About Ana Lal Din & book The Descent of the Drowned

My name is Ana Lal Din. I’m the author of The Descent of the Drowned, a YA Fantasy set in a colonised Indo-Persian world and inspired by Pre-Islamic Arabian mythology. It is a harrowing tale centred around social justice and cultural issues such as sacred prostitution and caste system, and with essential themes that include power, identity, redemption, and what it takes to hold to one’s humanity in the face of devastation.
