Wolf of Stone
(The Gypsy Healer Series, Book 2)
by Quinn Loftis
Jewel Stone was wholly unaware of the ancient bloodlines of Gypsy Healers, mates to Canis lupis and protectors of the packs – much less that she carried that blood herself. But when a beautiful but deadly woman showed up in her home and ripped her from her realm, she knew her life would never be the same. Her mother, Gem, a fortune teller, had warned her that something was coming, that her life was about to change dramatically, but like everyone else, Jewel had dismissed her as a crazy person.
Jewel was the laughing stock of her school simply because Gem was her mother. And up until now, her life was one big disappointment after another. Instead of heeding her mother’s warning, she hid in her books, burying herself behind knowledge, both fact and fiction. She escaped into worlds created by others and filled her mind with facts of every kind in an effort to push away the hurtful words that others bombarded her with. Despite all of her knowledge and all of her fantastical stories, she never dreamed her own future would be full of adventure, danger, passion, and the possibility of unconditional love. As she lay unconscious after her first bloody encounter in the fae realm, her only chance of survival lay in the hands of a man scarred by his past, disfigured both emotionally and physically, and beyond the reach of any who had tried to help him.
Can two broken people, who carry the other half of each other’s souls, span the chasm between them and restore the innocence ripped from both their lives? Will they let the promise of healing love overcome the difference in age and experience, and the separation of species and realms? Or will they give in to the fear and doubt that would keep them from one another for eternity?
My Review ❈❈❈❈❈
Oh.My.Gosh!! I think this book gave me several more grey hairs! But I absolutely loved every minute of it! Jewel has had one heck of a time so far in this new supernatural world she’s been thrust into. Poor thing is unconscious now, thanks to a raving lunatic, so she can’t even rely on the strength of the other girls that have found themselves in the same new world. Then there’s Dalton… Tall, dark, handsome, furry, and full of uncontrollable rage. You know, your typical werewolf. But there’s so much guilt built up inside him over his past he can’t accept the possibility of a mate as pure and vulnerable as Jewel. (Stubborness: also a typical werewolf trait) There is some serious pain and agony in this book, my heart breaks for these two over and over. But there is so much beauty in the mate bond that it makes it bearable. I’ve fallen in love with all these new characters just as I did all the Grey Wolves before them. I can’t wait to see where the journey takes them!
