The Spirits of the Ancient Sands Book II: The Goddess of Dance

“Evocative” — Publishers Weekly

“A rich treasure trove of imagery, color, romance, intrigue, and mystery.” — ForeWord Featured Review

“With ancient mysticism and intrigue all throughout, “The Goddess of Dance” is a read that should prove hard to put down.”Midwest Book Review


When Princess Gul’Agdar of Dhagabad begins studying the ancient magic of the Sacred Dance, she has no idea that this seemingly innocent act is the first step on the treacherous path to immortality, absolute power—and slavery. And her father, the sultan, is intent on forcing her into an arranged marriage, not knowing that leaving the palace would expose her to the very danger she must flee.

Follow the princess and her beloved djinn, Hasan, into the magic of the Egyptian and Arabian deserts; peek into the powerful, all-female cult of the Great Goddess; and learn about the wonders of the True Library beyond this world—if you dare. . . .


Release date: September 30, 2012

    I’ve loved book one and two of your The Spirits of the Ancient Sands trilogy. And seeing that you’re writing a new series now, I have to ask, can you give a tentative date as to when you will complete the trilogy?

  2. Daniel says:

    What Andy said. I am also keen to read the conclusion of the series.

    Hello Dear Anna Kashina,
    I just started reading your trilogy and have the second of the three coming in the mail soon. I am really looking forward to reading the third! Amazing storytelling, I find myself completely immersed in “The Princess of Dhagabad”. Do you have a hint for us readers of when the final book will be released?

    Much love to you and your writings!

      Dear Kristine,
      I am so glad you are enjoying my book. I am still working on book 3, so while I can promise you it will definitely be released, I am not sure when. I am tentatively aiming for next year. I will post my progress as things become clearer about my publication plans. I hope you like books 1 and 2, and thank you so much for stopping by!

    Thank you so much for getting back to me so soon. I am really looking forward to Book ii coming in the mail. Any day now! I’m also waiting with anticipation for the third book. The first was so delightful I have to reread it before beginning the second. The ending was beautiful and unexpected! Take care of yourself, and best of luck with your endeavors. 🙂

  5. Hope all is well for you! Happy New Year, hope 2017 is kind.
