The mystery surrounding what happened to Anastasia and her siblings in July 1918 in a cellar in the city of Ekaterinburg endures. This is despite DNA evidence to the contrary. (see here and here). Some contend that the evidence is faulty... and the legend continues...

The Last Romanov by Dora Levy Mossanen - Giveaway
IN A TIME OF RASPUTIN'S MAGIC AND ROMANOV MYSTERY, A YOUNG GIRL FINDS HERSELF AT THE HEART OF THE ROYAL FAMILY

She was an orphan, ushered into the royal palace on the prayers of her majestry. Yet, decades later, her time spent in the embrace of the Romanovs haunts her still. Is she responsible for those murderous events that changed everything?

If only she can find the heir, maybe she can put together the broken pieces of her own past-maybe she can hold on to the love she found. Bursting to life with the rich and glorious marvels of Imperial Russia, The Last Romanov is a magical tale of second chances and royal blood.
