No one is entirely certain what brings the Emperor Sikander to Shalingar. Until now, the idyllic kingdom has been immune to his many violent conquests. To keep the visit friendly, Princess Amrita has offered herself as his bride, sacrificing everything - family, her childhood love, and her freedom - to save her people. But her offer isn't enough.

The palace is soon under siege, and Amrita finds herself a fugitive, utterly alone but for an oracle named Thala, who was kept by Sikander as a slave and managed to escape amid the chaos. With nothing and no one else to turn to, Amrita and Thala are forced to rely on one another. But while Amrita feels responsible for her kingdom and sets out to warn her people, the newly free Thala has no such ties. She encourages Amrita to go on a quest to find the fabled Library of All Things, where it is possible for each of them to reverse their fates. To go back to before Sikander took everything from them.

Stripped of all that she loves, caught between her rosy past and an unknown future, will Amrita be able to restore what was lost, or does another life - and another love - await?

Praise for The Library of Fates Khorana creates a beautiful and fantastical version of our world where gods and spirits walk among mortals. The fables repeated throughout foretell Amrita's journey, seamlessly interweaving her past and future and mirroring a thought-provoking narrative that touches on weighty philosophical questions. --Publishers Weekly [R]ich, beautiful worldbuilding and thought-provoking questions on the power of experience, stories, and fate... --Kirkus Reviews Khorana has created a lush, magical world inspired by Indian mythology. ... [A] wholly compelling story. --Booklist Engrossing. --School Library Connection An incredible coming-of-age fantasy. --BitchMedia Khorana's dazzling second book features a sweeping quest, sumptuous romance and complex heroines. This is the kind of book that lingers in your dreams. --Roshani Chokshi, New York Times bestselling author of The Star-Touched Queen The Library of Fates transported me to a magical kingdom where troubled oracles, irreverent goddesses, and megalomaniacal kings battle for control of love and fate. With a rich, real mythology and a stunning twist, it's basically everything I ever wanted in a book. --Heidi Heilig, author of The Girl from Everywhere I was swept away by this unique, tantalizing tale. The Library of Fates spins a spell that breaks the heart and utterly enchants. An essential addition to any library--magical or not. --Jessica Khoury, author of the Corpus Trilogy and The Forbidden Wish
