My Shelf Monday: The Katerina Trilogy by Robin Bridges

Publisher: Random House Children’s Books

Description (from The Gathering Storm):

St. Petersburg, Russia, 1888. As she attends a whirl of glittering balls, royal debutante Katerina Alexandrovna, Duchess of Oldenburg, tries to hide a dark secret: she can raise the dead. No one knows. Not her family. Not the girls at her finishing school. Not the tsar or anyone in her aristocratic circle. Katerina considers her talent a curse, not a gift. But when she uses her special skill to protect a member of the Imperial Family, she finds herself caught in a web of intrigue.

An evil presence is growing within Europe’s royal bloodlines—and those aligned with the darkness threaten to topple the tsar. Suddenly Katerina’s strength as a necromancer attracts attention from unwelcome sources . . . including two young men—George Alexandrovich, the tsar’s standoffish middle son, who needs Katerina’s help to safeguard Russia, even if he’s repelled by her secret, and the dashing Prince Danilo, heir to the throne of Montenegro, to whom Katerina feels inexplicably drawn.

The time has come for Katerina to embrace her power, but which side will she choose—and to whom will she give her heart?

Where did I get them?

I bought The Gathering Storm from Chapters, and The Unfailing Light and The Morning Star (no longer available) from Book Outlet! This was back in December – some of the last books I bought in 2015!

Why did I get them?

The Unfailing Light and The Morning Star were both really inexpensive on Book Outlet, and the plots piqued my interest, so I got them. It was another case of me buying cheap books even though they weren’t on my TBR.

Have I read them?

Yes ||| No

Why haven’t I read them?

There have been a lot of highly-anticipated released lately that I’ve been trying to get through, which take precedence.

Where are they on my TBR?

Somewhere in the middle, I’d say; they’re not far enough down to include them in my unhaul, but I probably won’t get to them for a while.


My Shelf Monday is a weekly post on my blog in which I discuss one of the books/series that I own. It’s a way to catalogue my book collection, and it also acts as a slow, miniature tour of my shelves.

Thanks for reading!
