    Captivating

    From the time I heard this book was coming out I just knew I had to read it. I will tell you that I lived Anastasia's life while reading this book and that's in part to the author's creative writing style. I found myself caught up in all of the emotional turmoil and upheaval that the entire family went through and I cried with the losses that occurred within this storyline. The blending of historical facts with fantasy kept me captivated until I turned the very last page. I quite honestly did not want the book to end and will reread this book. I really wonder how Anastasia's life would have turned out if she hadn't been murdered and this author gave me a glimpse of what could have been. {I requested a review copy when I signed up and was selected for the book tour. I made no guarantee of a favorable review and the opinions contained herein are unbiased and my own.}

    Focus on Forgiveness

    Two things I love are the history of the Romanovs and YA fantasy books. So imagine how excited I was when I learned an author had combined the two! While it wasn't what I expected, I was still very happy with it and fell in love with the characters. The pacing was a little slow, since the focus was mainly on the relationship between the Romanovs and their guards during the last days of their captivity. It lended well to the emotional weight of the story, but the real action occurred around the halfway point. Still, Anastasia, aka Nastya, was just so adorable all the time, had so much heart, forgiveness, and humour that the reader can't help but love her. I also adored Alexei for his courage and determination. As for Zash... I find him to be a good character, very complex and tormented, but it took me a long time to accept his redemption arc. It was a challenge just due to the gravity of the Romanov massacre. The heart of the series is the relationships between the characters. It was a different way of telling a familiar story, and it painted other characters in different lights. I truly enjoyed the heart and historical accuracies, given how light it was on the actual magic. It surprised me, made me smile, and filled my heart with warmth. Recommended for history and fantasy lovers everywhere!
