Summary: The Allies and the Nazis are in a deadly race to develop the ultimate weapon while supersonic V-2 rockets rain down on London. Madeleine Toche and Berthold Hartmann, the German super assassin who taught her to kill, search for the secret factory where Werner von Braun and his Gestapos masters use slave labor to build the weapons as the bodies of the innocent pile up. The Allied ground forces push towards Berlin while the German SS fight savagely for each inch of ground.
Finding the factory hidden beneath Mount Kohnstein, Hartmann contacts his old enemy, Winston Churchill and summons Madeleine to his side. While she moves to bring the mountain down on her enemies, Hartmann leads a daring escape from the dreaded Dora concentration camp to continue his revenge against the monsters who ruined his beloved Germany.
Together with the Russian Nachtlexen, the Night Witches, fearsome female pilots the race tightens as the United States and the Germans successfully carry out an atomic bomb test.
Germany installs an atom bomb in a V-2 pointed towards London, while the US delivers one to a forward base in the Pacific. The fate of the Second World War and the future of mankind hangs in the balance.
Having finished and enjoyed, Cold Lonely Courage, the first book in this series – I was very interested in continuing the story and following more of Madeleine Toche’s journey. Needless to say, I was not let down by the second book. It was just as fascinating as the first book was. Soren Paul Petrek has done a brilliant job with these books. They’re both filled with intricate details about the world war that really pull you into the story. He shows you not just what is happening to the main characters but also what is going on elsewhere which is really helpful. I found this book to be very entertaining and one that I am glad that I got a chance to read.
If you’re a big history buff, or have a fascination with World War 2, I can not recommend these books more. Further to that, these books centre around a strong, powerful female which is always wonderful to read about. There is a lot of action in these books and I honestly think that they will be perfect for those who want just a little bit more from their reads. So if you’re looking for an intense, well thought out, well-written series about the second world war, then look no further!
