“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!
