    Any ANASTASIA fans in the room? I have been DYING to share this news with everyone! ROMANOV will be another historical fantasy standalone. And now that I'm squealing, I'm at risk of revealing spoilers (BECAUSE I'M THAT EXCITED.) For those who want a teensy more info about the book's...

    ***Advance Review Copy generously provided through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. The Romanov family fascinates people for a century. Well, their end does. And I was curious what Nadine Brandes would do with the story. And mainly how she's going to end the story, th...

    like many girls born in the 90s who begged their parents to take them to see the groundbreaking film ?anastasia? in theatres, i too have fostered a lifelong obsession with all things romanov. i would never claim to be an expert on russian history or the imperial family, but i have ...

    This was definitely the type of Anastasia retelling I have been waiting for!!! I already knew I'd love this book before I picked it up, I mean pfft have u seen Fawkes which is a magical Guy Fawkes retelling that exploded into my life and I am still thinking about a year later?!? Exactl...

    I liked Romanov. Really, I did. But. The setting was? ho-hum. What should be descriptions of places were instead inconsequential, uninspired snippets of text. Sure, there was the whole house arrest shebang, so it'd be unfair of me to fault the setting for being as claustrophobic...

    I don't understand why none of y'all are reading this book at this very moment. Honestly just drop whatever you're reading because I assure you it's not half as good as this book. I'm sure most of you are familiar with the *children* version of Anastasia. I don't really care for it be...

    Many thanks to Thomas Nelson Books for sending me a copy in exchange for an honest review No one can out shout a revolution If the Romanov family lived in the Harry Potter world, it would be this book. Inspiring, beautiful and captivating, I could not have loved this book more....

    I liked Romanov. Really, I did. But. The setting was? ho-hum. What should be descriptions of places were instead inconsequential, uninspired snippets of text. Sure, there was the whole house arrest shebang, so it'd be unfair of me to fault the setting for being as claustrophobic...

    I don't understand why none of y'all are reading this book at this very moment. Honestly just drop whatever you're reading because I assure you it's not half as good as this book. I'm sure most of you are familiar with the *children* version of Anastasia. I don't really care for it be...

    ROMANOV is a raw, real story, full of pain and hurt. But it's beautiful. It's full of love and light and courage. Courage to hope beyond the hopeless. It's the kind of story you don't just walk away from unchanged. I was blown away by the characters. Every single person who appears ...
