REVIEW: Wolf By Wolf by Ryan Graudin

Where can we start? This book is an action packed adventure, its very captivating and has you turning page after page. This is an historical fiction book based on a what if… What if Hitler had won the war?

(Blurb) 

[Once upon a different time, there was a girl who lived in a kingdom of death. Wolves howled up her arm. A whole pack of them- made of tattoo ink and pain, memory and loss. It was the only thing about her that ever stayed the same. 

Germany, 1956. Over ten years since the Nazis won the war. Seventeen-year-old Yael is part of the resistance, and she has one mission: to kill Hitler. But first she’s got to get close enough to do it.]

Yael is a survivor of a human experiment, she has the power to skin shift, she can change her appearance on will. The axis powers of the Third Reich and Imperial Japan rule the world. To celebrate their victory Hitler and Emperor Hirohito host the Axis Tour: an annual motorcycle race across their continents. The victor of the race is awarded with meeting the reclusive Adolf Hitler at the Victor’s ball. Yael’s mission is to impersonate the only female victor, Adele Wolfe and try to win the race.

For us, this book was perfect and consuming, its one of those rare occasions were you wouldn’t change anything about it. Yale is a very strong lead character, and you can’t help but love and enjoy the side characters. Its got many twists and turns, ones that you wouldn’t expect. Beneath the fast paced plot, there are some underlying themes, one that stands out is the theme on identity, which Ryan Graudin expresses in her author’s note.

Overall,  this book is definitely a must read, we really recommend it ,as it has become one of our favourites. We are absolutely dying to read the next book!

REVIEW:Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard

imageHonestly an amazing book by Victoria Aveyard, constantly captivating and extremely hard to put down. Great sequel to Red Queen, and we cannot WAIT for the next one. Highly recommended from us to any reader who’s into dystopia and a lot of unexpected twists. In all honesty we’d recomend it to anyone, it literally takes you on a roller coaster of emotions, love, hate, betrayal, sorrow and heartbreak, all wrapped up into a single book.

The author manages to give the reader mixed emotions on a lot of characters which we find truly amazing and skilful. She plays with the readers emotions in a fantastic way, a little warning just in case, for those who are easily moved.

We strongly recommend to anyone who is interested in it, to read, Red Queen, the first book in the series before reading this one if not having already done so.

Blurb (contains small spoilers to those who havn’t read Red Queen) :

If there is one thing Mare Barrow knows, it’s that she’s different.

Mares blood is red, but her unique Silver ability-the power to control lightening- has turned her into a weapon that the Silver court will do anything to control.

As mare escapes the clutches of Maven, the prince and friend – who betrayed her, she discovers something shocking: she is it the only one of her kind.

persued by Maven, now a vindictive King, Mare sets out to find and recruit other Red-and-Silver fighters.

but mare is treading a deadly path, at risk of becoming exactly the kind of monster she is trying to defeat. Will she shatter under the weight of the lives that are the cost of the rebellion? Or have treachery and betrayal hardened her for ever?

 

Once again, really enjoyed this book and we hope you do too, if you decide to read it.   Feel free to comment any suggestions for any other book reviews also. đź’–đź’–
