Waiting on Wednesday (45) — The Gathering Storm by Robin Bridges

Posted by on July 20, 2011
“Waiting On” Wednesday spotlights upcoming releases that everyone’s excited about (created by Jill at Breaking The Spine.)

The Gathering Storm (Katerina Alexandrovna, #1)

St. Petersburg, Russia, 1888. As she attends a whirl of glittering balls, royal debutante Katerina Alexandrovna, Duchess of Oldenburg, tries to hide a dark secret: she can raise the dead. No one knows. Not her family. Not the girls at her finishing school. Not the tsar or anyone in her aristocratic circle. Katerina considers her talent a curse, not a gift. But when she uses her special skill to protect a member of the Imperial Family, she finds herself caught in a web of intrigue.  
An evil presence is growing within Europe’s royal bloodlines—and those aligned with the darkness threaten to topple the tsar. Suddenly Katerina’s strength as a necromancer attracts attention from unwelcome sources . . . including two young men—George Alexandrovich, the tsar’s standoffish middle son, who needs Katerina’s help to safeguard Russia, even if he’s repelled by her secret, and the dashing Prince Danilo, heir to the throne of Montenegro, to whom Katerina feels inexplicably drawn.
The time has come for Katerina to embrace her power, but which side will she choose—and to whom will she give her heart?
The cover is bright and inviting, eh?
The Gathering Storm is expected to be released on January 10th, 2012 by Delacorte Press.

  1. Sounds interesting but at the same time there are just so many paranormal books out there. I would hate to see paranormal even over take the historical books.

  2. This one looks and sounds fantastic. I love reading stories that have the necromancer element. I will definitely be on the lookout for this one. =)
