Woohoo! I’m slowly grinding towards a fall release of my latest series, The Dreaming Land. This will be another little (in this case, 3 volumes, so not actually so little) mini-series within the overall Zemnian Series set of books. I currently have very, VERY early (meaning they still have another round of proofreading etc. to go through) e-ARCs of Book 1. Anyone who wants a completely FREE copy can download one here. Of course, if you feel moved to leave a review, that would be greatly appreciated 🙂 The book has a Goodreads page up already, and reviews left there can just be copied and pasted into the book’s Amazon page when it’s released, which will hopefully be in September.
Here’s the cover:
And the blurb:
Valya is a warrior. It is her strong will that holds the steppe, the freest, wildest, most war-like of the provinces of Zem’, and it is her strong sword that defends it from raiders. But now, as a growing demand for Zemnian slaves threatens her people, a call from the Empress in Krasnograd requires Valya to leave her native land behind and take up her other duty, as unpopular heir to the Wooden Throne. In order to save her beloved Zem’ from the enemies without and within its borders, Valya must find out what secrets her sister princesses are keeping, face up to her scandal-ridden past, and woo the son of the woman she hates most in the world. Valya believes that all is fair in war, but in love she’s not so sure. With the fate of her family and her country riding on her shoulders, though, there may not be time for scruples.
A continuation of the story begun in the award-winning novels The Midnight Land and The Breathing Sea, The Dreaming Land I is the first installment of the concluding trilogy of this epic saga about the matrilineal world of Zem’, where trees walk, animals talk, and women rule. This subversive blend of high fantasy and literary fiction will appeal to fans of classical Russian literature and contemporary fantasy alike.
