#Review Tsarina by @JacksonPearce #Giveaway @RazorbillBooks @NightOwlReviews

TsarinaNatalya 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 not in the right hands.

Biography

J. Nelle Patrick lives in Atlanta, Georgia, with a slightly cross-eyed cat and a lot of secondhand furniture. She graduated from the University of Georgia with a degree in English and a minor in philosophy. She auditioned for the circus once but didn't make it. She is also the author of a series of retold fairytales.








This novel dares you to ask what you think about one thing: Is it your fault where and into what situations you are born into? The truth of the fact is that we have no control over that. Yet,  aren't we to blame if we simply accept things the way they are without trying to change them? 

The author says in her note at the end: The Russian Revolution, truth be told, needs little to no fictionalization to be a fascinating time period, full of beauty and horror and wonder. That Tsarina is met to be a novel not a text book.  Well I have to say that this book both intreated me and fascinated me.  The blend of both fact and fiction was just amazingly blended well.  In a breathtaking read.  

I was so absorbed with this book and the setting of this book.  The author takes to you Russia and now I really want to visit there before I die.  I felt so wholly absorbed into the place and time as I read Tsarina.  Readers will love the atmosphere and feel of this book.   This one has it all.  Romance and Natalya's quest to save Russia.

The only issue I did have with this one is that the ending felt rushed.

Unfortunately, I haven't read any of her books yet!! I really want to read Tsarina though!! :)

I haven't read any of them but I definitely want to read this one!

I've seen a couple of reviews here and there while on people's blog, but I never read the blurb until now. It sounds pretty good though.
