Product description


"Structurally complex and psychologically intense, "Empress of the Night" aims for Hilary Mantel. Stachniak's writing is distinct, however, especially in vivid descriptions of sensory details: perfume, sweat, and the click of heels on polished floors."
--"Quill & Quire

"Empress of the Night", which emerges through a series of vignettes that shift back and forth in time. A consistent strength of both books is Stachniak's unfailing attention to detail, whether describing the pain of childbirth or the manner of a courtier's behaviour and appearance."
--"National Post "

"Stachniak's latest novel is an intimate look at the private life of Catherine the Great, and readers of the genre who like lush and richly detailed historical fiction will likely approve."
--"Winnipeg Free Press"

"It's an amazing tale, all the more so for being true."
--"Calgary Herald"

"This fun novel of lovers, intrigue and malicious and manipulative nobility keeps readers entrhalled with every page, from Catherine's precarious beginning to her surprising ascension to the throne."
--"Virtuoso Life Magazine

Book Description

From the author of The Winter Palace, a novel that continues the story of Catherine the Great.
