The Age of Ice Summary
The Empress Anna Ioannovna has issued her latest eccentric order: construct a palace out of ice blocks. Inside its walls her slaves build a wedding chamber, a canopy bed on a dais, heavy drapes cascading to the floor - all made of ice. Sealed inside are a disgraced nobleman and a deformed female jester. On the empress's command - for her entertainment - these two are to be married, the relationship consummated inside this frozen prison. In the morning, guards enter to find them half-dead. Nine months later, two boys are born
