    Heavy But Immersive

    Talk about drama! I've always found Russian history to be extremely interesting and was looking forward to reading about its legacy, trying to see if it really was as chaotic and wild as everyone claimed. The answer? Yes, yes it is. This was perfect for someone like me who basically came in blind and didn't know how the lineage worked. It got a little confusing at times because there were so many similar or identical names, but the listing of the "cast" definitely helped. The level of detail was amazing and the author clearly has a love for this chapter of history. It's hard for me to pick a favourite era of this behemoth of a book, though I definitely took a lot of inspiration for Tsar Nicolas II's reign. It was amazing to watch the slow rise and downfall of the Romanov family, and is a piece of brutal history. It's constructed like a mammoth modern fantasy novel and I learned more than I could have ever hoped. I don't usually read modern history, but I am so glad I sat down and plowed through this one, even if it was brutal and unforgiving. A must read if you're looking for a biography in the format of an epic novel.
