  • Gosh this book made me feel a lot of feels that were both sad, happy, mournful, exhilarating & thoughtful. It was both captivating and empowering to read this novel. Although it was slow in the middle, during the last 50 pages I didn't want it to end. I would love to see a novella about Daniel & Gretchen 20 years in the future since there are some loose ends (like their families and friends lives) I want clarified since I'm really curious. 4.25/5 stars, loved this book just like I did th [...]


  • This is such a unique and gripping story. I loved it just as much as the first one. Video review to come!


  • (Source: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to HarperCollins and Edelweiss.)This was an enjoyable sequel, and I didn’t expect the murder mystery aspect.I liked Gretchen and Daniel in this book, they were both self-sacrificing both for each other and for the greater good, and they never lost sight of what was important. They really were a bit of a Romeo and Juliet though!The storyline in this was pretty good, and I didn’t expect the murder-myster [...]


  • “I know how they'll feel. As though the world should stop rotating or the sun shining or the rain from coming down. When those things do happen, they won't be able to believe it. Because they'll think that the world should be different, now that their loved one has been killed. But the world won't be different. They will.”These books are one of the best historical ficton books I've ever read.The amount of things I have learned from these books are uncountable.


  • Prisoner of Night and Fog, Anne Blankman’s incredible debut and part one of her duology, seemed at times too good to be true. Extensively researched, clever, and deeply emotional, it explored a time some would rather leave forgotten, the darkest time in Germany’s history. Blankman gave us front row seats to Hitler’s rise to power, seen through the eyes of one of his darlings, a young girl he’d taken under his wing and treated as a favorite niece. But the events in Prisoner of Night and F [...]


  • 4.5 stars. I really just love how the author weaves true historical facts and events in with wonderful fictional characters that you really care about. Characters that don't make it through everything unscathed, they suffer tragedies and losses and even permanent debilitating injuries. And for the most part, they do act the way you would think people really act. Even if there is still some of the silly stuff that people in love in books seem to do. And it was like watching the Titanic movie, you [...]


  • 4.5-5 starsPrisoner of Night and Fog was Anne Blankman’s highly impressive debut and one of my favorite books of last year. I have been dying to read the sequel ever since finishing it. Daniel and Gretchen are characters I’ve grown to truly care about, and I knew they still had a difficult road ahead of them. She is the niece of Adolf Hitler and he is a Jewish boy. Though they escaped from Germany together at the end of PoNaF, they are living with borrowed names, and Daniel, once a passionat [...]


  • A bit slow to start, and more romance than I would have liked (with my stone cold heart) but still suspenseful from about half way onwards, and filled with horrible Nazi brutality. I especially like reading the Author Notes at the end once I'm done, because the plot in Blankman's stories are so closely interwoven with history and real life events that it's impossible not to have another level of respect for her storytelling even after reading.


  • Conspiracy of Blood and Smoke by Anne Blankman - 4.5/5 starsAlright, I'll admit it! Historical fiction is officially my favorite genre and I loved the way the author added all these fictitious elements in the book to make the plot extremely action packed! In the conclusion to this epic duology, Gretchen and Daniel must return to Germany after their near escape from Hitler in the first book. They managed to escape the grueling tortures that were in their way and escaped to England where Gretchen [...]


  • Actual rating 4.25 stars-------------Anne Blankman can write. I loved being back in the story with Gretchen and Daniel There were plenty of heart-stopping moments. The strongest part of the book for me was 50-90%. I thought it started a bit slow but really pulled me in and while I liked the ending, I'm not sure it was realistic. Overall though, I highly recommend this dualogy and I can't wait to see what Anne writes next!

  • An Electronic Advanced Reader Copy was provided by the publisher via Edelweiss for review. Quotes have been pulled from an ARC and may be subject to change.I was perusing Edelweiss for some book covers when I decided to checkout the review copies. HarperTeen always has e-ARCs for review and I always want each and every one of them but when I saw this book there, I knew I had to read it already.This book It had my heart pumping and my forehead sweating.

  • ”Dictators ride to and fro on tigers from which they dare not dismount. And the tigers are getting hungry.”- Winston ChurchillSetting:Oxford, England; Munich, Germany and Berlin, Germany; 1934Coverly Love?:Fun fact; the model on the cover is also the photographer!! And her self-portrait is actually quite nice. However, I’m not a big fan of extreme close-ups of faces, if you know what I mean. I don’t want to see all the pores of your skin and the red lines in your eyes. So while the model [...]


  • I was in awe of Blankman’s work with Prisoner of Night and Fog, the way she was able to weave a story of everything that had taken place in Germany back in the 1930’s and at the same time make a wonderful story of Daniel and Gretchen fit into it was amazing. I fell in love with Gretchen and Daniel’s story; I wanted them to finally live their own lives and not constantly checking over their shoulder. So with the way things ended in Prisoner of Night and Fog, I was left with the hope that th [...]


  • I found this sequel to be even more rewarding than its predecessor. Gretchen's voice is far more developed and mature, though just as vulnerable, which enabled me to instantly connect with her in a way I hadn't in Blankman's debut. What's more, the romantic tribulations that she and Daniel must face alongside the thrill of the historical time period they are thrown into made for a truly enlightening and exhilarating read. Extremely well-written and sure to satisfy fans of the first novel, this i [...]



  • This book! My goodness, THIS BOOK! Last year, I read Prisoner of Night and Fog and fell head over heels in love with it. It was rich in history, was written masterfully and had a cast of characters that basically settled in my heart. There was absolutely no doubts that I would be reading Conspiracy of Blood and Smoke, but did I think it would live up to all of my expectations? Maybe not, but Anne Blankman just blew me away with this phenomenal sequel that has rocketed her to the top of my favori [...]


  • I'll confess something right off the bat: I don't think I can honestly say I liked The Conspiracy of Blood and Smoke as much as I did its predecessor. That isn't to say it wasn't just as astutely researched as Prisoner of Night and Fog - because it definitely was - but there were some elements that didn't shine through here.The Conspiracy of Blood and Smoke picks up a few months after Prisoner of Night and Fog has ended. Gretchen, who grew up under the protection of her "Uncle" Hitler, and Danie [...]


  • My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars‘It was starting. What Hitler had always promised – the Party and Germany were becoming one. The union that she had once thought sounded so perfect. Now it terrified her.’The year is 1933. Gretchen and Daniel have managed to extricate themselves from the dangers of Germany and have been slowly rebuilding their lives in England. Their lives are far from perfect and they both miss their families, but they’re at least safe. When Daniel receives a telegram with terri [...]


  • I received a free copy via edelweiss for review purposesIn Conspiracy of Blood and Smoke Gretchen has settled into her new home in England, but follows Daniel back to Germany when he receives a telegram telling of a family emergency. Not long after, Daniel is wanted for murder. Gretchen has to call upon her old Nazi allies whilst trying to avoid getting caught by Hitler, and both Gretchen and Daniel stumble upon a dark conspiracy taking root in the heart of Germany. Conspiracy of Blood and Smoke [...]


  • thedailyprophecy/2I fell in love with Prisoner of night and fog. Anne wrote such an engaging story and she managed to do the same with Conspiracy of blood and smoke. Her research resulted in an interesting story about the rise of Hitler. Most historical books take place in World War II, so I love the setting where we see how Hitler takes over with his charisma and sneaky manipulation.Gretchen and Daniel have fled Germany and are trying to set up a new life in England, until Daniel gets a note th [...]


  • 4 STARS FOR "CONSPIRACY OF BLOOD AND SMOKE" BY ANNE BLANKMANAn excellent conclusion to the duology. I liked the first book a tad more, but I was extremely happy with the development that occurred here. Anne Blankman really understands her characters, and has clearly put a lot of time and work into deciding how the times they lived in contributes to who they are. Gretchen and Daniel have a strong relationship here, one that's embedded in a lot of trust and respect after going through so much toge [...]


  • Brilliant YA Historical fiction Sequel to “Prisoner of Night and Fog”, Anne Blankman’s latest book follows Gretchen and Daniel to apparent safety in Britain. Extensively researched, intelligent, and moving, Blankman delivers an exciting ride as Gretchen and Daniel return to Germany and try to stop Hitler’s rise to absolute power. Whilst the book is fiction many of the historical events are true are obviously well researched. They are delivered in a compelling way which makes this book hi [...]




  • My thanks to Balzer + Bray------------------------------------------------------------------Point of View: Single (Gretchen)Writing: Third Person | Past TenseSetting: England/GermanyGenre: Young Adult | Historical Fiction------------------------------------------------------------------The story in this book takes place 17 months after its predecessor, Prisoner of Night and Fog.I was not a fan of historical fiction, but I have read a few good ones that by now have changed how I felt about the bo [...]


  • Seriously, what a fantastic title. If that title doesn't make you want to grab a copy of this book as soon as possible, I don't know what will. I thought "Prisoner of Night and Fog" was pretty freaking good, but damn, "Conspiracy of Blood and Smoke" is one of the best book titles I've ever come across.Well, anyway, moving on from the title: a very decent follow up to Prisoner of Night and Fog, I thoroughly enjoyed Conspiracy of Blood and Smoke.I feel like perhaps this sequel was slightly lacking [...]


  • 3.5 stars. Not a perfect, but a solid read. I actually enjoyed it more than book one! It did its job, namely to keep me entertained (thank you, kindle app) when I had nothing to do and left my book at home. To be frank, some scenes and plot "twists" were over the top and predictable, but once again, I appreciated the author's note and bibliography in the appendix.I firmly believe that books dealing with Nazi Germany should also consider the road that led up to WW2, like Blankman did with Hitler' [...]
