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. Even her beloved Hasan cannot save her this time, as his enemies lure him into the mysterious True Library, destined to trap all-powerful wizards in a magical desert beyond this world.

A romantic fantasy adventure with the exotic flavor of the Arabian Nights, THE GODDESS OF DANCE explores a truly original concept of djinns, absolute power, and immortality.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
This stand-alone sequel to the concurrently re-released The Princess of Dhagabad begins after the titular princess, Gul’Agdar, has freed her beloved, a djinn named Hasan, leaving him both human and all-powerful. They are not, however, free to pursue their love. The Caliph Agabei of Megina has heard a prophecy that one who frees a djinn will possess the power to destroy the world, so he plots with the help of his own djinn slave, the beautiful, mysterious Shogat, to trap Hasan for eternity. Through it all, Gul’Agdar’s own magic, tied to the long-lost Dance of the Goddess, is rising through dreams of an ancient dancer named Thea. Kashina’s arabesque novel alternates between effervescence and repose, retelling old tales with nothing unexpected plotwise but plenty of evocative language that will have readers dreaming of summoning their own djinn.
