The bestselling tale of Romanov intrigue from the author of The Kitchen Boy

Book groups and historical fiction buffs have made Robert Alexander's two previous novels word-of-mouth favorites and national bestsellers. Set against a backdrop of Imperial Russia's twilight, The Romanov Bride has the same enduring appeal. The Grand Duchess Elisavyeta's story begins like a fairy tale-a German princess renowned for her beauty and kind heart marries the Grand Duke Sergei of Russia and enters the Romanov's lavish court. Her husband, however, rules his wife as he does Moscow-with a cold, hard fist. And, after a peaceful demonstration becomes a bloodbath, the fires of the revolution link Elisavyeta's destiny to that of Pavel-a young Bolshevik-forever.

I really like the chapters written in the first voice of the "Romanov Bride", but was a bit bored with the chapters in the first voice of the revolutionary.

Yet once again an amazing book by Robert Alexander. The plot and details of the book (historical and fictional events a like) are beyond what one could imagine alone.

I must admit I expected more from this author. The story although interesting left me expecting a little more from him after reading other books by the same author..
