I thought that this book gave a new spin on an old conspiracy. I have always been fascinated by the Princess Anastasia and I loved how the author brought so much life to her story. Though nearly nothing in known about the Romanov family, the author uses this to her advantage by spinning tales of love and mystery along the few pieces of truth we know about what happen to the royal family. Though she lives with much sorrow, Anastasia is able to have a full life in the short span of 17 years she experiences love, heartache, and betrayal through out the book. She may be doomed from the start of but I still root for her and beg for her to escape when she has the chance, but no such luck she is a girl of great integrity and is loyal to her family. I love how she was given a chance to have a different story told and a little part of me hopes that she at least got to achieve half of the things that were written about her.
