NOW AVAILABLE I LOVE THIS AUTHORThis was going to be a 4 star read until the ending wow that bumped it up to 5 stars The authors notes at the end of the book are just as interesting to read as the book Knowing that much of the book is based on actual events and real people made the book come alive for me that much From the blurb you know that there is a team that is still hunting Nazi war criminals even after the Nuremberg trials We are now in the late 1940’s and it’s getting harder and harder to find survivors who can identify the Nazi SS who committed the horrendous actsIan is a former British war correspondent who has teamed up with Tony a former US soldier working in a small office in Vienna trying to find information on Nazi’s who have fled and are hiding in Europe and now the USNina is a former Russian fighter pilot their regiment was called “The Night Witches” because their planes descended so silently that the Germans on the ground didn’t hear them coming until they had dropped their bombs These women were young and fierce and did as many as 8 to 10 runs a night in planes made of wood and fabric with an open cockpit Nina met Tony when she was recuperating at a hospital but I will leave that story for you to discover I found Nina’s story to be mesmerizing what heroes these women were The Soviets were the only air force that used women pilotsIan’s and Tony’s next target is a woman SS soldier who was known as “The Huntress” she showed no mercy killing hundreds of innocent people including many children Nina will team up with Tony and Ian to find her Both Nina and Ian have personal reasons for bringing justice to “The Huntress” they are prepared to do whatever it takes to hunt her down A uote from Nina “Die Jagerin The Huntress She kills because she likes it and she hunts what she thinks are easy targets children people on the run those who can’t fight her” Jordan is a young woman of about 18 living in the United States She helps her father run an antiue shop in Boston but is an avid photographer Though she has a serious boyfriend later fiance she still has hopes of making photography her lifelong passion Her father meets a German woman whom he starts to seriously date she has a young daughter Ruth Jordan isn’t sure why but she doesn’t trust this woman Anneliese Her 4 year old daughter Ruth has nightmares that can’t be explained It is obvious that the little girl has suffered some trauma in her lifeAll of these storylines are woven together wonderfully from one character to another from past to present until they become one fantastic writingThis is wonderful historical fiction with a great plot to immerse yourself in I found the ending to be exciting satisfying and memorable Kate uinn has written another winner I would recommend this book to any fan of historical fictionThis was a Traveling Sister read I received an ARC of this novel from the publisher through Edelweiss

characters The Huntress

The HuntressFrom the author of the New York Times and USA Today bestselling novel THE ALICE NETWORK comes another fascinating historical novel about a battle haunted English journalist and a Russian female bomber pilot who join forces to track the Huntress a Nazi war criminal gone to ground in America In the aftermath of war the hunter becomes the hunted Bold and fearless Nina Markova always dreamed of flying When the Nazis attack the Soviet Union she risks everything to join the legendary Night Witches an all female night bomber regiment wreaking havoc on the invading Germans When she is stranded behind ene. They called her die Jagerin the Huntress She was the young mistress of an SS officer in German occupied Poland the hostess of grand parties on the lake a keen shot Perhaps she was the rusalka the lake was named for a lethal malevolent water spiritHere lies Chelsea dead from a book slump brought on by The Huntress because for once the hype lived up to my expectations and the book's execution I'm not an avid reader of historical fiction and in the past year I decided that I was taking a break from WWII fiction due to the saturation and burnout I was feeling in the genre but this is mostly post WWII fiction so it doesn't count Right RIGHT After seeing so many rave review surrounding The Hunty I was cautiously optimistic that this would be an enjoyable read but friends this was a mind blowing masterpiece Lake Rusalka a lake in Poland named for a creature of the night and during the darkest years of the war a woman lived on her shores far fearful than any witch who crawled from a lake's depthsThe beauty of this novel is that it carries a powerful current of suspense without masuerading as a whodunnit You know from the very beginning who has done what but the format in which the author chooses to let the story unfold is profound intoxicating and dare I say efficient than if she had tried to make any of the reveals embedded in the characters's identities Multiple POVs three to be exact keep the pace moving uickly and we are given bits of information from each angle which plays out to be a beautiful weaving of many lives affected by a single monster of a woman Not only are we privy to this tangling of fates but inserted we have rich development of the hunting team and well as lush atmospheric descriptions of the multiple settings past and present What about the Huntress She vanished at the war's end She was not worth pursuing a woman with the blood of only a dozen or so on her hands when there were the murderers of millions to be found There were many like her small fish not worth catching Where will they go Where did she go And will anyone take up the huntOf the many fabulous characters Nina was my favorite protagonist and that's a tough choice because they were all wonderfully flawed But Nina oh Nina that woman has my heart Talk about a complex strong female who has no patience for laziness yet shows her vulnerabilities in her own ways I also felt that the character of the Huntress was one of the better villains I've read to date and uite possibly the most excellent female monsters to grace the pages of a novel Die Jagerin is truly a monster but uinn has given her so many dimensions and most importantly she has given her a horrific cause that she believes in with every fiber of her being The moments she crafts between her and the other characters especially Jordan give an unsettling conflict that causes the reader to wrestle with the Huntress's disgusting calling and her humanity emotion and weakness When an author can cause me to stop and ponder my feelings toward a monster that is the telling of an excellent storyFellow readers I highly recommend you pick this one up even if you aren't traditionally a fan of historical fiction This one reads much like a thriller; the beginning sets the stage and carries forth with an initial slow burn that develops into a full blown compulsive page turner I can see that this will easily be one of the top 10 novels of 2019 that I read as it checked all the boxes for me and I hope if you choose to read it as well that you'll acuire your own precious experience with these characters I received a review copy via the publisher
