    1. Full disclosure: I was given a signed copy of this book, and I’ve met the author’s family, but that does not influence my review of this book.Like the previous books in the trilogy (although this can also be read as a standalone), it is a love story at its essence, but it is made more palatable for the (stereotypically) male reader with a war story, and there is plenty of intrigue and suspense as the characters are first separated and then thrust into a series of complex situations that are [...]


    2. This is the third book in this series. It began with Espionage. Each book has added another layer to understanding the horrors of living in Europe during WWII. I have enjoyed my journey with Peter Eddy and his amazing companions. They bravely go and help others, sacrificing themselves.The book begins as Peter is forced to go on another mission. He and Genevieve have just been reunited, into to be torn apart as each has a duty to fulfill. This book focuses on the civil war in Yugoslavia. This is [...]


    3. AN AMAZING STORY!"A little mystery, a little history, a little romance, and a lot of action, adventure, and suspense."I was fascinated by the many things that went along with the actual war battlesThe captures, the torture, the imprisonments, and the separation of loved ones.Just when you think this book could have come to a wonderful ending and the good guys have won there is a new TWIST that takes you through yet another captureother tortureother terrible situation.Not so many details that it [...]


    4. Deadly it is! First and foremost, this is an intricately weaved love story set during the final months of World War II in one of the forgotten yet turbulent theaters of the war—Yugoslavia. I applaud the author’s knowledge and research concerning the time era. I found myself falling back on books to verify the historical aspects—they are dead-on. Well done.I found the insertion of the characters faith refreshing. Most current works try to be politically correct in an effort to not offend. B [...]


    5. Wow! This historical fiction WWII book was amazing! I’ve read the first book, Espionage, and thought it was pretty good. But this one blew it out of the water…quite literally (I mean, it’s a war book, right?). Peter and Genevieve from Espionage are still in this book…and their tales will make your hair go gray. Seriously tense action, intrigue, death-defying danger (sorry. I couldn’t help the alliteration), and romance. I love the romance, but if you don’t, you can still read this bo [...]


    6. I really enjoy this time period. My grandpa served in WWII and it hits home to read about what these characters went through. I've never really known a lot about what was happening at the end of the war in the Yugoslavia area and this book mainly took place in that area. I loved learning more about this part of history, while being entertained with the events happening to some beloved characters.I don't know if it was my mood or my connection to these characters, but I was really touched and dra [...]


    7. I loved this book. It is the third one in the series, but you don't have to read them all to enjoy this book. You can tell the author spent a lot of time researching the war in Yugoslavia. It was nice to get a view of what happened when a leader went rogue, and the effect it had on people's lives, and the future of nations. Yugoslavia is a part of the war I knew very little about, and this book put me behind enemy lines, and allowed me to see how the every day people living in the war zone lived [...]


    8. Wow. This book is filled with action and heart-pounding twists. I feel like I learned so much about WWII, especially in this part of Europe (Yugoslavia). A.L. Sowards is so well versed on the war, strategies, weaponry, and different groups of people, I felt as if I was there. The details were amazing. And the characters were real, unique, and well fleshed out. Superbly done!!! This is the third book in a trilogy, but it can be easily read as a stand-alone. A great read!


    9. I've been enraptured by this entire series but this book is my absolute favorite. It's so intense and I adore each of the characters, especially Peter, Genevieve, and Jamie (can he please fall in love at some point?). I seriously bawled at one scene (won't tell you when, but it was terribly sad). It is World War II and the author shows exactly how horrible it would have been so you might want to be careful if you're squeamish. I absolutely loved this book and would highly recommend it.


    10. A very exciting, fast-paced story. It really brought home how brutal war is, how death can visit anyone, how ruthless the Nazis were, and the murky mess with the communists immediately after the war. Clearly AL Sowards did a phenomenal amount of research to make the story both accurate and gripping.


    11. A digital copy of this book was sent to me by the author in exchange for an honest review. Thank you, A.L.I read Deadly Alliance without having read the previous books in A.L. Sowards’ Espionage series, but this did not diminish my enjoyment of this book. It is easy enough to understand and the author subtly includes background information and backstories throughout the book, meaning that Deadly Alliance could be considered as a standalone.Deadly Alliance starts off with a powerful man named K [...]


    12. Deadly Alliance, the third and final installment of the Espionage series, takes place during the final year of WWII. Peter and Genevieve are the main characters, who both have way more war and espionage experience than any young person should. Almost as soon as they are reunited, the war separates them. Their duties take them far from each other, and one circumstance after another makes it almost certain they will never survive, let alone find each other again.Peter has several of his closest wa [...]


    13. “Deadly Alliance” is the final book in a trilogy, though it works just as well as a stand-alone novel (which is how I read it — I actually had no idea there were two other books). Like “An Ocean atween Us,” it was abundantly clear that Sowards had done her due diligence on the time and place she wrote about — World War II in Italy and Yugoslavia. The novel follows Peter Eddy and his commando team as they drop behind enemy lines, unaware that they’ve been deployed on a suicide missi [...]


    14. I've really enjoyed this series by A.L. Sowards. Historical Fiction is one of my favorite genres, and Sowards does a great job pulling the reader in.I read the last book in the series, Sworn Enemy, over a year ago, so it took a little bit to get caught back up on the story through details mentioned here and there.The story really keeps a reader interested by the twists and turns of war, and the different situations each of the characters is in. Although romance isn't the main focus of the novel, [...]


    15. Action PackedWhat was billed to be a short mission planned by a highly placed officer in the intelligence corps was really intended to send Peter and three other men to their deaths. Instead, prior wartime experience and a fortuitous run-in with Cheknik fighters helped them survive in the middle of the civil war in Yugoslavia while evading the Nazis. Meanwhile Gabrielle is pulled back into espionage work and finds herself fighting off an enemy intent on killing her while at the same time resisti [...]


    16. This book is listed as Historical Fiction but I am not sure how historical it really is. Yet the story was very interesting. I only just found out it was part of a series, so it does stand on its own. Peter and his team face terrible odds and everything that could go wrong on the mission does go wrong. I don't think the 'bad guy' was supposed to be a big secret because it was obvious from the start. Lots of plot twists and turns and several last minute saved from death scenes. I enjoyed it in th [...]


    17. This is the conclusion of a trilogy. Peter and Genevieve met in France & have been very active in the intelligence community. This wraps up the series nicely-finishing the stories of a lot of the people we have come to care about through all 3 of the books. Very similar to Sandra Gray's Traitor series. If you like WW2 stories, this one won't disappointnguage: clean; heat level: mild; violence: war time violence & death, but nothing unnecessary


    18. This is the end of the trilogy. There were so many twists and turns in this book. My Dad served in WWII. Peter Eddy and the rest of his unit is sent on a mission to destroy a bridge. What they don't know is that it is a suicide mission and none of them are suppose to return. Genevieve starts to loose hope as days turn to weeks and then months and she still hasn't heard from Peter.


    19. This book grabbed me by the throat pretty quickly and just didn't let up. It was almost too intense. I finally had to just binge read and get it done so my nerves could get some relief! I liked the setting and learning about a mostly overlooked part of WWII.


    20. A secret mission during WWII that was supossed to fail, but the four men sent didn't know and they were determined to surviveI couldn't put the book down because I wanted to see what was going to happen.


    21. This series has been interesting in terms of the historical pets of WW2. The characters are likable and realistic. I've enjoyed the 3 books quite a bit.


    22. I learned how complicated the war was in Eastern Europe--not just one side against the other, but intrigues within countries as well.


    23. Loved historical fiction of WWII. This one mostly takes place in Yugoslavia. It's a journey of survival and sacrifice for friends, for those you love and for the greater good. What a story!


    24. Love this book!! Full of suspense. Amazing author. I really enjoy her writinghistory, action, suspense, and clean romance. Would read again.
