If her time at court has taught Catherine anything, it's that there is no room for weakness in Imperial Russia. With the empress' health failing and rumors of a change in the line of succession, her place in the royal line is once more in jeopardy. Tormented by her sadistic husband and his venomous mistress, Catherine must once more walk the fine line between pleasure and politics - between scandal and survival.
When her young son becomes the target of those rebelling against Peter's reign, Catherine will have to rise up to protect herself, her child, and her nation from his unstable and potentially catastrophic rule. This means putting herself at odds with the most dangerous man she's ever known, trusting those who once proved to be her enemies, and turning a nation against its sovereign. In the ultimate battle for the crown, new alliances will be forged, loyalties will be tested, and blood will be shed.

The History of it and the telling of Sophia (Aka Catherine the Greats) life before fame
That Catherine got the ending that she needed
No I haven't but I will now she was really good reading this book
Yes I did I was crying for Catherine and hating Peter for what he did to her
I got this audio for a honest review from Sherry. This was a very good and emotional book based on some true facts and spun into a great story about one of Russia's greats Queens Catherine the Great. This book was well written
It was a good story, but the third installment felt unfinished or not as thought out? And the narration quality was low, I adore the narrator and her beautiful voice but the quality of the reading had echoes and odd background noises and many inconsistencies, all I can guess is something was rushed through for this last part of Catherine's story. But I will forever be a fan of Catherine the Great all thanks to this clever fictional rendition of her life.
The background noise is terrible on this audiobook. You can hear talking and other random noises throughout the performance. In addition, the narrator just does not speak clearly at times. If it weren't for such a fascinating story, I would have deleted it without finishing.
