Teaser Tuesday #51: Prisoner of Night and Fog By Anne Blankman

Teaser Tuesday
is a weekly bookish meme hosted by MizB @ Should Be Reading, where you share one to two teasers from your current book. Sound like something your interested in?
Then do the following:
  • Grab your current read. Open to a random page 
Share 2 "Teaser" Sentences from somewhere on that page.
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! Make sure that what you share doesn't give too much away! You don't want to ruin the book for others!
  • Share the author & Title too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR list if they like your Teaser! 


  Hey Guys, 
 I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend? Mine was great! I spent lots of alone time with my kids now that my husband is out of town. Anyways, this weeks TT is from a book that I already read and LOVED (See my review HERE). But I am beta reading THE VAULT at the moment, and I don't think the author wants teasers out just yet. So I decided to do my TT on a book that I've already read, but didn't make it into my TT for whatever reason. So check out this weeks TT and let me know what you think in the comment section. Be sure to link me up to your TT or weekly memo so I can come visit you!


HAPPY READING! :-)




Here's My #50th Teaser Tuesday From PRISONER OF NIGHT AND FOG!








Prisoner of Night


& Fog 





Review: Prisoner of Night and Fog by Anne Blankman
Prisoner of Night and Fog
 

(Prisoner of Night and Fog #1)
Genres: YA, Historical, Mystery
Published: April 22nd, 2014

In 1930s Munich, danger lurks behind dark corners, and secrets are buried deep within the city. But Gretchen Müller, who grew up in the National Socialist Party under the wing of her "uncle" Dolf, has been shielded from that side of society ever since her father traded his life for Dolf's, and Gretchen is his favorite, his pet.

Uncle Dolf is none other than Adolf Hitler.

And Gretchen follows his every command.

Until she meets a fearless and handsome young Jewish reporter named Daniel Cohen. Gretchen should despise Daniel, yet she can't stop herself from listening to his story: that her father, the adored Nazi martyr, was actually murdered by an unknown comrade. She also can't help the fierce attraction brewing between them, despite everything she's been taught to believe about Jews.

As Gretchen investigates the very people she's always considered friends, she must decide where her loyalties lie. Will she choose the safety of her former life as a Nazi darling, or will she dare to dig up the truth—even if it could get her and Daniel killed?

From debut author Anne Blankman comes this harrowing and evocative story about an ordinary girl faced with the extraordinary decision to give up everything she's ever believed . . . and to trust her own heart instead.

Chapter 16: Page 131

A HARSH CRY BURST FROM HER THROAT. DEAD. SHE laid him on the bed, running shaking hands over his body, as if she could somehow resurrect him with her touch. 








 Chapter 43: Page 370

Fists meet flesh with sickening crunches. Clenched hands rammed into faces and stomachs, and everywhere the air filled with cries and shouts. In an instant, the milling crowds had transformed into a mass of twisting bodies.







Anne Blankman may have been meant to be a writer because her parents named her for Anne of Green Gables. She grew up in an old house with gables (gray, unfortunately) in upstate New York. When she wasn't writing or reading, she was rowing on the crew team, taking ballet lessons, fencing and swimming. She graduated from Union College with degrees in English and history, which comes in handy when she writes historical fiction.

After earning a master's degree in information science, Anne began working as a youth services librarian. Currently, she lives in southeastern Virginia with her family. When she's not writing young adult fiction, she's playing with her daughter, training for races with her husband, working at her amazing library branch, learning to knit (badly), and reading.

Anne Blankman is the author of PRISONER OF NIGHT AND FOG, the first in a three-book deal slated for publication in spring 2014 from Balzer + Bray | HarperCollins. She is represented by Tracey Adams of Adams Literary.
