Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

*"Beyond its breath-taking climax, the novel provokes deeper questions about the 'moreness' Yael begins to see in her competitors' identities, and in her own. VOYA (starred review)
*"Graudin (The Walled City) crafts another fast-paced, enthralling tale of sacrifice and dogged determination as she fuses alternate history and spy-thriller suspense. A provocative rumination on self-preservation, the greater good, and the boundaries that keep heroes from becoming as cruel as those they fight. Publishers Weekly (starred review)
Wolf by Wolf completely immerses the reader in a story they'll never forget. Filled to the brim with tension and intrigue, nonstop action, and a vivid cast of characters, you'll feel every bump in the road they ride. I simply couldn't stop reading--and wherever Ryan Graudin rides next, I'll follow. Amie Kaufman, New York Times bestselling author of These Broken Stars
Graudin's prose is artful and addictive. School Library Journal
Alternate histories can be risky gambits, but in Graudin's capable hands, it pays off in spades. Yael is a compelling protagonist, both strong and flawed, and, even imbued as it is with sci-fi elements, seeing both WWII and the concentration camp experience through her eyes is a terrifying adventure. Booklist
With this complex and well-crafted mix of action, emotion, and alternate history, Graudin provides something new and notable for readers of historical and dystopian fiction. The Bulletin
Give this to fans of espionage novels, and strong female protagonists; some dystopian fans may even take to the resistance storyline. School Library Connection
The rush of an action movie combined with a flawlessly executed history, this is the book I've been waiting for. I loved Wolf by Wolf, and I'm not speaking to my friends till they've read and loved it too. Jackson Pearce, author of Sisters Red and Tsarina
Ryan Graudin opens one of the darkest chapters in history and spins a what if into an incredible tale of survival, identity, and purpose. This is the kind of book you can't put down, and the kind that follows you long after you have. It is, quite simply, a masterpiece. Victoria Schwab, author of The Archived, Vicious, and A Darker Shade of Magic
“Christa Lewis, who narrated Gradin’s first WWII alt-history, Wolf by Wolf, narrates this companion. Lewis immediately picks up the dramatically intensity she built at the end of the first audiobook…Lewis creates tension anew, and it doesn’t abate until the end…Lewis deepens the characterizations and relationships while rapidly shifting accents and emotions to match the plot’s breakneck speed. Author and narrator deliver on the promise of the first book as love and terror, courage and heartbreak keep listeners glued to a story that’s as well told as it is consuming. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile
* "Graudin's writing is beautiful, her story exciting and consuming all at once, and this sequel to Wolf by Wolf (2015) is not to be missed. Booklist, starred review
* "Gripping and intricately plotted...this haunting, historical what-if fantasy balances the atrocities of this alternate world with touches of innocent romance. VOYA, starred review
A haunting portrayal of one girl's courage in the face of a vicious world. I was racing along with Yael until the book's heart-pounding conclusion. A triumph. Megan Shepherd, author of The Madman's Daughter
Graudin has crafted a fast-paced historical fantasy that movingly transports readers into a world of hard choices, great injustice, and daring acts of love. School Library Journal
“Gripping and intricately plotted…This haunting, historical what-if fantasy balances the atrocities of this alternate world with touches of innocent romance.” VOYA (starred review)
“Wild and gorgeous, vivid and consuming.” Laini Taylor, New York Times bestselling author
“Graudin has crafted a fast-paced historical fantasy that movingly transports readers into a world of hard choices, great injustice, and daring acts of love. The romantic elements are touching and wholesome and provide a welcome counterbalance to the fight scenes and military details. The story’s conclusion, while not a completely happy ending, is all the more satisfying for its notes of sorrow…Highly recommended for fans of historical fiction, alternate history, or works of espionage and intrigue.” School Library Journal
