‘The Bloodprint is somewhere between N.K. Jemisin and George R.R. Martin. You’re going to love it’
Saladin Ahmed, author of Throne of the Crescent Moon
‘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’
S.A. Chakraborty, author of The City of Brass
‘one of the year’s finest fantasy debuts’
