#BookReview: The Spy with the Red Balloon (The Balloonmakers, #2) by @bibliogato #TheSpyWithTheRedBalloon #NetGalley

About the Book:

Siblings Ilse and Wolf hide a deep secret in their blood: with it, they can work magic. And the government just found out.Blackmailed into service during World War II, Ilse lends her magic to America’s newest weapon, the atom bomb, while Wolf goes behind enemy lines to sabotage Germany’s nuclear program.

 It’s a dangerous mission, but if Hitler were to create the bomb first, the results would be catastrophic.

When Wolf’s plane is shot down, his entire mission is thrown into jeopardy. Wolf needs Ilse’s help to develop the magic that will keep him alive, but with a spy afoot in Ilse’s laboratory, the letters she sends to Wolf begin to look treasonous. 

Can Ilse prove her loyalty—and find a way to help her brother—before their time runs out?

My Review: This was an amazing blend of fantasy and and history. I do think that the cover to this one does not do this story justice.  The writing was so well done that I just could not put this one down.  This book is set during WWII and omg the again the author did a wonderful job with the entire thing.  I did think that it could have been just a little bit longer as the ending felt a little speedy. If you are looking for a new series to die hard to fall for this is one you should totally look into this one.  

Do I Recommend this book? OMG YES
