Cynthia Garner’s Tori Joseph on Preternatural Scottsdale, Arizona from SECRET OF THE WOLF

Hi there! I’m Victoria Joseph, Tori to my friends. I’m a preternatural. If you’re new around here, that means I’m one of those beings who came through one of the rifts opened by the Moore-Creasy-Devon comet. Mine was in 1866. Let me tell you up front: I’m a werewolf. Now, don’t be scared. I don’t eat people. I rarely even chase ’em anymore. (That’s a joke. It’s okay to laugh.)

My job as werewolf liaison to the Council of Preternaturals keeps me pretty busy. I liaise between council members and the werewolf community in my quadrant, plus I’m part of the law enforcement arm of the council. What that means is that I investigate crimes involving werewolves, from minor disturbing the peace complaints to gruesome murders. And when a werewolf is involved, believe me, the murders are pretty gruesome.

On my down time, though, I like to hang out at a local club called the Devil’s Domain. It’s a popular place with preternaturals. As a matter of fact, I’m heading inside now, so why don’t you come with me? There’s a nice open area here at the front door, and a nice sized bar. The bartenders are all vampires, and they are killer mixologists. Actually, just about all of the employees are vampires. The owner’s one, too, and he tends to hire his own kind as employees.

There’s a large dance floor—it’s always packed—and booths and a few tables at the back. They don’t serve meals here, but they have a fairly large selection of appetizers. For the vamps, there are also rooms in the back, behind the wall of booths, where they can snack in private. The only non-vamps allowed past security are those who are planning to be donors or have been invited for other purposes. From what I hear, lots of clandestine planning goes on in those rooms—it’s all very political at times, even in the pret community.

Music’s loud, voices are louder, and sometimes the tension between pret clans results in fights breaking out in the club. But that’s what the bouncers are for.

Vampires, shapeshifters of every ilk, various types of fey, demons and humans all come here. Next time you’re in town, why don’t you stop in?

One copy of SECRET OF THE WOLF by Cynthia Garner


Published on June 26th 2012 by Forever


Once a generation, the rift between the paranormal world and the human world opens, allowing supernatural entities to cross. Vampire, demon, or shapeshifter, they can save the world-or send it spiraling into chaos.

As a werewolf liaison to the Council of Preternaturals, Tori Joseph is used to straddling the world between humans and immortals. She plays by the rules and always delivers justice, no matter the cost. But after a string of increasingly brutal attacks results in humans turning into werewolves, Tori doesn’t reveal her horrifying suspicion: Someone very close to her might be responsible.

Investigating the paranormal violence, no-nonsense detective Dante MacMillan believes Tori is hiding something. His search for the truth draws him into greater danger as he gets closer to the dark realm of the immortals-and to the sexy werewolf who stirs his primal lust. Now with evil closing in around them, Dante must convince Tori to trust him . . . before her deadly secret destroys them both.

    I keep hearing that publishers don’t want werewolves anymore due to low reader count but am so glad when the books keep coming out as I LOVE them. Do you find more publishers saying this, Cynthia?

  3. Viki S.

    I’m always happy to see when I come upon a new to me author that I can read the series books as stand alones. It lets me see if I’d like it without too much commitment.
    Your cover artist did a great job with the eyes – wow!

    Am I the only one who wants to go to Devil’s Domain? No? Didn’t think so, lol. This book sounds really great. Thanks so much for the great post/introduction to Tori and the book.

  5. anna

    I’ve seen this book quite a few times now and really can’t wait to read it. LOVE shifters and the set up sounds fantastic.

    I think it is time for some appetizers and dancing – heading out to Scottsdale ;=D Thank you for sharing with us today, I am really looking forward to reading Secret of the Wolf!

  8. Cynthia Garner

    Thanks, everyone, for stopping by! Good luck with the giveaway!

    What I hear most of the time is, if you’re going to do werewolf (or vampire), your take on it needs to be different from what everyone else has done, or it’s just the same ol’ same ol’, and they’re not interested in that.

    Thanks again, y’all!

    I love the Scottsdale area – lived there for a short period of time growing up and I miss it so much.

    Hi there! I saw this on the All Things Urban Fantasy site, and I’m definitely interested. I’m a history buff who loves mysteries of all kinds, and immortals or preternatural creatures are a definite plus. I’m sure I’d love this series. Thanks for offering the giveaway!

    I have had this series on my to buy list for quite a while now. I would love to win a copy of Secret of the Wolf! Thanks for the awesome giveaway!

  14. LisaC

    It sounds like the hero is human and the heroine is the shifter. I have usually seen it the other way around, so I’m all for something different.

  15. Mickie T

    Kiss of the Vampire was good, and Secrets of the Wolf looks even better. Can’t wait to read it.

    It’s a little frustrating when you can not participate, but that is the way it is. I find it a lot of books/series and if I stay to read it all, I think I’ll never do anything else. So, I chose a few “guides” and ATUF is one of them. Thanks!
