Empire of Sand is the first book in The Books of Ambha series. The book introduces us to the Amrithi. They are outcasts, descended from desert spirits that have been persecuted throughout their time for the power that lie in their blood. Mehr is the illegitimate daughter of an exiled Amritihi and imperial, but she doesn’t remember either of them. She only knows the magic and looks that she inherited from them. One day, Mehr’s power is noticed by the Emperor’s mystics and they have a cruel plan for her. She must use everything she has learned on her own as well as her power to resist them and keep herself safe.

The series continues in Realm of Ash. This book sees the Ambhan Empire crumbling as a terrible war is on the horizon. The only peace in this world is in the realm of ash where mortals can go into their ancestor’s dreams. It requires a steep price to make it there, but Arwa is determined to make the journal. Her husband has been killed and she’s pledged service to the royal family. She is joined on the journey by Zahir, a disgraced prince, who is desperate to save the ones he loves. Together they will see everything they’ve ever believed in called into question including the ultimate question: is the Empire even worth saving?
