Helloooo! Happy New Year! I know, I haven’t been consistent but guess what, that is soon about to change. I have quite some reviews and new stuff lined up for you guys. Soo stay tuned. Today I’m reviewing an eBook I received from Netgalley, in exchange for a honest review.
Title: The Russian Cage

Series: Gunnie Rose, #3
Genres: Thriller, Dark fantasy, Fantasy Fiction, Historical fantasy, Paranormal Fantasy Pages: 304

Summary: Picking up right where A Longer Fall left off, this thrilling third instalment follows Lizbeth Rose as she takes on one of her most dangerous missions yet: rescuing her estranged partner, Prince Eli, from the Holy Russian Empire. Once in San Diego, Lizbeth is going to have to rely upon her sister Felicia, and her growing Grigori powers to navigate her way through this strange new world of royalty and deception in order to get Eli freed from jail where he’s being held for murder.
Russian Cage continues to ramp up the momentum with more of everything Harris’ readers adore her for with romance, intrigue, and a deep dive into the mysterious Holy Russian Empire.
This was quite an interesting read. It follows the story of Rose as she travels to rescue her boyfriend Eli who has been illegally arrested in the Russian Empire.
I requested this from Netgalley mainly because of the cover and name. It’s actually the third instalment in the series. It can be read as a standalone though it’s much better to read from the beginning so as not to get confused.
I love Rose’s character. She’s very competent in what she does and we see that very well in this book. Travelling to the Russian Empire to save Eli is no joke and she has to watch her back for assassins. Usually in colts and black attires, here we see her in dresses! How strange 😂
Eli is involved in a lot of confusing, deadly politics which involve the Tsar, but that doesn’t stop her. She also spends time with her sister who is quite strong in her own way, and Félix whom at first sort of hates her but later on begins to appreciate her.
As if all these aren’t enough, Rose has to win over Eli’s mother.
I ship Rose and Eli so much ❤ they’re a perfect couple, who have been through so much together from the beginning. In this book there is a lot of violence, guns and illegal activities. Btw towards the end, there’s actually a wedding which is so cute, quite some lovey-dovey from Rose and Eli which melted my heart 😍 Everyone got the happily ever after they deserved ✨
If you love novel about royalty mixed with action and quite a bit of suspense, then this is the book for you. You might check it out here
