What? Another Daevabad themed post? Yup. It’s basically my brand now. Today I am going to be sharing book recommendations based on the characters in the Daevabad trilogy. So if you have a fave character you can find your next read that will be reminiscent of them!
Also lets just ignore the fact that several of the characters can’t read, maybe they listen to the audiobook instead.
Alizayd – Love From A To Z by S.K Ali
This soft nerd would love this halal romance and be a sobbing mess and Shannon actually said that Ali would love this book too.
Nahri – The Last Magician by Lisa Maxwell
Nahri would love Esta who not only was a thief but one who travelled through time to do it.
Darayavahoush – An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir
A brutal and ruthless world where Dara would relate to Helene a lot.
Muntadhir – Girl, Serpent, Thorn by Melissa Bashardoust
Muntadhir is someone who sometimes will do the wrong thing for the right reason and I feel he would enjoy this book.
Jamshid – We Set the Dark on Fire by Tehlor Kay Mejia
A forbidden romance where they fight an oppressive government sounds like something Jamshid would enjoy.
Zaynab – The Candle and the Flame by Nafiza Azad
A feminist fantasy with a Muslim MC and basically full of women who feel trapped in their roles and yet overcome this to become the leaders they are would definitely be something that Zaynab would definitely love.
Ghassan – Vicious by V.E Schwab
A book full of morally grey characters who think that what they are doing is right and justified. Sounds exactly like a Ghassan type book.
Subha – The Gilded Wolves by Roshani Chokshi
Subha would appreciate how they band together and how Laila looks out for the others especially Zofia.
Aqisa – The Tiger at Midnight by Swati Teerdhala
Aqisa would love Esha and what a badass fighter she is.
Lubayd – Yes, I’m Hot in This by Huda Fahmy
Look, Lubayd is all about having a good time and he would love reading all the hilarious books.
Manizheh – The Poppy War by R.F. Kuang
A book about the MC who slowly goes from wanting to be a good soldier to wanting power and going to any means to do it. Sounds like a book Manizheh would enjoy.
Kaveh – Renegades by Marissa Meyer
One of the MC joins the Renegades to destroy them…sound familiar kaveh?
Hatset – Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon
Powerful women getting stuff done. What more is there is to say.
Nisreen – Mirage by Somaiya Daud
A book with secrets and ulterior motives would definitely intrigue Nisreen who has her fair share of secrets.
Fiza – Chilling Effect by Valerie Valdes
A found family who go on space adventures sounds exactly like a book my pirate queen Fiza would love.
Khyzur – More To The Story by Hena Khan
Khyzur is powerful but doesn’t abuse his power and tries to do good with it. A book where the MC is a journalist and can use her power in that position to do good.
Sobek – Viper by Bex Hogan
A violent ruthless world set on the seas sounds right up his river.
So that’s all my book recommendations! I hope you find something you will love! And if you haven’t read the Daevabad trilogy then please do go read it!
