A love story between a young, inexperienced girl and a powerful man is a theme that rarely fails in fiction and literature. For fairy tale fans, Anna Kashina has transformed this theme into an Arabian setting, a beautifully crafted love story between a young princess and her slave, an immortal and powerful djinn.
THE PRINCESS OF DHAGABAD and THE GODDESS OF DANCE by Anna Kashina, the two stand-alone novels in her Spirits of the Ancient Sands series, bring together power and innocence, youth and wisdom, pain and revelation in a lush, intricately portrayed historical Arabian setting.
