GENRE: Historic Fiction(with a twist)
The Maid of Baikal by Preston Fleming is an account of the Russian Revolution. It also involves a prophecy from the Maid. The story is told through the eyes of an outsider, and American, sent to consult. Fleming is a master story teller and it is obvious much research and thought went into this novel. Unfortunately the characters were not as developed as his Beirut Trilogy and at times the story got confusing. As a note I did read it as an ARC and gave Mr. Fleming this feedback. He is a fantasic author and probably fixed a few things before publishing. This review is long over due. As always with Preston Fleming's work he makes you think and that is always a worthwhile read.
