Rasputin\'s Legacy starts with the Germans progressively advancing through the Soviet Union. With the oncoming battles a new mission has been created for both parties. For the Russians, Pobrutin is supposed to find out more information from a woman in an insane asylum who supposedly had a child with the famous Grigori Rasputin. On the German front Himmler has sent two of his most successful men to the front to find a young boy. They are not sure what the name of the boy is or who he is they just know that he is something special. Giorgi Lazarov, a Jew, is a very special boy who can see the future. He knows that occasionally things happen around him and he notices things before they happen however he doesn\'t know he is special. After having an extraordinary powerful vision Giorgi runs to where he feels safe. While in the woods the Germans move in and take over his hometown of Zhitomir. The book continues to track Giorgi and what happens to him over the next year. Giorgi continues to learn and harness his powers while being escorted by two German officers, Major Brock and Major Junger as well as a witch, Madam Blavatsky. Giorgi Lazarov seems quiet throughout the book however he possesses wonderful perception that he begins to start using to influence those around him. Rasputin\'s Legacy is a gripping novel that will capture every reader right from the beginning. Carnes has created a world that the reader will continually want to travel through. He has done thorough research for this wonderful book and that only adds to fascinating plot. This book is full of nonstop action and adventure. The details of the characters wrapped with the historical setting and plot are absolutely wonderful. All of these components truly set the stage for a captivating and thought provoking story line. Rasputin\'s Legacy was a wonderful suspenseful book to read. I constantly found myself saying \"Just One More Chapter......\"show more
