Among the Red Stars by Gwen C. Katz
Since debut author Gwen C. Katz helped me to come up with the idea for the #ARCstravaganza meme a couple months back when I was talking about having an ARC Extravaganza weekend on Twitter, I felt it was only fitting to feature her amazing novel Among the Red Stars as our first #ARCstravaganza book.
I won’t be posting my full review and interview with Gwen about Among the Red Stars until we get a little closer to the release date, but I will certainly tell you now that this was a five star read for me. I found it not only entertaining but highly inspirational! Check out this guest post with Gwen that discusses the INCREDIBLE, real life airwomen who inspired Among the Red Stars here!
About Among the Red Stars
World War Two has shattered Valka’s homeland of Russia, and Valka is determined to help the effort. She knows her skills as a pilot rival the best of the men, so when an all-female aviation group forms, Valka is the first to sign up.
Flying has always meant freedom and exhilaration for Valka, but dropping bombs on German soldiers from a fragile canvas biplane is no joyride. The war is taking its toll on everyone, including the boy Valka grew up with, who is fighting for his life on the front lines.
As the war intensifies and those around her fall, Valka must decide how much she is willing to risk to defend the skies she once called home.
