Of books about the oeuvre of Romanovs, there are apparently no end. Shocked with their astrological wealth, the authors choose between the two volatile extremes: they either sensationalize the Romanov's opulent lifestyle and their failures in reign, or tabulate their family ties with the Western European royalty.

Dedicated to the last Russian Tsar's 145th birthday (May 18), current effort underlines the humanistic attributes of the last Russian Imperial family, their fascinating grace, compassion, faith, and elegance.

The account set in this book, is not a history of the Imperial Russia, nor it is the narrative of the Romanov era of 304 years. It is the reflection of the authors' prejudice and admiration about a royal family, their Russia, and their regalia.

With its child-friendly illustrations (from the Romanov estates, lavish Orthodox Icons, to Fabergé Imperial Eggs) this book accommodates the junior reader as well, aiming to introduce the American youth the whereabouts of the Imperial Russia.

While the drama of the Romanovs extends over a canvas far too vast for any historian, politician, royalist, republican, or impartial writer to paint in its entirely, one thing is clear enough: the bloody massacre of the entire family in 1918, was not about replacing the Imperial Russia with the Soviet Russia. It was foremostly about the eradication of the noble genes; it was about the evil genocide of the grace and elegance.

It is hard to believe that if raised in his childhood in beauty and appealing conditions, the 36-year old Yurovsky would then agree to conduct such a remorseless murder of the royal children. While the majority of people believe that "the beauty will not safe the world," we still have the choice to notice the beauty and to appreciate it.

Molière suggests: "All the ills of mankind, all the tragic misfortunes that fill the history books, all the political blunders, all the failures of the great leaders have arisen merely from a lack of skill at dancing." It is worth to add that all the ills of mankind, all the tragic misfortunes, political blunders, and all the arrogance arise from the lack of sense in grace. We trust you will enjoy your voyage through this book. Richard & Naira
