The Sisters of the Crescent EmpressThe Sisters of the Crescent Empress by Leena Likitalo is the second book in The Waning Moon Duology, & it continues the incredible historical fantasy twist on what happened to the Romanov family in the early 1900s. The Sisters immediately throws the reader back into the eerie & terrifying setting where the first book, The Five Daughters of the Moon, finished off & leaves the reader on the edge of their seat until the very final page. This book was an incredible way to end this story & I absolutely adored it!

I was sent an early copy of this book by the author as an early birthday present.

This book contains off-page murder.
