We want to send you a copy of Upon a Burning Throne, available April 16th from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt! The first book in Ashok K. Banker’s groundbreaking epic fantasy series the Burnt Empire Saga is inspired by the ancient Indian classic, The Mahabharata.

When this girl, whose father is the powerful demonlord Jarsun, is denied her claim by the interim leaders, Jarsun declares war, vowing to tear the Burnt Empire apart—leaving the young princes Adri and Shvate to rule a shattered realm embroiled in rebellion and chaos…
