"Wild and gorgeous, vivid and consuming. I loved it! I can't wait for the sequel." --Laini Taylor, New York Times bestselling author of the Daughter of Smoke & Bone trilogy
Her story begins on a train.
The year is 1956, and the Axis powers of the Third Reich and Imperial Japan rule. To commemorate their Great Victory, they host the Axis Tour: an annual motorcycle race across their combined continents. The prize? An audience with the highly reclusive Adolf Hitler at the Victor's ball in Tokyo.
Yael, a former death camp prisoner, has witnessed too much suffering, and the five wolves tattooed on her arm are a constant reminder of the loved ones she lost. The resistance has given Yael one goal: Win the race and kill Hitler. A survivor of painful human experimentation, Yael has the power to skinshift and must complete her mission by impersonating last year's only female racer, Adele Wolfe. This deception becomes more difficult when Felix, Adele's twin brother, and Luka, her former love interest, enter the race and watch Yael's every move.
But as Yael grows closer to the other competitors, can she be as ruthless as she needs to be to avoid discovery and stay true to her mission?
From the author ofThe Walled Citycomes a fast-paced and innovative novel that will leave you breathless.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I LOVED THIS A adrenaline rush of a book that's an action-packed look into a scary alternate world that could have been our own. The history nerd in me loves this.
Date published: 2016-11-07
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Uniqie and Compelling Based on the what ifs from our own history, Graudin creates a world where Adolf Hitler won Word War II, and experiments are being done on death camp prisoners. To commemorate their victory, teenagers from Hitler Youth compete in the Great Race - a motorcycle race from Berlin to Japan. Yael, a skinshifter who survived the experiments, is assigned to impersonate Adele, a past victor, win the race and kill Adolf Hitler at the Victor's Ball in hopes of starting a revolution that will end Hitler's reign. Her task becomes more complex when Adele's brother and her past love interest show up at the race. Despite the many movies, shows and books on Word War II, the storyline remains original and compelling. Since it is a speculative dystopian world, we can relate to it a lot more easily because it could have easily been our world if things had gone differently. It is a fast paced novel packed with action and adventure. Yael is a strong female character who has lost her sense of identity due to the experiments, and while she tries to win the race, she also tries to cope with the past and who she is. I am usually not a huge fan of jumping back and forth in time, but it was properly introduced and integrated into the story by connecting it to the wolves on her arm. The only thing I did not like was that the author tends to repeat words for emphasis, but honestly, once you get past that, it was an enjoyable read and I would recommend you give it a shot.

"Give this to fans of espionage novels, and strong female protagonists; some dystopian fans may even take to the resistance storyline."-School Library Connection
