Waiting on Wednesday (81)

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine, and it is a way to show off the books you can't wait to be released!!

This week I chose:

"The Gathering Storm"

by Robin Bridges

Delacorte Books for Young Readers

Release Date: Jan 10, 2012

The following description is from goodreads.com:

St. Petersburg, Russia,
1888. As she attends a whirl of glittering balls, royal debutante
Katerina Alexandrovna, Duchess of Oldenburg, tries to hide a dark
secret: she can raise the dead. No one knows. Not her family. Not the
girls at her finishing school. Not the tsar or anyone in her
aristocratic circle. Katerina considers her talent a curse, not a gift.
But when she uses her special skill to protect a member of the Imperial
Family, she finds herself caught in a web of intrigue. An evil
presence is growing within Europe's royal bloodlines—and those aligned
with the darkness threaten to topple the tsar. Suddenly Katerina's
strength as a necromancer attracts attention from unwelcome sources . . .
including two young men—George Alexandrovich, the tsar's standoffish
middle son, who needs Katerina's help to safeguard Russia, even if he's
repelled by her secret, and the dashing Prince Danilo, heir to the
throne of Montenegro, to whom Katerina feels inexplicably drawn.

The time has come for Katerina to embrace her power, but which side will she choose—and to whom will she give her heart?

What a great concept! I hardly ever see books in this setting, and the fact that it is historical plus paranormal makes me really want to read it!

What are you waiting for this week???
