This book didn’t receive ENOUGH hype. I loved it from the first lines:
“Once upon a time, fairydust came from where you’d expect. From fairies…”
To the last line. DUST CITY features a smart heartwarming main character that happens to be a wolf. This summary from Goodreads sums it up pretty well:
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?
This book was gritty and had me cringing at some moments; but the mystery, the description, the way Weston easily leads you from one page to the next kept me riveted. I loved this book and I think it deserves a lot more attention than it got. So I’m giving away my copy!
