Historical Fiction with a Twist: The Gathering Storm

The Gathering STorm by Robin Bridges

The Gathering Storm by Robin Bridges

In 1888 St. Petersburg, Katerina Alexandrovna attempts to hide her dark secret. Ever since she was a child, she has been able to raise the dead. Those learning of her secret will either shun her or attempt to use her for their own evil purposes. Katerina must also deal with a vampire prince who wishes to marry her for mysterious reasons and her growing affection for the tsar's middle son.

I am not a huge fan of historical fiction, but the added paranormal elements made this an exciting read.  The author combines vampires, faeries, and other creatures with Russian history, and it inspired me to look up certain characters to see if they really existed.
