Description

Russia, 1916. Nina Ivanovna's world is in turmoil. Her only hope is to travel to St Petersburg, to escape the past and find a future. Stefan Kolodin is a medical student - young and idealistic, he wants change for Russia and its people. Amidst the chaos of a city in revolt, their lives collide. And a stormy relationship develops . . . full of passion and politics. But soon Nina is drawn in to the glamorous, lavish lives of the Russian royal family - where she begins to fall under the spell of their mysterious monk, Grigory Rasputin. The ruby-studded dagger he carries - beautiful and deadly - could save her and Stefan from a cursed life . . . or condemn them to it. `An outstanding writer - simply superb' Independentshow more
