A to Z Challenge 2017: Q


Before she can become the greatest empress in history, fifteen-year-old Sophie will have to survive her social-climbing mother’s quest to put her on the throne of Russia—at any cost.

Imperial Court holds dangers like nothing Sophie has ever faced before. In the heart of St. Petersburg, surviving means navigating the political, romantic, and religious demands of the bitter Empress Elizabeth and her handsome, but sadistic nephew, Peter. Determined to save her impoverished family—and herself—Sophie vows to do whatever is necessary to thrive in her new surroundings. But an attempt on her life and an unexpected attraction threatens to derail her plans.

Alone in a new and dangerous world, learning who to trust and who to charm may mean the difference between becoming queen and being sent home in shame to marry her lecherous uncle. With traitors and murderers lurking around every corner, her very life hangs in the balance. Betrothed to one man but falling in love with another, Sophie will need to decide how much she’s willing to sacrifice in order to become the empress she is destined to be.

In a battle for the soul of a nation, will love or destiny reign supreme?

This is the type pf book that I would never pick up to read in a bookstore because it does not fall in my "genre" but that I absolutely love.  Thank you kindle!  I am sad that I got too rushed to be continuing on with the series at this point.  (or even updating my poor Goodreads :/) May is going to be spent catching up on finishing this series as well as the one I read for H.


  1. This isn't my genre either. But I also like to widen my kind of lectures thanks to recommendations, or articles I read...

  2. I love when trying something new pays off. This book doesn't really look like it's for me either, but who knows? :)

  3. Will the fifteen-year-old Sophie have to navigate a political, romantic, and religious landscape? Plus there is mention of traitors and murderers ...sounds like quite a challenge.
