Overview

Protecting her identity means life or death in this immersive epic fantasy inspired by the Mughal Empire.  

In a different life, under a different name, Razia Khan was raised to be the Crown Prince of Nizam, the most powerful kingdom in Daryastan. Born with the soul of a woman, she ran away at a young age to escape her father&;s hatred and live life true to herself. 

Amongst the hijras of Bikampur, Razia finds sisterhood and discovers a new purpose in life. By day she&;s one of her dera&;s finest dancers, and by night its most profitable thief. But when her latest target leads her to cross paths with Arjun Agnivansha, Prince of Bikampur, it is she who has something stolen.  

An immediate connection with the prince changes Razia&;s life forever, and she finds herself embroiled in a dangerous political war. The stakes are greater than any heist she&;s ever performed. When the battle brings her face to face with her father, Razia has the chance to reclaim everything she lost&;and save her prince.

A trans girl who is a sought-after dancer in the desert city of Bikampur catches the attention of the dragon-riding prince, but must carefully guard her true identity as the former crown prince of the Sultanate of Nizam. Original.

"A charming dragon fantasy novel where a trans girl named Razia runs away from home, finds a community of trans women known as hijras, falls in love, and steals back her dragon. By night, Razia Khan is one of the most sought-after dancing girls in the desert city of Bikampur. Later in the night, she is its most elusive thief. When Razia finds herself dancing for the maharaja's son, the handsome prince Arjun, she knows that she's playing with fire. As a trans girl, known as a hijra, she can never be a wife to any man, and as the former crown prince of the Sultanate of Nizam, she guards her identity carefully, lest her father's assassins find her. But in the dragon-riding prince of Bikampur, Razia sees not just a ticket out of the gutter, but a kindred spirit. As their romance blossoms, Razia finds herself once more thrust into the dangerous world of politics in Daryastan, and in order to survive, she will need the skills of a courtesan, a thief, and a warrior princess"--
