    1. 3.5 starsThis story combines a lot of the old tales that I remember hearing from my childhood (The boy who cried wolf, the old lady that lived in the shoe, etc), but in re-imagined ways. This story is filled with different fairy tale & mythical creatures. I feel like it took me a little while to get into this one because there was so much going on in the beginning, but once I got invested I had a hard time putting this one down. I needed to know what was going to happen. We learn a lot about [...]

    2. 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 the [...]

    3. Cry WolfBy Greta StoneBook ReviewImpressionsEat your vitamins and get a good night’s sleep before reading the true fey tale about how Peter’s true relationship with his wolf began. And don’t get lost in the introduction of the myriad of fey folk and monsters because this is a sparkling love story. Greta Stone takes fantasy and the nursery rhymes that taught us language to another dimension. ‘Twas a bit difficult in the beginnings of the reading to keep track of the different species of f [...]

    4. Some books I have to slow down my reading, as they take longer to digest and I have to concentrate more on the words—usually due to more detailed descriptions, unfamiliar world building and characters that are complicated and more unusual than I’m used to encountering. For me, Cry Wolf is one of those books. There’s a lot to be explained, and multiple fables that have their pieces woven into this tale, so I had to block out the everyday distractions so I could really delve into this story [...]

    5. I have to be honest when I say that this book was not really one of my favorites. I had a hard time just getting half way through it.This is a book that is based mainly on fairytales that I remember growing up on. The one that really sucks out the most in this read is the mother that lives in a shoe and has so many children she did not know what to do. This is one of the main parts of this book. The fairytales is not what turned me off on this read though. I am an avid reader when it comes to fi [...]

    6. Don't think I can finish this. There seems to be a decent story and interesting characters somewhere in there that I'd like to read, but the action is really hard to follow due to unnecessary and confusing language, including but not limited to copious amounts of awkward similes and metaphors. For all the descriptive adjectives, I rarely had a good sense of what was going on, wondering if a character was doing the killing in wolf or person form, for example, or having to read a passage twice to [...]

    7. I wasn't sure how I felt about this book at first, because it took me a while to get invested in it. There was a lot going on in the beginning and it just seemed like the intro took longer than I was expecting. However - once you got into the meat of the story it had me hooked. This story follows Peter 'the fox' and Luca 'the wolf' - two old friends who haven't seen each other in a very long time. Together they have to work to survive the chaotic situations that they often find themselves in. My [...]

    8. If you are in the mood for a great Darker Paranormal Read and a new world to dive into, this is for you. Greta Stone has a great imagination and puts a spin on so many classic tales you will remember from your child hood while bringing us a very adult story.I loved the Romance and how the relationship between them grew gradually and believably. I hate it when its the BAM and their in love type of thing. And the two main characters themselves were very well developed and had me interested in them [...]

    9. There is such a wide variety of old tales I grew up on as a child woven throughout this story and I absolutely loved that. Yes the novel is named after the Boy Who Cried Wolf and that one is present, but there are so many more surprising comparisons you get to make while reading. There is a lot that goes into this novel as you are in a new world the author has created and it does take a bit of time to catch up and understand it all.The relationships and characters really stole the show for me. I [...]

    10. This novel had a bit of a slow build to it. It is unique yet familiar in the way it depicts some old tales you may have heard as a child. There are ups and downs throughout the novel. Moments that are kind of slow and other parts that are fast paced and quick moving. There are some great moments of chemistry and heat between these two characters. Ultimately a solid M/M read.

    11. I'm going to have read this again. I really want to love it but feel like I received a Beta Proof instead of a finished book. I could practically see the red pencil marks with the little arrow suggesting different words or tense.

    12. **I received a copy of this book from Xpresso Book Tours in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own and not influenced by my source.**Those who are readily familiar with the adult paranormal and urban fantasy genres will gobble this up with no issue. You have lots of action, a slow burn romance and a suspenseful rebuilding the past story that will no doubt seize your attention.Check out more spoiler-free book and series reviews on my blog SERIESousBookReviews as well as read book [...]

    13. This is a fascinating and intriguing take on the big bad wolf, the fox and the hound and the boy who cried wolf. Not only fascinating but a great twist to the tales.The story comes from both Luca and Peter’s POV. I like Luca’s more only because they are more introspective. Peter is the more inquisitive one but also he is more insecure. He doesn’t really feel comfortable with who he is. He hates the idea of being a soul eater but he also does really understand the idea of freedom. It isn’ [...]

    14. 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 [...]

    15. This review originally appeared on BrizzleLass Books.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 [...]

    16. This book is a bit of a grab bag of different styles and genres, loosely following the old tale of Peter and the Wolf. The opening is from a lighthearted children’s fantasy, with a group of orphans living in a giant shoe preparing to do battle with stereotypical redneck invaders. (Most of these characters are not seen again until the final pages.) Then for 10% it’s an orgy of violence, as darker powers take over. Then the story literally moves to another world with a new backstory and anothe [...]

    17. Greta Stone builds a rich, vivid paranormal universe in Cry Wolf where all of our childhood fairy tales come to life - with a dark twist.Cry Wolf is a mash-up of The Boy Who Cried Wolf and The Fox and the Hound. Peter is a kitsune, a fox shifter whose body is a vessel for a demon. He's living in Granny's orphanage (There was an Old Woman Who Lived in a Shoe) along with dozens of other paranormal children. One day, he stops an attack by humans who are searching for a runaway werewolf, who just ha [...]

    18. I have to start by saying that there is nothing wrong with this book but it just wasn't my kind of thing and for that reason, I'm finding this review difficult to write. I have read many books with make-believe creatures in and loved them but I think this one was just too much for me. Based on many of our favourite childhood fables, this story is kind of a mish-mash of many of those but twisted around and retold, with the tale of Peter And The Wolf being at the forefront. This is of course still [...]

    19. A Joyfully Jay review. 2 starsDear reader, a word of caution: my synopsis of this book is far and away more coherent than anything in this whole entire book. It took me forever to slog through it because I dreaded turning every page, fearing I’d be slapped in the face with another set of unexplained circumstances that lead to another mini-adventure that does not play into a whole overarching theme.I found myself struggling to keep up with this overly involved plot. Chapter one is an endless ba [...]

    20. Cry Wolf by Greta Stone is a paranormal MM romance between two men who met and became friends as children. It had a good blend of paranormal with fantasy, and the love story was sweet and moved at a steady progression. However, there were times when it moved slowly or was confusing. I will also say that the ending didn't feel like it completely ended. I wouldn't call it a cliffhanger, but it wasn't all wrapped up in a nice little package. And I'm okay with that. It is set up for the next book in [...]

    21. Book Review originally published here: iheartreading/reviews/In Cry Wolf, Peter is a kitsune, a fox shifter, who has chaos following him wherever he goes. Luca is a wolf who has no past and likely no future either, if he can’t stay hidden in the shadows. When someone steals his howl, he’s forced to investigate, and that leads him to Peter, a fox who insists he and Luca used to be friends, once upon a time.Reminiscent of the story of The Fox and the Hound, and set in The Underwood, a dangerou [...]

    22. Re-imagine the tales you heard as a child. Then think of them in the perspective of LBGTQ+ communities. This will allow for you to see the world of fairytales and old folk tales in a different light. Take a look deeper past the tales and see the heart of it all. What you will find will be a beautiful love story that has no bounds or ends. You will need to take in the scenery on multiple levels and let go of the preconceptions you have about the fables you once heard. Open your mind and you will [...]

    23. A little too much going in the beginning with all the characters and different versions of the fairytales. Once I was able to settle my brain though, I really got into the story! We first meet the main characters at the beginning, but we don't get to really know the major players until later on in the story when snippets are told throughout. I liked that there wasn't an instasex connection. They both felt immediately attracted, but took a long time to build up to that attraction. I enjoyed the s [...]

    25. Familiar yet unique. The author really showed quite a bit of imagination with this novel.I liked that this novel challenged me to keep up. It is a new world and you have a lot to take in, but ultimately everything comes together rather nicely at the end.The connection and relationship between these characters was fun to read about. Will they, wont they? Do they like each other? Do they hate each other? What connects them? Can they put aside their differences and work together? There were just so [...]

    26. I think my main takeaway from this novel is that you get a lot more than you are expecting. Greta Stone really does a superb job of weaving together a story that is very versatile. Everything from characterization to the storyline was anything but one note. I loved the wit and humor that were laced throughout this novel to help cut through the tension at times. The relationship took me a bit to become invested in. I wasn't wholly sold on it and it took me a bit to warm up, but then again, isn't [...]

    27. Great re-invention of a classic story. Peter and Luca are complicated, charming and easy to follow in love with.The storytelling, however, needs some editing. The occasional typo/misspelling and grammatical are errors are bad enough but there are some really odd and clunky sentence constructions that will toss the reader out of immersion while trying to weaving in and out of meanings. I still loved the story and look forward to reading more by the author but be forewarned that you'll struggle th [...]

    28. This story was very entertaining, I was laughing at parts that have story book. They way the author put them in with this big paranormal twist was done so well I would not have thought possible. I liked Peters character and how he changes over the story. Luca's character was also quiet well written and to see him trying to put peaces together made for a good book.

    29. ExcellentCry wolf is an excellent read from beginning to the end. Luca and peter deserve more stories written about them.
