Blood for Blood
There would be blood. Blood for blood. Blood to pay. An entire world of it.
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?
This gripping, thought-provoking sequel to Wolf by Wolf will grab readers by the throat with its cinematic writing, fast-paced action, and relentless twists.
~MY QUICKIE REVIEW~
Non-spoiler-y review for both books.
The narration for this series is fantastic, she does German words and accents with ease, all while staying completely comprehensible. Yes, even for me. I highly recommend the Audio version for this series. Although, the novella Iron to Iron is only available in book format, but well worth the read anyway.
An alluring, atmospheric, alternative historical where the Germans and Japanese win WWII. In the first book Wolf by Wolf, the resistance recruits Yael a skin-shifter (Sounds a bit paranormal-ish…but it's really more like Science Fiction with the way it's done.) to impersonate Adele Wolfe, a racer in the Axis Tour, to assassinate Hitler. Things end on a cliffhanger and Blood for Blood picks up where the first book leaves off. From there it's a race of a different kind. To not only live but follow through on killing the real Hitler. The writing is captivating and the characters are inspiring. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
