Title: Prisoner of Night and Fog
Genre: Young Adult, Historical Fiction
Publisher: Balzer + Bray
Release Date: April 22nd 2014 (woot woot few more days)




In 1930s Munich, danger lurks behind dark corners, and secrets are buried deep within the city. But Gretchen Müller, who grew up in the National Socialist Party under the wing of her "uncle" Dolf, has been shielded from that side of society ever since her father traded his life for Dolf's, and Gretchen is his favorite, his pet.

Uncle Dolf is none other than Adolf Hitler.

And Gretchen follows his every command.

Until she meets a fearless and handsome young Jewish reporter named Daniel Cohen. Gretchen should despise Daniel, yet she can't stop herself from listening to his story: that her father, the adored Nazi martyr, was actually murdered by an unknown comrade. She also can't help the fierce attraction brewing between them, despite everything she's been taught to believe about Jews.

As Gretchen investigates the very people she's always considered friends, she must decide where her loyalties lie. Will she choose the safety of her former life as a Nazi darling, or will she dare to dig up the truth—even if it could get her and Daniel killed?

Bored after umpteen radio, TV and book incarnations replica handbags, Adams rid himself of the hikers in the novel Mostly Harmless. The characters find themselves on a parallel Earth, just as the Vogons begin demolition. One of the more replica wathces melodramatic was for Adric, a boy who traveled in the TARDIS for two years of Doctor Who. Adric was often voted the 'most hated' companion in the Whoniverse, but his passing was still memorable, trapped gucci replica on a spaceship as it strikes prehistoric earth (the asteroid, see?) while the Doctor watches in horror. Similar fates overtake regular characters Elias Taylor, arbitrarily disintegrated midway through the weekly V series, and the good Professor Arturo (John Rhys-Davies), shot by villainous dimension-hopper Colonel Rickman in Sliders. Yet the biggest shock was in Babylon 5, when gentle chanel replica telepath Talia Winters (Andrea Thompson) has her personality erased--essentially killed--by a malign, implanted alter-ego. One classic example is the very fantastical Robin of Sherwood series from the 1980s. At the end of season two, the impossible happens: Robin (Michael Praed) is cornered by replica handbags the Sheriff's men.

The story was a great one. Having Hitler and the World War II into a YA story and keeping the reader so captivated by it, is simply amazing. I love the era and everything that surrounded it and I can tell you right now that I'll wait for more books in this series.
