A deadly race to stay ahead of the Nazi war machine will test them all.
Tensions are high across Europe in the beginning of May, 1940. Hitler's forces have overrun Norway, and it's only a matter of time before his focus turns to France. When Evelyn Ainsworth is sent to Brussels, she understands all too well the risk of remaining too long. The MI6 agent's goal is to get in, pick up a package, meet with her Soviet contact, and get out again as quickly as possible.
But even the best laid plans can go awry.
Obersturmbannführer Hans Voss knows the stolen blueprints from Stuttgart are in Brussels and is determined to hunt down the courier. But when the German armies invade Belgium, the city is thrown into chaos, complicating his chances of locating the missing package.
Armed with the packet that has already cost men their lives, Evelyn finds herself in another race to safely reach France while Hitler's army unleashes a storm against the Low Countries. But her flight is complicated by an enigmatic young Belgian who offers assistance—and carries a secret of his own.
Pursued by two of the Third Reich's most lethal agents, Evelyn must trust her instincts to survive.
Or fall to the Iron Storm.
Evelyn just makes it
If you have been reading this series, you know Evelyn Ainworths has come down from the heights of high society to the trenches of espionage to help stop the Nazi war machine. With a minimum amount of training by Mi6, she has still manage to gather a great deal of intelligence from the Nazi's and as a consequence, has the meanest and deadliness of the Nazi's after her. I love all of CW Brownings books and in this one, she continues to show us how human, capable and determined Evelyn is to protect Britain. Her mission in this book is simple: meet a courier, get the plans to secret Nazi muntions plants and bring them back to Mi6. Get this book and find out how it turns out. You will never be disappointed reading anything by CW Browning.
👍👍 as usual!
I have read the previous books in this series and was eagerly awaiting for this next book. Evelyn is recuperating after her last mission and is on to the next. She is a smart heroine that’s winging it and still learning how to deal with her role in the war. It doesn’t disappoint. It’s well written. It grabs and holds my attention and I get absorbed in it wondering what’s going to happen next. I like the historical storyline that envelops Evelyns life. The characters,including the bad guys ,and their roles in the book make this series interesting. Although this isn’t a true story it takes place at a time that was crucial in world history and feels as though this could have been a couriers/spy’s actual experience. Being an avid reader of a little of everything, mostly the romance genre, I do love a book of substance also. This is one of those. Glad I found this series and author. It’s best to start at the beginning with the first book and well worth it. I received an ARC copy of Iron Storm for this review and no other compensation. I bought all the earlier books in this series and a few others by this author. I hope to start the Exit series soon. Happy Reading!!
I am always on board to read the latest book from this author. The Iron Storm hits all the buttons and was definitely an all night read. Evelyn is at it again as she races to get to safety in Paris. With the Germans on her trail and important information hidden on her person you will be on the edge of your seat and wishing you had book 5 on your nightstand.
