There is fear on Varavara's face. Her eyes dart sideways. Her left cheek twitches. She shakes her head, claps her hand over her mouth. "Shh," she whispers."It's just your pain speaking. It's not you. Shh."

  1. Is this book historical fiction about Catherine the Great of Russia? I always want to learn something when I read a book, or at least a little.

  15. This does sound interesting. I haven't read anything by this author, although I have seen her name all over Facebook! I'll have to try one of her books!

  18. I am intrigued - and have now put the first in this series on my reading list. My 5-year-old recently discovered the cartoon version of Anastasia so we've been, very basically, talking about "real" princesses and using the movie as an example. So I can argue this is research to support my daughter's interest, right?

  19. WOW what a list of books! I keep wanting to join up because I've seen several posts go by and it looks like such a great way to see what others are reading.

    ReplyDelete
  20. That's a good opening!

    ReplyDelete
  21. What a great teaser! Now I want to know what she said and why she's so afraid!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Love historical fiction for travel. It's my favourite genre for that purpose. I'm not even sure why as the rest of the time I read other types of fiction.

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
