Reader question: In what order should I read Lada’s books?

Actually, you can read them in any order you like, or you can read them in the sequence suggested below. The list of books: 1 epic novel THE EARTH SHIFTER (104k words – 390 pages), 2 full-size novels: GOLD TRAIN and Stepford USA (about 69k words – 290 pages each), and 2 novelettes, Green Desert and Catharsis, which are smaller than novels (12k words – 30-40 pages each). It is also useful to check out book descriptions and reviews for each book on Amazon. Click on each book cover below to visit its Amazon page!

Accidental Spy Series:

GOLD TRAIN (Accidental Spy Russia Adventure) #2 – intense, revealing and fast-paced spy thriller & treasure adventure novel, Amazon bestseller 2012. STEPFORD USA (Accidental Spy Small Town Adventure) #1 – a lighter-toned mystery/thriller novel for cat and dog lovers, as well as lovers of truth and justice, humor and happy ends. Green Desert (Accidental Spy Iraq Prequel) #0 – short, but dramatic ‘butterfly effect’ read that makes you think about the world around us.

While you can certainly read just one or two Accidental Spy books, it helps to read these sequentially (#0 – #1 – #2) in order to better understand character development and follow the events. This series is united by the main heroine, the jet setting, truth-and-justice-seeking American journalist with Russian roots, Jade Snow, and several other characters. Other than that, each adventure is different. Please read synopsis below to decide whether you would like to read all of these, or just the ones to which you are most drawn.

Earth Shifter & Earth Keepers:

THE EARTH SHIFTER – consistently reader top-rated. Prophetic, mystical  adventure/thriller. The main book of this series (more books are projected, but no dates as of now), it is Lada’s depository of mystical knowledge and visionary wisdom – her cornerstone novel. Set in Moscow, Lake Baikal, Siberia, New York and Princeton, as well as the mystical realms of Heaven and Earth, this book is filled with spies and clandestine global agendas,  adventures and drama, shamans and higher consciousness prophecies. Much can be said about this book; however, it’s better to actually read it!

Catharsis (Legend of the Lemurians), Earth Keepers #1 – a short, but cosmic in action & feel, mystical adventure. Written as a brief, alternative history prequel and companion to The Earth Shifter. Earth Keepers share the higher wisdom and altruistic feel of The Earth Shifter. More books will be added to this mini-series of novelettes eventually.

ES COVER ebook

A Prophetic Mystical Thriller – Top-rated

THE EARTH SHIFTER in itself is Earth’s record-keeper, a warning, and a prophecy.

Prophecy of the Key: “Every time human civilization reaches a crucial threshold, the Key of Destiny appears to open the coveted door into the future of unheard potential for humanity. It has happened before…and it is about to happen now. Except the new Key is unique and precious, even by the Cosmic Key of Destiny standards. Its perilous path is fraught with mystical discovery and mortal danger, as many powerful and ruthless forces line up to prevent the Key from fulfilling its destiny.”

Comet of Karma tasked with destroying a failing civilization… Earth Keepers agonizing over the ultimate decision…. Protectors risking their lives to keep the world intact… Global conspiracy attempting to usurp power on Earth… Old spy organization with a secret human weapon… Shifters, with power over mind, matter, time, and space… And three teenagers, two of whom are born to become the all-important Key of Destiny, if they succeed in keeping their souls uncorrupted, and if they manage to come together before it’s too late!

Major themes: 1. Massive conspiracy to control the world by a group of powerful and ruthless individuals who remain in the shadows, except their pointmen, CIA boss and a Russian oligarch; 2. Remote Viewing and Russian Intelligence; 3. Time travel and Siberian shamanic powers; 5. Underworld populated with mysterious beings whose true power and motives are unknown.

Setting: Sacred Lake Baikal in Siberia, Moscow & New York.
The Earth Shifter is filled with impressive cast of characters, punctuated with mind-bending twists, and wrapped in a fabric of profound revelations.

CATHARSIS (Legend of the Lemurians)


Karma can be a beautiful maiden or a bitch… Where was the mysterious Lemuria? How was it related to Atlantis? What were the secret origins of humanity? 

This metaphysical fantasy/sci-fi novelette is a prequel/companion to THE EARTH SHIFTER, and first in the new mini-series. As the red planet Catharsis faces its destruction, the race of the Lemurians is saved from the catastrophe by the goddess Mu and taken to their new home, Earth. We follow the altruistic adventures of Morf, the leader of the young Lemurains both on Catharsis and as the nebulous inter-dimensional craft brings him and his tribe to the promised land, later dubbed Lemuria. In the following books we’ll also meet the neighboring race of Atlanteans and witness the appearance of the first Earth Keepers, leading the mini-series to its explosive conclusion.

This top-rated read, containing powerful and timely messages, is great for most readers. While the majority of readers are adults, teens 12 and up are also invited to check it out.

Genre: visionary/metaphysical, fantasy/sci-fi, alternative history.  11,000 words, 32 pages

GOLD TRAIN (Accidental Spy Russia Adventure)

2012 Amazon/Kindle bestseller! Based on true historic events
Begin your secret love affair with Russia! GOLD TRAIN is a fast-paced thrill ride, complete with deadly conspiracy, FSB spies, dangerous romance and an unexpected mystical element. 
Think Jason Bourne & Russia House fusion with a mystical twist…
1918: Civil War in Russia. The entire Gold Reserve of the Russian Empire vanishes without a trace. 
Today: Jade Snow, international journalist and stay-at-home mom turned spy extraordinaire, travels to Russia to reconnect with the half-forgotten country of her ancestors and investigate tantalizing mystery of the Gold Train. Instead, she lands in the midst of a deadly international conspiracy threatening to change the fate of one of the world’s most powerful nations, and finds forbidden love that she had never looked for. Embroiled in a net of intrigue, secrets and royal glamor, and refusing to be a pawn in a struggle of forces beyond her control, Jade must choose between her worst friends and best enemies… and the world’s future just might depend on her choice!
A close-up look at Russia’s turbulent history and its fast-evolving present, this spy thriller is in fact a love story. Yes, there is an intense love intrigue between the two protagonists, Jade and Alexei. However, there is also something much more profound. The secret love developing between Jade and Alexei is a symbol of the forbidden and confusing love affair, which has always existed between some people in the West and Russia. The mysterious Russian soul and the mystical attraction of this country is what Jade experiences fully during her Russian adventure.
Gold Train is a fast-paced thrill-ride adventure based on real historic and recent events. As such, it is geared towards all those who want to know the truth and who are not afraid to look it in the eye!
Genre: historical mystery, geopolitical/spy thriller, action/adventure. For readers 16+ due to a couple of steamy (but tasteful) romantic scenes. NO adult language or overt violence. Spectacular setting and tons of valuable information about history and Russia. 68,000 words, 288 print pages

STEPFORD USA (Accidental Spy Small Town Adventure)


Not all conspiracies are global; some are well-hidden in small towns with perfect facades…

Experience Jade Snow’s humble beginnings as a sexy international super-sleuth in “Small Town USA,” before she turns spy extraordinaire in GOLD TRAIN (Accidental Spy Russia Adventure)! 
Jade Snow, international journalist who braved Iraq and Afghanistan, arrives to the idyllic Berkshires, MA. But Stepford is the perfect town where nothing is what it seems. The idea is for Jade to get her rest before the arrival of the baby and while her husband is on a dangerous assignment to Somalia. However as usual, Jade finds a life-threatening adventure where no one else would look. She must get to the bottom of the unlikely local conspiracy, free up a rape victim from her terrified silence and rehabilitate the wronged man. All this, while managing to stay sane and alive. Camouflaged as a cozy mystery, including the incumbent knitting club and a cool super-sleuth cat, Stepford USA digs much deeper, including the ironic look at a typical American small town setup, complete with kindly, yet utterly clueless local knitting ladies, and a stinging satire encouraging the reader to acknowledge the corruption and failures of the American justice system.
Beautiful setting, a wisp of romance, mystical element + humor included at no extra charge. For readers 14 through adult. Includes Accidental Spy Sampler: excerpt from GOLD TRAIN + excerpt from future DRAGON GATE, Accidental Spy Asia Adventure

Genre: women sleuths, mystery/thriller, action/adventure, a bit of paranormal/metaphysical. 70,000 words, 292 print pages

GREEN DESERT (Accidental Spy Iraq Prequel novelette)


Butterfly effect with a twist, this full of drama read explores how interconnected we really are in this world! 
“Being in the wrong place at just the right time is my specialty.”
Meet Jade Snow, kick-ass international journalist, turned stay-at-home mom (Stepford USA), turned spy extraordinaire (Gold Train). Set in Iraq, this is her experience before the start of the Accidental Spy Series.
Jade Snow, a young, beautiful and ambitious international journalist, arrives to Iraq circa 2007. In war-torn Baghdad she witnesses a dramatic suicide bombing. As two unlikely letters from the opposite sides of the conflict literally drop in her lap, she sets upon a clandestine journey to reconstruct the events and uncover the shocking connection between the suicide bomber, a young Iraqi girl, and American sergeant killed in the attack.
A short, but riveting read for readers 14 through adult, incorporating psychology, world events, adventure, karma, and even some humor! Do you want to know the truth about the Iraqi war? As one reviewer put it: “This story will rock your world.” Bill Tillman

With comprehensive Accidental Spy sampler, including excerpts from Stepford USA, Gold Train, and from the future Dragon Gate (Asia Adventure)! Genre: thriller, action/adventure, war & peace. 12,500 words, 34 pages

Lada’s tricks for the enjoyable ebook reading experience

As opposed to paperbacks, which we all love, ebooks may seem different and intimidating, unless you are tech savvy. But ebooks are really quite easy to read, if you know a few tricks! Ebooks can be read if you have a Kindle reader (for other retailers also Nook, IPad, Sony reader, etc.). Ebooks can also be read on any Android Tablet such as Archos. Archos allows for reading ebooks in any format – unlike some of the dedicated readers that restrict you to reading in a specific format, thus limiting you to a specific ebook retailer.

If you don’t have any of these, no problem!

KINDLE for PC can be downloaded FREE on Amazon when you purchase any ebook. You’ll see this option right on top of the book cover. It’s called KINDLE APP. Therefore, any ebook can be downloaded and read directly on your computer!

If you still prefer the feel of a print book in your hands, paperbacks of my books are available by clicking on the same links above!
