Required Reading

Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. I do not collect information on my readers. If cookies or other tracking stuff is used on my blogs it is due to BLOGGER not ME. Apparently the European Union's new rules state I need to inform you if cookies are being use. If they are it isn't byu me, consider yourself INFORMED.
Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't, whether I got it free or NOT!

Books I have authored.

Many times I receive books for FREE to give them an honest review. I do not get paid to give a good or bad review. Spotlights are promotional and should be regarded as advertising for the book spotlighted. Regardless of where or how I got a book, my review will be as honest as I can make it.

The Romanov Prophecy by Steve Berry

This was an intriguing book.  Russia as we know it today but slightly skewed.  The Russian people have set up a commission to decide who will be brought back as Tsar.  The decades of Communist rule have failed and the hope is that a return to an autocratic monarch will inspire the people and save Russia.

The author makes liberal use of the prophecies of Rasputin.  In the afterword he notes that they may have been made or fabricated by his (Rasputin's) daughter.   An American attorney is identified as the Raven and a Russian circus performer is identified as the Eagle.  These two are prophesied to bring the Romanov's back to the throne.

The author puts a wealth of action and a fair number of history lessons in the book.   The plot is intricate but not confusing.   The book provides an answer to the mystery of the murder of the Romanov's at the beginning of the Bolshevik revolution, or at least the author's fictional answer.

I recommend the book.


This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
