I hope you enjoy this first book, and I thank you from the depths of my heart for your support of my writing and my country. The second and third parts of the Tales lie ahead!

It’s rare to find an author like  Oleg Veretskiy. We are honored to publish his fantasy trilogy in English translation, as well as his “War Through My Eyes” essays.

Marina Palenyy Bailey

I knew that Oleg had built a meaningful world because his story left me, a full-blown adult, needing to hear the ending. It’s been amazing to unlock this book for English readers.

Laura Williams

It’s been fascinating to work on the graphics and to build Oleg’s website. I feel like I have a backstage pass to the book production process and to Ukraine’s struggle.

Editing this book has been a transformative experience for me, especially working closely with translator Marina and author Oleg, and discovering my talented assistant editor, Megan.

I care so much about this story, about the crew that is dedicated from the heart to see it through, about the author, and his beloved country at war…how can I not?”
