THE SPELLBINDING STORY OF AN EXTRAORDINARY WOMAN: RAZIA SULTAN—THE ONLY FEMALE SULTAN OF DELHI
It is the mid-thirteenth century and the ruler of Delhi, Razia Sultan has been taken captive by the rebel noble Ikhtiyaarudin Altunia. As the proud queen spends her time in captivity, she thinks back to her remarkable childhood as the daughter of Sultan Iltutmish, growing up and training with her brothers, and of her devoted companion Yakut. Most of all she thinks of her long and passionate love affair with the city she holds dearest than all else—Delhli.
This compulsively readable novel tells the tale of a time when palace intrigues were bigger than family ties and the lure of the throne superseded all relationships. A Dust Storm in Delhi gives us a heroine like no other, whose memory has persisted despite history’s attempts to forget her.
