Entangled in a web of intrigue, Tatiana Gregorovich knows the only true ruler of Russia is Catherine I, a woman of strength and beauty. She ferries messages back and forth between Catherine and her generals, taking on the façade of a simpleton at court.
She fools everyone except Nicholas Wetherington, a thousand year old vampire at the Russian court. She is drawn to his smoldering, exotic looks unaware that her attraction could cost her life.
Tatiana is the daughter of a general. She is also believed to be a simpleton, but she is so much more than that. Nicholas came to Russia to attend the Empress’ birthday celebration and found himself falling in love.
Prince of Shadow by Tracy L Ranson is a tale of passion, love, political intrigue and revenge. Each page is filled with vivid descriptions, endearing good guys and vile evil.
My favorite characters of the book have to be the trio of Gabrielle, Siobhan and Alexandria. These three are powerful vampires and at the same time they are fiercely loyal to their “brother” Nicholas. They play supporting roles in this story but they are fantastic characters.
Seldom have I found such an expansive story that fits into a mere 176 pages, but Tracy Ranson has managed to take the turmoil of old Russia and combine it with passion and the paranormal to create a fabulous story.
