Romanov Blog Tour


Romanov
Samaire Provost
Publication date: January 24th 2018
Genres: New Adult, Urban Fantasy
In an abandoned warehouse in Manhattan, two enemies battle to the death, while outside, a malevolent entity watches and waits and plots, eager for blood. On an island in the heart of Seattle, an immortal princess struggles to lead a normal life just as a flood of terrifying creatures starts to pour in through a portal that should not be there. A young man meets a classmate while walking home from the college library, and embarks on the most dangerous adventure he’s ever known – will he survive? A deranged madman hunts the girl he’s lusted after for a century, in a relentless pursuit for vengeance. A prehistoric, mythical beast jealously guards a primeval land, which is leaking into present-day Seattle. A sweet, forbidden passion blossoms between two lovers who steal moments whenever they can, while unbeknownst to them, they’re hunted by a deadly creature.
A royal family threatened at its weakest – yet lethal in its own right – is stalked by an ancient evil that will not rest until they are utterly destroyed: a nightmare incarnate that has waited millions of years for revenge threatens the very existence of the young lovers and their family.
Will they prevail?
MY THOUGHTS: I was initially drawn to this book because of the cover and to be honest, it had a Gothic feel to it which I love.  What I found was a book that while not exactly Gothic, did mix history with present-day times and a tale which thrilled to the end.  I'm been somewhat hesitant with vampire books the past few years and I have to admit I tend to like my vampires on the vicious side, but "Romanov" has a nice mixture of vampires, dragons and magic.  This is a fun read and those who like a little bit of romance with their vampires would probably enjoy picking this one up.

MY RATING: 3 PAWS

  1. That is a very complex blurb, with a lot of characters I am curious how the author brings together. Interesting!

    1. Yes the blurb is quite complex. I think it could represent the story a tad bit better because I could see why it might turn some people off.

  4. This definitely sounds like a lighter vampire tale. I'm with you, I lean more towards darker stories, but sometimes a break is nice😊

  6. It sounds pretty good to me and that cover is gorgeous but I'm sad it's not a gothic. I'm in the mood for a good one.

  12. Oo I like that cover and gothic feel sounds right up my alley. Honestly, I'd have to pass because of the dragons with it though. :/ I'm glad you thought this was a fun read and great review!
