(young adult 13+ fantasy) Over 2 Mio hardcover sold in Russia alone, movie option sold
Sherba creates a completely new world, invents its mechanis and gets away from all the clichés and stereotypes. The world of TIME WIZARDS is full of creatures, magic castles, spells… Apart from a breathtaking plot line, her books bear a very specific moral charge for a younger audience.
(new adult 17+ postapocalypsis)
They quickly learn how to kill, but learning how to love does not seem to be worth the effort anymore.
The unusually cinematic and graphic descriptions of locations and events, but also of atrocities and violence keep the level of suspense high. No wonder the movie option has been sold.
