Tell us about THE GODDESS OF DANCE.
To pursue her love, the princess must fight the impossible odds. On one hand, mysterious god-like powers are after her for what she has done. On the other -- her father, the sultan, is forcing her to fulfill her duty to her country by marrying a neighboring prince she does not care for. And, on top of that, she is haunted by mysterious dreams of a girl learning the powerful ancient art of the sacred dance.
In the novel, the princess will go though many deadly trials in her impossible quest to be reunited with the man she loves.
THE GODDESS OF DANCE is book 2 in a series, isn't it? Do the readers need to start with book 1?
It is book 2, but the story is a stand-alone and I hope the readers can enjoy it without any knowledge of the previous events. Book 1, THE PRINCESS OF DHAGABAD, is more of a coming of age story, where the princess's love for her djinn grows slowly as she emerges from a 12-year-old girl into a woman of seventeen. In THE GODDESS OF DANCE she starts off as a woman and embarks on adventures of her own to learn magic and take her destiny into her own hands.
