The Gathering Storm by Robin Bridges

Summary from Goodreads :
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?

The cover first captivated me =D then the summary looks so gorgeous yet intrigue too, about a Russian Duchess who is a necromancer. It sets at historical Rusia time and involve royal families, so I think it would be a gorgeous story too ;D

Have you read about The Gathering Storm? What do you think about it?

This one is sitting on my shelves though I've yet to read it. I've read some negative reviews on it so I'm a bit reluctant to start reading it !!
I so agree, I love the cover and the blurb sounds amazing !! Great pick ;)

I love the cover since winter is one of my favorite seasons.

It sounds fantastic because its historical Russia and it has fantasy elements mixed in. I knew Rasputin could not be the only person associated with Russia's royal family to have special abilities lol.

In all seriousness, it does sound really good and hopefully, it lives up to your expectations.
