I came across this book and wondered whether anyone has read it, and, if so, is it good?

I just read a little of the text and found so many errors just in the first sentence! Since when is the Catherine Palace at Tsarskoe Selo also known as the Winter Palace?

I think that GrandDuchessAndrea is right.  Most of us not only could but would do a better job of creating fiction over a weekend!

Looks like the author read Massie and decided to write fiction.  Quote by quote by quote.
