Book Tour: Queen of Tomorrow by Sherry D. Ficklin

Title: Queen of Tomorrow {Stolen Empire #2}
Release Date: 14th of July, 2015
Publisher: Clean Teen Publishing
Pages: 280
Synopsis: Sophie—now Catherine, Grand Duchess of Russia—had a tough first year at Imperial Court. Married at sixteen to Grand Duke Peter, heir to the throne, and sett
led in their own palace, things are finally looking up. As a new day dawns, she thinks only of securing her future, and the future of their country, during one of the greatest political upheavals of her time. Fighting desperately against forces trying to depose the Empress Elizabeth and put the young Prince Ivan on her throne, Sophie soon finds herself in the middle of a war brewing between her beloved
Prussia, and her new empire. But even as she navigates the fragile polit
ical landscape, she
quickly realizes that she has only begun to discover the tangled web of dece
it and infidelity
woven over the lavish court of Oranienbaum Palace.

When a strange and delicate alliance forms between the young couple, she glimpses a future of happiness, only to see it lost in a moment at the hands of those who still seek to end her life—and prevent her reign. Out of favor with the empress and running out of options, Sophie will have to sacrifice her own innocence on the altar of Russia if she is to save the nation, and herself. To survive, she will have to do the unthinkable, betray those closest to her and become something greater and more dangerous than she ever imagined she could be… a queen.

Not all that long ago, I signed up for a book blitz with ‘Mostly YA Bound Book Tours’ for L.A. Hendricks’ ‘Half Breed Queen’ which is the first instalment in the Skatia Narratives Series. I only ever sign up for book tours and book blitzes when I find novels that I would pick up, if I saw them in a bookshelf, and when I read the synopsis for this book, I fell in love!

Devastating tragedy puts 14-year-old high school freshman Marla Owens, on a fast-paced journey of survival, revival and coming of age. Driven by a force she can’t begin to understand and a burning need to find out the truth, she heads toward her mother’s home in North Dakota. She soon learns more about herself and her family than she could have ever imagined — her mother was royal heir to the powerful Skatian throne! And now the Skatian people need her to protect their world from those who wish to conquer it.

In a classic tale of good versus evil, set on Earth and beyond, a young girl fights to survive to become a young woman—and the reluctant queen of Skatia. Who can she trust? Will she be able to control her own immense abilities and justified anger to do what’s right? One thing’s for sure: Marla’s not in Texas anymore!
