THE PRINCESS OF DHAGABAD reviewed by Portland Book Review

Happy New Year, everyone, and great wishes to you in 2013!

Over the holidays, a great review of Anna Kashina’s THE PRINCESS OF DHAGABAD has been posted by Portland Book Review.

9780983832003-Perfect:Layout 1.qxd

“The Princess of Dhagabad is a beautifully written novel by author Anna Kashina. She creates a world of the Middle East that is sensual, subtle and vibrant. The characters of the Princess and Hasan are layered and subtle – both show an innate curiosity about the world but with realism that their wants are overridden by political and cultural requirements. The larger cultural setting has a significant place in the story and can be considered a character of its own in the book. This novel is a delight to read and Ms. Kashina is a truly gifted storyteller.” Reviewed By Barbara Cothern

THE GODDESS OF DANCE reviewed by Midwest Book Review

Reviewer Susan Bethany writes:

The art of dance has long thought to be something greater. “The Goddess of Dance” is the second novel in Anna Kashina’s The Spirits of the Ancient Sands Historical fantasy series, following Princess Gul’Agdar as she studies the magic that lies beneath the dance, pursuing it with passion as the world around her places on her the pressures of the day of marriage as a bargaining chip. With ancient mysticism and intrigue all throughout, “The Goddess of Dance” is a read that should prove hard to put down.

Read it in the upcoming July issue of the Midwest Book Review and on their web site at http://www.midwestbookreview.com.
