    "I liked this. Nothing truly extraordinary or anything, but it's a fun little story. I definitely enjoyed it more than Dan Brown's books or other similar stories. Felt more real and plausible, and the writing was just better. Not nearly as corny as typical."

    "The Romanov Conspiracy is a thriller novel about the Romanov family, within which some quite far fetched stories are told. I found myself disinterested as the elements in the story are not believable, I don't want to spoil the story for anyone, but this novel was not enjoyable because it was not acceptable as even resembling reality. A great novel is one that seems to be based on some level of reality, knowing what I know about the overthrow of the Russian Czar, I could not enjoy the book and as far as treasure hunting, the story leaves much to be desired."

    "The Goonies is one of the best novels about treasure hunting. My son read it over and over and couldn't get tired of it. It's one of those books that live in one's mind even when they grow old. "

    "There's something about treasure hunting stories that i've always adored, the way it mixes thriller with action and the unpredictability of it all. The Alexandria Link is a great story all around and a captivating one to say the least. Cotton Malone makes for a very interesting protagonist with enough depth to hook me in and really feel invested. This book does not disappoint and i'd highly suggest it."

    "Steve Berry and The Romanov Prophecy took me by surprise. Steve Berry is a newly unearthed treasure and The Romanov Prophecy is a masterpiece of historical fiction. I lived in Russia and the Soviet Union for two decades and I love Russian history and culture. This is a truly beautiful country populated by beautiful people. I was first attracted by the historical handling of the death of the Romanov dynasty and was then totally captivated by the developing thriller that ensued. Impressive historical research followed by totally entertaining characterisation and thriller plot development. What's not to love? An extremely highly recommended book for those of us who love Russian history, Russian culture, historical fiction, or international thrillers. "
