About the Author

Sherry is a full time writer from Colorado where she lives with her husband, four kids, two dogs, and a fluctuating number of chickens and house guests. A former military brat, she loves to travel, eat exotic food, and meet new people. She can often be found browsing her local bookstore with a large white hot chocolate in one hand and a towering stack of books in the other. That is, unless she's on deadline at which time she, like the Loch Ness monster, is often only seen in blurry photographs.

Author Sherry D. Ficklin concludes her Stolen Empire trilogy about the young life of Russian Empress Catherine the Great. Like the two previous books, the pace of Queen of Always runs steady from once incident to the next. While I know what became of Catherine, Ficklin injected enough mystery in the book to make me doubt the outcome. Peter’s viciousness knows no bounds, and made me loathe him even more. Elizavetta, his mistress, somehow becomes even more venomous with each book, and I was happy how both she and Peter’s storylines were resolved. Aside from the dangers Catherine faced at home and abroad, she also continued to find some happiness. What I loved about this book the most was how Catherine isn’t shown as perfect, but a woman forced by position and birth into making imperfect choices. Despite all of the trouble she faced, Catherine maintained her faith and conducted herself with class. I also enjoyed how Catherine was fierce, strong, and independent, and how those traits were strengths instead of weaknesses. During a time when the world was ruled mostly by men, Catherine was able to show how capable a woman in power could be, and that she could bring prosperity to her country. Queen of Always was the perfect conclusion to the Stolen Empire trilogy. It was hard to put down, and an exciting read.
