My Thoughts

 

First off…I'm not going to lie, I really missed the video's that book One had.  That being said I was totally blown away by book Two.  I love this intriguing an imaginative tale of Catherine the Great.  How much this follows the real and actual story of her life really doesn't matter to me.  I believe this is toted as being based in truth with embellishments along the way to fill in the blanks, or something like that…My only real complaint is the length of the book, I wanted it to be a little longer.  

 

Sex Factor:  This has some scenes that are graphic (but not too graphic), but, they are a part of the story and it wouldn't have had the impact on me that it did without them.
