The Huntress

The HuntressThe Huntress by Kate Quinn
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

“Nina took the air, feeling her arms disappear into the wings, her blood into the fuel line.”

If you love historical fiction, you will love this. This is not so much a story about a search for The Huntress, but more about Nina Markova, one of the famed Russian bomber pilots known as the Night Witches. She is feral. She is strong. She is undeterred. She is kind of crazy, and I LOVED her. With great writing and a solid plot, this is a page-turner. I was less impressed with Annelise and would have loved to hear more of her back story and evil heart. The story could have also been about 100 pages shorter. Nonetheless, four stars for Nina Markova.
