My familiarity with the Russian revolution and the heated debates surrounding the truth behind the deaths of the Tsar and his family was minimal ( like some people my introduction was through the animated movie Anastasia). I got this book via NetGalley in exchange for an unbiased review and I brushed up my history before I sat down with it.
This tale had a few interesting twists which makes parts of it fun to read, but it turned out to be too big for me to assimilate all the details. I am sure a bigger history buff than me would relish the book but I bit off more than I could chew and ended up skipping a bit here and there in order to finish it.
It is a very detailed story presented with the intention of starting a debate on possibilities and was interestingly written.
