The Huntress by Kate Quinn Book Review

Rating: 5 out of 5.

About: Nina and Ian have both been impacted by a ruthless killer known as The Huntress. They have yet to track her down. Suddenly, it seems luck is on their side. The Huntress seems to have settled down in America. She seems to be the perfect wife to her new husband, but her stepdaughter, Jordan feels that something is very off about her.

Plot: I really enjoyed this story. I can’t say that I was hooked on the book from the very beginning. In fact, I actually had to start it over a few times because I got bored enough to drift off and miss important parts of the story.

Characters: I really connected and related to Nina more than any of the other characters. I also had a strong connection to Jordan as well. They were so strong and independent. It was inspirational! Ian was pretty amazing as well. I loved his quirky nature.

Narration: This book was narrated by Saskia Maarleveld. She did an awesome job. I really loved her accents for all of the characters. She made the characters come to life. I look forward to hearing other audiobooks narrated by her.

Suggestions: Maybe a bit of a cheat sheet at the beginning. LOL

Recommend: Yes!


Grief was beginning to be overlaid by the first layer of skin and time. Jordan supposed that layer would get thicker and thicker and in a way she was sorry. Grief cut, but it also made you remember.

Maybe it is all rotten, but if the good ones leave, who’s there to make it better after the war? I know why you have to leave, Ninochka. It’s leave or nothing. But I can’t give up my homeland and my oath for love. That’s the kind of thing that makes men say little princesses have no place at the front.

Because we can keep on. Others, they try keeping on, they just…” she mimed an explosion. “It’s too much for them. They come to pieces. Not us. Hunters, they are different. We can’t stop. Not for bad sleep or parachute dreams or people who say we should want peace and babies instead. It’s a world full of mad wolves, and we hunt them til we die

We’re standing in the ashes of a war like no other—if we don’t try harder to see the shades of gray involved, we’ll find ourselves in the thick of a new one.

  1. Hey, thanks for this! The Huntress is also one of my favourites! Love your succinct yet hit-the-nail-on-the-head kind of review and yeah I do agree the front was a little draggy but it was worth it for all the action afterwards 🙂
