L'autore

Nadine Brandes once spent four days as a sea cook in the name of book research. She is the author of Fawkes, Romanov, and the award-winning Out of Time Series. Her inner fangirl perks up at the mention of soul-talk, Quidditch, bookstagram, and Oreos. When she's not busy writing novels about bold living, she's adventuring through Middle Earth or taste-testing a new chai. Nadine, her Auror husband, and their Halfling son are building a Tiny House on wheels. Current mission: paint the world in shalom.

Recensione

'Brandes' accuracy in this retelling -- the majority of the characters and events are true -- and the bits of Russian sprinkled throughout are highlights. . . A promising retelling . . .' -- Kirkus

'This book completely hooked me from the start and did not disappoint with twists and turns and magic and romance that added new elements to the story we know.' -- YA Books Central, 5/5 stars

'Nastya's warm and empathetic personality shines throughout and you really feel her sense of desperation to save the ones she loves, going above and beyond and risking everything to do so.' -- The Nerd Daily

'The prose is enchanting and piquant, and paints rich, emotional images. The subject matter is thought-provoking; not just what happened to the royal family but what caused things to get to the point of revolution.' -- All About Romance

'If you enjoy re-imagined history, like The Ring and the Crown by Melissa de la Cruz, then you'll probably like Romanov.' -- Story Sanctuary

'. . . fans of the animated film Anastasia will enjoy this story, as will fans of R.L. LaFevers, Evelyn Skye, and Lucy Worsley's YA novels.' -- School Library Journal
--Questo testo si riferisce alla hardcover edizione.

1,0 su 5 stelle Goodbye History!
Di Morrigan93 il 28 luglio 2019
I had to give a single star to this book not so much for the writing that is pleasant, but for the story that is absolutely absurd with very few correct historical references

For anyone who doesn't know, Romanov by Nadine Brandes is a retelling of Anastasia, that is, for the most part historically accurate. As someone who loves both History and fairy-tales this concept was enough for me to buy it and dig in. What makes this different from the real narrative of the Romanov family, is that the author goes beyond reality and explores what would have happened if Anastasia had survived her family's execution. This retelling of Anastasia also includes fantasy elements and the authors own magic touch.

This book was extremely well written, in a way that was easy to follow and to understand. The incorporation of Russian traditions was something I really enjoyed especially given the authors own twist on the Matryoshka (Russian nesting) dolls. It was definitely one of my favourite parts of the books. I also enjoyed the accuracy of the events. The places, the people and for the most part the events exist in reality and would be known to anyone who has studied Russian History in the past, particularly the Russian revolution. The last 50 pages or so of the book are where events diverged from reality and we see the authors idea of how events would have proceeded if Anastasia had survived.

Despite all of this, I was unable to honestly give this book anything beyond 3 stars and here's why; Firstly, almost the entirety of the book was an account of Romanov history albeit with some creative licence taken. This was problematic because its hard to be excited about a book that was largely just regurgitating facts, no matter how unique a style it's presented in. Moreover, the portrayal of the Romanovs was historically inaccurate and fantasised . Many historians consider the last Tsar a poor leader due to the actions of his government. His refusal to entertain constitutional reform and his decision to commit the Russian army to the Russo-Japanese war in which they faced great losses contributed to his failed rule. Secondly, a big selling point of this book was the magical elements which were added to create a sense of fantasy. SPOILER AHEAD: but the addition of 'spell crafters' and 'spell ink' failed to meet the mark for me. The set-up was great, but the execution was lacking. I'm still not entirely sure why the Bolsheviks hated them so much or how this began beyond the brief mention of Rasputin, the background here was missing. I was also left unsure about why spell Ink was such a commodity and so hard to make/procure.

Lastly, the part I was most excited to read about was the author's take on what may have happened if Anastasia survived, for me personally this was the major selling point of the book and also the most lacking aspect. Perhaps if the author had focused on this part more than the Romanov history it would have made for a more original and interesting read.

That being said while I did not find this book un-putdownable, it was still gripping enough to keep me hooked until the ending which managed to surprise me. This was a buddy read for me and one thing we all agreed on, was that this was one book in which a sad or tragic ending would have worked out really well. However, The author did her own thing which was unexpectedly and pleasantly surprising.

SPOLIER ALERT: Historically speaking the revolutionaries won. lol
