Review: Duchess? Are you all right? Duchess?

I blinked slowly at her, ignoring the tears rolling down my cheeks.

Masha, what have I done?

This book is called The Morning Star written by Robin Bridges. The main characters in this book are Katarina, also known as Katiya, George, maman, Alix, tsar, lich tsar, and danilo. This book is fiction, and it is the third book of a series called The Katerina Trilogy.

Katerina is 18 years old; she has too many choices, decisions, and problems going on in her life. One of the decisions she has to make is whether she could either marry George, the tsar's son, or keep studying medicine. She could only pick one. She has been studying medicine for a very long time and doesn't want to give up. However, at the same time, she has loved George for a very long time. Katerina picks medicine over George, she doesn't know if she made the right choice. Katerina has doesn't know what to do! Later on, other troubles come along the way. Danilo, the crown prince, kidnaps her because the lich tsar possesses him and is using his body to talk to Katerina. What is Katerina going to do next? Is she going to get George back? Will George save her?

Robin Bridges' amazing writing makes me want to keep reading. I couldn't stop reading. Some of my favorite parts of the story were when she added a bit of ancient Egyptian history and Egyptian setting in the story. Every time I had to stop reading, I would want to continue because of the great description. I think girls would like reading this book more than boys because there is a bit of romance, and the main character is a girl. Overall, this book is great, and I think people over the age of 12 might like it because of the complexity of the words. It's an amazing book, and the plot is really interesting. Every time I finished a chapter, I would want to keep reading and never stop. My eyes were glued to the book! I think any person who reads this book will love it!
