Waiting on Wednesday (#176): Blood for Blood by Ryan Graudin


"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.


This week, I'm featuring:


Blood for Blood by Ryan Graudin
Book Two of the Wolf by Wolf series
Publisher: Little, Brown Books for Young Readers
Publication Date: November 1, 2016

Summary (from Goodreads):

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.



I loved Wolf by Wolf! I know this ARC will be at BEA, which is awesome (and sad for me). I can't wait to read it!

    1. This is like, paranormal alternate history! Very low on the actual history. If that makes sense.

  19. OMG, Alyssa, this looks SO AWESOME!! I meant to come over sooner to see what you had picked, but things got complicated.... Anyway, I have never seen this series before, and don't know the author. What really grabbed me in this synopsis was that the female protagonist shot and killed Hitler. Gosh, if only that had been true.....so many innocent people might not have died.

    This sounds just VERY intriguing!! I'm adding it to my Goodreads shelves right away!! Thanks for sharing!! Have a GREAT weekend!! :)

    1. Wolf By Wolf was one of the most impressive books I read last year! I'm anxious to get my hands on the sequel. You're missing so much context! I highly recommend the series so you can see how it all went down. I hope you enjoy, Maria!
