Ardo and Yash interviewed the author behind their favourite mystery series featuring the swoony Esa Khattak and kickass Rachel Getty: Ausma Zehanat Khan! She’s also the author of The Khorasan Archives fantasy series which will have its final book, The Bladebone, released on October 6! It’s available for pre-order. They discussed the mystery series (obvs), what draws Ausma to the mystery and fantasy genres, how she’s spending her time in quarantine and the book she’d like to blurb.
