It has been over a year since the publication of Anna Kashina’s romantic Arabian-style fantasy THE PRINCESS OF DHAGABAD, but we are still getting great reviews for this book, especially in the wake of its sequel THE GODDESS OF DANCE receiving a silver medal at ForeWord Book of the Year Awards. Here are some great review quotations for THE PRINCESS OF DHAGABAD:
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.
