A Game Of Lies (Hannah Vogel, #3)A Game Of Lies by Rebecca Cantrell
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book is probably my favourite in the series so far, with more mystery for me than the other two combined and a great deal more drama.

I devoured it completely and loved it. I love the way history is melded with fiction and I drank it down like it was the richest of drinks.

The drama is heart wrenching and the stakes are definitely higher. Hannah is one of my favourite female characters in fiction, because she makes mistakes and is not infallible but she is soon ready to admit it.

A Night of Long Knives by Rebecca Cantrell

A Night Of Long Knives (Hannah Vogel, #2)A Night Of Long Knives by Rebecca Cantrell
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

While I did not enjoy this book as much as the first one it was still very easy to sink into and Hannah is still one of the most formidable female characters I’ve read in a while.

She is strong, and yet at times her vulnerability is what draws me in more than anything else. Her life is one of quickly made decisions and thinking on her feet.

The suspense in this novel is rich, and yet it didn’t capture my attention as much as the first however it remains an interesting piece of historical fiction which had me reaching for more information about the time and finding only that Rebecca Cantrell’s research is immaculate.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I did not expect to fall into this book at all. The subject matter initially left me feeling very aware of how this could be very poorly done.

Instead I found an enriching read with fully fleshed out characters. Hannah is definitely a female character to be proud of, displaying strength and vulnerability very realistically in situations which seem quite intense and are written in vivid detail.

The beauty in this is the way in which history is fleshed out with characters who feel as real as those who were actually there and using real people to make it all the more interesting.

This is a read for anyone who loves historical fiction.
