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 acts.Ian 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 US.Nina 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 pilots.Ian 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 quote 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 antique 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 life.All of these storylines are woven together wonderfully, from one character to another, from past to present until they become one, fantastic writing This is wonderful historical fiction with a great plot to immerse yourself in I found the ending to be exciting,

German committing the incomprehensible out of Nazi Party zeal or is it simply that her murderous nature is given free reign due to the Nazis being in power Either way what she does is beyond monstrous

pages of the text and be lost in the imagination of truly gifted storyteller That s how I feel every time I acquire a novel by Kate Quinn and The Huntress was no exception.Be it the functional operation of a camera, a well placed Russian expletive, the batting line up of 1951 Boston Red Sox, or the sensation of cutting through the clouds in the cockpit of a biplane, no detail is too small for Quinn s discerning eye I m willing to bet there are many readers who won t care a whit that Anna can drop her R s like a Bostonian and won t give two cents for the mythological symmetry in Quinn s referenced lake spirits, but I find such detail truly appealing and think it contributes a great deal to the immersive quality of the narrative.Thematically speaking, the Nazi hunters pursuit of justice is thrilling enough and might have proved captivating on its own, but Quinn s decision to pair it with the emotional scars the war left on those who survived it took my breath away Ian, Nina, and even Anna carry a great deal of baggage and I found something very raw and authentic in how each tries to move forward in the post war years.Though they are not called out in the jacket description, I feel the romantic elements of the story are worthy of note Ian s falling in love with his own spouse touched my heart, but it was the relationship between Nina and Yelena that captured my attention The passion and dedication that brings them together are astounding, but I felt the course of their story deeply both perceptive and poignant.In sum, Quinn writes on a level few can match and The Huntress illustrates it every way Be it the audacity of the Night Witches, the unsung heroism of war correspondents or the boldness of those who sought to rectify injustice while the world tried to forget the horrors of WWII, this book touches it all A fast paced and thrilling tale that captivates from the first page to the last flag 42 likesLike see review View all 4 comments Oct 22,

hasn t seen in years because he married her only so she could enter England after fleeing Russia during the war Suddenly, the Huntress s trail goes from cold to hot and the Nazi hunting trio goes to Boston, Massachusetts, in pursuit.Enter Jordan McBride, a young Bostonian who wants to become a photographer but is constrained by the expectations that she marry her boyfriend, settle down, raise a family, and run her father s antique shop She quickly gets caught up in the Nazi hunters net.Like Quinn s The Alice Network, The Huntress has multiple points of view Jordan s, Ian s, and Nina s that shift back and forth in time Jordan and Ian s are in 1950 and Nina s goes from 1937 to 1944 Quinn handles the shifts smoothly from chapter to chapter, ending them with cliff hangers.Quinn s fascinating story is based on real life characters such as a composite of two brutal woman Quinn based the Huntress on and the exploits of the women pilots of the 46th Taman Guards Night Bomber Aviation Regiment who fought for Russia America had their Women Airforce Service Pilots or WASPs, who ferried planes from factories But Russia was the only country during World War II that allowed women to be combat pilots Unfortunately, for me the novel has a few weaknesses that put it in the four star category instead of the five star I found Nina s personality so over the top that it detracts from the narrative Other parts, such as the send off her fellow pilots give her when she escapes from Russia is too schmaltzy and theatrical The ending is too theatrical and unbelievable as well In some cases, Quinn puts a lot of narrative between the dialogue in a paragraph, which detracts from the tension.You know pretty early who the Huntress is And I think the novel could have been better if she had a POV too instead of just having the reader wait impatiently for the characters to finally figure out her identity The series Hidden, on ACORN TV, opens with the killer in action and then alternates back and forth between him and the police trying to identify him and also identify, locate, and rescue his current victim The juxtaposition makes the series compelling But this is just quibbling The Huntress is a fantastic, page turning story by a top notch author.Quinn is one of my favorite authors, and I was thrilled to win The Huntress in a giveaway When I received it, they asked

This is a comprehensive book that covers a lot of historical events that are not well known The main premise of the book is one I m familiar with many Nazi perpretrators were never punished for their crimes The big fish were tried in Nuremburg shortly after the war Most were men What I did not know but the author thoroughly researched, is that there were many who did not flee to Argentina like Eichman but somehow finagled a way to enter the United States and begin a new life Or maybe Canada or England.The Huntress is based on a real person who brought 6 children into her warm home, fed them a warm meal, treated them kindly, then took them outside and shot them in cold blood She enjoyed the sport of hunting in the forests around her home She wasn t hunting animals One character in the book is also a new one for me A female pilot from a Russian regiment of all female pilots They were treated as inferior by the government and by male pilots so they had to prove what they could do They were issued old and slow airplanes while their male counterparts had the faster and nimble machines Their success and determination was a large reason the Germans retreated west Adding to this story is the communist political situation which Nina eventually must face.The other characters are interesting but the book really revolves around these two women plus an American woman who wants to be a professional photographer but has concerns closer to home She worries about her dad, his store, and her little sister She has mixed feelings about her stepmother The development of these three characters is particularly well done The events highlighted in this book are very well researched flag 6 likesLike see review Aug 01, 2018 Christie SHBBblogger marked it as to read review of another

Nazi murderess who committed horrific war crimes before fleeing to Boston where she embeds herself in an All American family.Kate Quinn is a master at weaving real history into fictional characters and stories You might think the fact that they are fictional takes away from the impact of the story but it doesn t, because although the main characters are fictional, they are usually inspired by real life historical figures, and the plot based on real life historical events And best of all, Quinn s hallmark is her strong and compelling, yet realistic heroines.Like The Alice Network , this one jumps back and forth in the timeline, but only over a span of about 10 years We see the war only through Nina s eyes, a Russian pilot who grew up in the wilderness of Siberia with an abusive father In the scenes after the war, it s told from the point of view of Ian, a former journalist turned war criminal tracker, and Jordan, a young woman in Boston who can t get passed the niggling thought that something isn t quite right with her seemingly perfect new stepmother.It was a little frustrating to know the whole time where the huntress was hiding but the characters having no way of knowing that, but it did not detract from the enjoyment of the story For a moment in the beginning, I thought maybe Nina s identity was stolen by the huntress, but then I realized that was silly, Kate Quinn doesn t really do twists like that It s not a mystery But it is an incredibly good story and I had great difficulty putting it down.Advanced review copy from publisher via Edelweiss My opinions are my
