More than just one story of danger, intrigues and adventure, Cory Barclay’s IN THE COMPANY OF WOLVES is a slice of the times, weaving different pieces together into a fictionalized accounting of the chaos of late 16th century Europe.

Rowaine has had enough on board a pirate ship with a brutal captain. A strong and fearless woman who believes in fairness, she undertakes to overthrow the captain. While successful, that action will change the lives of the crew and her closest allies. She will find t

It’s September kids, and you know what that means! Eerie moonlight, creatures waking from the dead, torture chambers and stealing. Witch hunts and religious persecution, prostitutes and pirates. Poison, potions and pillaging!

Tis the season to be demented and murderous!

Welcome to Europe in 1592, where you can be burned alive for false accusations and having your own beliefs! Say hello to book 2 in

In The Company of Wolves we continue where Devil in the Countryside (click here for the review) left us. In this book we follow three groups of travelers – a awesome fearless female pirate, a priest and his wife who escaped to England to avoid persecution, and a young thief from the slums of Germany. All have different reasons for venturing out in these times.

Is the Werewolfof Bedburg still alive? Killing the innocent and roaming around freely? Many believe he’s

This book was great. All the things I love in a book, from pirates, mystery, violence, family, love to witches, werewolves and so much more. The story kept me reading more and I did like this one as much as book 1 if not more. I am glad not only did America have some down falls but other countries did as well. * I received this copy for free and this is my honest review*

In the Company of Wolves, Cory continues the story he began with Devil in the Countryside. The story is expertly written, just as the first in the series was written. The author takes three characters along their journey to find what they’re looking for and eventually the three stories are cleverly braided together. If you like the Gothic, or just a good story, buy it and read it.

I read the first book in the trilogy "The Devil in the Countryside" while on vacation last Halloween, so I have saved book #2 to also read on vacation for this Halloween. This book just didn't feel as tense to me as the first, although it certainly was.

The actual, historical event this book is based on is the spate of witch burnings in the Cologne area in the 1540s. However, that historical event really isn't emphasized, in my opinion. The story begins a couple of years after Sybil and Dieter ha

In the Company of Wolves is aptly named. We return a few years after the events in its predecessor, Devil in the Countryside. We already know a few of the characters and are introduced to a new set of interesting ones. The entirety of the book follows the perspective of four in particular: Rowaine, a female pirate; Gustav, a man in the search of revenge; Sybil, a refuge trying to earn a safe life with her family; and Hugo, Sybil’s younger brother who is trying to find his way in the world. Each ...more

A number of years have passed since the devil in the countryside walked away through a misty fog. Since then, Dieter Nicolaus has removed his collar and married Sybil Griswold. Together, they have a child named after Sybil’s father, Peter, the man falsely convicted of being the werewolf of Bedburg. At their side is Martin Achterberg, who helps them with young Peter. The four of them live peacefully free of the past in Norfolk, England. That is, until the arrival of a strange man who grows herbs ...more

Interesting continuation of book 1, but a little unpleasant

Overall, I am enjoying this series. The time period is both fascinating and horrifying, something Barclay captures extremely well. I am impressed with the enormity of research interwoven throughout the book. The details are not oppressive, but provide context for the reader to both appreciate and vicariously experience the sights, smells, and sounds of the time period. As well, each main character is given his or her own chapter, enablin

This was definitely a dark and bloody book, but not in the usual werewolf sense. This book by Cory Barclay instead told the horrific story of the violent religious struggle between Protestants & Catholics in the 1500s which of course included all the burning at the stake of witches, demon worshipers, etc. who were simply people who disagreed with whatever religion the people in power wanted to enforce upon the people withing their kingdoms. It did also hint that there may be a wolf hidden inside ...more

Interesting and a bit creepy

Enjoyed following along the path with these characters. Glad I wasn't really there. The author brought in some of the crazy things that rulers did back when people were believed to be witches and society would believe whatever their rulers told them. Crazy time in our history and good back drop for an exciting story with witches and pirates.
