The first thing that comes to my mind with the book is that it is an EPIC love story. This is the second in The Bronze Horseman trilogy. The saga continues on where the first book left off. Tatiana is only 18, pregnant, and has just been told that the one and only person she has left in her world, her husband, Alexander, has been killed. So with no other options, she begins her journey to America as her and Alexander had planned for the two of them. She makes her escape through Finland and beyond and starts a new life in New York City . Although Tatiana is a widow in her heart of hearts she just cannot believe it. Her love with Alexander is too strong and too deep to believe that awful truth and she never lets go of that hope. While Tatiana holds on to her truth, Alexander is alive and fighting for his life in Russia where he is trapped with no way out and no way to get back to his love. What Alexander endures is too much to imagine at times and makes you love him all the more that he does…always with her in his heart. This book gives background history from the first book. You learn about Alexanders family and more about how his parents ended up in Russia. Just like the first book this is heart wrenching and quite the page turner. The love these two have for each
other and their connection to each other have made them my all time favorite character couple. I just cannot get enough of them and am so happy that there is one more book to go.
