested in SFF books within the last year & am really hoping to talk about SFF books more on my blog!
So ever since I read the summary for Empire Of Sand, I knew this would be a highly anticipated book for me!
Not only does the plot sound so unique and just–fantastic, but I’m really intrigued to learn more about the magic system and our main character Mehr’s power/ability to manipulate the dreams of gods.
The magical and fascinating world that Suri has created sounds utterly captivating! It sounds like there’ll be tons of magic, mystery, and adventure with a brave and determined heroine & I am beyond excited to read Mehr’s story!! (´▽`ʃƪ)💕✨
I’m also intrigued to learn more about the mysterious Empire and the mystics that Mehr will face.
Now for the cover…
I absolutely love it!! (´▽`ʃƪ)♥♥
Everything from the colors to the font and the dagger in the center!
The progression from dark to bright red alongside the faded stars in the background brings a elegance and pop to the cover!
I also love the designs on the dagger, they also really brighten the cover with the stark contrast to the reds.
Overall I love the design and mystery this cover brings for the book! Its such a beautiful cover, I adore it!! 😭💕📚✨
Empire Of Sand is set to be released November 13, 2018!
