Review: Blood for Blood

Blood for Blood Blood for Blood by Ryan Graudin
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

For the sequel to Wolf By Wolf, Ryan Graudin takes the reader on another whirlwind tour of this alternate history where Hitler lives eleven years longer than he did in the real world...and the Valkyrie plan has been revived to try and effect a long-needed coup. Though Blood for Blood is no less fast-paced than its predecessor, it also suffers from a tendency to get lost in too many plot threads and too much focus on characters other than Yael (though Luka's redemption-and-disillusionment arc makes for the most interesting reading after Yael's part of the story). However, it all builds up to a gripping final act that wraps the series up pretty neatly, even if it feels like there's a loose end or two. Gripping...and deadly.

Suffice it to say, I'll be on the lookout for anything else Graudin gives us in the future.
