About Vera Nazarian

VERA NAZARIAN is a two-time Nebula Award Finalist, 2018 Dragon Award Finalist, award-winning artist, a member of Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America, and a writer with a penchant for moral fables and stories of intense wonder, true love, and intricacy.

She immigrated to the USA from the former USSR as a kid, sold her first story at the age of 17, and since then has published numerous works in anthologies and magazines, and has seen her fiction translated into eight languages.

She is the author of critically acclaimed novels DREAMS OF THE COMPASS ROSE and LORDS OF RAINBOW, the outrageous parodies MANSFIELD PARK AND MUMMIES and NORTHANGER ABBEY AND ANGELS AND DRAGONS, and most recently, PRIDE AND PLATYPUS: MR. DARCY'S DREADFUL SECRET in her humorous and surprisingly romantic Supernatural Jane Austen Series, as well as the Renaissance epic fantasy COBWEB BRIDE Trilogy.

Her bestselling and award-winning series THE ATLANTIS GRAIL is now a cross-genre phenomenon -- a high-octane YA / teen dystopian apocalyptic science fiction adventure, romance, and historical mystery thriller -- has been optioned for film, and is in development as a major motion picture franchise or TV series.

After many years in Los Angeles, Vera lives in a small town in Vermont, and uses her Armenian sense of humor and her Russian sense of suffering to bake conflicted pirozhki and make art.

Reviews of Win by Vera Nazarian

Stormswift reviewed on July 7, 2020

A well written blend of scifi; action adventure; fantasy (who doesn’t want a talking Pegasus with a sense of humour?) and romance.

“The Games are Forever”. Gwen Lark is amongst many of the lucky teenagers to arrive on Atlantis having escaped the impending extinction level event (ELE). If it can be called luck to survive the gruelling trials of Qualify and Compete (1st 2 books in the series).

An unexpected proposal and Gwen has an adoring Imperial Bridegroom. Unfortunately her prospective father-in-law deems her unsuitable and forces her to enter the Grail Games – a contest for citizenship – citizens have more freedom and privileges.

The Games are vicious killing grounds and Gwen is not a killer. She gradually gathers a team that helps each other through the game. Will she outlast the bloodthirsty celebrity contenders and the sadistic stages of the game?

An epic novel with a story and length well worth the price tag.
