Release: The Bloodprint by Ausma Zehanat Khan

A dark power known as the Talisman has risen in the land. Born of ignorance and persecution, it is led by a man known only as the One-Eyed Preacher. A superstitious patriarchy, cruel and terrifying, the Talisman suppresses knowledge and subjugates women. And it is growing.

But there are those who seek to stop the oppressive spread of the Talisman. A resistance believe they have discovered the key to destroying the Talisman and its fervid followers: The Bloodprint. Finding this dangerous manuscript that the Talisman has tried to erase from the world promises to be their most dangerous undertaking yet: a perilous journey deep into Talisman territory which may prove to be their last.

‘Sweeping its readers up for a fantastical journey across a broken yet beautiful Silk Road, 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

Claire's Review 5 of 5 Stars

Wow I loved this book!

This is the first book in the Khorasan Archives series and is the story of Arian and Sinnia, 2 strong female characters battling to free enslaved women captured by the Talisman.

This is a fantasy read, although very well researched with a high level of attention to detail with religion, politics and oppression, and a fascinating storyline, which keeps you reading and wanting to find out how the story will end. 

A very intriguing read and well executed, and I am looking forward to reading the future books in this series to see where the story goes.
