Katerina Trilogy #02: The Unfailing Lightby Robin Bridges
Synopses & Reviews
Lush and opulent, romantic and sinister, The Unfailing Light, Volume II in The Katerina Trilogy, reimagines the lives of Russia's aristocracy in a fabulously intoxicating and page-turning fantasy.
Having had no choice but to use her power has a necromancer to save Russia from dark forces, Katerina Alexandrovna, Duchess of Oldenburg, now wants to forget that she ever used her special powers. She's about to set off to pursue her lifelong dream of attending medical school when she discovers that Russia's arch nemesis--who she thought she'd destroyed--is still alive. So on imperial orders, Katerina remains at her old finishing school. She'll be safe there, because the empress has cast a potent spell to protect it against the vampires and revenants who are bent on toppling the tsar and using Katerina for their own gains. But to Katerina's horror, the spell unleashes a vengeful ghost within the school, a ghost more dangerous than any creature trying to get in.
"Katerina's first-person voice is smart and believable, fitting well into this atmospheric romance."--Kirkus Reviews
From the Hardcover edition.
Katerina Alexandrovna, Duchess of Oldenburg, can no longer deny her power as a necromancer. Not after having used that power to perform a lifesaving ritual for the tsar. And though Katerina has discovered that many in her aristocratic circle possess supernatural abilities, she sees her special gift as more of a curse, one that can only harm those she loves—including the tsar's son, George Alexandrovich. So she is determined to leave Russia to protect those dearest to her.
But Katerina's plans are put on hold when Konstantin the Deathless again returns from the beyond to stir up the dark forces within the ranks of the aristocracy. Katerina must remain at finishing school. She'll be safe there; the tsar's wife has cast a potent spell to keep out all evil, protecting Katerina from the sinister Prince Danilo, who still wants to get her in his clutches. But to Katerina's horror, the empress's spell awakens a vengeful ghost within the school—a threat more dangerous than anything trying to get in.
