Book Review - Phantom Panthers - David Shultz

Friday, May 16, 2014


This book begins as a WWII story of two friends who both drive tanks for the Nazi regime. It describes how towns are decimated by both sides. When the town and families of these two are destroyed they are inducted into the Teutonic knights. Only one young daughter survives and she is taken in by a neighbor. This is when things start to get really strange-------

I'm still trying to figure out whether or not I like this book. It is definitely well written and the plot is easy to follow so I will give it a 5. I think perhaps this is a book geared towards men but I could be wrong-I have been before!

I love reading books like this even though I'm not a huge war fan, for some reason books about wars or that take place during wars intrigue me.

This book sounds interesting and I may have to read it. I always loved hearing about my grandfather in the military and that is one of the reasons I had joined the Army. Thanks for the information.

I am not one to really pick up war related books, but I do like that this has a supernatural twist to it. Might be worth a read.

Sounds like the author know what he's writing about. But I think you're right, it might be a bit too male book for me.

This sounds like an interesting book a bit out of my comfort zone. I like to change things up a bit from time to time though, so I might check it out.

amanda mcmahon said...

Perhaps you are right. Many men seem to enjoy this type versus perhaps a chicklit :)

I dnt like war stories, but strangely my brother only read war stories... and his birthday is coming, so this can go in the gift basket, I am trying to make for him. :D

Liz Mays said...

It's funny because I LOVE war movies, but not so much with the books. However, this is one the boyfriend would dig.

Sheila said...

sometimes it's interesting to read book about world war however i prefer the real not the fiction

Elayna Fernandez-Bare said...

I can't help but to think about Life Is Beautiful and the impact that movie had in my life. Concentration camps were so sad, and to think that some people, including children, in the world are still being mistreated. It breaks my heart!

Felicia Franceschelli said...

I like books that incorporate history into them. This would probably be a really fascinating read being that the setting is WWII!
