Tour + Review: Romanov by Samaire Provost

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?

4 stars

Romanov by Samaire Provost would normally not be my go to read on account that it features vampires, which are my least favorite paranormal story to read, but there was something about Romanov that just completely sucked me into the story and the world. This book is unlike any other vampire book that I have read to date.

I just loved the concept of Vampires in Russia because I haven't read many books set in Russia, and there is just something unique about vampires in Russia - maybe because it's different from the usual vampires book that I have read in the past.

I loved getting to know Alix, Lexei, and Anna, and get to see a story that focused more on the family aspect like Romanov did. I also liked the additional romantic aspect with Anna and Eric, and getting to see how their relationship developed as the story progressed.

I would highly recommend this book if you are a fan of vampire novels, and/or paranormal novels set in Russia.
