'Rachael Beresford capably narrates this pair of novella-length audiobooks featuring determined young women facing hardship with courage. In White Eagles, Kristina Tomiak must pilot a plane from the shattered Polish Air Force across Europe, just a step ahead of the advancing Nazi army. In Firebird, Nastia Nabokova eagerly fights for Mother Russia with only an ancient crop-duster aircraft to pilot against the might of the Luftwaffe. Beresford excels at expressing the girls' inner turmoil and at bringing the anxiety and exhilaration of flight and air combat to life. With her cut-glass English accent and precise diction, she does not attempt to mimic the native accents of her characters, though she does a creditable job tackling a minor character's denture-induced lisp.'

Two of Elizabeth Wein's most mesmerising and inspirational tales for young adults, Firebird and White Eagles have been compiled together for the first time in this powerful audiobook.

White Eagles: Summer 1939. With Europe on the brink of war, 18-year-old Kristina Tomiak has been called up to join the White Eagles, Poland's valiant air force. When the Nazis reach the town where she is based, Kristina makes a daring escape, but she doesn't realise that she's carrying a stowaway in her plane. Will Kristina be able to navigate the most challenging flight of her life and reach safety amid the turmoil of war? Firebird: Nastia is no traitor. She is a fearless pilot, the daughter of revolutionaries, and now, as the Second World War descends on Russia, she must fight to defend the glorious Motherland. But all is not as it seems and when the battles begin, secrets are revealed and everything that Nastia once knew is challenged.

'Wein truly demonstrates her masterful hand.'
