The Gathering Stormby Robin Bridges
Expected Publication: January 10th 2012by Delacorte Books for Young Readers


Description from Goodreads:

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?

  1. I actually think I've seen this on NetGalley and didn't request it because I still have too many review books to read. But it sounds amazing. :)Great pick,Carina

  2. I've been pining for this book for some time but I haven't been able to read the full summary before now–I'm even more excited! I love the Russian language and the stories on the royals of time period are most fascinating. I can't wait to get this!- Asher (from Paranormal Indulgence)
