I am reviewing a copy of Where David Threw Stones through The Book Whisperer and Netgalley:

This book will transport you back to West Germany in 1968.

After ten year old David Saidel’s parents are murdered by Neo-Nazis, he is sent to live with his grandfather in the anti-Semitic village of Brennenbach. David, miserable and lonely, finds solace in his kindly Grandpa Ernst, who has one strict rule: never go out after midnight.

When David breaks curfew to search for his missing dog, he discovers why Ernst is so serious about his curfew: Brennenbach is cursed. When midnight strikes, the town is thrown back to 1943, the height of Hitler’s reign.

During the Cursed Hours the Nazi ghosts that infest Brennenbach are just as dangerous as they were in life. They’re hunting for David because they think David is the last remaining member of the Kogan family. Whatever happened to the Kogans caused the Curse, and David and his grandfather won’t be safe until he finds a way to end it.

Through the help of a little girl named Maria Rahm, the daughter of a vicious Nazi Lieutenant, he sets out to uncover the truth behind the Kogans.

Can he end the Curse that plagues the town of Brennenbach before it claims another victim?

If you are looking for a unique fantasy novel then I highly recommend Where David Threw Stones€!

Five out of five stars!
