Quotes

'Imogen Edwards-Jones’s first novel for Head of Zeus was <i>The Witches of St Petersburg</i>, about the arrival in Russia of the so-called Black Princesses, Militza and Stana, named not only for their ebony hair and eyes, but also for their skills in the dark arts of the occult. Their rise through the Romanov court coincides with that of Rasputin, and the aftermath of his murder opens this second novel. Sumptuous, sexy, violent, depicting a society on the edge, this is fabulous storytelling about a world that destroys itself and a love reborn from the ashes'
