24807186The 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?

    this book a twist of fiction and non-fiction is an amazing book in my eyes. Yael’s bak story is a exiting piece of writing. I truly enjoyed this book and I am inspired by what Yale completed even though it is just a story! this book grips to my interest in history mainly in WW2.
    I recommend this boo to 12 and older.

  2. This alternate history had the potential to be a compelling read. It had a gripping start, beautiful writing and an unique concept, but it was very repetitive and at times it lacked the action it promised. I also felt, as the reader, that I was kept at arms’ length from really knowing the main characters – Yael, Felix and Luka, and as such couldn’t totally connect with them. However, I did enjoy Yael’s backstory. “Wolf By Wolf” has received a number of rave reviews, but I didn’t think it lived up to the hype, although it was still an okay story.
