Summary:

Ekaterinburg, Russia: July 16, 1918. Ten months have passed since Nicholas II’s reign was cut short by revolutionaries. Tonight, the White Army advances on the town where the Tsar and his family are being held captive by the Bolsheviks. Nicholas dares to hope for salvation. Instead, the Romanovs are coldly and methodically executed.

Moscow: Present Day. Atlanta lawyer Miles Lord, fluent in Russian and well versed in the country’s history, is thrilled to be in Moscow on the eve of such a momentous event. After the fall of Communism and a succession of weak governments, the Russian people have voted to bring back the monarchy. The new tsar will be chosen from the distant relatives of Nicholas II by a specially appointed commission, and Miles’ job is to perform a background check on the Tsarist candidate favored by a powerful group of Western businessmen. But research quickly becomes the least of Miles’ concerns when he is nearly killed by gunmen on a city plaza.

Suddenly Miles is racing across continents, shadowed by nefarious henchmen. At first, his only question is why people are pursuing him. But after a strange conversation with a mysterious Russian, who steers Miles toward the writings of Rasputin, he becomes desperate to know more–most important, what really happened to the family of Russia’s last tsar?

His only companion is Akilina Petrov, a Russian circus performer sympathetic to his struggle, and his only guide is a cryptic message from Rasputin that implies that the bloody night of so long ago is not the last chapter in the Romanovs’ story . . . and that someone might even have survived the massacre. The prophecy’s implications are earth-shattering–not only for the future of the tsar and mother Russia, but also for Miles himself.

Steve Berry, national bestselling author of the phenomenal thriller The Amber Room, once again delves into rich historical fact to produce an explosive page-turner. In The Romanov Prophecy, the authentic and the speculative meld into a fascinating and exceptionally suspenseful work of fiction.

    An absolutely ridiculous book. The premise is unrealistic, the dialog is ludicrous...don't waste your time.

    I liked this book, Ive always liked the Russian history of the Tzars. This is mostly fictional with accurate history intertwined. The main character Lord Miles is supposed to be one of the smartest people alive, yet he lacks the most basic of common sense. Some of the most obvious things happen and you wanna scream yet he doesn't even clue into it. For a smart dude he gets captured like 15 times: not very smart. But i did like the way the book unraveled.

    VERY GOOD BOOK. LOTS OF ACTION. KEPT ME GOING UNTIL THE END.

  • Molly

    Good listen, though somewhat unbelievable. Needed to remind myself this is fiction - not history.

  • Lee Werley

    It started slow and I was not sure I would continue but then very quickly I became hooked. Nice mixture of history woven with fiction and easy to follow. I have already gone out and purchased a paper back by Steve Berry to read on a flight. I can't wait.

    An extremely interesting look into a history that Americans don't know much of. The story woven into the historical facts is captivating. I looked forward to my commutes while listening to this book.
