If you’ve been hanging around this blog for any amount of time, you know I absolutely LOVE every book Nadine Brandes has ever written. She’s an amazing writer and the sweetest person ever. (Seriously, check out her social media sites and hang out even five minutes and you’ll see what I mean).
And today she is revealing the cover for her next book Romanov, which is a YA standalone historical fantasy/retelling of the Russian history surrounding Anastasia. I’m so, so, so excited for this book! I grew up loving the Anastasia movie and loving The Angel on the Square by Gloria Whelan, which is a middle grade book set during the Russian revolution. I can’t wait to read Nadine’s historical fantasy version of the story!
About the Book
The history books say I died.
They don’t know the half of it.
Anastasia “Nastya” Romanov was given a single mission: to smuggle an ancient spell into her suitcase on her way to exile in Siberia. It might be her family’s only salvation. But the leader of the Bolshevik army is after them . . . and he’s hunted Romanov before.
Nastya’s only chances of survival are to either release the spell, and deal with the consequences, or enlist help from Zash, the handsome soldier who doesn’t act like the average Bolshevik. Nastya’s never dabbled in magic before, but it doesn’t frighten her as much as her growing attraction for Zash. She likes him. She thinks he might even like her . . .
That is, until she’s on one side of a firing squad . . . and he’s on the other.
Doesn’t the blurb just send tingles down your spine? Or perhaps give you the sudden urge to preorder the book right this minute? (If you wish to preorder, you can find the links to all the various places to buy the book here).
The book releases May 7, 2019. Why is next May so far away?????
Anyway, I’ve kept you waiting long enough.
Eeep!!!! It’s so beautiful!!!
Are you excited for this book? Have you read any other of the books by Nadine Brandes?
