What if the Nazi's got away with the holocaust?

A great idea for a novel. This book gives a bit of an insight into what a Nazi win would possibly have been like. It starts with a mysterious death, but soon gets mysterious and dangerous for March. I was pleasantly surprised to explore the insight into the plot with a Germany that has hidden the holocuast from the world. There were a few small strings that the author dangled but didn't expand on further, especially the outcome for the UK. I got my interest piqued, but he didn't expand on this which bothered me. I would have really liked an epilogue.

I'm really enjoying the Grey series more than the Fifty series. The key character in this storyline is a broken man with a broken soul and his path back to redemption through his growing relationship with Ana. I'm throughly enjoying the insight into Christian's mind, his anxieties and his fears and his struggle with how to combat and defeat his demons. My heart swelled when he laid it all out to Ana at Escala and bared his darkest fears to her. He really is a small child trapped in the body of a grown man. I'm thoroughly looking forward to the final chapter in Christians story. If like me, you want to follow Christian's story rather than Ana's, you will enjoy this book!

If you could sum up The Last Hours in three words, what would they be?

death survival

Who was your favorite character and why?

Thaddeaus is a fish out of water in this society. His heritage is unclear and this intrigues me... I hope that this is resolved in book 2. He is a strong, ambitious and clever man rising to leadership in a time when everything known to their society is crumbling around them.

What three words best describe Helen Keeley’s performance?

A good clear performance. I was annoyed by the constant whining of Eleanor. I just sounded more annoying when actually voiced but she is a nasty little cow that you just feel like slapping!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I found it slow in parts and could not listen for endless hours.

Any additional comments?

I was looking for a single story book so got a shock when it finished with "to be continued".
Many of the story lines are resolved in this book so you don't get left completely hanging. I'm keen to know what becomes of the three central characters now so looking forward to book 2 and seeing how a new social order evolves in a countryside that is bereft of people.
It was really interesting to feel engaged in how perilous living was in these times. Death all around you and struggling with the social class dynamics of the time.

This is a nice little read as it follows a young lady seeking her own adventure in Scotland. It reminded me that we could all seek and have our own adventures. Outlander fans will relate to Emma’s quest. The narrator is goo but the accents are horrible, she would have been better to peak normally. Nice ending, I was hanging out for the connection early on.
