Fleming's text is firmly based in history, but it reads like a thriller, as we follow the Romanovs.

    Feb 16,  · I found this book to be more a mix of history and entertainment, than hard history, but I don't think it really pretends to be anything else and I did enjoy it. As other reviewers have pointed out, there is much more attention paid to the later Romanovs, but this must be because of the lack of material available on the earlier Romanovs/5(). Oct 01,  · Overall, I really think that this book is a good read. It is mostly interesting and presents new evidence with notes to the sources. As far as I am aware, this is the most recent book published about the Romanovs, which makes it up to date, even with the burial of the Romanov remains.5/5(5).
