The River of Silver—now available in print and eBook

From the Locus and World Fantasy-nominated author of the acclaimed Daevabad Trilogy – The City of Brass, The Kingdom of Copper, and The Empire of Gold—S. A. Chakraborty, comes The River of Silver.

The series follows a ” young con artist named Nahri in eighteenth-century Cairo who discovers she’s the last descendant of a powerful family of healers.” After receiving high acclaim, Chakraborty expands her series with the release of a compilation of stories set before, during, and after the events of the first three books, “told from the perspective of characters both beloved and hated. These stories gather material both seen and new—including a special coda that fans will need to read—making this the perfect complement to those incredible novels.”

Originally published as an audio-first book earlier this year, THE RIVER OF SILVER will now finally be available in print and eBook.
