    97. A Tempest of Tea by Hafsah Faizal

    It’s our final episode (!), and we’re discussing A Tempest of Tea, the much anticipated new novel by Hafsah Faizal. We meet Arthie Casimir and her crew who run a tea-house-turned-blood-house called Spindrift in the city of White Roaring. When Spindrift is threatened, Arthie is forced to make alliances and pull off a dangerous heist. There are vampires, colonial shenanigans, forgeries, and intrigue galore. The book ends on a serious cliffhanger, and we don’t know when to expect the next installment. Links for ways to keep in touch included below 🙂 Recommend if you like… Hafsah’s other duology The Sands of Arawiya (We Hunt the Flame episode 32 and We Free the Stars episode 54)…

We had a great time reading this one, and we will read anything Hafsah writes in the future (really looking forward to her new upcoming book, Tempest of Tea). Stay magical, friends!
