Life Unworthy by Christopher Taylor

Happy Book Birthday to Christopher Taylor, who’s book, Life Unworthy, publishes tomorrow. Life Unworthy is a historically accurate story of how a werewolf (okay, maybe not COMPLETELY accurate) wrecks havoc on Hitler’s SS best laid plans.

Publisher’s DescriptionWhen the gas was delivered to a shower in Birkenau, the soldiers expected death, but what came out of that concrete chamber was far worse. Now the Fuhrer has demanded the monster be tracked down and destroyed, but a German scientist has other ideas for how it may be used for the third Reich. And the Werewolf has plans of his own.

Caught in the middle is the city of Krakow and its citizens striving to survive under the brutal, murderous Nazi regime. In that city is Aniela Wisniewski, a pianist feeding snippets of information to the British. As events unfold, terror spreads over the city with Aniela at its center, a terror racing to an inconceivable conclusion! 

Life Unworthy is available through Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Smashwords.

Possible spoilers beyond this point.

Incredible book! I finished this story on September 11, which I think is quite appropriate.

I love history, but this book is set during WWII in Nazi Germany. This is a part of history that I wish didn’t exist. Just because I try to avoid thinking about it, reading about it or learning about it, doesn’t make it go away. During the Nazi occupation of Poland, did you know that over seven million civilians were killed because they were ‘unworthy’?  When I think of these statistics, I am ashamed of the human race that is capable of such things.

This book centers on Auschwitz death camp. The historical accuracy is amazing and the research is stellar. This book reminds me of Schindler’s List. I read Life Unworthy cover to cover and I know that those of you that know me will be amazed. This is not a fluffy book and as history shows there isn’t much of a happier ever after. What it does show is how a werewolf is revealed because the “showers” (polite name for gas chambers that murdered thousands) doesn’t kill him. He seeks his revenge on the German soldiers. He stalks and kills those that he deems “unworthy”.

badge4v4This story is not solely about the Nazi’s. There is a salute to those people who risked everything to bring information to the Allies in order to defeat Hitler and his horrible concept of a superior human. The few brave humans that had radio transmitters hidden in their homes. There were the few brave humans who operated the underground to get people out of Germany. There are nods to some German officers who did what they could to get the Jews and other tortured souls out of danger.

If you like this book…

… you might try The Strain Trilogy by Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan, or the Order of the Sanguine series James Rollins and Rebecca Cantrell.
