Publisher's Summary

The winter winds blow cold in Russia. On the heels of triumph comes tragedy. 

After a decisive victory, Tsar Ivan falls ill, followed by his beloved wife. As the Tsarina's condition worsens, Inga glimpses the sadistic creature Ivan was before he married. As the Tsar's madness grows, he lashes out, and all of Russia feels the sting. 

As Inga fears the future, Taras looks to the past, searching for the elusive answers to his mother’s death. Mystery piles upon mystery, and everyone refuses to talk. Taras wonders if he’ll ever truly understand the event that has plagued him since childhood. The Kremlin darkens, and the countryside fills with blood. 

Inga and Taras cling to one another for survival. Inga finds herself at an epic crossroads, with her heart beckoning her one way and her fear tugging her in another. 

Find out what Inga chooses in the second installment of this medieval historical romance series.

heart wrenching

the terror and pain in this book is gut clenching. the description of the tzar morning gave me chills, and then when he turns down a dark path in his grief some of the things that were done made my stomach turn over. there's some tuff truths in this book but they have a major impact on the lives of the characters, so I see why the author says at the end they're necessary. do not read if you can't handle violence, and don't listen with the special effects if you can only barely handle violence. I'm still trying to find the words to describe the way this story binds you to the fate of the characters and it's been a couple of days since I have finished. the pain and fear of the lower classes echoes in the story and then the witch Hunt of the upper class guarantees the bloody history of Russia will haunt you. all this while just praying the 2 couples survive.
