Sequel: Conspiracy of Blood and Smoke
First off, the cover is so perfect. Darling girl with a mysterious vibe!! My blood is rushing already with the anticipation…what is she running from??
I love reading books from other perspectives. In this book we read from the perspective of a young girl in Adolf Hitler’s inner circle. Many of her closest friends are Nazis. Of course, this changed through out the course of the novel as she began to realize life is not a simple as it seems. Secrets and hidden agendas lie all around her. She realizes her true friends and love can come from the most unlikely places.
Characters: It was interesting to read about Hitler from an admiring eye. Most definitely a change from normal. The main character is brave and darling. The Jewish reporter, who is the romantic figure, is adorable along with typical reporter gumption.
Why I want to read the sequel: Prisoner of Night and Fog happens before WWII. I want to know what happens during the war. Also, I need to see how the romance ends!
Language: 2/3 I honestly do not recall any, so if there was any…it was mild.
Sexual: 2 kissing perhaps. Girls argue about being loved by some psychopath.
Viloence: 4 May contain spoilers, highlight to read: Main character is beat-up badly by a supporting character who has problems. Early on in the book, Nazi boys beat-up a Jew. Lots of fights between political parties and gunfire.
