5.0 out of 5 stars Twisted and foul-mouthed heroine kicks up a storm in the Keys, 16 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Miriam Black is back in the third book of this griping, kick-arse, TORNADO of a series! Miriam is cursed with the ability to see how and when a person dies just by touching them. Tortured by the desire to try to prevent some grisly and untimely deaths, our heroine (or is she an anti-heroine?)sets out to take out the perpetrators before the events can occur.
But someone from her past is leaving messages in her visions, and those close to her are under threat.
The Florida Keys are the back-drop for this latest tale full of characters old and new. An unmissable novel for anyone in love with the inimitable Miriam Black!

(Couldn't put this down - read it in 3 days, highly recommended!)

5.0 out of 5 stars Gripping and haunting, 18 Jun 2013

This review is from: Rose Under Fire (Paperback)
Having wolfed down Elizabeth Wein's previous novel Code Name Verity and totally adored it, I was hungry for more. Rose Under Fire did not disappoint.

Rose Justice, a young American pilot (and amateur poet),is working for the ATA delivering planes and ferrying pilots for the RAF during World War 2. Whilst trying to bring down a 'pilotless plane' during one of her missions, she looses her way and ends up in the hands of the enemy. In Ravensbruck concentration camp she meets the 'Rabbits' - girls experimented on by Nazi doctors.

It's a chilling tale, but also one of bravery and friendship in the face of pure evil. Wonderfully told - Elizabeth Wein is a master story teller, and this book is un-put-downable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unforgettable tale of Best Friends during world war 2, 13 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Code Name Verity (Paperback)
I'm more of a fantasy tale sort of girl, and this isn't the sort of book I would normally read, but it was recommended by an author whose blog I follow, so I had a look at the sample on amazon, and knew straight away I was going to love it. I read the whole book in two days flat!!!
Two young women meet while working for the Royal Air Force during world war 2 and become best friends. A series of incidents leads them to fly together over German occupied France. Their plane is shot down, and one of them parachutes out, only to be caught by the Gestapo. Under torture, she is made to tell everything she knows about the British war effort. Her story starts and ends with her very best friend.

I loved this book so much (though it made me cry and cry) that as soon as I finished it, I bought Elizabeth Wein's next book, Rose Under Fire. Looking forward to being just as entranced with that.

Love this song. Great tune, very catchy (quite sexy really, but can I say that when my kids know the words too?)
