Peter Holmes is a complicated guy, having been trained to work in child porn by his parents before he turned them in to the police. He’s also a lycanthrope who doesn’t know he’s cursed, and who thinks his worst problem in life is lousy parents. He’s half right, anyway. Peter’s story is a dark fantasy that should appeal to fans of Anne Rice, Maggie Stiefvater, John A. Lindqvist, and Stephenie Meyer.
Told in a first-person stream of consciousness narrative style, Peter the Wolf chronicles the bumpy life of a foster child trying to adapt to life in a new foster family and come to terms with his twisted upbringing. At first wary of being returned to the youth treatment center, Peter warms to the Preston family. He develops an obsession for gymnastics with influence from his younger neighbor, Alice Culpepper and makes other friends, finds work, and begins the long process of training for his first competition. For a brief time, Peter even believes it’s possible for him to live a normal life.
But some family roots cannot be pulled free, and the wolf blood that Peter carries is changing him into a raging monster with every full moon. The sexual grooming forced upon him by his parents also drives his predatory nature, moving him closer to Alice though he knows he should be keeping his distance.
Then the unthinkable happens, and Peter’s mother, Naomi Lupita, escapes from prison. When she hunts down Peter to seek revenge, everything in Peter’s new life is threatened. But Peter is a skinwalker, a race of werewolf who needs a tanned hide to complete their transformation. Without finding his skin, Peter may not have the strength to face his mother and survive.
