Their leap of faith could unleash magic—or plunge them into darkness.
Henry Thorn has worked at Larkin’s since graduating high school. He likes it—especially when he can use his secret skill of hiding inside shadows so his boss can’t find him. Without that talent, he would never have survived growing up different.
When a new hire enters the store, Henry’s other latent talent kicks in. He can smell an emotional response even before he lays eyes on the redhead.
Jamey Currey came out, and his conservative parents promptly kicked him out. He, too, is different—he senses Henry’s attraction the moment they meet. The first time they kiss, torrential rains fall from skies split by lightning.
Their kiss also awakens the Watchers, diabolical hunters who will stop at nothing—even extermination—to keep magic suppressed. With the help of a coven of friendly witches, the boys embark on a quest to discover an ancient key to restoring magic to the world, and to understand the mysteries of their own hearts.
I will admit that I wasn’t expecting to like this one as much as I did. I was pleasantly surprised by this story. The Werewolf and His Boy is full of mystery which kept me completely consumed by the story. This is paranormal to the extreme including witches, fae, spells, curses and everything in between.
Henry has always been different. Learning at a young age that he has certain abilities he uses them to his advantage when he can. He’s completely unprepared for the intense attraction he feels for his new coworker.
Surviving day to day after being disowned for being gay, Jamey Currey is happy to finally have a job. His attraction to his coworker doesn’t hurt either. Unfortunately, every time they’re together weird stuff keeps happening. And after having years of religious rhetoric instilled in this Jamey has a hard time with understanding what’s right and wrong.
Giving into the attraction only leads these boys deeper into the weird world they find themselves in. With the help from a good friend who has special abilities of her own the boys find themselves on the run and mired in mystery.
Like I mentioned earlier this was an unexpected surprise. There so much going on but it wasn’t so much that you got lost in the story. I enjoyed the pacing as well. The character were also something that I really liked….Henry and Jamey were incredibly endearing and as a reader I truly just wanted to best for them.
Overall, I really liked this different and unique shifters story it was a little light on the romance but you can’t help but be engrossed with everything that is going on.
