KINDLE õ The Huntress Ü Kate Quinn

From 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 There’ll be a chance Nina Borisovna her father had said Don’t ask when you see it Just fucking take it 4 12 stars I love historical fiction that introduces me to little areas of history that school lessons and history books never taught me about Fiction is my passion but I love it even when it uncovers oft buried truths Here uinn blends fact and fiction to tell a story about three women a murderess on the run an aspiring photographer who may be in danger in her own home and one of the Nachthexen The Night Witches These Night Witches were very real I've heard the term before but knew very little about this all female Soviet bomber regiment In this book Nina fights her way out of the coldness and poverty of Siberia away from her abusive father and towards her dreams of flight As a Soviet pilot she finds her true place and family But as the book is split between several different years and we know where Nina ends up there is an air of sadness about these chapters too a looming sense that something is going to go horribly wrongSome years later in a completely different time and place a young Bostonian named Jordan longs to be a photographer but is held back because she is a girl Fortunately it looks like her new stepmother could offer a solution But Jordan is constantly haunted by a picture she took back when her father first introduced Annaliese Just one picture that seemed for a brief moment to show another side to the womanIn yet another time and note that there are roughly five years between each of the time periods journalist Ian Graham tracks down monsters And no monster plays on his mind than die Jagerin The Huntress A Nazi A cold blooded killer He pursues her accompanied by the same Nina we've met before and finds himself trekking across the ocean in his chaseIt's a very rich character driven story with many layers and secrets Each of the characters is so well drawn and complex with Nina being especially fabulous It is in turn a portrait of women fighting the constraints placed upon them by the societies in which they live and a thrilling pursuit of a terrifying female villain I feel I should say it is not much of a mystery if that is something you're expecting Uncovering the Huntress's identity is not the main focus; exploring the lives and aspirations of Nina and Jordan isThe only thing I didn't like so much was the romance It wasn't that I minded them being together but I found it an unnecessary development that added nothing to the story There was already so much going on Still it's a small complaint reallyuinn reintroduces the same split timeperspective techniue she used in The Alice Network but I think it worked much better here All of the perspectives were interesting and exciting to me What I love most about both of the uinn books I've read is how she puts women back into the history they have long been written out of She reminds us that women were pilots and spies and fighters and yes even murderers I liked it a lotBlog | Facebook | Twitter | Instagram | Youtube
