S A Chakraborty recommends
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."
For the Killing of Kings (2018)
(Ring-Sworn Trilogy, book 1)
Howard Andrew Jones
"A fantastic adventure! Wit and mystery abound in this fast-paced epic across a stunning new world."
Empire of Sand (2018)
(Books of Ambha, book 1)
Tasha Suri
"A stunning and enthralling debut, Empire of Sand thoroughly swept me away."
The Perfect Assassin (2019)
(Chronicles of Ghadid, book 1)
K A Doore
"With a mix of heart and adventure, and set in a wonderfully inventive new world, K.A. Doore's debut shines."
The Unspoken Name (2020)
(Serpent Gates, book 1)
A K Larkwood
"A fun, fresh new take on the traditional fantasy quest and an adventure I couldn't put down!"
