Scent of Butterflies
Scent of Butterflies - Dora Levy Mossanen I really enjoyed the first bit, but this one was just too heavy on the language right out of the gate, which was a bummer; I was really looking forward to reading it, and Soraya's voice was fresh and interesting.

Thanks to Sourcebooks for the chance to read the ARC.

The Last Romanov
The Last Romanov - Dora Levy Mossanen Darya Borodina Spiridova is 104 years old, and this may be the last Romanov claimant she gets to meet and check out. Believing herself responsible for the massacre of the royal family, she’s been safeguarding relics and treasures belonging to the Romanovs so she can return them – and hopefully earn her redemption.The story flows between the current-day events and those in the past – including her parents’ fateful meeting, and her rise to the role of healer to the Empress Alexandra Feodorovna, and her eventual transfer to caretaker to the heir, Alexei Nicolaevich.Born with hemophilia, the young boy’s life is constantly in danger, especially when the court has a bubble of silence around his ailment. After all, a weak heir to the throne would just invite all kinds of trouble, wouldn’t it? Darya eventually invites the monk Rasputin to court to attempt to heal Alexei, not knowing that the invitation would set into motion a chain of events even she couldn’t foresee.Dora Levy Mossanen’s The Last Romanov is a vividly told story, and her descriptions evoke the lushness of the Russian court – along with all the misconceptions and misperceptions of its royal family. It is an engrossing read, but it does drags at times.drey’s rating: Pick it up!

The Last Romanov
The Last Romanov - Dora Levy Mossanen Three stars, a lot of dead weight filler pages, unfulfilled and superfluous supernatural elements and a eye-catching, lovely cover pretty much make up the basis for The Last Romanov. I am highly disappointed in this historical fiction jaunt into one of the most interesting times in Russian history. There was a lot of potential left unfulfilled from this book - it could be a much tighter, engrossing read, but as is, the ARC leaves much to be desired. Full review to follow.
