My name is Anastasia . . . 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 saving herself and her family are either to release the spell and deal with the consequences, or to enlist help from Zash, the handsome soldier who doesn't act like the average Bolshevik. Nastya has only dabbled in magic, but it doesn't frighten her half as much as her growing attraction to 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.

Praise for Romanov:

"I am obsessed with this book! A magical twist on history that will have Anastasia fans wishing for more. I loved every detail Brandes wrote. If you love magic and Imperial Russia, you want Romanov on your shelf!" -Evelyn Skye

"Romanov will cast a spell on readers and immerse them in a history anyone would long to be a part of." -Sasha Alsberg

"If you think you know the story behind Anastasia Romanov, think again! The perfect blend of history and fantasy, Romanov takes a deeper look at the days leading up to the family's tragedy, while also exploring the possibilities behind the mysteries that have long intrigued history buffs everywhere. Brandes weaves a brilliant and intricate saga of love, loss, and the power of forgiveness. Prepare to have your breath stolen by this gorgeous novel of brilliant prose and epic enchantment." -Sara Ella

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Brandes' accuracy in this retelling -- the majority of the characters and events are true -- and the bits of Russian sprinkled throughout are highlights. . . A promising retelling . . .' * Kirkus *
'This book completely hooked me from the start and did not disappoint with twists and turns and magic and romance that added new elements to the story we know.' * YA Books Central, 5/5 stars *
'Nastya's warm and empathetic personality shines throughout and you really feel her sense of desperation to save the ones she loves, going above and beyond and risking everything to do so.' * The Nerd Daily *
'The prose is enchanting and piquant, and paints rich, emotional images. The subject matter is thought-provoking; not just what happened to the royal family but what caused things to get to the point of revolution.' * All About Romance *
'If you enjoy re-imagined history, like The Ring and the Crown by Melissa de la Cruz, then you'll probably like Romanov.' * Story Sanctuary *
'. . . fans of the animated film Anastasia will enjoy this story, as will fans of R.L. LaFevers, Evelyn Skye, and Lucy Worsley's YA novels.' * School Library Journal *
