Goodreads Summary:
Sophie—now Catherine, Grand Duchess of Russia—had a tough first year at Imperial Court. Married at sixteen to Grand Duke Peter, heir to the throne, and settled in their own palace, things are finally looking up. As a new day dawns, she thinks only of securing her future, and the future of their country, during one of the greatest political upheavals of her time. Fighting desperately against forces trying to depose the Empress Elizabeth and put the young Prince Ivan on her throne, Sophie soon finds herself in the middle of a war brewing between her beloved Prussia, and her new empire. But even as she navigates the fragile political landscape, she quickly realizes that she has only begun to discover the tangled web of deceit and infidelity woven over the lavish court of Oranienbaum Palace.

When a strange and delicate alliance forms between the young couple, she glimpses a future of happiness, only to see it lost in a moment at the hands of those who still seek to end her life—and prevent her reign. Out of favor with the empress and running out of options, Sophie will have to sacrifice her own innocence on the altar of Russia if she is to save the nation, and herself. To survive, she will have to do the unthinkable, betray those closest to her and become something greater and more dangerous than she ever imagined she could be… a queen.

 
I absolutely adore this series and think it deserves much more attention than it is getting!! The story's oh so intense and gripping not to mention the main character, Sophie/Catherine, is such a fantastic heroine!
 
What are you guys waiting on this week?

  6. I'm kinda torn about this series because for one the story sounds so intriguing and I love historical fiction and Catherine The Great!
    But as silly as it might seem... the covers don't draw me in at all, quite the contrary!

  7. You've definitely piqued my interest in this series. I will be reading!!

    I agree with the cover concerns. But I also didn't like the cover for "the winners curse" and that was brilliant.
