ABOUT THE BOOK:
July’s adult book comes from a POC author that we at Fox & Wit had the pleasure of featuring when her debut novel came out a couple years ago! This novel is inspired by pre-colonial India, and is set in an empire where a religious majority has decimated, oppressed, and conquered the people of a minority religion in a neighboring region. Years before the story begins, the emperor had ordered the slaughter and burning of the temple’s elders, women, and children. But a small number of the temple followers survived and have waged secret rebellions throughout the empire with riots and targeted assassinations.
One surviving member has chosen to hide and live a quiet life working as a maidservant in a nobleman’s employ, simply doing her best to survive and help the homeless children around her. Meanwhile, left to the guardianship of that same nobleman, the emperor’s sister has been banished from the capital city and ordered to live in isolation as punishment for defying the wishes of the emperor and his fanatical religious fervor. These two women come from very different worlds and have very different needs and goals. And yet they find something useful in each other, something they each believe they can turn to their own ends. When their fates become more and more entwined, they agree to work together against their common enemy: the emperor.
This story is filled with intricate detailed world building, and gorgeous lush prose that makes you imagine you can truly smell the incense and the flowers, feel the fire and hear the rush of water. The main characters and a good majority of the supporting characters are all fully-realized women with conflicting motives and desires, who are all smart, resourceful, and fascinating in their own ways. The story asks difficult questions about power, oppression, and obligation. And as a happy bonus, it is also gloriously sapphic!
