Oh my god, what a book!! If you're interested in historical thrillers with a beautiful romance thread then this is the book for you. As the sequel to The Kommandant's Girl you must read that first as there are many references to characters from that novel which wouldn't have the same impact if you have no read TKG.
This book is full of unpredictable twists and turns, I had no idea things would turn out the way they did. I preferred this to TKG, as it had more action, the stakes were higher, and the plot twists were strong and plausible enough to allow me to finish the book in 5 hours!
Such a phenomenal novel, one of the best books of its genre I have read.
Jenoff is an amazing author. I've never read books like hers before, the way she writes is the perfect balance of romance, description, and tension, she's become an inspiration to me already after reading two of her novels.
