Told in three narratives, The Huntress introduces us to Nina Markova, a Russian female bomber pilot; Ian Graham, a British journalist who tracks down war criminals for prosecution; and Jordan McBride, a 17 year old aspiring photographer who doesn't quite buy into the persona her new stepmother is putting forth.
The character development throughout the novel is phenomenal. I too vacillated back and forth between whether Jordan's stepmother was truly evil or just misunderstood. The ending of the book really solidified the entire story for me and I particularly enjoyed the author's note detailing her research. It was a truly captivating story that provided me with another viewpoint into the war and all the lives touched by it. A solid four star rating from me.
I received this book courtesy of William Morrow/Harper Collins through Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review.
