Hitler's Angel is about a girl called Leni and a boy called Otto. They had fled the Nazis, to England, but then they are recruited. Recruited for a secret operation -- they have to kidnap a girl and take her to England. She could destroy Hitler's regime.

It's an amazing story, woven with intrigue, telling the whole terrifying adventure.
It all comes down to one question: who is Angelika, the Hitler's Angel? What is her real identity?

A thriller.
Expertly written.
Something unique, that you can't put down.
Hitler's Angel -- a future hit among twelve year olds.

5.0 out of 5 stars A cracking adventure for young adults 24 Oct 2012
By Sid Nuncius HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I really enjoyed this adventure for early teenagers. The premise of the book is utterly preposterous, the plot creaks a bit and the language and attitudes are often more 2012 than 1941, but I really didn't mind. It's a great adventure story which carried me along very well.

The plot involves two young teenage refugees from the Nazis living in Britain who agree to return to Germany undercover (after two whole weeks training) to take a child out of captivity and into Switzerland. This mission is vital to the British War Effort at a time when the war was being lost. So far, so unlikely, but it's an exciting adventure not a historical documentary so you need to forget your scepticism and just enjoy the ride. The storytelling is fast-paced and exciting, the lead characters (one male, one female) are engaging, the villain is very villainous and the historical background is well sketched without weighing down the narrative. There are constant narrow escapes and exciting action and I'd have loved this aged 12. I still liked it a lot aged...well...a lot more than 12, and I'm sure it will appeal to young adults of both sexes.

I have one criticism - the map at the front. It is very helpful to know the geography of the area, but it also clearly shows their entire route which acts as a rather large spoiler in places and I'd recommend not looking at it first if you can avoid it. Otherwise it's tremendously enjoyable - perhaps not an enduring classic, but a cracking read nonetheless and warmly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars awsome 1 Aug 2012
Format:Paperback
Hitler's angel is the best book my daughter have ever read. its about 2 refugees (Otto and Leni) on a mission back to Germany to kidnap a girl and bring her back to England. this book shows the strongest loyalty and friendship. it shows how cruel some people can be and how good they could be even risking their life. through their journey Otto and Leni also try understand who this girl is. it's a great page turner right from the start and i recommend it! risking their lives with a false identity can they do it?

By Alessi Lover TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Lenni and Otto have a secret operation they must preform and one that brings about what true friendship means.

I originally ordered this book for our 10 year old son, but it looked so inviting to myself I had to read it first. So agewise anything from 10 to 45. Also suitable for both girls and boys that like adventure stories.

It gets five stars from myself as it is full of adventure but believable adventure, the parts about the Second World War, Dunkirk etc were all told as though you could imagine yourself there. Makes a change from mythical legends and vampires.

Not going to give any of the plot away as enough on the blurb has already been said and any more would spoil it for other readers, but once got hold of you do find it hard to put down, hence me reading it over the weekend.

The book title did make me wonder if it would be suitable for son, as at primary school they don't tend to do much about the war and books with some titles don't get allowed out on the school library bus. Saying that he has just started it and even though the girl has a main character part in the story he still thinks it is a great book. Interesting to see the reaction when taken into school as a reading book.

4.0 out of 5 stars High-Speed History 18 Oct 2012
By Book Gannet TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Otto and Leni are two teenagers sheltering in Britain during WW2. Both are far from home, both are outsiders and both are grateful to be safe. So when the British Government come to call, wanting to send them back to Germany on a top secret mission, they have a tough choice to make.

And yet it's easy too. With so many already sacrificing so much, and with their own reasons to hit back at the Nazis, both say yes. After all it's only a small mission - parachute into Bavaria, retrieve the parcel and escape to Switzerland.

Except the `parcel' is a young girl and Leni soon starts questioning why both governments want her so badly. And then everything starts to go wrong...

From the chaos of the evacuation of Dunkirk to the suspicions of wartime Bavaria, this story sits firmly in its historical setting. Of the two young spies Leni is the stronger and more well-rounded character. She's brave, smart, determined and protective. True, she has a ruthless streak, but it's balanced by her care of Angelika.

Otto does not stand up well in comparison. I found him a bit feeble and lacking Leni's courage and determination. He does well enough when under pressure, but otherwise I found him dull. As for Angelika, the mysterious package, she is sweet, infuriating and braver than the others.

Racing to escape, they make a good team - especially when certain injuries seem to be forgotten. As the peril builds and their escapades become more desperate and dangerous, you can't help willing them to succeed. Heydrich makes a very convincing foe amidst other historical monsters, and the constant cat and mouse game adds to both the tension and the action.

Dramatic, tense and exciting, this is a good dose of historical fiction - be prepared to read it quickly, because you won't want to put it down.
