“Hell Rode With Her”

Novelette in Apollo's Daughters

Edited by Bryan Young

February 1944. After ten years of exile, war-weary young sorceress Anja Kernova returns to the Russian village where she grew up. But there is no hero’s welcome for her — only the bitter stings of betrayal and rejection, and the discovery of a dire new threat to Mother Russia that will put her courage and her loyalty to the test.

Hell Rode With Her (illustration)

This brand-new novelette is a companion piece to The Midnight Front, a new World War II-era supernatural thriller coming in January 2018 from Tor Books.


Apollo’s Daughters is an anthology of short fantasy and science-fiction stories featuring strong female main characters, written by male authors. It is a companion volume to the Athena’s Daughters anthology, which contained tales of strong female characters written by female authors.
