Description

Against the pristine ice of Heaven, spilled blood and a demon's fire will spark celestial war. The exiled heir to the throne of Heaven, Grand Duchess Anazakia, and her demon companions, Belphagor and Vasily, have made a comfortable home in the Russian city of Arkhangel'sk, but their domestic bliss is short lived. When their daughter, Ola, is taken as a pawn in Heaven's demon revolution, the delicate fabric of their unorthodox family is torn apart--threatening to separate Belphagor and Vasily for good. Anazakia is prepared to move Heaven and Earth to get her daughter back from Queen Aeval, risen in Elysium from the ashes of temporary defeat. But Aeval isn't the only one seeking Ola's strange power. To conquer the forces amassing against them, Anazakia is prophesied to sacrifice one close to her heart, while Vasily's fire will prove more potent than anyone suspected. In the ultimate battle for supremacy over Heaven's empire, loyalties will be tested and secrets will be revealed, but love will reign supernal.show more

Review quote

Praise for The House of Arkhangel'sk "A fantasy thriller, it isn't about the Romanovs per se, but about a sort of Romanovian dynasty, if said Romanovs were supernal rulers in were killed off by a power-hungry, possessed cousin...This is a tense, engaging fantasy thriller that is just a bit sassy or tongue in cheek and chock full of Russian flavor...A great read for a long winter weekend." -Russian Life Magazine "Heaven and all their number"Kindred's tale is a romantic, mature, and lyrical collage of heaven, hell, and a magical royal legend. The combination is divinely--and demonically--inspired." - Alethea Kontis, New York Times bestselling author of ENCHANTED "Angels, demons, sex. Heaven, hell, war. Blood and royalty, history and magic, fire and ice. And a story you cannot put down. This is fantasy at its best." - Stephen Graham Jones, author of IT CAME FROM DEL RIO "Jane Kindred's The House of Arkhangel'sk dazzles with its surreal blending of worlds. Lost angel Anazakia, last survivor of her murdered family, finds herself in the hands of demons with suspect motives, betrayed by her own kind, stranded in the world of Man--21st century St. Petersburg, Russia, to be exact. Weaving startling visuals with compelling characters, Kindred reveals parallels in the two worlds that are 'neither haphazard chance nor calculated design.' It's a dizzying, vibrant read." - Lynn Flewelling, author of The Bone Doll's Twin and the 'Nightrunner' seriesshow more

About Jane Kindred

Jane Kindred began writing romantic fantasy novellas at the age of 12 in the wayback of a Plymouth Fury--which, as far as she recalls, never killed anyone who didn't have it coming. Born in Billings, Montana, she was soon whisked away to Tucson, Arizona where she spent most of her childhood ruining her eyes reading romance novels in the sun (and watching Star Trek marathons in the dark). Although she was repeatedly urged to learn a marketable skill in case she couldn't find a man to marry her, she received a B.A. in Creative Writing anyway from the University of Arizona. She now lives in San Francisco with her son, two feline overlords who are convinced she is constantly plotting their death, and a cockatiel named Imhotep who punishes her for sins in a past life (and whom she frequently imagines tastily smoked, dried, and splayed on a stick like omul fished from Lake Baikal). Jane is represented by Sara Megibow of Nelson Literary Agency.show more
