Free download ß Empress of the Night A Novel of Catherine the Great 102 Catherine the Great muses on her life her relentless battle between love and power the country she brought into the glorious new century and the bodies left in her wake By the end of her life she had accomplished than virtually any. I would like to preface this review with the statement that this book is in no way a testament to the author s talent I read the previous book in this series The Winter Palace and was very engrossed with the author s ability to convey the rise to power of Catherine the Great through the eyes of a servant who comes to be a close friend Because that book was so well done I was thrilled to be granted an advanced reader s copy of the book to follow I only wish Empress of the Night could have lived up to the expectationsFrom what I can discern the problem with this book stems from the way in which it is structured The story begins with Catherine as an old woman before long she is incapacitated on the seat of her toilet with a crushing headache pain and the inability to move her body As she contemplates what to do she continues to reflect back on her past beginning with when she first arrived at the Russian court as Princess Sophie to be engaged to Peter III To hear about this time in her life was almost like a refresher course for the readers who have read The Winter Palace I was interested but I was also not and unfortunately that sentiment continued throughout the entirety of the bookCatherine the Great s reign was filled to the brim with personal and political intrigue yet this book focused way too much on her reflections about past lovers I wanted to hear about the politics I also wanted the story to stop feeling so disjointed because the view of one of her attendants with a mole on his face could automatically and randomly throw her thoughts to the past The structure of this story did not work out and I really cannot envision people enjoying this book If you are interested in Catherine the Great and this author then I would recommend you read The Winter Palace which covers her arrival to the Russian court to the coup against her husband to become Empress of Russia If you want to read a book about the politics of her reign then I m sure you can find one as well and if you do find a good one then please let me know I received a copy of the book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review The expected publication date is March 25 2014 The Rogue King Inferno Rising #1 end of her life she had accomplished than virtually any.

Eva Stachniak Ç 2 Summary

Free download ß Empress of the Night A Novel of Catherine the Great 102 Other woman in history She built and grew the Romanov empire amassed a vast fortune of art and land and controlled an unruly and conniving court Now in a voice both indelible and intimate she reflects on the decisions that gained. From the moment I started listening to this book I could tell that it was something uniue It was probably a novel that I would have enjoyed in print than as an audiobook Listening too it I found my mind wandering and got lost in the disjointed storytelling Beginning with the scene of Catherine s dying moments Empress of the Night has a dreamlike uality of the empress life flashing before her eyes Instead of a comprehensive biography the reader is given random snippets that stand out to Catherine as her last breaths slip away Some scenes are told in exuisite detail while others are never mentioned Most of the focus is on Catherine s legendary love lifeThere is some beautiful prose in this novel but not enough of a distinct plot to keep my interest in this format
