Summary

An action-packed South Asian epic fantasy featuring necromancers, jinn, and one seriously fearless heroine...

'It was not predictable in any sense and kept me so gripped I could not put it down' Reader review, ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐

Meet Kavithri. Outcast. Underdog. Survivor.

Kavi is a Taemu. Her people, once feared berserkers and the spearhead of a continent-spanning invasion, are the dregs of Raayan society. Their spirits crushed. Their swords broken. Their history erased.

But Kavi has a dream and a plan. She will do whatever it takes to earn a place at the secretive mage academy, face the Jinn within its walls, and gain the power to rise above her station and drag her people out of the darkness.

Except power and knowledge come at a cost, and the world no longer needs a Taemu who can fight. So they will break her. Beat her down to her knees. And make her bleed.

But if blood is what they want, Kavi will give them blood. She will give them violence. She will show them a berserker's fury.

And she will make them remember her name.

An action-packed and empowering South Asian fantasy epic that fans of Jade City will love. An underdog story like no other - Kavithri will remind you of fantasy heroes like Arya Stark, Gideon the Ninth and Kaladin Stormblessed.

'A richly detailed, darkly gritty world, and Kavi is such a compelling, sharp, and original heroine' Sunyi Dean, Sunday Times bestselling author of The Bone Eaters

'I appreciated the rich Indian inspired world that has accurate depiction of poverty, oppression, raw portraits of colonialism and caste system . . . a diverse, powerful and engaging reading experience' Reader review, ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐

'Kavithri is raw and relentless, an astonishing debut that I personally enjoyed so much because of the parallels and similarities of this world to my culture . . . If you like your action gritty and frenetic, and your world expansive and colorful . . . look no further' Reader review, ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐
