Winner of The West Coast Review of Books 'Porgie' Award as one of the three best novels of the year and made into a TV Movie of The Week. Critics and reviewers compared Hitler's Daughter to the best works of Robert Ludlum, Len Deighton, Jack Higgins and Ken Follett, to wit: On a dark night in May, 1945, a pregnant woman is spirited out of Nazi…
Liam, a young loner boy who recently lost his father, is befriended by G, a different kind of Fairy from what he is use too, on top of Edinburgh's Calton Hill, when she breaks the strict rules of her dark, yet deeply troubled, magical world and intervenes after Liam is beaten up by a gang of school bullies.
Immediately G and Liam form a deep bond of friendship that takes them on a whirlwind adventure inside her fantastical, yet dark land, from the great cliffs of doom and the flesh eating forest to the great lake of Silence, and all the weird and wonderful creatures that inhabit them, from fire wolves and rainbow dragons to the more sinister lurking Weasel bats.
But G's world is no longer the tranquil haven it once was, and is now a world ruled by a tyrant Fairy King, his mysterious evil wizard, Zorn, and their army of Wretchids - a half goblin, half werewolf mix breed creature, with one hell of a bite.
Things take an even darker turn when Liam, looking to impress his new crush, the pretty and feisty Irish girl next door, Lucy, secretly brings her into the magical world, but against the wishes of his new fairy friend. And when the Fairy King captures the young trespassing teens, instead of executing them on the spot, he decides, with the help of his cruel wizard, to play a wicked and manipulative game, where the pair must complete a seemingly simple task in order to win back their freedom.
