    1. As an avid Romanov reader, I never liked Romanov fiction Many people have tried over and over to capture the Romanovs in fiction, but nobody really managed to capture the Romanovs The Romanovs were real people who had faults, eccentricities and virtues Rarely in fiction is the real history taken into consideration when writing Ms Miller has put years of research and dedication into the Romanovs and it shows Sarah Miller s book captures the Romanovs and I believe The Lost Crown has indeed set the [...]


    2. An excellent novel about the last days of the Romanov dynasty, narrated by the four doomed daughters of Nicholas and Alexandria There are no gimmicks here no love affairs between the girls and their guards, no survivors of the cellar massacre All we have is four young women with distinct personalities managing to keep their individuality, their dignity, their humanity, and their affection for their family while their world collapses.There s also an excellent author s note and a bibliography for [...]


    3. Find this and other reviews at flashlightcommentary.I attempted a fictional account of the Romanovs last days almost a year ago and I m still not over the experience I was and am so disgusted with The House of Special Purpose that I almost skipped out on Sarah Miller s The Lost Crown I seriously considered abandoning it at my library s hold desk when they informed me it was ready, but I hate making the librarians process requests for no reason so I schlepped my butt downtown Four hundred and for [...]


    4. And here I am, continuing on my Russian fiction journey and I am loving it I love how many books have or are coming out about Russia This is a historical fiction book told from the point of view of the four daughters of the last Tsar of Russia Olga, Tatiana, Maria, and Anastasia It s been awhile since I ve read any books or watched anything about the Romanovs and I had forgotten how long they had to wait to find out their destiny For some reason, I had it in my head that they were taken away fro [...]


    5. It is generally not easy to find quality historical fiction, and this goes tenfold for fiction about the last Russian imperial family This book is a definite exception to the rule Historically accurate down to minute details, and at the same time very well written, the story in The Lost Crown starts just before the revolution and covers the events that lead up to the assassination of the Russian imperial family Seen through the eyes of the four historically neglected daughters of the last Tsar O [...]


    6. It is impossible not to enjoy this book Because it takes place from all four Grand Duchess s points of views, you fall in love with every one of them Each one has a unique personality that is displayed throughout the story The whole book was wonderful, in depth, descriptive, and unique from anything else I have read on the Last Grand Duchesses However, my very favorite part of this book was the last four chapters, one from each of the girls You could tell that would be the last you would hear fr [...]


    7. Setting this aside for later at page 146, but not because this is bad On the contrary, the writing is lovely and so are the Romanov princesses At first I was wary of four sisters POVs, but I was impressed with Miller s ability to give distinct voices to each girl, while at the same time showing how similar they were, and how much they loved each other They are so sweet, and they try so hard to face the war, and the revolution, and imprisonment with dignity and grace What happens to them just suc [...]


    8. POTENTIAL SPOILERS So this has five stars, and for good reason This is probably one of the best, if not THE BEST, fictional portrayals of the Romanova sisters ever I learned so much from this book, and to this date is probably one of the few historical fiction books I ve learned a lot from about a topic I really like All four sisters take turns narrating various events from their lives from 1914 1918, none are left out and their personalities really shine in this book I was a bit miffed that Ana [...]


    9. The Lost Crown, a new novel by author Sarah Miller, is an excellent book of Romanov Russia The book is about the world famous Grand Duchess Anastasia Nicholaievna Romanov and her elder sisters, Olga, Tatiana and Maria In alternating chapters narrated by each of the Grand Duchesses, Ms Miller clearly brings alive the challenges and joys of being a daughter of the Tsar Each character is very well formed, and different in their own ways Olga the smart one, Tatiana the beautiful, Maria the sweet, an [...]


    10. Where we go next, we go together 4.5 out of 5 starsSetting Russia 1915 1918Coverly Love Yes I like the girl and the dress she is wearing, and the significance of the pearls on the cover every time one of the duchesses had a birthday, they would get a pearl to make a necklace Plot In this historical fiction based on fact and told from the viewpoints of all four Romanov sisters Olga, Tatiana, Maria, and Anastatia as the outbreak of WWI starts and the government of Russia is torn to shreds It follo [...]


    11. Meticulously and lovingly researched, it s hard not to respect the effort that went into The Lost Crown However, I felt that the effort fell a bit flat The first problem with The Lost Crown is implicit in its premise Because the reader knows that the Romanov family was murdered by Bolsheviks in July of 1918, it s hard to keep up much sense of suspense This is made worse by the family s captivity As many writing instructors will tell you, bored people are boring Therefore, a bored, scared family [...]


    12. Is thatHISTORICAL ACCURACY This is the definitive book on the last Romanov children It is interesting, historically accurate, and could hardly be described as childish Miller takes the wise idea to use all four sister to display their unity but also the secrets they keep from each other I don t think I ll ever forget how Tatiana says you won t tell the little pair It s so poignant and beautiful In addition, it showed how bad Anastasia is as a sole narrator the little pair being Anastasia and Mar [...]


    13. Chances are without I never would ve heard of or read this book I rarely read YA unless it s by an author I love, a subject I enjoy or it comes highly recommended The Lost Crown met two out of three requirements For once it was a fictionalized account of the last years of the Romanovs told by the four grand duchesses, not by just one daughter It also doesn t include forbidden romance or escapes from Impatiev House Instead the author does a tremendous job of giving each daughter her own voice and [...]


    14. I m one of those girls that has been in love with the story of the Romanovs since I saw the animated Anastasia movie years ago Ever since, I ve been researching it and trying to learn as much as I can about the family, particularly Anastasia, who just seems to be the most interesting to me.This did an amazing job at being factual It even gave me a better insight into how they spent their day to day lives and what their prisons were like That was super amazing Also, I loved being able to see thin [...]


    15. In fictional diary format, the 4 daughters of Tsar Nicholas II of Russia describe their lives before and after the Bolshevik Revolution Their world of glamour and privilege becomes increasingly narrow and poor as revolutionary forces try to decide what to do with the royal family after toppling the throne Author Miller presumes the reader has some background knowledge of the subject The girls references to their brother Aleksei s illnesses won t make sense if the reader doesn t know he had hemop [...]


    16. Don t be fooled, like I was, by this book cover, it looks like a light chick lit novel, but instead is it a well researched book on the last years of the Romanov sisters Olga, Tatiana, Maria and Anastasia OTMA for short , daughters of tsar Nicholas II The author chose a mock diary format and the novel starts innocently enough, describing the girls privileged life and careless attitude Soon enough the tone changes as the characters lives turn upside down during the events of WWI The royal family [...]


    17. I d been looking forward to this for ages, but only realised it was a YA when I started reading it Narrated by the Olga, Tatiana, Maria and Anastasia, it sets the tone perfectly for its target audience, and I know that my 14 year old self discovering the Romanovs for the first time would have loved it As it was, it all wore a bit thin and ended up being a DNF my teenage self would have rated it at least 4 stars


    18. It was a great book, but it was also sad I knew how it ended before I got to the end I guess thats the price you pay for reading historical fiction with historical characters Reveiw coming soon.


    19. The most historically accurate piece of fiction about the lives of the Romanov sisters I ve had the pleasure of reading.The writing is beautiful and the different voices have a way of being similar enough that you honestly believe the speakers are all close siblings but different enough not to get redundant I also give this a big thumbs up for following the girls story all the way to the end where they meet their tragic deaths this shouldn t be a spoiler, considering it s history and most people [...]


    20. this book had interesting characters and was very well researched Yet it was plotless, which was it s main fault Multiple perspective books can be hard to read, because it gets confusing who are you reading about Like all other books with multiple perspectives at least the ones that I ve read The Lost Crown has the name of the narrator at the beginning of each chapter I would often find myself flicking back a few pages to find who it was It was the nicknames that really threw me I was reading an [...]


    21. I have been fascinated by the doomed Romanov children for years I think it s because they took so many photos of themselves The photos make the imperial family in their pretty dresses and sailor suit with the occasional smile unusual in pictures of that era make them look approachable and real It makes their ending seem even horrible The Lost Crown covers the last four years of the imperial family s life It starts out at the beginning of World War I, when things are basically fine, with just an [...]


    22. Wowis book was very, very emotional It chronicles the last four years of the Romanov s lives, and I spent most the book dreading the ending that I knew was coming I absolutely fell in love with this book and the four sisters who narrated it As I got further and further into it, I felt like I was there, experiencing everything they went through the start of WWI, the months Olga and Tatiana spend as Red Cross nurses, the measles, and the house arrests in their palace, Tobolsk, and finally the Ipat [...]


    23. There is nothing terrible than when young people die Mr Mason of Downton Abbey The Lost Crown begins with the story of the third Romanov sister, Maria Nikolaevna, articulating her experience as her family leaves their home Miller brilliantly conveys the sadness and tragedy of OTMA s world when switching from their family s departure to their happy days prior to WWI The world of OTMA slipping quickly through their naive grasp is demonstrated next in Tatiana s chapter, followed by Anastasia and O [...]


    24. This book has blown me away on multiple fronts First, probably one of the best books I have read on Romonov Russia in a very long time The author is able to put the reader there with the Romanov daughters and give excellent insight into the heads of the young women and to take them from a place of young innocence to growing up very quickly during war Second, it is just well written The book sucked me in immediately Finally and most shockingly, THIS IS A YOUNG ADULT BOOK I have read adult literat [...]


    25. Pros The glossary is in the front of the book So you know to go back and look Con Anastasia s nickname Svybzik is not defined until the end of the book I finally had to look it up, it was driving me nuts.Pros Each sister gets her own chapter to tell the story.Cons It is practically impossible to tell the 4 sisters apart Their personalities come out in the story, but their dialog is completely undistinctive.Pros The book is well researched.Cons This research makes for a lot of plot exposition as [...]


    26. Okay, so I love things involving Russia My favorite part of Russian history is the Romanov s and the fall of Imperial Russia This book told the story of the years before and during the Romanov s captivity I really liked how it was not just from Anastasia or any of the girls POV It had chapters from each Grand Duchess This really lets you get to know the girls The one thing that I didn t like was how it spent so little time on before they are prisoners and it drags on sone during the time in capt [...]


    27. This fictional book about the last days of the Romanovs is told from the viewpoints of the 4 daughters of the czar I found it very fascinating how each daughter has such a distinct voice At times the story drags, but I think it s supposed to mimic the boredom mixed with fear and uncertainty the family faced while in captivity Great read


    28. This was wonderful Very well researched It is interesting being told from the point of the Czar daughters.


    29. Like so many other readers, I am fascinated by stories of doomed princesses Sarah Miller s new YA novel, The Lost Crown, about the last few years in the lives of the Romanovs of Russia, tells their story from the point of view of all four Grand Duchesses, the beautiful and privileged daughters of Czar Nicholas II Olga, Tatiana, Maria, and Anastasia, sometimes known as OTMA, each of them imbued with her own personality, narrate in alternating chapters how world war and revolution irrevocably chan [...]


    30. Olga, the bookish one Tatiana, the beauty Maria, the sweetheart Anastasia, the clown The daughters of Tsar Nicholas II have always lived in a gilded bubble of luxury But that bursts when a gunshot sparks World War I Now Papa has to leave the family behind to command the military Their palace is converted to a hospital and the two oldest sisters work as nurses Meanwhile, Mama turns to a holy man called Grigori Rasputin to cope with their brother Aleksei s illness.Then Russia is shaken by somethin [...]
