Welcome back to another edition of Rebecca Reads. This is where I share book reviews, but I actually have a question for YOU right now. Are book lists something that you would like to see? I’ve done a couple of ‘current reads’ posts where I share the stack of book currently residing on my nightstand (or in my Kindle Paperwhite), but I’m not sure if that’s valuable to you? Let me know! I’d love to share more if it’s interesting for you all.
Today’s book is Blood for Blood by Ryan Graudin. If you’ve been following along on my book posts, you’ll remember this book from a while back. This was released in November 2016, and it’s been on my to-read list ever since. It’s the sequel to Wolf by Wolf, and you can find my review of that book here.
This duology is an alternative historical fiction where Hitler won WWII. The main character, Yael, survived a concentration camp but did not escape unscathed. She was, unfortunately, a victim of an experiment that left her a shapeshifter. She can shapeshift into anyone at all in the world. After she escapes, Yael joins a resistance effort to take down Hitler. Yael pretends to be a motorcyclist in a race, with the grand prize being a party with Hitler.
Her mission is to assassinate Hitler.
That’s all in the first book. In Blood for Blood, Yael has completed her mission and is now on the run from the SS. Unexpectedly, she has someone tagging along with her who begins to complicate things.
I really can’t say much else, since this is a sequel! Spoilers are the worst, and I would hate to mess with anyone’s expectation of the story.
Rest assured, this is very, very good. It starts with action and goes non-stop throughout the book. It hooked me immediately, even though it was basically reviewing the end of the first book. This book is just so good. If you love a good fiction or a good alternative historical fiction, I highly recommend this!
