It was interesting to read about how a large city, in this case--Paris--managed to survive during WW1. Humans are survivors. The jewelry making was interesting, but I 'm not sure how much was real. It added color to the story as did the Russian immigration of people fleeing Russia, tying in the story of the Tsar and his family.

Had potential but didn't take history, alchemy, or jewelry making very deep. Some of the story became redundant. The story has the makings of a really good read but I feel it didn't deliver.
