Hello Hello! How are you?

Popping back onto the blog after a few weeks to shine the spotlight on The Book of Uriel by Elyse Hoffman as part of the #BlogTour organised by Dave from @The_WriteReads.

This one sounds like a book I would love, so hopefully, when all the craziness settles down and I have more time for myself, I’ll be able to read it! Keep on reading to find out if this is a book you’d like to pick up too.

Thank you so much to Dave and the author for letting me be part of this tour, it is always such a pleasure to take part and help boost authors and books!


In the fires of World War II, a child must save his people from darkness…

Ten-year-old Uriel has always been an outcast. Born mute in a Jewish village known for its choir, he escapes into old stories of his people, stories of angels and monsters. But when the fires of the Holocaust consume his village, he learns that the stories he writes in his golden notebook are terrifyingly real.

In the aftermath of the attack, Uriel is taken in by Uwe, a kind-hearted linguist forced to work for the commander of the local Nazi Police, the affably brutal Major Brandt. Uwe wants to keep Uriel safe, but Uriel can’t stay hidden. The angels of his tales have come to him with a dire message: Michael, guardian angel of the Jewish people, is missing. Without their angel, the Jewish people are doomed, and Michael’s angelic brethren cannot search for him in the lands corrupted by Nazi evil.

With the lives of millions at stake, Uriel must find Michael and free him from the clutches of the Angel of Death…even if that means putting Uwe in mortal danger.

The Book of Uriel is a heart-breaking blend of historical fiction and Jewish folklore that will enthral fans of The Book Thief and The World That We Knew.


Elyse Hoffman strives to tell historical tales with new twists: she loves to meld WWII and Jewish history with fantasy, folklore, and the paranormal. She has written six works of Holocaust historical fiction: the five books of The Barracks of the Holocaust and The Book of Uriel.
