Nazis, skinshifters, motorbikes, and a girl to change things: A review of Wolf By Wolf by Ryan Graudin

“Once 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, memory and loss. It was the only thing about her that ever stayed the same.

Her story begins on a train.”

The year is 1956, and the Nazis won the war. Hitler rules the Third Reich, their territories are expansive, Imperial Japan rules alongside them with a shaky alliance. To commemorate this Great Victory, Hitler and Emperor Hirohito hold a cross country motor bike race, called the Axis Tour, a dangerous and deadly competition, a race of death and blood, where only the strong survive. The reward for the victor; prestige, money, and a chance…a chance to meet the reclusive Hitler himself. Yael is a former death camp prisoner, and her life has consisted of nothing but pain, ash and needles. The five wolves tattooed up her arm are to hold onto the love ones she has lost. Her pain and suffering have given her a special gift and an unwavering goal, win the race and kill Hitler.
