Book Overview


In the lands of Candour, the Talisman threaten the authority of the Council with their growing indoctrination of the masses based on their rigid, oppressive interpretation of the Claim; a text orally transmitted from generation to generation, which they have appropriated in order to gain power. Tasked by the Council to fight this is Arian, aided by companion Sinnia and young boy Wafa, who must find the Bloodprint, legendary manuscript the Claim is based on, in order to stop the Talisman and re-establish the truth.

Reviews


“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

“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

Review of The Unquiet Dead:
“An outstanding debut.”
The New York Times

Review of Among the Ruins:
A lyrically written look into a country many think of as war-torn and bleak reveals many sides to the place and its people.
Kirkus
