Editorial Reviews

Review

"Lyrical and compelling, The Swan Princess draws the reader into the world of sixteenth-century Russia, a world unfamiliar to many readers, which becomes vividly real in the hands of this master storyteller. The characters of Nasan, Daniil, and the others leap off the page. Perhaps most intriguing is the portrayal of the clash between the two vibrant but alien cultures of the Russians and the Tatars--frequently at war, occasionally bound by an uneasy and watchful peace."  --Ann Swinfen, author of Voyage to Muscovy

From the Author

The power of the folk tale lies in its ability to capture and express the emotions of ages past and present. For much of history, many women lived constrained by the demands of domesticity, often bound to men not of their choosing under circumstances where they enjoyed little respect among people unconcerned with their needs, feelings, or desires. Is it any wonder that almost every culture includes some variation of the legend in which an animal wife escapes to her wild homeland (earth, sea, sky) after many trials or a selkie or fairy king lures a woman into a world promising enchantment and freedom from toil? This is the dilemma that Nasan faces in the third book of her series.

As a child, C. P. Lesley thought everyone told themselves stories to help themselves fall asleep. It never occurred to her that anyone would pay her for them, and for a long time, she was right--no one would. But after years of producing horrible prose, reading books about novel writing, and pestering hapless fellow-writers and friends to read her drafts, some of the advice stuck, and she finished "The Not Exactly Scarlet Pimpernel," followed by "The Golden Lynx," "The Winged Horse," "The Swan Princess," "The Vermilion Bird," and "The Shattered Drum."

She is currently working on a new series, Songs of Steppe & Forest, which follows selected Legends characters into the 1540s. When not thinking up new ways to torture her characters, she edits other people's manuscripts, reads voraciously, maintains her website, and practices classical ballet. That love of ballet also finds expression in her Tarkei Chronicles series, "Desert Flower" and "Kingdom of the Shades."
