In the early days of World War II, the Lang family lost everything. Eighty years later, it’s time to take it back.

The Nazis have taken control of Austria, and wealthy widower Leopold Lang faces a difficult decision: join the ranks of the foreign power that has taken over his homeland or flee with his children to safety. Leopold makes his choice—but too late. His family is ripped apart, never to be reunited. But decades later, fate brings together the descendants of this broken dynasty in the place where it all began—Falcon Point.

Anna, Cole, and Tess have never met, each relying on fractured pieces of information to understand their Austrian heritage. But when unforeseen opportunities draw these Lang cousins to Falcon Point, they soon discover they are not alone in their quest to claim the coveted property and the fabled treasure hidden within. Unfortunately, another claimant, one with a much darker heritage, is determined to eliminate the Lang family once and for all.

Not really sure if this is based on true story but I was literally hooked from the beginning to the end.

It’s the beginning over the World War II, the Nazis have taken over Austria. Leopold Lang must make a choice–join the ranks of the new government, or flee the homeland. He eventually makes his decision, costing his life and his family being ripped apart. Langs owned the Falcon Point but soon never able to claim the property.

Eighty years later, Anna, Tess and Cole from three different countries reunite together to claim this family property. They are cousins but do not know that they are related to each other. But there’s someone who is determined at any costs not to handover the property to them.

This is very different from the usual historical fiction that I read based on WWII and Holocaust. The story was intense and the writing pulled me into the story and I kept turning the page, wondering what is going to happen next. Will the cousins finally claim the property? I was almost at the edge of the seat as I read the book — kudos to the authors’ writing style! The ending was predictable but a bit unexpected.

Overall, this is more like a historical fiction thriller that is unputdownable and will keep you hooked until the end–worth a complete five stars!

Many thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for the ARC. The review is based on my honest opinion only.
