Silver Medalist, Independent Publishers Book Award (Fantasy)

“Mixing the best elements of folklore…with modern fantasy” — Publishers Weekly

“A superior fantasy novel with a strong flavor of romance and myth.” — ForeWord Reviews

THE DARK ESSENCE OF RUSSIAN MYTH

As the head priestess of the ancient Solstice cult, Marya must sacrifice a virgin every year. She copes with this gruesome duty by assuming a mask of cold detachment, as her father—the evil tzar Kashchey—devours the maidens’ souls to maintain his youth and power. It is his power alone that keeps Marya’s kingdom safe from all enemies—or so she was raised to believe.

When Ivan arrives on a quest to stop the virgin sacrifices, Marya throws all her magic against him. To maintain her life—and that of her father—she must destroy Ivan before he completes his quest. But can she find it in her heart to do so?

Baba Yaga, Leshy, Vodyanoi, and the ancient animal deities come alive in this beautifully crafted romantic story that will take you into the authentic world of Russian fairy tales—with a dark, sensual twist.

Partial results were announced last night, and we were all thrilled to find Anna Kashina’s “Mistress of the Solstice” among the winners. For the current list of winners see: http://www.independentpublisher.com/article.php?page=1791&urltitle=2014%20Independent%20Publisher%20Book%20Awards%20Results

“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!
