I do not often read thrillers- but since this one was one of my lifelong favorite topics the Romanovs I had to give it a try. WOW This is the very best book ever on the Romonov's I loved the fact that it is so much like Dr. Zhivago.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

So many twists- turns and questions. Being intigued by Anastasia this book answered some questions and gave me new things to think about. This is more than a thriller - it is a love story- a human story. I love this book

Wow! Incredible! My Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars. Disclaimers:
My Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars.
Disclaimers: I received an arc of this book from the publisher, Howard Books (a division of Simon and Schuster) in exchange for my honest opinion.
My Overall Thoughts/Impressions: Wow! Just wow! That's all I really need to say about this book. I adored everything about this book. It is easily one of my favorites of the year.
I feel like the synopsis accurately describes maybe 18% of the novel if not less. In the first thirty pages, Dr. Pavlov does discover two bodies perfectly preserved in permafrost that leads to her discovery of the Romanov conspiracy; however, most of the novel is told as if the characters from 1918 were telling the story themselves.
The first thirty pages were great, but not spectacular. The rest of the novel was mind-blowing.
I absolutely adored the story that Meade created because it was gripping, compelling, and addicting. I didn't just devour this book, the novel consumed me. I couldn't think of anything else. I read for hours and then realized I hadn't eaten all day. However, I couldn't stop reading.
I loved all of the characters in this novel. I won't take the time to list them. But they all seemed so realistic. They didn't all get the happy ending I wanted them to have either, which made Meade's novel more realistic and also more heart-breaking.
I could gush about this book for hours. But I'm just going to say I adored this book. Don't just read this one, buy this one. You will absolutely adore it. I love mystery, thriller, action books and this book ranks among the best I've ever read.
In Summary: I can't find the words to adequately express how truly incredible this book is. This book consumed me. I couldn't think of anything else. Definitely worth buying.
The Wrap-up: This book was one that I was sad to finish. It was so incredible that I couldn't bear the thought of parting with it. I will definitely be stalking...I mean keeping tabs on...this author. In case you can't tell, I LOVE LOVE LOVED this novel. Go buy it right now!
