From the acclaimed author of Amelia Lost and The Lincolns comes a heartrending narrative nonfiction page-turner--and a perfect resource for meeting Common Core standards. When Russia's last tsar, Nicholas II, inherited the throne in 1894, he was unprepared to do so. With their four daughters (including Anastasia) and only son, a hemophiliac, Nicholas and his reclusive wife, Alexandra, buried their heads in the sand, living a life of opulence as World War I raged outside their door and political unrest grew into the Russian Revolution. Deftly maneuvering between the lives of the Romanovs and the plight of Russia's peasants and urban workers--and their eventual uprising--Fleming offers up a fascinating portrait, complete with inserts featuring period photographs and compelling primary-source material that brings it all to life.… (mer)

Candace Fleming's The Family Romanov: Murder, Rebellion & the Fall of Imperial Russia is a compelling narrative nonfiction novel that reads like a mystery. Beginning with the Russia’s last tsar, Nicholas II, inheriting the throne in 1894, Fleming unfolds the 'story' of the Russian Revolution.

Fleming skillfully switches between telling the flittering, opulent and out of touch story of the Russian aristocracy and the tsar side by side with the true story of Russia's suffering, struggling peasants who made up 85% of the population. Maps, graphs, and diagrams along with primary source documents are woven throughout, supporting and deepening student understanding.

This biography of Nicholas II and family tells the story of ruling Russia during a time of unrest and their mysterious murder. The story of the Romanovs is contrasted with primary sources from peasants and revolutionaries. Bibliography, Online Resources, Notes, Index.

The book provides history and information on how Imperial Russia fell the bolsheviks It gives great details on the Romanov family rose and fell from grace in the early twentieth century due to the failures of World War One as well as many impoverished Russians being angry at the Romanov Family for centuries.

The book is a great great graphic novel that would suit older students most likely in the middle school range due to tones and themes of violence and uncomfortable historical truths. ( )

Interesting and fast-moving account of the rise and fall of the Romanovs. The pace was perfect for my attention-span (anything longer than 8 disc is just to much for me on audio. Though I usually don't care for multiple narrators, the use of different voices for various Russian accounts of daily life worked really well. The main narrator got a bit melodramatic but was enjoyable to listen to. The author took a few too many liberties with the story. For example, no one would have known that Alexandra whispered to her daughters in English right before their execution; guards' accounts say they left the family alone at this point and no one who survived was in the room during that scene.

At first I felt as though I was just reading a history textbook and had to force myself to keep reading. Eventually the characters became more human and you realized how much the adults truly cared for their children creating even in extreme harsh circumstances a family friendly life. The beginning half also was about history I was aware of while the actual final year of their life was new info. The Rasputin years were given a fair treatment for both sides. The Russian people truly led harsh lives. ( )
