⭐️⭐️⭐️ 3/5 stars
Blurb: ‘The year is 1956, and the Axis powers of the Third Reich and Imperial Japan rule the world. To commemorate their Great Victory over Britain and Russia, Hitler and Emperor Hirohito host the Axis Tour: an annual motorcycle race across their conjoined continents. The victor is awarded an audience with the highly reclusive Adolf Hitler at the Victor’s ball.
Yael, who escaped from a death camp, has one goal: Win the race and kill Hitler. A survivor of painful human experimentation, Yael has the power to skinshift and must complete her mission by impersonating last year’s only female victor, Adele Wolfe. This deception becomes more difficult when Felix, Adele twin’s brother, and Luka, her former love interest, enter the race and watch Yael’s every move. But as Yael begins to get closer to the other competitors, can she bring herself to be as ruthless as she needs to be to avoid discovery and complete her mission.’
‘Wolf by Wolf’ by author Ryan Graudin is the story of Adele Wolf. It is set a decade after World War 2 in which the ruling countries, Germany and Japan, celebrate with a yearly motorbike race. The race is only open typing men, but the previous year, Adele Wolf took part, disguised as her brother and won. As the winner, she met the Führer, who lives a very secluded and protected life. In this years race, she is supposed to race again, but enemies of the Führer have other plans. I am a bit torn about this book. There were parts I really enjoyed, the fast paced parts when they were racing, but I just couldn’t get my head around the rest of the story. I think some people who enjoy certain science fiction genres will love this book, but unfortunately for me it just wasn’t the kind of book I enjoy.’
