Inhaltsangabe: Nick Rostov finally has the life he's always dreamed-and he'll do anything to protect it. Nick has only now discovered he is part of an extended Russian family of magicians. He lives with his eccentric new relatives at the Winter Palace Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, where they perform daring feats of real magic to a packed house. But Nick and his family face a new danger in the form of a stolen relic, the Pyramid of Souls. The tiny pyramid has traded hands many times throughout history. Its power can steal a magician's very soul. Nick knows who took it: Rasputin, leader of the Shadowkeepers. Using his unique ability as a Gazer-one who can see into the past-Nick enlists his cousin Isabella to help him find it. Soon, the two are hot on the evil sorcerer's trail - until Isabella's soul is trapped by the very relic they're trying to find. Nick will do anything to rescue Isabella and recover the Pyramid of Souls. But will it be enough to save his family?
Though grounded in Russian history....this fantasy earns style points for being set in modern Las Vegas - in a hotel whose residents include polar bears, giant Siberian tigers, and Princess Anastasia herself. --Kirkus
Kirov's story feels plenty original, and kids will be charmed by her brand of magic. --Publishers Weekly
