"The Last Romanov"
by Dora Levy Mossanen

Release Date: April 3, 2012

Summary from

For almost a century, Imperial Russia has captivated the imagination- the ruthless execution of the royal family, the disputed survival of the heir: it's a cinematic chaos that the masterful Dora Levy Mossanen unravels for her readers. Taking readers deep into tarnished grandeur, The Last Romanov follows Darya, a wise old beauty whose time spent with the Imperial family has haunted her entire life. When the murderous events unfold, Darya is plagued by the prophecy made by the Empress's advisor, Rasputin. She must find the missing Tsarevich Alexis Romanov and restore the monarchy or risk losing her own life.

  3. Hi Carrie!
    I was about to enter and saw the rules about being eighteen. Nooo! Haha, but it does sound like a lovely book. Romanov Russia is truly a great premise for historical fiction. With the mystery of Anastasia: it's any historical fiction writer's dream: a true historical mystery in a rich and magical, and thrilling, era in Russia.

    Luck to all the entrants :)

  4. Not entering, just stopping by to return the visit and say that you're awesome!

    Ooh, Romanovs. I'm in a serious Russian reading mood lately, because I've been going through Tolstoy. Maybe it's time to expand my horizons!

  5. I've had my eye on this book for a while. I seem to be on a Russian kick - I've bought two books about Catherine the Great and can't seem to get enough. Please count me in for the giveaway and thanks for hosting it!

  20. I've always been fascinated with the Anastasia story. I use to love the romantic notion that she was still alive.

  21. The story of the Romanovs is one that has always captivated me (along with the disappearance of Amelia Earhart and the lost colony of Roanoke). This time period in Russian history is also very interesting and underrepresented in literature.
