The Only Thing to Fear

We rated this book:


The Nazis have won WWII. With the help of advanced science and human experimentation, Adolf Hitler is able to beat the Allies and extend his German Empire across the Atlantic Ocean.

The current Führer, Adolf Hitler’s great-grandson, Dieter Hitler, controls the Nazi Empire. Zara, a half-Japanese cleaning girl, lives as an outcast in this society controlled by the Aryans, and yet, she yearns to be part of the resistance. Though she fears what becomes of those who oppose the Nazis, she is clearly is awe of the powers her uncle would rather she keep secret. The urge to fight the tyrants who belittle her mixed race, and make public executions a twisted form of intimidation and entertainment, consumes her. She is ready to believe all Germans are pure evil, until she meets Bastian, son of the Nazi Colonel Eckhhart.

Through a vivid reimagining of history, Caroline Tung Richmond tells the compelling story of a people oppressed. The excitement and fear that revolution brings is palpable throughout the story as events unfold in their sometimes-tragic glory. The Only Thing To Fear is a story of resilience; one that allows us to believe people will always rise for the right cause.
