#indiethursday: Cry of the Firebird
This #indiethursday I’m sharing my love of…
Steeped in Finnish and Russian mythology, Cry of the Firebird is a fantasy that would appeal to fans of American Gods by Neil Gaiman, C.Gockel’s I Bring the Fire series and Sergei Lukyanenko’s NightWatch.
After the murder of Anya’s shaman grandfather, Tuoni the Finnish God of the Dead, arrives to give her a mission; awaken her magic and take up the family mantle of Gate Keeper to Skazki, the terrifying world of legend, before monsters and dark gods break in and start a war in the human world.
Joined by Yvan, a Skazki prince who can transform into the legendary firebird, Anya is hunted by the prince’s dark-magic-wielding brother, and they are forced to flee to Skazki for safety. There, they meet a host of friendly and hostile forces, and Anya learns the secret history of her family.
Anya’s magic is unstable, and she finds herself returning to the real world, bringing all of her new enemies with her…
To compensate for my lack of time to do long reviews just now, I’m using the #indiethursday hashtag to share the indie love and point at some fabulous indie books I’ve enjoyed reading 😀
