To sum up - a captivating supernatural thriller that makes you think.
We start in present day Berlin with a "Professor" known for his books on conspiracy theories. However, what he has in his brief case is so much more than what the pyramids represent or UFOs. What he carries is a dossier on Operation Tristan; Hitler's secret weapon. When a fan of the professor's hacks into his computer to find what he is working on, he is shocked by what he finds and alerts the United States government to the situation. No one can know what is inside the briefcase; in fact, the president doesn't even know what it entails. The CIA attempts to thwart the professor's plan to release the information publicly and a set of events occurs that has you wondering what is so important. What is Operation Tristan? The scene then changes to Berlin, 1945. The German army is losing the war and Hitler will do anything -anything- to stop the Red Army from taking over.
Lee's writing is superb. He details the atrocities of the war in horrific detail without being overly gory. The interaction between the soldiers was realistic and reminds the reader that not everyone was an automaton; that people did what they had to in order to survive. Hitler is portrayed as a manic, unstable man who wants nothing more than to see the world burn. The glimpse into his mind is frightening. The vampires were created in the traditional form: they had fangs, no reflection, and incredible speed and strength. And even though they looked human, they were anything but. The story is told from many points of view, which I am generally not a fan of, but Lee's transitions were clearer than some.
Overall, My Immortal was a suspenseful, thrilling read that will keep you on the edge of your seat, and if you are like me biting off all your fingernails in the process! Through war ravaged Germany, the story unfolds and you will find yourself immersed in Sebastian and Eva's plight. I recommend to history buffs, conspiracy theorists and horror fans alike.
FTC Advisory: I received this book from BBT in exchange for an honest review. I am never paid or compensated in any way for my reviews. No backroom deals or whispered promises are made.
This novel is intense! Rudnicki takes the traditional vampire story and turns it on its ear. The main story is set in Berlin during the closing hours of World War Two. It's main characters are a squad of German soldiers who encounter a beautiful vampire and those who would control her destiny. On one hand, her survival will ensure the victory of Nazi Germany, but on the other hand her death would be a great tragedy to Vampire society. More importantly, it would be a tragedy to the young German soldier who discovers her in the rubble of war-torn Berlin.
This book was a lot of fun to read, and although a bloody romp through the streets of Berlin in April 1945, it is often thought-provoking. The ending will surprise you and is a perfect setup for future novels in this series. I have become a fan of Mr. Rudnicki, and I eagerly await more from this promising young author.
