Book review: Wolfsangel by Liza Perrat + International Giveaway

Image

When I opened this blog, I promised myself I would be reviewing nothing but chick lit on it, but this time I have to make an exception! Because though this is a historical fiction, it’s definitely a book that’s very close to my heart. I do hope each one of you will check it out and fall in love with it same way I did. Now read on my review and make sure you enter the fantastic giveaway in the rafflecopter form bellow!

WOW! Now this is what I call a powerful book! And not only that, it’s probably one of the best historical books I’ve ever read (right next to Pope Joan and Mistress of Rome).

This book is BEAUTIFUL! It’s the sequel to Spirit of Lost Angels and gosh, I loved that book so much( read my review here). To be completely frank, though my expectations were high (since I was already familiar with Liza’s writing style) I totally didn’t expect THIS! Now of course I mean THIS the best possible way, seriously, this book exceeded all my expectations and I don’t think I’ll be able to find another historical book that will top it..at least not any time soon.

Now those of you who have read ‘Spirit of Lost Angels’ know that Liza is a wonderful story teller and is so thorough in her research. She’s also very (VERY) good in creating kick ass heroines who are devoted to their country (France), who are willing to make a sacrifice for their loved ones and have BIG hearts.

While ‘Spirit of Lost Angels’ is placed in France during the French Revolution, in‘Wolfsangel’ Liza takes us to France during World War II. In the little Lucie-sur-Vionne we get to witness not only the cruelty of the German Officers but also see the lives of the villagers, their sacrifices and struggle. We’re transported in one of the toughest times the human history has seen, being lead by Celeste and the events in her life. Once again, Liza created a lovable character, a heroine we can all look upto, brave yet human, with one of the biggest challenges ahead of her. Two paths, one leading to the German officer she develops strong feelings for, the other towards the call to fight for her country.

Of course, once again we see the angel talisman she inherited from her mother’s side, and which is the source of her strength and the symbol of all the sacrifices the women in her family made.

I can only applaud to Liza for writing such powerful stories. I think even those who don’t enjoy historical fiction will fall in love with this series. The characters are well developed and the descriptions are so vivid, you’ll be immediately transported to France in those turbulent times. Amazing and deep, this is definitely a must read for everyone looking for a great book. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

My rating: 5/5

  7. What interests me here is that this is WW2 fiction from a rather less common angle, in that it is set in France, which came under German occupation!
