In this alternate universe, Hitler won World War II.
Yael was a young girl when the war started and she was taken to a concentration camp and experimented on. These experiments gave Yael the ability to skin shift. Now, all grown up and properly trained, she is on a mission … a mission to kill Hitler.
I absolutely loved the premise of this book. It is absolutely insane to think about a world where Hitler won the war. I also thought the characters competing in a motorcycle race was cool because it is such a different idea. (I didn’t include it in the summary but Yael must win a motorcycle race from Germania to Tokyo).
I thought Yael was such a badass character at the start of the book but, unfortunately, my opinion of her fell as the book went on. For someone who is supposed to kill Hitler, she is incredibly naive and she is incredibly trusting for someone who is in such an important mission. I lost a lot of respect for her character because of that. Make her cold hearted! Maybe I’m just in the mood for a cold hearted character. She is supposed to be killing one of the most evil men the world has ever seen though … She did redeem herself at the end a bit but we shall see how it carries over into the next book!
Rating: 4.5/5 stars
