This must be the most interesting alternative history that I’ve ever read. It asks the utterly bizarre question; “What if a Siberian Joan of Arc had rescued the White Armies at a critical point of the Russian Civil War in 1919?” And it turns out that the answer is a lot more entertaining than you could have reasonably expected.
Zhanna Dorokhina is 18 as the civil war rages around her. She’s smart, capable and virtuous. There are voices in her head, and they are starting to indicate that there’s an important future for her – if she’s brave enough to stand up to tyranny and nearly every person in Russia. What follows will completely take your breath away.
