From the author of Fawkes comes a magical take on the story of Anastasia Romanov.

I am obsessed with this book! A magical twist on history that will have Anastasia fans wishing for more. -Evelyn Skye 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 either to release the spell and deal with the consequences, or to 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.

I loved every detail Brandes wrote. If you love magic and Imperial Russia, you want Romanov on your shelf! -Evelyn Skye Romanov will cast a spell on readers and immerse them in a history anyone would long to be a part of. -Sasha Alsberg If you think you know the story behind Anastasia Romanov, think again! The perfect blend of history and fantasy, Romanov takes a deeper look at the days leading up to the family's tragedy, while also exploring the possibilities behind the mysteries that have long intrigued history buffs everywhere. Brandes weaves a brilliant and intricate saga of love, loss, and the power of forgiveness. Prepare to have your breath stolen by this gorgeous novel of brilliant prose and epic enchantment. -Sara Ella

Nadine Brandes once spent four days as a sea cook in the name of book research. She is the author of Fawkes, Romanov, and the award-winning Out of Time Series. Her inner fangirl perks up at the mention of soul-talk, Quidditch, bookstagram, and Oreos. When she's not busy writing novels about bold living, she's adventuring through Middle Earth or taste-testing a new chai. Nadine, her Auror husband, and their Halfling son are building a Tiny House on wheels. Current mission: paint the world in shalom.

'If you enjoy re-imagined history, like The Ring and the Crown by Melissa de la Cruz, then you'll probably like ROMANOV.' * Story Sanctuary * 'The prose is enchanting and piquant, and paints rich, emotional images. The subject matter is thought-provoking; not just what happened to the royal family but what caused things to get to the point of revolution.' * All About Romance * 'This book completely hooked me from the start and did not disappoint with twists and turns and magic and romance that added new elements to the story we know.' * YA Books Central, 5/5 stars * 'Brandes' accuracy in this retelling -- the majority of the characters and events are true -- and the bits of Russian sprinkled throughout are highlights. . . A promising retelling . . .' * Kirkus *
