“Mistress of the Solsice” has received high praise from many venues, including Publishers Weekly and ForeWord Reviews, which characterized her book as “a superior fantasy novel with a strong flavor of romance and myth”. This dark romantic fantasy based on Russian folklore is centered about the gruesome Solstice rites that were practiced in Russia before Christianity and brings to life many creatures of the Slavic myths.

This year, Anna is celebrating the release of two installments in her action-packed Majat Code series from Angry Robot Books, UK. Book 1, “Blades of the Old Empire” came out in February, and book 2, “The Guild of Assassins” will come out in August.

Congratulations to Anna!

BLADES OF THE OLD EMPIRE by Anna Kashina: cover reveal

To celebrate Anna Kashina’s upcoming “Majat Code” series, we are cross-posting her thoughts on the recent cover reveal event of book I in the series, “Blades of the Old Empire”, an epic fantasy upcoming on February 25, 2014 from Angry Robot Books.


Here is what Anna says about this event:


It is a very special moment for an author to see the cover of her own book. The thrill of it is hard to describe–especially if everything is done right.

My publisher has been wonderful about involving me in the process of cover creation. They asked for ideas and detailed descriptions, then showed me several versions until we all found one we were happy with. In many ways, when my cover was finalized I knew what to expect. But I still had this “wow” moment when I finally saw it finished and fully designed: my  character, Kara, coming to life, walking toward me with a no-nonsense look and an array of weapons at the ready.

While I like the covers of my other books, this one immediately stood out for me in how much movement it has, how much action it promises. “Blades of the Old Empire” is different from my other books in exactly these aspects: movement and action. It is much more fast-paced. And of course, it features the deadly Majat Warriors, who take swordplay and weaponry to the level of an art form.

I can’t wait to hold the book with this cover when it comes out in the US on February 25, 2014!
