This is the second Author Highlights which I started recently an will only do once or twice a month. Our first one was about Melanie Dickerson and her Romance books which can be found Here. Now this time we have……Drum roll……..
Anne Blankman is the author of Prisoner of Night and Fog, Conspiracy of Blood and Smoke, and Traitor Angels.
I have read all three of her books and adored them. They are wonderful. Each of her characters are lovable and have secrets that I itched to uncover. Anne wonderfully portrayed the world surrounding the characters and by the end of each book I felt that I had a better understanding of the times in which the characters lived.
The Prisoner of Night and Fog and the Conspiracy of Blood and Smoke are a series entailing the life of the beloved fictional character of Gretchen, Adolf Hitler’s niece. She leads a the sheltered life as the pet of a rising politician until one day she meets a Jewish reporter, Daniel who is intent on telling her a story that disagrees with everything she has been taught. As she sets out on a journey to find the truth she begins to feel an attraction for Daniel and question the beliefs and ideals that she has been taught as the Nazi darling.
