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.
I loved the first novel in the Katerina trilogy, The Gathering Storm and you can see my review: here. First, I am fascinated by necromancers. (I know creepy right?) Katerina is such a fun, strong, fearless protagonist and I look forward to seeing how she handles the return of Russia’s nemesis and a ghost!
