Ryan Graudin’s Wolf By Wolf came out of nowhere for me. It’s been a while since a book moved me the way that one did. Blood For Blood, the conclusion of this historical duology, once again moved me in a way that few books can. Read my full review here. Cover is linked to Goodreads.
From the Goodreads Synopsis:
“For the resistance in 1950s Germany, the war may be over, but the fight has just begun.
Death camp survivor Yael, who has the power to skinshift, is on the run: the world has just seen her shoot and kill Hitler. But the truth of what happened is far more complicated, and its consequences are deadly. Yael and her unlikely comrades dive into enemy territory to try to turn the tide against the New Order, and there is no alternative but to see their mission through to the end, whatever the cost.
But dark secrets reveal dark truths, and one question hangs over them all: how far can you go for the ones you love?”
