Kavithri : Outcast. Underdog. Survivor., Hardback Book

Kavithri : Outcast. Underdog. Survivor. Hardback

Part of the Ghosts of Ethuran series



An action-packed South Asian epic fantasy featuring necromancers, jinn, and one seriously fearless heroine... 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'An impressive debut in every sense - this grim and relentless exploration of colonialism, power, resistance and courage will leave readers shaken' Samit Basu'A journey that seamlessly packs South Asian lore and progression fantasy into a relentless rollercoaster' Gourav Mohanty'Majestic: a pacy, visceral tale . . . powered by a heroine with lashings of charm and grit in equal measure' David Wragg'A striking examination of class, caste, and colonialism by way of wondrously creative magic and an underdog you can't help but root for' J.T.
