Book two in the Wolf by Wolf series was a bit difficult for me to really get excited about. It’s been a couple of months since I read Wolf by Wolf, but I was worried that it would be a trilogy and I would have to wait, yet again, for the next book. I finally began the book, and while the beginning is a bit slow, when things pick up you’ll simply be along for the ride.
The book begins exactly where Wolf By Wolf leaves off and Yael must think quickly to get out of a deadly situation. Through the vast Russian Wilderness, back to the labor camp where the story began, to the frontlines of the Resistance’s war, I traveled with Yael and her companions. The last half of the book, while heartbreaking, with you have your heart racing.
The characters, especially Yael really become fully developed and three dimensional. I felt their pain and triumphs throughout. Much to my husband’s chagrin, I teared up as I closed the book, but not because it was sad. I was disappointed that the adventure had ended.
If you’re looking for a short series, don’t skip this one. It’s well written, and we researched. The characters and their decisions will haunt me well into the future.
