Straight from Ryan Graudin!
“OnceÂ 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, memoryÂ and loss. It was the only thing about her that ever stayed the same.
Her storyÂ begins on a train.”
And soÂ begins the story of Yael, a girl who can change her appearance to mimic any
other female. A girl who must win a 20,000 kilometer cross-continentalÂ motorcycle race from Germania to Tokyo so that she can have an audience withÂ Adolf Hitler. A girl who has every intention of killing him.
Whenever IÂ describe the premise of WOLF BY WOLF to people, the reactions I get are quite
similar. It’s the “are-you-insane-or-are-you-onto-something” face:Â dropped jaw, squiggly eyebrows. I must admit, I felt many of those sameÂ feelings when I first started penning Yael’s story. Alternate history + sci-fiÂ + epic motorcycle journey felt like a strange recipe for a novel. But I pushedÂ through my fears and kept writing, and I couldn’t be happier with the result.Â I, for one, don’t think I’m insane, but I’ll let you, dear reader, come up withÂ your own conclusion.
Code Name Verity meets Inglourious Basterds in this fast-paced novel from the author of The Walled City.
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?
