NEW REVIEWS:

Historical Novel Review: “inexorable and completely satisfying love story that features history, philosophy and myth.  What’s more, I felt the author made the idea of an ancient force of nature falling in love with the young and innocent heroine believable, rather than creepy. Sensuous and intelligent, The Princess of Dhagabad is set within an alternative universe where gods, djinns and sorcerers do magical and philosophical battle. The Spirit of the Ancient Sands is  the first book in a trilogy by a talented new author.” Read the full review at this link.

Erin O’Riordan at Pagan Spirits: “Kashina’s writing is very sensual, very vivid, not only in sensory detail but also in emotional detail…This is a well-told fantasy tale with enough action and romance that fantasy-lovers will find it compelling.” Read the full review at this link.

The Princess of Dhagabad and The Goddess of Dance also received great reviews from Publishers Weekly, RT Book Reviews, Portland Book Review, ForeWord magazine, SF Crowsnest, Mythprint, and others.

THE GARDEN AT THE ROOF OF THE WORLD reviews and giveaways

Several wonderful reviews have been recently posted for W. B. J. Williams’s THE GARDEN AT THE ROOF OF THE WORLD:

Kelly Jensen at SFCrowsnest writes: “‘The Garden At The Roof Of The World’ is delightfully easy to read. The story has a fairy tale quality, but quickly disabuses the reader of any notion the happy ever after will be easily won. It is not a children’s book. The torments of the demons are very adult in nature. Many of the battles and trials are bloody. Not everyone survives…Recommended for fans of fairy tales and mythology and anyone who enjoys an epic quest with all the inherent twists and turns.” Follow this link for the full review.

Claire O’Beara at freshfiction.com says: “Fantasy fans will enjoy this mix of European and Sanskrit folk tales with rich invention and travel lore.” Follow this link for the full review.

Publishers Weekly writes: “This modern fantasy in the style of a medieval romance tackles themes of love and lust, faith, and the nature of the divine.” Follow this link for the full review.

Margaret McGaffey Fisk characterizes this book as “a thinking novel wrapped around a powerful story with characters you can love facing untold dangers and risking everything on their holy mission.” Follow this link for the full review.
