StoryGraph Saturday: The Jasmine Throne

StoryGraph Saturday is a weekly thing where I randomly choose a book from my To Read pile on StoryGraph and show it off to both remind myself that it’s there and to show it to you, Dear Reader, in case you might find it interesting, too.


The Jasmine Throne (The Burning Kingdoms #1)
by Tasha Suri
Fantasy
Expected publication date: June 10, 2021 by Orbit

From The StoryGraph:

Tasha Suri’s The Jasmine Throne begins the powerful Burning Kingdoms trilogy, in which two women—a long-imprisoned princess and a maidservant in possession of forbidden magic—come together to rewrite the fate of an empire.

Exiled by her despotic brother when he claimed their father’s kingdom, Malini spends her days trapped in the Hirana: an ancient, cliffside temple that was once the source of the magical deathless waters, but is now little more than a decaying ruin.

A servant in the regent’s household, Priya makes the treacherous climb to the top of the Hirana every night to clean Malini’s chambers. She is happy to play the role of a drudge so long as it keeps anyone from discovering her ties to the temple and the dark secret of her past.

One is a vengeful princess seeking to steal a throne. The other is a powerful priestess seeking to save her family. Their destinies will become irrevocably tangled.

And together, they will set an empire ablaze.


I’ve heard some great buzz about The Jasmine Throne. Not so much that it’s been hyped beyond belief, but enough that I’m curious about it and want to give it a try. I enjoyed Suri’s previous book, Empire of Sand (though I didn’t read the follow up novel, Realm of Ash), so I imagine that this will one be a solid entry, too.

  1. Some book blurbs just don’t create any interest for me, but this one certainly does. If the book is as well written as the blurb it has a chance of being a great read. I haven’t tried this author yet, another in a long line of authors I’d love to read.

  2. I have a good feeling about The Jasmine Throne. I thoroughly enjoyed Empire of Sand, and I’m sure I’d enjoy her other book if I could just remember what it’s called and that it’s actually out…

  3. This description definitely hooks me. I love women who won’t just let themselves get stepped on. I haven’t read any of Tasha Suri’s books yet. But now I’ll keep an eye on her writing. Plus, not western! XD
