About the Book

Before she can become the greatest empress in history, fifteen-year-old Sophie will have to survive her social-climbing mother’s quest to put her on the throne of Russia—at any cost.

Imperial Court holds dangers like nothing Sophie has ever faced before. In the heart of St. Petersburg, surviving means navigating the political, romantic, and religious demands of the bitter Empress Elizabeth and her handsome, but sadistic nephew, Peter. Determined to save her impoverished family—and herself—Sophie vows to do whatever is necessary to thrive in her new surroundings. But an attempt on her life and an unexpected attraction threatens to derail her plans.

Alone in a new and dangerous world, learning who to trust and who to charm may mean the difference between becoming queen and being sent home in shame to marry her lecherous uncle. With traitors and murderers lurking around every corner, her very life hangs in the balance. Betrothed to one man but falling in love with another, Sophie will need to decide how much she’s willing to sacrifice in order to become the empress she is destined to be.

In a battle for the soul of a nation, will love or destiny reign supreme?

I REALLY hate to give it a level four. I don't think it deserves it. There is only one instance of damn in the whole book. However, the word whore is used about 5 times.
Violence
4
There are instances of violence, murder, and torture, but none is explicitly detailed or gory in my opinion.
Romance/Sensuality
5
There is sex but it is completely FADE TO BLACK with no graphic details at all. There are scenes that discuss sex.
Drugs/Alcohol/Smoking
2
The characters in the book are not of modern drinking age. However, this is not a modern book. There were no drinking age laws. They were allowed to drink. Moderate use of alcohol in the book.
