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.


My Review: I can't get enough of Sherrys work!

Sophie is so amazing and will make a bigger difference when she becomes queen. People are sick and in need of help. She goes to them. Brings supplies, medicine, and anything they need. She even gets off her horse, and interacts with them directly! Like how awesome is she?! Plus how many would actually go out themselves, instead of staying in a warm home and sending out someone to go to the errand.

Sophie is already loved by many and she is always showing how she cares for the people. She is working hard at making sure her future is set and that things will work out well. No matter how hard she tries, things will get in the way. Too bad for that road block, because Sophie is good at taking care of things and keeping her future plans going smoothly.

I loved this story. Sherry is a freakishly amazing author. I finished this book quickly and just can't wait to get my hands on the next book!
