Tasha Suri, author of EMPIRE OF SANDThere was and there was not, as all
stories begin, a princess cursed to be poisonous to the touch. But for
Soraya, who has lived her life hidden away, apart from her family, safe
only in her gardens, it's not just a story.As the day of her twin brother's
wedding approaches, Soraya must decide if she's willing to step outside of
the shadows for the first time. Below in the dungeon is a demon who holds
knowledge that she craves, the answer to her freedom. And above is a young
man who isn't afraid of her, whose eyes linger not with fear, but with an
understanding of who she is beneath the poison.Soraya thought she knew her
place in the world, but when her choices lead to consequences she never
imagined, she begins to question who she is and who she is becoming . . .
human or demon. Princess or monster.
