    I had the distinct pleasure of reading an early copy for a cover quote and I was taken in from page one hook, line and sinker. Expertly researched, perfectly constructed, this is a riveting dual-time periods read. Kate Quinn excels in transporting the reader back in time, without so mu...

    Kate Quinn knows how to do historical fiction. The Alice Network was one of my favorite reads of 2018. And this book matches it. Five big stars! I want a book that explores unknown areas of history. Here, it is the Nazi hunters, those that track down the villains of WWII. In this ...

    There?ll be a chance, Nina Borisovna, her father had said. Don?t ask, when you see it. Just fucking take it. 4 1/2 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, b...

    I wanted to read this because I really enjoyed The Alice Network by Kate Quinn. I loved reading about the women of a spy network, who played important and dangerous roles in WWI that I had never heard about. These women were not in my history textbooks. In this novel, Quinn has given u...

    I was lucky enough to get an early read of The Huntress, which is sure to be one of the biggest books of 2019. In it, Quinn weaves together the stories of a British Nazi hunter, a Russian female war pilot and a 17 year old American girl who quickly realizes her stepmother isn't who she...

    I thoroughly enjoyed my first book by Kate Quinn--so much so that I immediately read The Alice Network afterward (if you haven't read it, then I recommend it too)!The Huntress is a vivid and well-researched story that takes places after World War II. Ian Graham, a famous British ex-w...

    A trio of Nazi hunters, a lethal Nazi murder, a Russian bomber pilot and a gentle and quiet family where something just doesn?t seem right. The Huntress is a suspenseful, exciting, compelling vividly written story that explores justice with a hint of romance to warm your heart. Th...

    PHENOMENAL. I admit that I was a bit wary of all of the hype over this one since sometimes hype = my expectations being way too high, but in this case, I honestly don't think my expectations could have EVER reached the level of how much I love this book! Historical fiction with multipl...

    "They called her die Jagerin-the Huntress. She was the young mistress of an SS officer in German-occupied Poland, the hostess of grand parties on the lake, a keen shot. Perhaps she was the rusalka the lake was named for-a lethal, malevolent water spirit." Here lies Chelsea, dead fro...
