Now Jenn is on a quest to learn more about the father she never knew and the strange artifact he left behind. Her search pulls her into a bizarre world of masked vigilantes, demonic wizards, genetically-altered paramilitary soldiers, and mystical realms outside her own.

The Wolf Stone Saga Theme Song (Listen while reading these books, and now, this review!)-
Supernatural and superhumans rarely work together but J.D. Oliva’s The Wolf Stone Saga is an excellent example of how magic, horror and superpowers can be told without confusing the readers.
The Wolf Stone Saga has Jennifer Greywolf as the protagonist, with her family’s Wolf Stone or talisman giving her special powers but also a lot of trouble because the stone is precious in the eyes of evil people as well. Surviving as a child, fighting as a teen and now thriving as an adult, Jennifer has been through a lot since her birth. In this novel, Jennifer gets involved into a murder investigation and thankfully she is not alone. Bryan Fox helps her.
Jennifer finds that the things are complicated and there are many more people involved in the plot to steal her family’s stone. Now, besides people trying to have world domination, Jennifer has to worry about a cult, and a voice that she starts hearing. It is slowly revealed who the voice is and what the intentions are but all of this helps Jennifer to know much more about her family’s werewolf history and her supernatural heritage.
Murder mysteries, masked superhumans and supernatural beings from other dimensions are some of the challenges she has to overcome during her investigation. Brian Fox and Jennifer Greywolf funnily get called “Wolf & Fox Detective Agency” by Dana O’Brien, an independent journalist whom the readers met in the successful novels by J.D. Oliva- Harvest Moon, and Devil’s Prayer.
Besides Dana O’Brien, there are references to some names and events from the Books of Jericho novels and also the Harvest Moon. This links the Books of Jericho and other novels to the Wolf Stone Saga, which made me pleasantly surprised as the universe created by J.D. Oliva starts to make this series even more exciting. The storytelling style of The Wolf Stone Saga continues as we see the story of Jennifer happening in 2021 and also of John Greywolf happening in 1945. With many other chapters showing us perspectives of other characters, including antagonists and victims.
The novel has horror, superhuman action, humor and some life philosophy too. I loved small details added by J.D.Oliva like the Native American identity discussion, the importance of life and feelings of those who lose their loved ones due to a tragedy. For example, John Greywolf tells a Detective this about the importance of life when that Detective feels like everyone’s life is meaningless- “This isn’t good, kid. This life might be crap, but it’s the only one we got. Trust me, I’ve walked on the other side. This is better.” So, this thriller novel is much more than just an entertaining book. J.D. Oliva has also added his wisdom to it. This is why there are so many fans of J.D. Oliva’s books. This novel is great for teens and above because it doesn’t have anything explicit except some violence, horror and mild language.
In conclusion, J.D. Oliva’s Black Dog novel from The Wolf Stone Saga is an entertaining, scary, and action-packed treat for those who love horror, superheroes and some good humor too! This 388 paged novel is totally worth your time and money. Highly recommended!
