The Bladebone

Harper Voyager. (Khorasan Archives, Bk. 4). Oct. 2020. 512p. ISBN 9780062459251. pap. $17.99. FANTASY
The One-Eyed Preacher continues his reign of terror, conquering more of the land of Khorasan with his Talisman forces. Arian, her friend and fighting partner Sinnia, and the Council of Hira, along with their allies, are all that stand in his way. In order to protect the community of Hira and Ashfall, the capital of west Khorasan, Arian and her allies must find Bladebone, an ancient weapon, if they have any hope of defeating their enemy. Rich with mythology and detailed, descriptive language, Khan’s “Khorasan Archives” series concludes with this fourth epic feminist fantasy tale that seals the fate of many favorite characters. While the glossary and list of characters are helpful, readers new to the series should start with Book 1 (The Bloodprint), as the mythology is complex and the characters numerous.
VERDICT Recommended for fans of quality worldbuilding, and for libraries where Khan’s other books are popular.
