Marvelous Middle Grade Monday: Wolf Storm (& a Giveaway!)

Wolf Storm by Dee Garretson hits bookshelves TOMORROW! After receiving an advance reading copy, I'm excited to be promoting this marvelous middle grade read. And not only that -- one signed hardcover copy of Wolf Storm will be given to a commenter on this post! The giveaway is courtesy of Dee Garretson herself who I've been honored to 'meet' via Twitter. Comment by 11:59pm CST on Thursday, September 1, to enter the giveaway!

The premise: Stephan is living a dream - starring in his first movie role and on location in the Carpathian Mountains of Slovakia for the filming of what's sure to be a blockbuster. Trained wolves are characters in the movie, but Stephan is sure wild wolves are hauntingly close to their set. On and off set trouble with already-famous co-star Raine Randolph threatens Stephan's dream. And then......a blizzard strikes.

What keeps readers reading: Action, action, action! This novel is packed with it. Suspense keeps readers turning pages and Dee Garretson takes readers on an intense ride in Wolf Storm, but she also develops characters who captivate readers. You will (literally) cheer these characters through the storm. Prior to the blizzard, most adults on the set headed to a village down the mountain. The storm hits and isolates those left on the mountain - including the trained wolves and some hungry wild ones. When Stephan realizes that Raine, younger co-star Jeremy, and older co-star Cecil are depending on him and his choices for survival, Stephan plunges ahead with bravery, leadership, and courage. His choices determine far more than he ever dreamed when he took this starring role.
