[Anzeige/Rezension] Romanov - Nadine Brandes

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Thomas Nelson through NetGalley. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.

Anastasia “Nastya” Romanov has to smuggle a spell out of the palace on their way to exile. And she has help, Zash, a Soldier of the Bolshevik army. Nastya not only is frightened of the magic she is trying to hide but also her feelings for Zash. She should not like him, he is a puppet of the enemy, and he will point his gun at her and her loved ones.

In reality this was a heartbreaking story! The book did show quiet many of those horrible moments the family had to live through. I really enjoyed the idea of Anastasia 'escape' the way the author painted it!
Stories too far away from the truth make it hard to like, but the author did her research well.


It is a YA Love story with some bloody pages. If you are aware of this and the fact that magic is a thing in this story, you will have a great time with Nastya.


The only issue I had with this story, is that I missed the explanation for the spells. I get that it is magic and we have a certain imagination of that. But either I missed it, or it was not explained, how these spells work. How do they look? How do they work? That was all up to my imagination. Which is fine in a way, but I would have liked to know more about this whole spellthing.


Knowing the history of the Romanovs well was not bad for the reading experience. The book takes another turn, obviously. 

Also I liked the writing style of the Author. I literally flew through the pages.


Historical based YA story with some magic and blood! I enjoyed it very much!
