Publisher's Summary

In 1917, Nicholas II, Tsar of Russia, was executed by revolutionaries. Now, in response to the collapse of the country's economy, the people have voted to instate a new Tsar, one who will be chosen from the descendents of Nicholas II. But a powerful group of Western businessmen want to make sure he is a candidate they can control, and hire African-American lawyer Miles Lord, with his knowledge of Russian language and history, to check the background of their chosen man. Miles is thrilled with his assignment...until he becomes the target of an assassination attempt and must run for his life, guided by a cryptic phrase penned by Rasputin, and a bizarre prophecy that the Tsar will return to the throne and that Miles himself will see to it.

    "Great Book"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This was a great book, captivating and compelling storyline with quite a gripping conclusion.


    What about Paul Michael’s performance did you like?

    Narrated the Russian accent quite well

    "Great historic novel"
    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The description of the murder of the royal family was like being in the room.

    "A Fast Paced Good Read"

    Kept me in its grip from chapter to chapter. Lots of good history and references to current Russia.

    "From Russia With Love?"

    Well written, good premise but climax is typical escape from certain death situation after the hero doesn't figure out who the villin is.

    "Return of the Russian royalty?"

    As usual,a good yarn by Mr.Berry, well read. The plot is the usual windy and wide ranging, with the usual visits Berry sends us on around the globe. Big characters with a reasonable amount of depth, and a twisty ending. I enjoyed this, and, if you enjoy Berry's style, you will too.

    "pure fiction"

    While listening this book I have to always remind myself that this is just a fiction and not a history novel. A lot of twisted facts from Russian history and Russian real life made this reading thorny for me. But overall, it is a decent fiction story.

    "A good Listen"

    But not a great listen. Quite an interesting and well researched plot but some of the dialoge is trite and lacks quality "story telling". In fairness, however, not every author can be John Gresham.

    Never-the-less I have bought, but not yet read, another Berry book.

    "! on reseach; 3 on writing."

    This is the second, and last, novel by this author Iwill read. His facts are very informative and largely unknown.

    The problem is his story telling is mediocre. His Reader is even worse ( multiple Russians who all sound the same) as the story progresses.

    "bathroom read"

    "...and the innocense of beasts will guard and lead the way..." Well, not much to that. Seems more and more writers are writing hoping for a movie deal. This one should probably end up on UPN. It's just not much of a story. Oh well, back to comics of my newspaper.

    "good adventure story if you can suspend belief"

    the narration is very good. the story is fun and easy to follow. the downside to this book is that one has to believe that a)russia was better off under a tsar [check with, among others, the jewish community regarding this!], 2) russia could return to rule under a tsar in this modern age, and, 3) a brilliant lawyer wouldn't be able to see a corrupt conspiracy going on right under his nose. and that is just in the first couple of chapters. there are other parts of the narrative that are weak but i'd have to give away the story to go into them. i enjoyed listening to this on the way in to work, but didn't think it completely riveting nor really well written; it was too predictable to be either. and there were a number of parts and comments that i had to not examine too closely or else just ignore in order not to get annoyed with the sloppiness of the writing and stereotyping.
