WAITING ON WEDNESDAY #48: Prisoner of Night and Fog (Prisoner of Night and Fog #1) by Anne Blankman

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

In 1930s Munich, danger lurks behind dark corners, and secrets are buried deep within the city. But Gretchen Müller, who grew up in the National Socialist Party under the wing of her "uncle" Dolf, has been shielded from that side of society ever since her father traded his life for Dolf's, and Gretchen is his favorite, his pet.

Uncle Dolf is none other than Adolf Hitler.

And Gretchen follows his every command.

Until she meets a fearless and handsome young Jewish reporter named Daniel Cohen. Gretchen should despise Daniel, yet she can't stop herself from listening to his story: that her father, the adored Nazi martyr, was actually murdered by an unknown comrade. She also can't help the fierce attraction brewing between them, despite everything she's been taught to believe about Jews.

As Gretchen investigates the very people she's always considered friends, she must decide where her loyalties lie. Will she choose the safety of her former life as a Nazi darling, or will she dare to dig up the truth—even if it could get her and Daniel killed?

From debut author Anne Blankman comes this harrowing and evocative story about an ordinary girl faced with the extraordinary decision to give up everything she's ever believed . . . and to trust her own heart instead.

Expected publication: April 22nd 2014

I've not really read a lot of historical fiction before, but this book right here has me so intrigued and interested that I cannot wait to have it in my hands!!
What book are you patiently waiting for the release of?


  1. YES! I have the e-ARC for this one and I am SO excited! Historical fiction is generally not my thing but I've always loved learning about the Holocaust so I'm SUPER stoked. My WOW will be up tomorrow :)

  2. Awesome cover (and title)! This sounds like a great book, thanks for sharing!

  7. This was the ONLY book from last week's ARC party that I didn't get off Edelweiss. I've never been a big fan of historical fiction. I think I'll check out reviews on this one before I see if I'll read it. But the cover is beautiful!

    Mind checking out my WoW?


  8. I've noticed there has been more historical fictions recently. I'm debating whether or not I should download it on EW. I think I'll decide later on, I haven't read a historical fiction book in a while.

  9. Oooh, yes, this looks really cool! Great pick & thanks for visiting my WoW
