“[An] absorbing book ... The fall of the Romanovs occupies the superb last pages of Cadbury's book ... Dynastic mergers, we may deduce from Deborah Cadbury's account, offer no defence against the whims of history. This catastrophe-laced slice of royal history offers a ripping read” – Miranda Seymour, Observer
