AN APPLE iBOOKS BEST BOOK FOR AUGUST

Praise for Orphan, Agent, Prima, Pawn


Orphan, Agent, Prima, Pawn is the perfect historical novel: a story that could be told in no other era or place, with the most ruthless characters. Inventive as Elizabeth Kiem is, I wish she could conjure a time machine, too. Her sophisticated book is exactly what I craved as a teenager, rich with romance, risk, political intrigue, caviar, high art, forbidden rock and roll, and one tough, stunning heroine, already marked by history.” 
—Anna Godbersen, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Luxe and The Blonde

“This final piece of the Bolshoi Saga is a satisfying though bittersweet conclusion, and it is artfully crafted to stand on its own, enticing readers to pick up the earlier volumes.”
—Booklist

“Sveta’s high-stakes lifestyle and relationships will keep readers flipping pages…A richly imagined novel that offers a unique perspective on the Soviet Union.”
—Kirkus Reviews

“I cannot say enough good things about Kiem’s writing. She shines a spotlight on the historical period of the Thaw, writing about it with as much realism, grace, and spirit as she does the internal life of an adolescent girl.”
—Criminal Element

Praise for Elizabeth Kiem

“A tangle of bad guys and intrigue . . . The results are enjoyably escapist.”
The New York Times

“A hair-raising tale of lost illusions and self-discovery . . . A look behind the curtains at the dangers and obstacles of ambition.”
—Joy Womack, principal ballerina of the Kremlin Ballet

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

“Primal and raw, brutal in its examination of human behavior, and pulsing with tension . . . Kiem’s detailed knowledge of Russian language and culture adds just the right amount of authenticity to a thrilling adventure.”
—Lindsay Smith, author of Sekret

“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
