    1. C T Well's debut novel Kingdom of the Air is a gripping, fast-paced espionage thriller set in WW2. What makes this novel different is that it told mostly from the pov of Josef Schafer, a South-African born fighter pilot in the Luftwaffe, though it also includes the povs of the members of a French resistance cell and the Gestapo agent that hunts them. Josef's Messerschmitt’s is shot down over southern England during a bombing raid. He attempts so allude the British and escape back to Germany bu [...]


    2. Fast paced WW2 thriller.Josef Schafer is a South African born Luftwaffe pilot. When he is shot down over England he is forced to strike a deal to save his sister held in a South African camp.CT Wells delivers a thrilling ride and has obviously researched the military detail well. However, it’s not all about the hardware it’s also a compelling story with strong characters and moral choices.An enjoyable read and one I’d recommend. The book ends nicely setup for a sequel which I'll look forwa [...]


    3. I selected this novel because it won the 2015 Adventure Writer's Competition. The plot is more WWII spy adventure than it is action or thriller, not my normal cup of tea. However, if that is your thing, then you'll want to read Mr. Wells' book. It is very well written with strong and well developed characters. There are some surprising twists to the plot as well, enough to keep the reader guessing.


    4. Josef Schafer is a Luftwaffe pilot, but when his plane goes down over English territory, he is forced to strike a deal that puts everything he knows, including his very life in danger. He is a man torn between warring loyalties – to his sister, who he left behind in South Africa years ago, to his brothers in the Reich, and to a French freedom fighter who makes him question what he believes.Sounds like the makings of a dramatic book, right? And it is.The Kingdom of the Air delivers on the actio [...]


    5. Review of Kingdom of the AirAs soon as The Battle of Britain is mentioned, I’m hooked. And this book is set in 1940 at that time in English history.So what is there to like about C.T. Wells’ first novel The Kingdom of the Air? The short answer is, “a lot”. For lovers of thrillers, historical novels, and a spice of romance this book is a “must”. There is action, tension, danger and excitement aplenty.The story is unusual in that the hero, Josef Shafer, is a complex character of South [...]


    6. “The Kingdom of the Air” eBook was published in 2016 and was written by C. T. Wells. This is Mr. Wells’ first publication. I received a galley of this novel for review through netgalley. I categorize this novel as ‘R’ because it contains scenes of Violence. Some of the story is set in England, but most of it is in France during 1940. The primary characters are Josef Schafer, a German fighter pilot and Giselle Alegre, a former university student and now a member of the French resistance [...]


    7. This is an excellent book with more than the usual War stories of spies and resistance action. Josef is a troubled man having thrown his lot in with the German Luftwaffe having left his South African home. His heart is turned by the charming Giselle and the result was always going to be tragedy. Excellent story development with finely drawn characters. I rate this a 5 star book and look forward to more from this author.



    8. The Kingdom of the Air is definitely one of those "can't put it down" kind of books. Set during WW2 over the skies of occupied France, it is full of excitement, twists and plot turns. The anticipation builds throughout the story, and by the half way mark the action picks up pace to become seriously intense until the end. Although I wouldn't necessarily read this genre, I thoroughly enjoyed the novel. Disclaimer: I know the author personally. However, I purchased the book at full price and have l [...]


    9. I haven't read the final book, but did read an early draft and was impressed. It was a worthy winner of the CALEB prize for unpublished manuscripts.


    10. I enjoyed The Kingdom of the Air by C. T. Wells, even though it's not what I would normally choose to read. The story was engaging from the start. Josef Schafer is a South African born, German pilot who is shot down over England during World War 2. He is returned safely to Germany by an English Special Operations agent but is blackmailed into relaying information to some French resistance operatives. As we follow Josef's interactions with Giselle, her brother and their friend, we see him struggl [...]


    11. South African Josef Schafer became a Nazi pilot as a way of escaping the turmoil of his home country, and in the hope of protecting those he loves from harm. The war that is unfolding around him doesn't necessarily concern him, until his survival becomes dependent on it. Shot down over "enemy" territory, he is returned to his camp as a spy for the Allies in exchange for his sister's safety. Now he must decide what matters most: his loyalty to the nation for whom he is fighting, or maintaining hi [...]
