Iron to Iron
Sixteen-year-old Luka Lowe has one goal in mind: Win the 1955 Axis Tour and become the first Double Cross victor. If he can accomplish that, maybe his father will finally see him as a worthy son. He's completed the grueling trek from Germania to Tokyo before, but this time is different. Luka ...more
I was quite angry after finishing the wonderful Wolf By Wolf that Ryan Graudin didn't tell us what exactly happened between Luka and Adele. I wanted to know so badly, and this novella is that story!
We follow the race the year before Yael enters; Luka Löwe is ready to win the Double Cross. But there are some unforeseen circumstances and things don't turn out the way he planned.
I loved this novella, it was just as exciting and fast-paced as Wolf by Wolf and totally added to the ...more
He'd be more than ready.
Nineteen fifty-six was going to be Luka Löwe's year."
You ABSOLUTELY MUST read Wolf by Wolf first.
This is the story of Adele's first Axis Tour. You know, the one Luka met her in? Hmmmm?
OMGSH it was so good. I love this little gem of a ...more
After reading Wolf By Wolf I was very much interested in knowing what really happened between Luka and Adele.
Whatever we know about Adele from the first book is all through Yael but Adele still remained a mystery. But in this book we actually know who Adele really is.
"I'm not going to waste mine fulfilling someone else's idea of who I should be. That's why I entered the Axis Tour. I want people to remember my name."
We also now know what really happened between Luka and Adele. It wa ...more
I loved Wolf by Wolf so obviously when I learned Iron to Iron was released (months ago; this is a belated review) I dropped everything and sat down in my reading nook to finish the novella in one sitting.
Once upon a different time, there was a boy who raced through a kingdom of death. He wore a brown jacket where all others were black, and it was said that his face could snare the hearts of ten thousand German maidens at first sight. His own heart? Hidden behi...more
I love Wolf by wolf so so so much. It's one of my favourite books of all time and just.. Ah I just really want everybody to read it!!
In this novella we follow Luka Lowe and I dislike him because of what happened in ...more
"Once upon a different time, there was a boy who raced through a kingdom of death. He wore a brown jacket where all others were black, and it was said that his face could snare the hearts of ten thousand German maidens at first sight. His own heart? Hidden behind layers of leather and sneer and steel. Untouchable.
Until it wasn't"
This is the story of Adele's first Axis tour. The one that she met Luka in. The one that is so hinted about in Wolf By Wolf, but not explained. I was so excited t ...more
I really enjoyed this novella! It's told through Luka's POV - who I actually really liked from the beginning, so of course I enjoyed getting to know him better.
We get to know more about Luka and Adele's past, and understand more about who he was in Wolf by Wolf. Their past is very interesting and now everything Luka did in the book makes more sense.
"That's not why you wear the jacket. It's not because of mosquitoes, and it's not b ...more
Iron to Iron is narrated by Luka Lowe as he tries to figure out newcomer to the world famous Axis Race, Felix Wolfe – Adele Wolfe in disguise. Even though we already know the outcome of the dangerous motorbike race, the relationship between Luka and Adele is still a little bit of a mystery, so it was great to get to know them bot ...more
This was flawless. And exquisite. It was everything a good novella should be and then some. Heck, it was almost more entertaining than Wolf by Wolf. Reasons?
I am head over wheels in love with Luka now. The guy is freaking adorable and such an amazing narrator. He's hilarious, he's gorgeous and once we get to see his softer side, insanely cute and root-worthy. In WBW we didn't know exactly what had happened, though I was able to form a...more
I recommend reading it if you're curious as to what actually happened the year p ...more
Taking place before the events of Wolf by Wolf, but should still be read after that book, in my opinion. A worthwhile read at 104 pages, of which 86% is the actual story, which is fairly good for a novella, usually it's only half that.

The writing is so gorgeous. The story is so exciting. And I loved how much of it takes place just driving through stunning places. It was great to read about. Especially with such ...more
Once upon a different time, there was a boy who raced through a kingdom of death.Iron to Iron is an impressive novella. Not only does it provide insight into Adele and Luka's relationship during the 1955 Axis Tour, but at the same time it also manages to get readers even more excited for Blood For Blood.
Iron to Iron takes place a year before the events of Wolf by Wolf and follows Luka Lowe as he tries to become the first person to ever win two back-to-back Axis Tours.
At only 1 ...more
As for the pairing of Luka and Adele... sigh. I really do love them together. It was so cool to see how they interacted as opposed ...more
I wanted a bit of back story and a little more depth to Luka's character and I suppose we got that but he just wasn't what I wanted him to be. I was hoping he was a rebel when he was really only some begging for his dads approval and I was hoping he was relentless and ruthless and instead he was a love sick puppy.
This has made me want a prequel novella on A ...more
