You know when you begin a series and can't wait for the next book to come out? As soon as I saw A Song Unheard was available for review from Bethany House, I requested it as quick as you can click a link! Thankfully I was chosen to do a review


If Betraying Her Heart Means Saving Countless Lives, Will She Find the Courage?
Willa Forsythe is both a violin prodigy and top-notch thief, which makes her the perfect choice for a critical task at the outset of World War I--to secure a crucial cypher key from a famous violinist currently in Wales. 

Lukas De Wilde has enjoyed the life of fame he's won--until now, when being recognized nearly gets him killed. Everyone wants the key to his father's work as a cryptologist. And Lukas fears that his mother and sister, who have vanished in the wake of the German invasion of Belgium, will pay the price. The only distraction he finds from his worry is in meeting the intriguing and talented Willa Forsythe.

But danger presses in from every side, and Willa knows what Lukas doesn't--that she must betray him and find that key, or her own family could pay the same price his surely has.

My review:

I know some people loved this book. Well, I didn't. I LOVED - LOVED - LOVED this book! When I started reading A Song Unheard, I was drawn back to the early 1900's and espionage again. Willa is approached by Mr. V just like her sister was in A Name Unknown. Somehow that Mr. V knows the right sibling for the next job he has in mind. Of course before I was even finished with the book I was wondering (and hoping) that Barclay would be next.

As I started into Willa's story, I became more invested in the characters than I thought. I really enjoyed Lukas' sister because she was wise beyond her years, but also incredibly smart. I didn't know anything about Germany invading Belgium, so it was sad to envision what they were all going through at the time and how dangerous it was.

The intrigue of Willa having to learn about a cypher key, and how others wanted her to get it for the Germans, had me sitting on the edge of my seat. Mr. V might've been fine in book 1, but maybe he wasn't one of the good guys after all. Maybe he was a double agent. I think you almost have to question everyone when it comes to spying!

A Song Unheard had everything I look for in a novel. The pace was really good (I wanted to finish it and not finish it at the same time), the characters were so believable, and the storyline was a new one to me! I'm looking forward to book 3, and honestly, it can't get here quick enough.

this sounds like a nice fast paced, edge of your seat type of book. I will have to add it to my need to read pile.

This would be a new storyline for me also. I like books with some history in it. I also like books I can’t put down! Thank you for sharing! This book sounds interesting to me!
