This book is in the Davinci Code genre, but lacks the intrigue and intelligence of the Dan Brown novels. I really read these types of book because I love to understand the historical context and how it is viewed to a modern author. This one surrounds finding an heir to the Romanov throne from many who would claim the title. There are some interesting prophecies by Rasputin that are tied into the book as well as the mystery surrounding the two missing bodies in the Romanov grave in Yekaterinberg where the family was slaughtered.

Why to Read: To understand the history of the Romanov's and the view of a modern Tsar in Russia.

Why not to Read: Poor character development, forced relationships and convoluted action sequences.
