Title: New Romanov Novel: "Triumph of a Tsar"
Post by: tanolic on January 13, 2018, 11:12:40 AM
Hello everyone,

I am a long-time reader of this discussion board, and have been interested in Russian history for years. My first novel on the Romanovs was just published this past week. It is called "Triumph of a Tsar." This novel is a work of alternate history where the Communist Revolution of 1917 is averted, and Alexei becomes tsar. His reign begins in 1920, when Nicholas dies suddenly, and Alexei becomes the youngest tsar in nearly four centuries. The Great War is over, but Russia is still suffering from the devastation and poverty that it brought. Communists such as Lenin, Stalin and Trotsky view the political situation as ripe for revolution, but they realize that the popular Alexei stands in their way. To make matters worse, Alexeiís hemophilia constantly returns to haunt him. With his life in danger from internal threats, Alexei must also navigate the external threats of fascism and Adolph Hitler. Slowly, Hitlerís menace increases throughout Europe until he tries to kill Alexei. Only then does Alexei realize that another World War is the only way to stop his German enemy.

"Triumph of a Tsar" is available on Amazon. Thank you for your interest.

Just as an update to this, I will be holding a book launch party to celebrate the publishing of "Triumph of a Tsar," in the Washington, D.C. area. The party will be held at The Writer's Center in downtown Bethesda, Maryland, one metro stop outside of Washington, D.C. Anyone who is interested is welcome to attend.
