The Jasmine Throne is the first volume of what promises to be a wonderful, sweeping, epic fantasy series set in an Indian-inspired world and featuring two powerful and unforgettable heroines. Malini is the emperor’s sister, imprisoned for disloyalty and marked for a terrible fate. Priya is, apparently, only a servant girl, but in fact she is much more. When these two women cross paths and join forces — and fall in love — sparks fly, and an empire might just fall.
I found this a beautiful, engaging fantasy novel that left me eager for the next volume in the series.
