A brief overall history of the Romanov Dynasty in Russia before the Revolution in 1917. The family history is outlined very well, and each family member and their relationships with one another is profiled. Parts are a little bland, but for an overview, I thought the story was conveyed well. ( )

Good book. Well written with a lot of information. Good addition to Romanov books for those who are into such and a good intro for those more casual readers. ( )

I remember this was a fast, appealing read. I don't know much about the Romanov's other than the common knowledge facts about their family tragedy during the revolution, so information is gain! I did think the book was well written and seemed to be well researched as well. ( )
