Review: Tsarina by: J. Nelle Patrick

Title: Tsarina
Author: J. Nelle Patrick

Pages: 328
Format: Hardcover

Natalya knows a secret. 

A magical Faberge egg glows within the walls of Russia's Winter Palace.
It holds a power rooted in the land and stolen from the mystics.
A power that promises a life of love for her and Alexei Romanov.
Power, that, in the right hands, can save her way of life.

But it's in the wrong hands.

My Thoughts: 

This book follows what happened in Russia with the fall of the Romanov's.  Early in it we see Alexei and the Faberge egg.  The egg was imbued with all Rasputin's powers and fellow mystics alive.  

When Bolshevik revolution happens Natalya and her friend end up running and wind up kidnapped and made to do things they would rather not do.  Natalya travels all over to get the egg back as she is now protected by the powers of the egg.

This book was all over it was a great re-telling of the story and a spin on what happened during that time frame and added mystical aspects add to it.  Once I began I found I couldn't put it down and was eager to see how they would end the story.  Definitely worth checking out to see how it all played out!
