In 1917, Alma Pihl, a master craftsman in the House of Fabergé, was charged to protect one of the greatest secrets in Russian history–an unknown Fabergé Egg that Peter Karl Fabergé secretly created to honor his divided allegiance to both the people of Russia and the Imperial tsar’s family. When Alma and her husband escaped Russia for their native Finland in 1921, she took the secret with her, guarding her past connection to the Romanov family. 

Three generations later, world-renowned treasure hunter Nick Laine is sick and fears the secret of the missing egg will die with him. With time running out, he entrusts the mission of retrieving the egg to his estranged daughter, Ava, who has little idea of the dangers she is about to face. As the stakes are raised, Ava is forced to declare her own allegiance–and the consequences are greater than she could have imagined.

My thoughts:

I read a book by Kelli a long time ago and loved it so I wanted to read this one and see what she was up to.

This is a very interesting story and you get to travel to Russia. Which, in light of the current climate there, is rather interesting. I doesn’t sound like a beautiful country and many wonderful things to sightsee.

I was interested in Zak and wondered what was up with him. Could we really trust him? I had my doubts but I won’t tell you if I was right or just totally off base, you’ll have to read to found out.

This is a non-stop adventure. I adored and Ava and her mom and I really wanted Ava to mend her relationship with her dad. Again, all things you’ll have to read for yourself and I highly recommend you to.
