ARC Review: The Jasmine Throne by Tasha Suri

The Jasmine Throne (Burning Kingdoms, #1)

Rating: 1 out of 5.

I was so excited for this book – morally gray sapphic women! But I had to stop.


The early chapters of this book feature very heavily a disease called “the Rot” that is basically… plants growing out of people’s skin. This is a major trypophobia trigger for me which makes me physically ill and I wanted to warn anyone else who might want to steer clear. I couldn’t find any mention of it in the reviews nor any trigger warnings for the book.

I don’t know if it will continue but my hunch is that it will, since there is so much focus on how mysterious this disease is at the beginning.

I will say that the writing was beautiful and the characters already interesting and if I was able to continue I would.

*Thanks to NetGalley and Orbit books for providing an e-arc for review.
