Summary of the Book:

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 saving herself and her family 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 has only dabbled in magic, but it doesn’t frighten her half as much as her growing attraction to 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.

My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review.  I think that I have read a few tales based on the Romanov and see the movies. Even knowing all that I was not prepared for all the twists and turns that happen in here. She has to convince Zash who is a soldier to help her. There were times that just made my heart and pulse race. I am going to have to read more by this author. I always enjoy it.

My Rating of the Book: 4 Stars
