"A bold beginning to a series that explores gender, empathy, and the frozen north." - Kirkus. In “The Midnight Land: Part One,” the first installment of the Tolstoy-meets-Tolkien epic fantasy series “The Zemnian Trilogy,” we meet Slava, younger sister to the Empress of all of Zem’. Tormented by her gifts of empathy and clairvoyance, Slava tries to escape the intrigue of her native kremlin by joining a mission to explore beyond the sunline, the unmapped Northern edge of the greatest country in the Known World. But instead of escaping her destiny, Slava finds herself and her gifts the target of the gods themselves. Hailed as “an original, and ambitious fantasy“ (Manhattan Book Review), “Beautifully unique and rich in a Central European and West Asian feel that comes together with a surprising and wonder-filled world” (SPR), and "A riveting saga [that] will leave fantasy fiction fans looking eagerly toward the next installment of this outstanding series" (Midwest Book Review), “The Midnight Land” combines the genre of high fantasy with the “big questions” of Russian literature in a subversive exploration of gender, culture, and morality.
