Germania, 1956. Over ten years since the Nazis won the war. 18-year-old Yael is part of the resistance, and she has just one mission: to kill Hitler.
But first she's got to get close enough to him to do it.
Experimented on during her time at Auschwitz, Yael has the unique ability to change her appearance at will. The only part of her which always remains are the five tattooed wolves on her arm; one for each of the people she's lost. Using her abilities, she must transform into Adele Wolfe, Germany's most famous female rider and winner of the legendary Axis Tour; an epic long distance motorcycle race from Berlin to Tokyo, where only the strongest (and wiliest) riders survive. If she can win this, she will be able to get close enough to kill the Fuhrer and change history forever.
But with other riders sabotaging her chances at every turn, Yael's mission won't be easy. . .
I really enjoyed Wolf by Wolf. I was a bit worried as Nazis in fiction can really make me cross because I get all geeky and nit pick but I thought this was done really well in that regard. The main reason why I liked it was because of the main character who I loved because she was really tough. I loved following her story and got to the point where I literally couldn't put the book down because I needed to see what was going to happen next. Very much looking forward to the next instalment.
