  • Lawhon captivates us...

    Imagine being a princess in a time of hatred and war. Imagine seeing your family being killed before your eyes, barely escaping yourself. Would you let the world know who you are? Would you constantly run in fear because everyone wants your fortune? Or would you have to prove what is rightfully yours? I was Anastasia is just this and more. A compelling story about the Russian princess who goes from a life of luxury, to the fall of an empire, back to trying to get what is rightfully hers. Ariel Lawhon captivates us with the historical knowledge of the events, while putting a personal spin on the matter. You learn a lot about the family and those they trust and learn to not trust. Anastasia learns the hard way who can really be trusted in your time of need. After countless fails at trying to prove who she is, will someone see Anna for who she really is? Anna stays within her confidants and hopes for the best while we learn the trials and tribulations that her family faced. Once a princess, always a princess no matter who or what stands in her way. The scars don’t lie but will they bring justice to Anna. This book is a solid four stars and teaches you a lot about the era and what happened in 1900’s Russia. **Review by Terren, Late Night Reviewer for Up All Night w/ Books**

  • Disappointed

    Disappointing and confusing. Many details left without an ending.

  • "Girl on the Train" Gone Bad.

    Where does one start? I believe the idea of how the book was going to play out was better in the Author's head than on paper. To anyone who is into historical World War readings, to pick The Romanovs as a topic is great bate. But that is as far as great can be used in this review. It's like the Author tried, unsuccessfully, to attempt a storyline like "Girl on the Train". The transitions into the past for the majority of the chapters were choppy, at best There were times I would even flip back a chapter or two, to skim and try to put it all together. The ending is dumb. Plain and simple. I believe even the publisher knew people were either going to love it or hate it- there would be no inbetween. I am glad I only borrowed this book from the library, instead of spending a dime on it. I would not recommend it to anyone.

  • I was Anastasia

    I wanted to read this most interesting story. I love historical novels. I've read about the Romanovs before and am saddened and interested by the story. I tried very hard to like this one but the author wore me down with her flip flopping time line. Other than that, she writes well and is very engaging. However, I had to abandon this book at the start of chapter 14, back to 1917, again! Ariel Lawhon ruined her book. She took someone's advice about technique, and it was not good advice.

    Thanks for your feedback!
