"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"The Bloodprint...is nuanced in showing the value of history and religion and the damage willful ignorance can inflict. And if it's plot twists you're after [it] has plenty of them -- and an exciting cliffhanger, too." -- Washington Post"Khan's latest is a tale that will grip readers from the start. With beautiful, vibrant storytelling...Khan's first installment in her new fantasy series is truly remarkable." -- RT Book Reviews"For fans of complex fantasy series with a girl-power theme." -- Booklist"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
