The Brass Compass (Brass Compass Series Book 1) by Ellen Butler – Review by Micalah Weatherholtz

The Brass CompassThe Brass Compass by Ellen Butler
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I first came across Ellen’s book Operation Blackbird which was actually book two in the Brass Compass series but I’m the type that always likes to check out previous books in a series before just in case they are interconnected. Book number one was this book The Brass Compass and the premise of it was right up my alley considering the historical fiction aspect, and it being based during WW II. The characters from book one are in book 2 and sometimes they will reference events that occur in the other but I don’t feel that it’s absolutely necessary to read them in order as they are each their own separate stories with the focus being on their own characters, following a different story line, and a different historical event. I throughly enjoyed The Brass Compass and fell in love with its storyline, and it’s characters. I thought it flowed well, was incredibly well-written, and I enjoyed the twists, and turns. The camaraderie and relationships between the characters in such tense times with the added touch of a little romance was just lovely. Whenever I opened my kindle I was wholly absorbed into Lily, a U.S spy, and Charlie, a major in the U.S Military, and their world. I just didn’t want to stop reading. I eagerly look forward to book two and other books written by this author.
