WAIT... WHAT?!

Okay, I only have one thing to say about this book! Sergei must be a vampire or something! In the first book, which takes place in 1745, when Catherine/Sophie arrives at the Russian court, we learn, that Sergei has been with Empress Elizabeth since he was 16/17 - in 1745 he is 20 years old. However, in this book, which takes place during 1725, we see Elizabeth and Sergei's first meeting! Which must make him a vampire, obviously. Or, you know, able to meet women before he was even,

I absolutely loved reading this story!! To be honest, I am completely in love with this entire series!!

The characters were remarkable. I loved reading about Elizabeth. I felt a real connection with this character. Her emotions literally just flowed from the pages as I read this story. I am a complete sucker for a strong female character.

The story-line was incredible. I couldn't put this book down. I read it all completely through in one sitting because I couldn't help but be enchanted by this

EThis is the prequel to a new series that will feature young Elizabeth of Russia. This is a quick novella just at 90 pages so it easy to speed through it and think you might of missed something. It ok you can re read again at a much slower pace. In this short novel we are introduced to Elizabeth and her younger sister Petra. I always been intrigued by stories that center around the Romanov especially Anastasia. I sure this story will steal our hearts like all sherry novels do and i eager to dive ...more

This book was impossible to put down, finished in a few hours. I can’t wait to see what more sherry has to come! I didn’t realize this was a series when I picked it and now need to go back and read books 1-3. There was a harsh truth and pain to the story that just made it so much more.

I have been waiting for this sneak peek novella/book to come out FOREVER!! It was so worth the wait!! I LOVED it!! I devoured it, I read it all in a brief sitting and was instantly depressed when I was finished! I then re-read it, since I knew that I had missed some things (due to my zooming through the pages) - I wanted to see how it ended, but at the same time never wanted it to end!

If this novella is anything like the book that will follow then it is a MUST read and a must read NOW! I love

Any of my followers will well-recall my obsession with Sherry D. Ficklin’s STOLEN EMPIRE saga. The trilogy that really opened my eyes to the world of YA History and changed my reading-life forever. A historian myself, I have always been astounded by Ficklin’s remarkable take on one of history’s most powerful women. But what of the Empress that helped to put her there?

Join Ficklin in another dive into Russia’s rich cultural history with THE WINTER QUEEN. Putting the life of Empress Elizabeth of

I’m a fan of historical fiction and I LOVE the Stolen Empire series—I can’t get enough of it. I was thrilled when I found out there was going to be another book in the series, and again when I receive a copy of Sherry Ficklin’s latest novella in the series.
The Winter Queen is a prequel to the Stolen Empire series and focuses on the life of Elizabeth, the daughter of Peter the Great and future Empress of Russia. This novella is a quick read, and thrusts us right into the upheaval of the Russian

Riveting! Loved and lost twice, only her sister now. Will there be happiness for Elizabeth at all? Moving and fast paced novella that I could not put down once started. Loved it and fits well with this series.

This was a short book and I didn’t put it down until I finished it. Elizabeth is a strong character and I am excited to purchase the next book immediately so I can find out what happens with her next.
