Blog Tour + Review + #Giveaway: Cry Wolf by Greta Stone @gothamgremlins @XpressoTours

Cry Wolf
Greta Stone
Publication date: March 1st 2017
Genres: Gothic, New Adult, Paranormal Romance

Peter is a kitsune. Chaos follows him wherever he goes. Good intentions, bad intentions—it doesn’t matter. Even mimicking the howl of a friend he hasn’t seen in over a decade turns out to have disastrous consequences.

The wolf doesn’t have a name. For now, he goes by Luca. He has no past, and as an escaped slave, if he can’t stay hidden in the shadows, he’ll have no future. When someone steals his howl, he’s drawn to investigate, and ends up saddled with a mouthy fox who insists they used to be friends once upon a time.

Petty problems and a dubious reunion are pushed aside the longer they’re stranded together. The Underwood is a dangerous place.

They have two choices: work together or die.

Join Greta Stone in a dark paranormal MM romance retelling of Aesop’s fable, The Boy Who Cried Wolf, and David P. Mannix’s classic novel, The Fox and the Hound.

My Review:

Cry Wolf is about two young men/teenagers, Peter is a fox-shifter and a Kistune with a demon living inside of him and Luca is a werewolf who was orphans and lived with the old lady in the shoe who is known as Granny Sole. Peter is well known as the boy who cried and Luca is known as the punisher.

Luca disappeared when they were just kids, Peter and the rest of the kids looked for Luca for months with no luck they finally assumed that he was dead. Then one day Peter is out in the woods and sees a group of people who are after a runaway slave. Peter decides to help this runaway slave and soon learns that it is his long lost friend whom he assumed was dead.

Peter is injured so with Luca’s help they escape to the Underwood where Luca takes care of Peter. Luca tells Peter that he must stay in Underwood until he heals and Luca trains him to fight. Peter is very happy to have his old friend back again but he learns that Luca has no memory of his life before he was taken as a slave.

Peter and Luca were great friends as boys but as boys they did fight a lot and with each other. Granny Sole tried everything to help the boys sometimes she would separate them and tie them up and let them yell and scream at each until they either made up or fell asleep from exhaustion. Other times she would lock them in the barn and I assume let them go at it until they made up or pasted out. But they back to being best friends when the sun came up the next day.

While Peter and Luca are in Underwood living in a cave and Luca is training to Peter to fight they spend a lot of time together alone and renew their friendship which soon turns into more than just mere friendship. They find they are attracted to each other which kind of blows Peter mind at first but as the days go by Peter attraction for Luca intensifies. Both boys have a hard time of trusting so therefore have a hard time of giving themselves to someone. I like the fact that Peter and Luca didn’t just fall into each other arms the very first minuet they find themselves alone. They took the time to get to know each other again and didn’t rush right into having relations.

Cry Wolf was a very slow to start books but once I got into the thick of it I didn’t want to put it down I wanted to keep reading and reading to find out what happens to Peter, Luca, Pippa, Hermes the flea, Granny Sole and all the other characters. Even now I am stilling thinking about Peter and Luca.

If you liked the old fairy tells from your youth or just reading the old fairy tells in general then I think you will truly enjoy reading Peter and Luca’s story, the boy who cried and the punisher. Why was Peter called the boy who cried? Why is Luca known as the punisher?

Take a trip to New Gotham!

A paid vacation to New Gotham is an expensive affair. I found a witch who specializes in crafting gatestones. These magical pendants are used for traveling between dimensions. The bauble offered as a contest prize should take the winner to Avaline’s Trees. Keep in mind, gatestones are touchy things. It might not do anything at all. Or you might up in oblivion. Good luck with that. We’ll read about it in the papers, no doubt.

Elderstone Keys – What’s the big deal?

There is a house in New Gotham that is rumored to be haunted. No one has lived in it since the Great Depression, and no one can recall what its last occupants looked like, what they did for a living or where they went. Only one is fated to enter and learn its secrets. Anytime I host a contest, I give away keys to Elderstone. The person who collects ten of them is fated to own the house. Among their keys, they’ll have the mystical key that opens the door. (More information)
