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. 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

I have always been interested in the Romanov's after reading "Nicholas and Alexandra" back in the 70's. This book gives another perspective to the story, which is fascinating in and of itself. I found it to be extremely interesting and engaging with a wonderful twist at the end.

Wow! Incredible! 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! Love, Danica Page

The Russian Revolution was certainly a bloody affair. Fear and chaos abounded. It turned an entire nation upside down. And in the center of it all was the brutal assignation of the Tsar and his family. A murder surrounded in a mystery, which became legendary. Did the daughter of the Russian royal family survive? Glenn Meades’ latest novel, The Romanov Conspiracy hits the ground running with a gritty and harrowing account of an attempted rescue of the Tsar and his family during the final days of the Russian revolution. In the center of the story are Uri Andrev and Leonid Yakov. Friends since childhood, they find themselves on opposite sides of the revolution. Bitterness and anger rooted in betrayal and fueled by events spinning wildly out of control cause both men to seek to undo the other. But even war can’t totally unravel the cords of deep friendship Uri and Leonid had woven over a lifetime. Paramount to the plot is the Romanov family – the Tsar, his wife and children – including the willful Anastasia, held captive by Lenin’s men and soon to be murdered. But help is coming in the form of a headstrong Irish gunner runner, Lydia Ryan, and Joe Boyle, a man of mystery who has been on more than one death defying mission. Together with Uri Andrev they infiltrate Russia, making their way through the chaotic blood-soaked countryside, hoping to free the imprisoned Tsar and his family before it’s too late. Meades' novel is taut, historically rich, and replete with complex characters. It will quickly draw you into the horrifying upheaval that was the Russian Revolution and leave you breathless. However, as an author known well to the Christian market, Meade does promote, albeit subtlety, the worldview that in the midst of heartache and turmoil it’s okay to “love the one you’re with”. In The Romanov Conspiracy two of the characters find solace in the arms of someone other than their spouse. The underlying feeling being that God understands. That, for me, made a stellar novel less great. A courtesy copy of The Romanov Conspiracy received from Simon and Schuster in exchange for an honest review.
