Oaths of Blood and Wine
"Funny, a little word like hope, when good men died young and bloody."
Nazi-Occupied France is a country divided. World War II rages on, but the French must sit idly by as the Germans take their food, their homes, and their freedom. Trust is a rare occurrence; espionage and lies are tearing Europe apart. And American soldier Percy Caldwell is dropped right in the middle of it.
Armed with minimal French, a fake German ID, and a motley crew, Percy must find and protect a famed Nazi-killer, who just happens to be France's greatest hope at liberation.
Astride Laurent is a ballerina-turned-vigilante with a fire in her eyes and revenge in her bones. She's captured and interrogated by the Gestapo, but there's a soft spot among the cold, cruel Germans- a soldier named Matthias Heidenreich.
Percy, Astride, and Matthias must race against a fascist nation hellbent on killing them all in order to win a war. Between hidden Jews, French traitors, and a borderline sadistic SS major, it's not going to be easy. Inspired by novels like Code Name Verity and The Nightingale, Oaths of Blood and Wine is an action-packed story rich with conflict and secrecy.
