Long before Catherine was great, Elizabeth was destined to rule the Romanov empire…

The last true Romanov, Elizabeth has once again been denied the throne of Russia. Grieving and isolated, she struggles to protect the few loved ones she has left. But when Empress Anna’s health begins to fail, Elisabeth’s very existence becomes a threat to Anna’s plans to place her chosen heir, the infant Ivan, on the throne.

Knowing only one of them will survive, Elizabeth enters into a dangerous alliance with Anna’s former lover in the hopes of not only returning the crown to its rightful line, but also rescuing her nearly bankrupt nation from the hands of an enemy king determined to bring the country under his rule.

Desperate and willing to sacrifice anything—and anyone—to her gambit, Elizabeth must make her final choice between the destiny that was promised to her and the one man she might truly love.

Violence
5
There is more violence in this book than in previous installments; including some graphic details including a decapitated head in a basket.
Language
4
There is very little bad language in this book but the use of 'whore' justifies a 4 rating.
Romance/Sensuality
5
There is sex in this book which is not overly detailed but not closed door either.
Drugs/Alcohol/Smoking
2
Although it would be acceptable for underage drinking in this time period - in this book there is only mention of adults actually drinking.
Supernatural Characters: There are no supernatural characters in this book.
Other: This is an historical tale and many of today’s standards would not have applied to things. It is of a similar rating to the previous installments in this story. Caution strongly recommended.
