Skyships, saber duels, and lots of royal intrigue...

First Daughter is the third book in the The Dharian Affairs Trilogy (Third Daughter, Second Daughter, First Daughter). This steampunk-goes-to-Bollywood (Bollypunk!) romance that takes place in an east-Indian-flavored alternate world filled with skyships, saber duels, and lots of royal intrigue. And, of course, kissing.

The Dharian Affairs is now optioned for virtual reality by Immersive Entertainment!

My thoughts about First Daughter ~~ 

Loved it! Loved it! Loved it! I loved the first two books in this series and was so excited to see where the story would go and how it would end. I was not disappointed and First Daughter is the perfect end to an exciting story.

We first meet Aniri in Third Daughter. She is the third daughter of the Queen, so she is rather far down the line as far as obligations to the country. Her two sisters are expected to take on the responsibilites of their people and the nation. Aniri is a free spirit of sorts but has more spunk, loyality, and bravery than either of her sisters. She knows what she wants for herself and knows what is best for her country. And she goes after it!

The reader can not help but just love Aniri from the very first book and she stays the main character throughout the whole series. We really learn so much about her and we get to watch her grow in her love for her country, her husband-to-be, and her family. But she is tough and holds her own when her country or those she loves are in danger.

This has been a fabulous series with drama, action, and love that kept me reading late into the night - just one more chapter! You know how that goes. I loved every bit of it. And lucky you if you have not started this series, you'll be able to devour it all at once! You can start reading Third Daughter and you will not be able to stop until you read the end of First Daughter. So wonderful!!

About the author

Susan Kaye Quinn grew up in California, where she wrote snippets of stories and passed them to her friends during class. Her teachers pretended not to notice and only confiscated her stories a couple times.

Susan left writing behind to pursue a bunch of engineering degrees, but she was drawn back to writing by an irresistible urge to share her stories with her niece, her kids, and all the wonderful friends she’s met along the way.

She doesn't have to sneak her notes anymore, which is too bad.

Susan writes from the Chicago suburbs with her three boys, two cats, and one husband. Which, it turns out, is exactly as a much as she can handle.
