Hey Guys, thanks for stopping by for Greta Stone’s blog tour for Cry Wolf, you can catch my review below. You can follow the tour at Xpresso Book Tours.
There are two giveaways for this blog tour, one is a rafflecopter which you will find at the end of the post as usual. the other is for this blog… Greta Stone is kindly giving an eBook copy of Cry Wolf to the first 5 people to comment on this post today! It’s that simple! Good luck!
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.
Greta Stone has taken a story which doesn’t get retold much and created a new world around it. Peter and the Wolf was one of my favourites as a child and I was keen to see how the story was developed for this full length novel.
Peter is a Kitsune, a Japanese shapeshifter, he appears as a fox but can imitate any animal. He is the eldest foster child of the Grandmother who takes in orphan monsters (think the old woman who lives in a shoe…yes the house is a shoe). The world Greta has created is Old Gotham, a world within our world where ‘monsters’ or paranormal beings are real, and live in their own society.
Luca has just escaped his pack, a slave pack, he has no memory before waking up a slave. So when he meets Peter and Peter remembers him, tells him they were friends as children, before he went missing he doesn’t know what to believe. And then he finds himself saving Peter and their friendship blooms but not without it’s problems.
I loved how these two were so mis-matched, they didn’t have anything in common, Peter was mouthy and playful while Luca was serious and tight-lipped. Yet despite their differences they managed to find common ground and a beautiful attraction grew between them. It was so lovely to read their relationship growing through the book. There are some really beautiful moments in this novel.
I found some of the scenes a little long and drawn out, and I felt some of the scenes weren’t strictly necessary. But overall I really enjoyed this novel and I loved the LGBTQ angle rather than the usual boy on girl romance. I will definitely read more books in this series.
Sending a huge thanks to Greta Stone and Xpresso Book Tours for the eARC so that I could honestly review this book.

Giveaway note from author:
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)
