Deep in the desert, under the blazing sun, an elite troupe of dancers are trained to harness their magic. They are the queen’s most formidable assassins. A special pre-publication event with an exciting new name in YA fantasy fiction, Zulekhá A. Afzal as she launches her stunning debut, Dancers of the Dawn. She talks to Joanna Nadin.

Zulekhá A. Afzal grew up in Cornwall, where the dramatic coastline inspired stories of other worlds and magic. She now lives in Bath where she studied English Literature with Creative Writing and completed the MA in Writing for Young People at Bath Spa University. When she isn’t writing fantasy fiction or working as an assistant editor, you can find Zulekhá in a ballet class. Dancers of the Dawn is her first novel, and she is currently working on the second book in the series.
