The Rage of Dragons (2017)
(Burning , book 1)

The Bloodprint (2017)
(Khorasan Archives, book 1)
Ausma Zehanat Khan
"Sweeping its readers up for a fantastical journey across a broken yet beautiful Silk Road, The Bloodprint is extraordinary. The book is wonderfully written; its poetic prose and mix of history, faith, and adventure reminiscent of a post-apocalyptic Odyssey… this time with a pair of women warriors at the helm."
