Wolfsangel captures the tragedy of betrayal and the constancy of hope. It brings home to the reader that choices made in youth, both good and bad, cast deep shadows.

FrenchVillageDiaries: http://www.frenchvillagediaries.com/2014/11/book-review-of-wolfsangel-by-liza-perrat.html A page turning, passionate historical novel set amidst the hardship and secrecy of a village in German occupied France ... If reading about France during The Occupation fascinates you, this book is for you. ChristophFischerBooks (TOP 500 REVIEWER): http://historicalnovelsociety.org/reviews/wolfsangel/ I reviewed this book for the Historical Novel Society ... I found the story a good and entertaining play on the familiar theme of love in the twilight of politics and honour and grippingly dramatic. The prose and the writing are beautiful, the central character conflict and the outcome are very satisfying and the book is a solid achievement. Maryline M's Bookshelf - http://mssbookshelf.blogspot.fr/2013/11/book-review-wolfsangel-liza-perrat.html Expectations were high for "Wolfsangel" after reading the brilliant Spirit of Lost Angels but Liza Perrat met all of them. Her wonderful storytelling catapults you back in time ... I cannot stress enough how amazing the "L'Auberge des Anges" series is! Jaffareadstoo TOP 500 AMAZON REVIEWER: http://jaffareadstoo.blogspot.fr/2013/11/in-conversation-with-liza-perrat.html The emotional opening chapter sets the scene for a powerful and dramatic story, which takes the reader back to 1943, and to a dark time in France's history, when the German occupation of this tiny French village had a profound effect on those who lived and worked under the shadow of cruelty and repression. With superb skill, the author has manipulated the narrative into a powerful depiction of a dark and dangerous time. Beautifully researched, and based on historical factual evidence, the story has an emotional depth which pervades and which reveals a story of courage, bravery and unforgettable heroism. Anne Cater: TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE : http://randomthingsthroughmyletterbox.blogspot.fr/2013/11/wolfsangel-by-liza-perrat.html Liza Perrat's writing is full of passion and realism, the reader is drawn into the action and becomes part of the village from the opening chapters. The brutality of war, and of human behaviour is laid bare by the author who is not afraid to include the full horror of events. Wolfsangel is a fascinating, forceful and extremely well researched novel that will thrill historical fiction fans. Liza Perrat writes elegantly, with feeling and authority. L. H. Healy (TOP 500 REVIEWER): http://thelittlereaderlibrary.blogspot.fr/2014/06/wolfsangel-liza-perrat.html?spref=fb The novel depicts the bravery of resistance that many ordinary people displayed in those terrible times. The author has evidently researched this period well and has created a vivid, believable backdrop against which her engaging, honest tale is told. I felt admiration, shock and sadness as I read this story; the awful truth of some events during wartime is not avoided here. This is an absorbing, well-researched and well-written novel ideal for anyone who enjoys reading historical fiction. ReadingInTheSunshine (TOP 100 REVIEWER): http://readinginthesunshine.wordpress.com/tag/wolfsangel/ Wolfsangel is a powerful story that has stayed with me since finishing the last page...wow.

The disruption of normal life and the sheer presence of tight control, almost imprisonment in your own life, is shocking to us in Western countries today. Liza Perrat’s story of the German occupation of a small French village in1943 gives us an uncomfortable taste of this.

Perrat draws the village characters deftly and highlights the high level of resourcefulness, inner strength, and sometimes lies, that were essential if you were to survive.

It was a tension-loaded read. We know from education and reading other work that it was dangerous, often fatal, speaking and acting against the occupying forces; you had to be exceptional to attempt these. We have read stories of deportation and execution, so we know the worst that could have happen. Yet I was still on the edge of my seat reading Wolfsangel.

I’ve walked through the ruins of Oradur-sur-Glane where probably the worst atrocity outside the Vél d’Hiver took place. Perrat has obviously been there. Nothing else could have inspired her writing.

From naive, demanding teenager to stoic toughie, Celeste the heroine of the story grows as a character, scarred and hardened by atrocious events. Always passionate, sometimes hot-headed, she is seized by events, anger and a thirst for revenge at the crisis moment.

A couple of points: occasionally, there were hints of telling us the story, rather than showing scenes of things happening. For instance, I would like to have seen Allied/French troops entering the village of Lucie and the inhabitants’ reactions.

As a historian, my specialist period was the Third Reich.

Admidst the death and destruction of World War II, the tiny village of Lucie-sur-Vionne, finds itself occupied by the German army. They have pillaged, seized, or requisitioned homes, farms, animals, and food. Celeste's family is adversely affected when her father is sent to a work camp. When she stumbles upon a Jewish family, she hides them in her home. Bit by bit, she is drawn in by the secretive French Resistance, and handsome young German officer who falls in love with her. But in a world where no one can be trusted, does he truly love her or is he merely using her as a means to gather intelligence on the resistance. Celeste begins to walk a fine line - where one mistake can mean someone's death.

This is book two in the Bone Angel trilogy, and what a fabulous book. Like the first book in the series, I was deeply engrossed in the story, gripped by it, and unable to put it down. I can't rave enough about this novel. And that's saying a lot because I tend to avoid World War II stories as it is not my favourite genre. This book is a must read! Lush prose, beautiful descriptions, tension filled life and death situations, and overwhelming loss color each page of this compelling book.

This is the third Liza Perrat novel I have read and she is fast becoming a favourite, an author who I can depend on to write a terrific story.

Thank you to the author and publisher. I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Thank you for visiting my blog, [...], where the greatest historical fiction is reviewed!

By Lincs Reader TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 14 Nov. 2013
Format: Paperback
Wolfsangel by Liza Perrat is the second in the L'Auberge des Anges series and follows Spirit of Lost Angels (September 2012). Wolfsangel was published by Triskele Books on 17 October 2013.

Please don't think that you have to go away and read Spirit of Lost Angels first (although it's a great read and I'd certainly recommend it), Wolfsangel works extremely well as a stand alone story. This series centres around an angel talisman, carved in bone and passed down through generations of women of the Charpentier family - the women are healers and midwives.

The story is set in the small French village Lucie-sur-Vionne during the Second World War, the village is occupied by German soldiers whose presence cast a darkness over the community. The villagers are determined that they will not lie down and surrender, and the Resistance fighters scheme to find ways to outwit the enemy.

Liza Perrat's writing is full of passion and realism, the reader is drawn into the action and becomes part of the village from the opening chapters. The lead character; Celeste, has many difficult situations to deal with during the course of the story - her predicaments and her decisions are harrowing at times and leads the reader to consider how one decision can change the course of a life. Entwined into the story are true events, and it is this that adds authenticity and also the shock factor. The brutality of war, and of human behaviour is laid bare by the author who is not afraid to include the full horror of events that really happened.

Celeste is a brave character, a woman who wants to do her part for her country.
