Wolf by Wolf begins with an interesting premise: World War II is over, but Hitler was the victor. Every year (akin to the Hunger Games), a motorcycle race is held to honor the country. But there is a secret resistance building a plan. One of these resistance members is Yael. Yael was in a concentration camp and was subjected to medical experiments that gave her the power to imitate any person’s appearance. Because of this power, Yael is chosen to impersonate a racer who Hitler has taken a liking to, in the hopes of assassinating him after she wins the race.
This book is not something I would normally pick up, but I really enjoyed the premise. The story goes from the “present” (1950s) to the past, telling the characters’ origins with the resistance movement. There is a sequel that released this year called Blood for Blood, and I have it on my TBR pile. I can’t wait to see what happens next.
