Under This Forgetful Sky (2023)
Lauren Yero
"Under This Forgetful Sky is an exquisitely crafted debut set in a smartly realized world. Rumi and Paz are characters to cheer for, and their page-turning story is both a heart-rending romance and a nuanced exploration of inequity. Highly recommended."

(Numair Chronicles, book 1)
