The Prince of the Soviets

Availability: Ready to download

Nina Kupina, a Russian political exile, is abducted by the Soviet agents in China who bring her to Moscow. She takes refuge at the house of Oscar Reich, an American millionaire who, unaccountably, has a privilege to run a private enterprise in the USSR. Nina suspects that Mr. Reich is not who he pretends to be, and there is some shady deal between him and the Bolsheviks. Bu Nina Kupina, a Russian political exile, is abducted by the Soviet agents in China who bring her to Moscow. She takes refuge at the house of Oscar Reich, an American millionaire who, unaccountably, has a privilege to run a private enterprise in the USSR. Nina suspects that Mr. Reich is not who he pretends to be, and there is some shady deal between him and the Bolsheviks. But she accepts his advances, knowing that he is the only person able to help her return home to her husband, Klim, who is living in Shanghai. Little does she know that Klim is already in Russia looking for her. To make inquiries about Nina’s whereabouts, he takes a position in the United Press as a correspondent in Moscow. His search leads him not to the reunion with his wife but to his imminent arrest as a spy. And Oscar Reich is ready to do everything to make sure Klim gets into the trap set by the OGPU (the predecessor of the KGB). The Prince of the Soviets is an epic tale of courageous people who dared to challenge one of the cruelest regimes in history. Tragic and uplifting, it gives readers not only a bigger picture that explains the rise of the communist regime but also a rare glimpse into the inner world of the Soviet people—those who ruled and those who were destined to submit, the producers of propaganda and its victims.

    Yet again Baryakina takes us on a wild ride as we continue to follow the lives of Klim and Nina and many other characters. Baryakina is skilled at making all of her characters come to life on the page, and the numerous characters and plots always keep me reading, wondering what will happen next.

    So basically, Bulgakov meets James Patterson, and both are stunned. Come for the swift, thriller-like plot. Stay for the fascinating Russian-scary-stuff history lesson. Or was it the other way around? Freshly translated, and now available to the American reader.

    Elvira Baryakina created another masterpiece. I could not wait to read another book of Russian Treasures series yet I delayed to read it because this is the last one so far. The two first books were great, but this one is even better (if it is possible)! I am glad to see that Elvira Baryakina created another masterpiece. This time the main characters Nina and Klim “back to USSR”. Prepare yourself for the dive into that dangerous era. The danger is real not only for the main characters.

The readers will be in danger of not to be able to put the book away until they read the last word. Good luck to you to try to stop reading before that time. OK. We have read The Prince of the Soviets. Now what? The only hope for the readers – there will be another book! I have read on the author’s Facebook page that E. Baryakina is working on it right now. Thanks to the author for the wonderful time I spent with her characters.

    A gripping story A bitter sweet romance in a setting of desperate life in post-revolution Russia. Reminds me of the novel and film Dr Zivago. Can't say I truly enjoyed this book, but I couldn't put it down! Very well plotted and written. A gripping story A bitter sweet romance in a setting of desperate life in post-revolution Russia.

    W "Burzliwej epoce" mamy dokładnie wszystko, to co powinien mieć dobry romans historyczny, czyli ciekawy wątek miłosny połączony z faktami. U Baryakiny bez trudu można odnaleźć te dwie rzeczy. Poza uczuciowymi perypetiami głównych bohaterów, niezwykle skrupulatnie pokazuje kolejne ważne i przełomowe wydarzenia rozgrywające się w omawianym okresie, zachowując przy tym zgodność z prawdą historyczną.

U Baryakiny bez trudu można odnaleźć te dwie rzeczy. Poza uczuciowymi perypetiami głównych bohaterów, niezwykle skrupulatnie pokazuje kolejne ważne i przełomowe wydarzenia rozgrywające się w omawianym okresie, zachowując przy tym zgodność z prawdą historyczną. Nic nie upiększa i nie próbuje niczego tłumaczyć, pokazując zarówno życie w tamtym czasie, jak i sposób myślenia ludzi znajdującym się po różnych stronach barykady, takim jakim rzeczywiście było. Dzięki czemu otrzymujemy nie tylko niezwykle intrygujący romans, ale również bardzo ciekawą powieść historyczną opowiadającą o wielu rzeczach nie znanych przeciętnemu czytelnikowi nie związanemu na co dzień z historią. To co dodatkowo dodaje siły napędowej trylogii są emocje i umiejętność posługiwania się nimi, grając na najczulszych strunach odbiorcy. Na przykład Nina, która wielokrotnie mnie irytowała, aby dosłownie za moment szczerze jej współczuł. Dochodzi do tego pewnego rodzaju nostalgia, mnóstwo mądrych i pełnych życiowych prawd sentencji wywołujących chwilę zadumy. To jedna z tych książek, które pozostają na długo w pamięci. Dla wielbicieli historii, pozycja obowiązkowa.
