Publisher's Summary

From the author of Fawkes comes a magical take on the story of Anastasia Romanov.

The history books say I died. They don’t know the half of it. 

Anastasia “Nastya” Romanov was given a single mission: to smuggle an ancient spell into her suitcase on her way to exile in Siberia. It might be her family’s only salvation. But the leader of the Bolshevik army is after them...and he’s hunted Romanov before. 

Nastya’s only chances of survival are to either release the spell, and deal with the consequences, or enlist help from Zash, the handsome soldier who doesn’t act like the average Bolshevik. Nastya’s never dabbled in magic before, but it doesn’t frighten her as much as her growing attraction for Zash. She likes him. She thinks he might even like her.... 

That is, until she’s on one side of a firing squad...and he’s on the other.

Well Read Audiobook

I listened to the audiobook version of the book, and it was really well done. I'm not an expert on what a Russian accent should sound like, but I thought the narrator did a good job of using a hint of a Russian accent without making it sound too faked or forced or overwhelming.

Love this book!

I was a huge fan of Fawkes, so I wasn't sure how I'd feel about Romanov. Oh my goodness, this book had me on the edge of my seat! I laughed with the characters. I cried with the characters. I was completely engrossed in the story.
I love how Nadine has a talent to weave a heart-wrenching story with encouraging messages. I can't wait to see what she'll write next!
