“RAISES THE BAR FOR WHAT EPIC FANTASY SHOULD BE.” –Chloe Gong, author of These Violent Delights
 
A ruthless princess and a powerful priestess come together to rewrite the fate of an empire in this “fiercely and unapologetically feminist tale of endurance and revolution set against a gorgeous, unique magical world” (S. A. Chakraborty).
 
Exiled by her despotic brother, princess Malini spends her days dreaming of vengeance while imprisoned in the Hirana: an ancient cliffside temple that was once the revered source of the magical deathless waters but is now little more than a decaying ruin.
 
The secrets of the Hirana call to Priya. But in order to keep the truth of her past safely hidden, she works as a servant in the loathed regent’s household, biting her tongue and cleaning Malini’s chambers.
 
But when Malini witnesses Priya’s true nature, their destines become irrevocably tangled. One is a ruthless princess seeking to steal a throne. The other a powerful priestess seeking to save her family. Together, they will set an empire ablaze.
 
“An intimate, complex, magical study of empire and the people caught in its bloody teeth. It’s about resistance and power, histories both personal and political, and the heroes who must become monsters to survive. I loved it.” –Alix E. Harrow, author of The Ten Thousand Doors of January
 
“Suri’s writing always brings me to another world; one full of wonders and terrors, where every detail feels intricately and carefully imagined. The Jasmine Throne is gripping and harrowing from the very start.” –R. F. Kuang, author of The Poppy War
 
“Suri’s incandescent feminist masterpiece hits like a steel fist inside a velvet glove. Blisteringly furious and astonishingly tender by turns, its women take on the patriarchal empire with every weapon at their disposal. Their combined force will leave you as stunned and gasping as those who would deny them. Simply magnificent.” –Shelley Parker-Chan, author of She Who Became the Sun
 
“Truly, The Jasmine Throne is one of the best fantasies you’ll read this summer – so do yourself a favor and just add to your TBR right now.” –Culturess
 
“A fierce, heart-wrenching exploration of the value and danger of love in a world of politics and power.” — Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Biographical Note:
Tasha Suri was born in London to Punjabi parents. She studied English and Creative Writing at Warwick University, and is now a cat-owning librarian in London. A love of period Bollywood films, history, and mythology led her to write South Asian-influenced fantasy.

Paperback. 576 pages.
