About the Book

If her time at court has taught Catherine anything, it’s that there is no room for weakness in Imperial Russia. With the Empress’ health failing and rumors of a change in the line of succession, her place in the royal line is once more in jeopardy. Tormented by her sadistic husband and his venomous mistress, Catherine must once more walk the fine line between pleasure and politics—between scandal and survival.

When her young son becomes the target of those rebelling against Peter’s reign, Catherine will have to rise up to protect herself, her child, and her nation from his unstable and potentially catastrophic rule. This means putting herself at odds with the most dangerous man she’s ever known, trusting those who once proved to be her enemies, and turning a nation against its sovereign. In the ultimate battle for the crown, new alliances will be forged, loyalties will be tested, and blood will be shed.

Don’t miss this breathtaking conclusion to the Stolen Empire series!

Queen of Tomorrow is a YA historical fiction based on the life of young Catherine the Great. Fans of the hit TV show REIGN will devour this scandalous glimpse into the life of one of the most dynamic women in history.

Violence
5
There is slightly less violence in this book than in previous installments but there is still domestic abuse (Some very graphic including settting a person on fire) , conspiracy plots, deaths, and murder.
Language
4
Romance/Sensuality
5
Although the sex in the book is of a closed door nature, there is one scene that may be perceived as particularly scandalous and not what is generally accepted as a normal sexual encounter with young adults.
Drugs/Alcohol/Smoking
3
There are several scenes in the book with underage drinking (including in excess to where they are intoxicated) but it is set in a different time and country during which time such things would all have been considered acceptable and at times even expected behavior.

Supernatural Characters: N/A

Other: This is a historical tale and many of today’s standards would not have applied to things (such as the drinking). This is by far the most scandalous of the 3 books when it comes to content.  Definitely for mature teenagers only.  Caution strongly recommended.
