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 talen

The Werewolf and His Boy is a paranormal hodgepodge with Shifters, Godlings aka Fae, DemiGods, Greek mythology, guardian animals, keepers, Witches, Watchers, Demons and mundanes (non-paranormal beings). The only thing missing was Vampires, unicorns, and mermaids - maybe they will be in book 2 --

The Werewolf and His Boy takes multiple paranormal aspects and blends them together in a unique story that keeps the adrenaline high and will demand your attention, so be prepared to keep up!

Both main characters, Henry and Jamey, are timid and try not to call attention to themselves, both preferring to remain off anyone's radar. But the pull they have to each other once they meet makes that virtually impossible once things in the story are set in motion. Neither young man has any idea of who and

So this... wasn't great. I mean, I wasn't expecting some grand piece of literature or something, I was mostly expecting gay werewolf erotica, which is kind of what it was billed to me as, but I... did not really even get that? What I got was a confusing, not-terribly-written-but-not-like, well -written book that had like two, not really all that described sex scenes. This is urban fantasy, but also, like, dystopian? It wasn't explained well and that

This book loses me for it's general pacing, but did have me interested with some its unique themes and ideas. It had parts that really caught me and made me want to read more, but to segue into another section that despite the action would be slow and depressing, or have drama just for drama's sake. This left me wishing that it could have been a bit different, for there were parts of an interesting story in there, but what came out was not something that I cohesively enjoyed.

This started off wi

An interesting paranormal read. At times it has its own originality. The characters were interesting and brought their own aspect to the book. A quick and decent read.

An intriguing supernatural adventure. I really liked the overall concept with the Watchers and such but had a difficult time getting into the characters and the story itself.

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

****Reviewed for Prism Book Alliance®****

I wanted to like The Werewolf and His Boy, I really did. It had a lot of good elements; the lore behind magic and magical creatures was an interesting twist to current mythology. I really liked the slightly mundane pets – not to be confused with the magical shifter Pets. Jamey’s powers were interesting as were Henry’s.

However, I hated the fanatical religious portrayal of Jamey’s family. It was so over the top as to be comical. I wasn’t quite sure if this

This was a interesting take on good vs. bad. I love how we have two completely different types of men come together and fall in love. I like the struggle that Jamey goes through in accepting who he is, who he loves and finding peace and understanding with Henry. I wasn’t thrilled with Jamey when he threw his tantrum and hurt Henry’s feelings. I mean Henry didn’t make you love him, he didn’t put you in this situation for you made your own decisions and Henry is in the same boat as Jamey. For Jame ...more

A Joyfully Jay review.

2.5 stars


In the week leading up to Halloween, I wanted to immerse myself in a great paranormal story and during the first several chapters I thought The Werewolf and His Boy would be exactly what I was looking for. Unfortunately, though, Warren Rochelle’s novel fell flat for me.

I liked how Rochelle tried to make The Werewolf and His Boy stand out from others in the genre and the mix between mythology and magic is a good hook, but for me, the background elements became too

This was an interesting read for me because it is not something I would have picked up in a bookstore. The story is more of a romance than horror, but it works. Henry and Jamey are young men who struggle with their love for each other, as well as being a werewolf and a godling. While the werewolf is not a typical "mainstream" werewolf of most books and movies, this isn't a bad thing. I haven't read about a godling before, so that was another interesting aspect for me. I feel there is enough acti ...more

If you like books where characters save the world through gay sex (with the aid of a handy dandy gay sex manual), this is one of those. Lots of places for slapstick comedy, but the author has the comedic value of Watership Down.

Spoilers:

This story stars a character who says shadows have colors and throughout the story will describe the wind as having color and sound as having color, will be capable of smelling a person's sexual preference, and is extremely technophobic and has never used a compu

I really enjoyed this read!

I found it unique, but also enjoyed the connection with the characters, which I found very easy to make. I liked the main boy, as he was very different. The fact that he found it hard to fit in, but survived by using his talents made his exciting and someone that I enjoyed reading about and getting to know.

I found the plot and detail in the story to be very good. I feel that the blurb adequately describes it, and the author does well to create and hold an intriguing

Well written fantasy that also contains a lot of insights into relationships . The characters were well described and emotions explained but does contain sexually explicit scenes so not suitable for everyone . The plot was well developed and contained several twists making the book difficult to put down.

It's an interesting read. Unique and captivating storyline. Not my favourite book genre, but I found it a nice read.
I received a free copy of this book from the Goodreads First Reads program. Thanks for sending me this.
