Every Thursday I’m going to be putting the spotlight on a book series and talking about it. It might be one I’ve read, one I’m reading, or one I haven’t gotten to yet, depending on what I feel like talking about that week. This week’s series is a duology and historical.
The Prisoner of Night and Fog duology by Anne Blankman
Both books are released, own in hardcover.
I devoured the first book as an ARC and it was a long, long wait for the second one. It’s still one of my go-to recs for anyone reading in the YA section looking for something historical, or willing to try it. I loved the concept, the way real history was incorporated into the fictional plot, and it was executed so well.
Favourite character: Gretchen. One of the rare times my favourite character is the main character but seeing her begin to question everything and grow into a strong woman was amazing.
Favourite book: Prisoner of Night and Fog. It’s a 50/50 pick for a duology but the first one wins out. I found it to be slightly stronger than the second since this is the one where Gretchen begins to question everything she knows and becomes more open to listening to other people’s opinions.
Author status: Semi-buy. I love this duo but Traitor Angels was a little disappointing so it might take one more solid book to become auto-buy.
Next up from Anne Blankman: I was unable to find anything listed. She’s not very active on social media and Goodreads and her website don’t have any upcoming books:(
