On My Wishlist (5)

On My Wishlist is a weekly meme hosted by Book Chick City.

Dust City by Robert Weston

Summary:

Who’s afraid of the big bad wolf?

His son, that’s who.

Ever since his father’s arrest for the murder of Little Red Riding Hood, teen wolf Henry Whelp has kept a low profile in a Home for Wayward Wolves…until a murder at the Home leads Henry to believe his father may have been framed.

Now, with the help of his kleptomaniac roommate, Jack, and a daring she-wolf named Fiona, Henry will have to venture deep into the heart of Dust City: a rundown, gritty metropolis where fairydust is craved by everyone—and controlled by a dangerous mob of Water Nixies and their crime boss leader, Skinner. Can Henry solve the mystery of his family’s sinister past? Or, like his father before him, is he destined for life as a big bad wolf? (Source:Goodreads)

I love the sound of this, even though it involves werewolves it definitely sounds completely original. I can’t wait to read it!

    I recieved an ARC of that from Razorbill and it was amazing. It is not about werewolves. It is kind of taking up where Little Red Riding Hood left off. I reviewed it on my blog, if you wanna read more about it.

    This is not a book I've heard of before and sounds like an interesting read. I hope you get a copy of it soon.
