Description
"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 destinies become irrevocably tangled. One is a ruthless princess seeking to steal a throne. The other a powerful priestess desperate 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. I loved it." —Alix E. Harrow, author of The Ten Thousand Doors of January
"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. Simply magnificent." —Shelley Parker-Chan, author of She Who Became the Sun

"This cutthroat and sapphic novel will grip you until the very end."Vulture (Best of the Year)
"Lush and stunning....Inspired by Indian epics, this sapphic fantasy will rip your heart out."BuzzFeed News

      • content: Shiromi Arserio narrates an epic feminist fantasy. Princess Malini is in exile, with only Priya, a member of a secret religious group, as her servant. Together they seek to upend the cruel regime that oppresses them. Arserio does well with the wide range of emotions that Malini and Priya experience during their quest for freedom. However, the sheer number of characters in this audiobook is a challenge--there are just too many for Arserio to differentiate. As a result, the intricately crafted plot becomes deeply confusing. Those who persevere will be rewarded with a rich fantasy that transcends the narration. K.M.P. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine

        Starred review from April 1, 2021

        This LGBTQ YA-crossover epic fantasy features two strong women drawn together by difficult circumstances, in a fully detailed, India-inspired setting. Malini is imprisoned in the stark Hirana temple for defying her brother the emperor; Priya becomes Malini's maidservant and then her confidant. But Priya is hiding a secret of her own: she knows the mysteries of the Hirana because she lived there as a child and is still connected to its powerful magic. Meanwhile, more and more city residents are falling ill with a mysterious "rot," and treatments are proving ineffective. Could the Hirana's magic make a difference? VERDICT Suri (Realm of Ash) has created this world with great deliberation, including details about clothing, cuisine, and architecture. Malini and Priya both have depth and nuance, and their attraction to each other is written with care and sensitivity. Changing viewpoints help move the action along, but this is the first book in a trilogy, which inevitably means that some of the plotting will set the stage for books to come. Offer this to fans of Tanaz Bhathena or S. A. Chakraborty.--Laurel Bliss, San Diego State Univ. Lib.

        Starred review from May 15, 2021
        Priya grew up in the Hirana, a now-ruined temple, and narrowly escaped when the temple elders and most of her siblings burned to death at the order of the former Parijatdvipan emperor. Now, her country suffers from a mysterious plague that is blighting the fields and turning people into plants. Princess Malini of Parijatdvipa has been sent to die slowly in Ahiranya after refusing her zealot brother's demand that she immolate herself with her ladies in waiting. Priya wants to free the people of Ahiranya from the grasp of the empire, while Malini seeks to avenge the deaths of her friends and oust her brother from his imperial throne. Thrown together by circumstance, Priya and Malini find common ground and an inconvenient mutual attraction. The Hirana itself might provide answers if Priya can reawaken her magic and find the deathless waters at the root of her ancient faith. The Jasmine Throne features multiple points of view and strong supporting characters in a lavishly realized setting inspired by the history and epics of India. Tackling the subjects of imperialism, the roles of women, religion, morality, and family, this powerful series opener will undoubtedly reshape the landscape of epic fantasy for years to come.
