Blood for Blood by Ryan Graudin Review

After reading the first book in the series, wolf by wolf, I was really exicted to be able to read the final book in the duology. I have finished the book and it is time for a review.


The story

There would be blood. Blood for blood. Blood to pay. An entire world of it.

For the resistance in the Third Reich, 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 Hitler’s army, and there is no alternative but to see their mission through to the end, whatever the cost.

But in the midst of the chaos, Yael’s past and future collide when she comes face to face with a ghost from her past, and a spark with a fellow rider begins to grow into something more. Dark secrets reveal dark truths and one question hangs over them all—how far can you go for the ones you love?

Taken from goodreads

This is a series I have loved from the moment I started reading the first book, there was something about the idea of an alternate world where hitler won and people trying to take him down seems to really interest me and being able to see that come to life from the author is great.

For me the best part of this book that isnt the story has got to be the character development. Mainly from the three main characters of the book as how much they grow from the start to finish of the book is outstanding and makes you start to feel for the characters and just wanting to make sure that nothing bad happens to them. We see Yael try and struggle with that fact that she is with someone she has become to love but doesn’t know if she is able to trust him, we have Luka who is also in love and will do anything for the other person just to have a chance of them being together and then we have felix who is getting blackmailed with his families life to turn his back on Luka and Yael and hand them in. For me reading about these character and how they were coping with their own problems was just as interesting as the story.

The actual story itself is probably what makes this book as good as it is. Like I said before I love this sort of idea and seeing how great the story has been told makes my day so much better. I can talk about the story all day and probably not get bored but I want to talk about is the twist ending. I don’t care what anyone says when you get to the ending and find out what happened and you say you predicted it I will call you a liar. I was reading the ending for the book with so much concentration I am sure I could have been hit and wouldn’t of noticed as I just wanted to find out as much as possible.

Because of how great this book was written it makes you want to read more about this time period and see what other authors points of view are. The story is written with so much detail that even people with the worst imagination possible will be able to have an idea of what the sorrunding area is like and what each of the characters look like.

For me I think this is a great ending to a duology and gives the overall series a boost of greatness. This is the first duology I have read but I still think it is a lot better then some of the series I have finished just because there is very little filler.  I recommened that you go and read this series as soon as possible as you won’t regret it.
