Una dinastia immortale. Un oscuro segreto. Quale mistero si nasconde nel palazzo dello zar?Un grande thriller di Dora Levy MossanenUn viaggio mistico nella corte degli zar pieno di sorprese e colpi di scenaDarja ha 104 anni ed è ancora una donna bellissima e dal fascino misterioso. Vive in un antico e fatiscente palazzo e intorno a lei svolazza sempre un nugolo di farfalle. Nessuno sa con certezza chi sia in realtà: l’unico indizio relativo al suo passato è un preziosissimo ciondolo, un uovo Fabergé tempestato di diamanti e pietre preziose da cui non si separa mai. Ha dei poteri soprannaturali e racconta di essere stata la tutrice del piccolo Aleksej, l’erede al trono dei Romanov. È passato quasi un secolo da quando la Rivoluzione ha annegato nel sangue il fasto e la ricchezza degli zar: i membri della famiglia reale sono stati uccisi, il loro nome dannato, i simboli del potere distrutti, eppure pare che Aleksej sia scampato all’eccidio... Darja non lo ha mai dimenticato e quando riceve una convocazione urgente da parte dell’Associazione della nobiltà russa le sue speranze riprendono corpo... Il sangue nero dei Romanov è una storia densa di magia e di avventura, amore e speranza, in cui rivive l’atmosfera lussureggiante di una corte opulenta e ricca di meraviglie, ma destinata a un inevitabile tramonto.La rivoluzione ha spazzato via dalla storia la corte dei Romanov. Ma forse Aleksej è ancora vivo, e solo Darja può trovarlo.Dora Levy Mossanennata in Israele e cresciuta in Iran, è fuggita negli Stati Uniti all’inizio della Rivoluzione islamica. È autrice di tre romanzi tradotti in diverse lingue. Il sangue nero dei Romanov è il suo primo libro tradotto in Italia.

When Peter's parents are killed, he is sent to an orphanage in Warsaw, Poland. But Peter is Volksdeutscher-of German blood. With his blond hair and blue eyes, he looks just like the boy on the Hitler Youth poster. The Nazis decide he is racially valuable. Indeed, a prominent German family is pleased to adopt such a fine Aryan specimen into their household. But despite his new "family," Peter feels like a foreigner-an ausländer-and he is forming his own ideas about what he sees and what he's told. He doesn't want to be a Nazi. So he takes a risk-the most dangerous one he could possibly choose in 1942 Berlin. . . . Paul Dowswell weaves meticulous research into a thrilling narrative, exposing a different angle of the horrors of Nazi Germany.
