From the author of the New York Times and USA Today bestselling novel, THE ALICE NETWORK, comes another fascinating historical novel about a battle-haunted English journalist and a Russian female bomber pilot who join forces to track the Huntress, a Nazi war criminal gone to ground in America.

In the aftermath of war, the hunter becomes the hunted...

Bold and fearless, Nina Markova always dreamed of flying. When the Nazis attack the Soviet Union, she risks everything to join the legendary Night Witches, an all-female night bomber regiment wreaking havoc on the invading Germans. When she is stranded behind enemy lines, Nina becomes the prey of a lethal Nazi murderess known as the Huntress, and only Nina's bravery and cunning will keep her alive.

Transformed by the horrors he witnessed from Omaha Beach to the Nuremberg Trials, British war correspondent Ian Graham has become a Nazi hunter. Yet one target eludes him: a vicious predator known as the Huntress. To find her, the fierce, disciplined investigator joins forces with the only witness to escape the Huntress alive: the brazen, cocksure Nina. But a shared secret could derail their mission unless Ian and Nina force themselves to confront it.

Growing up in post-war Boston, seventeen-year-old Jordan McBride is determined to become a photographer. When her long-widowed father unexpectedly comes homes with a new fiancée, Jordan is thrilled. But there is something disconcerting about the soft-spoken German widow. Certain that danger is lurking, Jordan begins to delve into her new stepmother's past??only to discover that there are mysteries buried deep in her family . . . secrets that may threaten all Jordan holds dear.

In this immersive, heart-wrenching story, Kate Quinn illuminates the consequences of war on individual lives, and the price we pay to seek justice and truth.

This audiobook includes an episode of the Book Club Girl Podcast, featuring an interview with Kate Quinn about The Huntress.… (lisätietoja)

I really wanted to like this more. It has all the makings of a great historical fiction book, the writing just fell short for me. I thought it felt a little corny in spots and I thought it could have done without the romance, particularly Jordan’s. I just kept hearing Natasha (from Bullwinkle) every time Nina spoke. I think because of all that and the fact that the author didn’t really flesh out the characters, I never really connected to them. I did like learning about the Night Witches and would like read about them more in the future. ( )

In true Quinn fashion, The Huntress sets up three protagonists - three perspectives - to guide readers through the suspense, the terror, and the aftermath of WW2. Jordan and Ian show two different takes on finding one's place in the world after a major, life-altering ware. Meanwhile, Nina's perspective is firmly rooted in the thick of WW2 and the events leading up to what ultimately brings all of the characters together. Everyone in this story was so nuanced that you couldn't help liking them all and rooting for them. While this book definitely deals with some dark themes, it's nowhere near as dark as Quinn's previous novel The Alice Network, and it features an uplifting ending.

Ian and Nina's perspectives were the strongest. Bound together by a hasty marriage and desire for mutual revenge against the titular Huntress, these two show a tenacity that persists even through the scars incurred by the war. Nina grew up in a rural Siberian village before eventually making her way to an airfield to fight in WW2 as a navigator and pilot in Russia's famed Night Witches regiment. Her story is all about survival and how that survival hinges on the connections and relationships we make. Her story is very bittersweet and so moving. You can't help but admire her, even though none of us could ever be like her.

For his part, Ian is mourning his younger brother, who was killed by the Huntress. His story revolves around the question of morality in the face of ultimate evil and what separates justice from senseless killing. As a journalist with a heart that slowly thaws over the course of the novel, I couldn't always tell which way his character would go. Sometimes he seemed to relish a more settled life with kids and baseball games. Other times, he preferred being on the run, chasing down Nazis. I think his characterization could've been a little more consistent, but overall, I liked him.

Jordan's story was a coming of age story. Hers felt the most relatable to readers in that it was about a girl struggling to find her footing in the world without upsetting her boyfriend that she only likes and her dad whom she wants to protect. Personally, I found her story to be the least interesting, mostly because I really didn't think it was that necessary. Her big thing was that she suspects her new stepmom of being a high level and unsympathetic Nazi, but she can't quite get the upper hand. I thought Jordan's section let out the steam in the book because why else would we be following Jordan's story if her stepmom wasn't guilty? If anything, it showcased just how far our villainess was willing to go to obscure her identity, which is why the ending is frustrating to me. Up until Jordan knows Lorelai is guilty for sure, her stepmom proves herself to be quite intelligent. And then, Lorelai just gives up. It's clear she's willing to kill her own husband - Jordan's father - for self-preservation but then just decides she no longer cares when Jordan reveals her secret. She admits she'd rather commit suicide than run again, despite being quite good at running. Not only that, the ending was kind of lame. All of the heroes face down the villain, who is alone and desperate. While it was triumphant, it was too neat, too happy. It felt cliche and didn't fit the tone of the rest of the book. Not to mention that pretty much everyone gets into a happy relationship at the end. Not that I mind, and that's certainly Quinn's style. It just would've been nice if someone's ending was a bit more bittersweet.

Overall, this is a great, entertaining book that sheds a light on the million dollar question that we are still trying to answer today: who do we forgive? If you're a Kate Quinn fan or a WW2 historical lit fan, I highly recommend this book. ( )

I found this book started slowly and nearly put it down. Continuing on was worth it as the story got more compelling with each chapter. 2 seemingly unrelated storylines were ultimately brought together in a satisfying albeit predictable ending. ( )

Kate Quinn follows her word-of-mouth bestseller, “The Alice Network,” with another compulsively readable historical novel about courageous women who dare to break the mold of what’s expected of them. At the heart of “The Huntress” is a woman accused of committing unspeakable war crimes against children in Poland during World War II. The novel begins with this unnamed woman on the run, afraid that her past has finally caught up with her....From there, the novel breaks into three story lines, told by three narrators, in alternating timelines. Quinn effectively uses this structure to deliberately reveal the past in an increasingly suspenseful story about characters who will risk their lives to track down Lorelei Vogt, known as the Huntress.....Quinn braids these story lines and characters together in a seamless narrative that builds toward a dramatic showdown....“The Huntress” is sure to be a hit with fans of commercial World War II fiction. Nina’s and Jordan’s narratives truly sing in this powerful novel about unusual women facing sometimes insurmountable odds with grace, grit, love and tenacity.
