“Waiting on Wednesday” is a weekly event hosted by Jill at the Breaking The Spine. It showcases upcoming releases we’re anticipating!
My pick of the week is:
Blood for Blood (Wolf by Wolf #2)
By: Ryan Graudin
Coming: 1 November 2016
Publisher: Little Brown Books for Young Readers
The action-packed, thrilling sequel to Ryan Graudin’s Wolf by Wolf.
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.
Why I’m excited:
I was incredibly intrigued by Wolf by Wolf. My great-grandfather and grandfather both fought in World War II. I grew up obsessed with learning about WWII due to the pride of being their great-granddaughter/granddaughter. It’s interesting to ponder what the world could have been like if the Axis powers had ended up winning the war.
Why I need you to be excited:
I’m a giant history nerd, of course I’m going to push a historical novel! (:
