Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event that is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine and spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
This week I am waiting on Blood For Blood by Ryan Graudin. I read the first book, Wolf By Wolf, earlier and wow! It was amazing and I’m beyond excited to be teaching it in my class next school year. I loved the alternate history and how the characters were never what you thought they were. There is so much more left to be told and I have so many questions! Also, look at that cover!! It looks like an old movie poster, totally eye catching and dark. November, please come quickly.
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?
