This is a historical novel about a minor character who gets involved with a very major family,the Romanov's. A story with moody heft that teaches as much as it touches you.

This was a interesting twist on the typical 'what might have happened' to the Tsar & his family. However, I got a bit bored by the middle of the book....

I didn't know what to expect when I started this one. I found a great historical novel, one where you're not sure where the fact ends and the fiction begins.

I really enjoyed this historical fiction. Alexander manages to tell the most amazing story using a lot of hard data. I was haunted after reading his account of the last days of the last Royal family of Russia. It is a wonderful mystery, a compelling family drama, a political thriller and a treasure hunt all rolled up into one fabulous read!

What really happen in "The House of Special Purpose" the night the tzar of Russia and his family were killed? No one really knows. The Kitchen Boy tells the story of Misha, an old man who before his death tells his granddaughter of how he worked as a kitchen boy in the house the Romanovs stayed in for their final days. But is Misha really who he says he is, or was? The ending seemed a little rushed but still it is a very good story.
