What the Critics Say

"Suspenseful and detailed, the novel captures a dramatic moment in history and will sear you with sorrow for this doomed daughter of the last tsar." (People)
"Erickson...never lets harsh fact impede a good story....Although the particulars of the Romanovs' fall are familiar from other treatments, including Erickson's biography of Alexandra, the suspense never flags....More entertainment than history, but all the better for it." (Kirkus Reviews)

    Story
    "A touch too childish for the adult reader. Slow."

    A slow start. A dragging tale. Alot of fantasy. Really? Frued and a Russian Grand Duchess who goes and comes as she pleases. Not Erickson's best work.

    "A good listen"

    I thought this was a very good book. I have listened to/read and liked other books by the author. Since most of the books about the Romanov daughters seem to be about Anastasia, this has a different viewpoint. Although this is fiction, her descriptions of the era and family ring true. The reader was new to me, but did an excellent job.

    "Enjoyed It"

    The writing was excellent. It truly brought the world of Czarist Russia to life. The only issue I had with it was that, despite the fact that I knew it was a novel, I couldn't keep the actual fate of the family, including Tatiana, out of my mind. It somehow took the edge off my enjoyment.
