Like many of us, author Tanaz Bhathena‘s life took a new direction in 2020. After releasing the YA love stories A Girl Like That in 2018 and The Beauty of the Moment in 2019, she pivoted to the fantasy genre.
The Wrath of Ambar is a two-part fantasy series that follows Gul — a magi on the run — and Cavas, a non-magi about to join the king’s army — and their romance as tensions in the kingdom build and a vengeance mission plays out.
Following the first book, Hunted By The Sky, Rising Like A Storm takes place after the king’s death. Read the synopsis below before the book is released on June 22:
Gul and Cavas must unite their magical forces — and hold onto their growing romance — to save their kingdom from tyranny.
With King Lohar dead and a usurper queen in power, Gul and Cavas face a new tyrannical government that is bent on killing them both. Their roles in King Lohar’s death have not gone unnoticed, and the new queen is out for blood. What she doesn’t know is that Gul and Cavas have a connection that runs deeper than romance, and together, they just might have the strength and magic to end her for good.
Then a grave mistake ends with Cavas taken prisoner by the government. Gul must train an army of warriors alone. With alliances shifting and the thirst for vengeance growing, the fate of Ambar seems ever more uncertain. It will take every ounce of strength, love, and sacrifice for Gul and Cavas to reach their final goal — and build a more just world than they’ve ever known.
