Writing:- 5/5

Overall rating:- 5/5

A bloodcurdling drama unravels in the shadow of Mengele’s dark, twisted obsession.

Ernst must face his nemesis as he battles to save Shoshana, Bluma, Perle, and ultimately, his heart.

Marcel Petoit has weaponized Gisele’s dark secrets. Will she escape his evil grip?

Will Herschel and Naomi ever see their girls again?

The Auschwitz Twins is a thrilling finish to Roberta Kagan’s gut-wrenching WW2 historical series set within the grim walls of the dreaded Nazi killing floor.

This is the third book of the Auschwitz series and the final book of the series

PS, it would be better if you read the second book of the series so you could be familiar with the background before reading this third book.

The story continues with Ernst bringing his new wife Gisele to the house where Ernst is working as a doctor at Auschwitz under Dr. Mengele known as the “Angel of Death”. Gisele meanwhile is trying to find a way to talk to Dr. Mengele who she believed is her biological father. Eli helped Naomi to escape and while running, she meets a deserted soldier Friedrich with whom she developed a friendship. Shoshana and her sisters are at the Auschwitz camp and Shoshana and Ernst become friends.

The story is beautifully written and is emotional. To me the most interesting part was reading about Ernst’s slow developing friendship with Shoshana and about Gisele how she used Ernst and at the same time have mixed feelings towards him. Overall, the medical experiments that were carried out on the twins, Dr. Mengele’s cold hearted nature and indifference to death was too shocking and disturbing to read, and the fact that it happened in real life…too emotional to read.

Overall, this book will make you cry and emotional, and will keep you on the edge–worth five stars.

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

I’m an American writer of Jewish and Romany decent. I write Historical Fiction and Historical Romance, most of which is set during the holocaust. Although I never discount the horrors of the time period, the main focus of my work is on ordinary people who prove to be strong heroic characters in unfathomable circumstances.
