Description


The Bolshoi Saga: Lana
Lana Dukovskaya is an up and coming talent at the Bolshoi Ballet, where her mother Marina also danced until her career came to a mysterious end. On the eve of an international tour, Lana's best friend and chief rival is brutally attacked, making Lana both the substitute soloist and the prime suspect.
Once in New York, Lana meets Georgi Levshik, a powerful Russian emigre who claims to know the truth about her mother's past. Lana is wary, torn between curiosity and distrust. But when another young dancer is struck down just hours before her debut, Lana knows she is in danger. On the run, Lana puts her trust in Levshik's alluring bodyguard, Roma. Together they must uncover the truth about a blood feud involving three generations of Dukovskaya dancers.

Praise For…


Praise for Dancer, Daughter, Traitor, Spy

Dancer, Daughter, Traitor, Spy culminates in a tangle of bad guys and intrigue.... [Evokes] the bleakness and nostalgic charms of the early 1980s [in Russia]. The results are enjoyably escapist. For [readers] enamored with the Russia of literature and film, who want something slightly more contemporary.”
The New York Times

“Exceptional.”
Teen Ink

"Terrifying... Historical fiction meets spy thriller, Dancer, Daughter, Traitor, Spy is sure to keep you on the edge of your seat."
Dance Spirit Magazine

“In a world where nothing makes sense, what is sanity?.... This atmospheric, suspenseful story is one of devotion and deception,  innocence and independence, friendship and love, music and dance, immigration and coming of age.”
—Booklist (starred review)

"Sophisticated storytelling with complex characterization and details that provide color and texture... A compelling portrait of a young woman on the verge of adulthood, caught up in the domestic secrets of her parents and the enmity of two countries."
—Kirkus Reviews

"I love a book that plunges me headlong into an unfamiliar world. This twisty, dark mystery has it all—terrible choices, narrow escapes, last chance gambles, and the desperate risks you’ll take to save the person you love."
—National Book Award Winner Judy Blundell

"Dancer, Daughter, Traitor, Spy has it all: love, death, ballet, and pop music during the Cold War '80s. A romantic, suspenseful, and gracefully-written novel."
—Natalie Standiford, author of How to Say Goodbye in Robot and Confessions of the Sullivan Sisters

"Fascinating ... The twists and turns, as Marina tries to decide whom she can really trust, keep readers guessing right up to the end, just as a good spy novel should."
—School Library Journal

"Think The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo meets Sookie Stackhouse."
—Brooklyn Based

“Kiem has a way with language that brings her surroundings to life whether it's 1982 Russia with its long bread lines, Brighton Beach with its Russian gangsters or the dirty streets of Manhattan.”
—Fresh Fiction
