I must say I enjoyed the first book a tad bit more, however, this one still deserves the rating of five stars. It kept a steady pace, and offered a few surprises you don’t see coming. As I did in the first book, I enjoyed Barclay’s way of descriptions. It’s so vivid, it’s as if I’m seeing the scene unfold.
My only issue is that sometimes the obvious tends to be stated through the narrative. Maybe it’s just me, but for example, in the beginning, one of the characters begins stuttering when he speaks. After I read his dialogue, I thought, “OK, he stutters.” Then in the next sentence, the narrative explains the fact that he stutters. There were a few more instances, but it wasn’t so much that it would knock any points off.
As always, the characters were well-developed and I enjoyed learning about most of them, especially Hugo. As a young boy trying to find his place in the world, he goes in a direction that surprises him and he’s unsure about. I’m sure many of us can relate to that in real life.
It’s not needed to read the first book before this one, though I highly recommend it. While, yes, the first one may have its flaws, it was a truly excellent introduction to the series. In the Company of Wolves, however, does give you the background you’ll need to appreciate the story.
It takes place a few years later, 16th century Europe, during a period of major religious strife and witch-hunt madness. With 3 separate stories developing, I thought things might get confusing but the action never stops, making each theme easy to follow. In fact, the pages fly by (cliche notwithstanding, I literally couldn't put it down).
The overall story has everything: pirates, mystery, violence, religion, politics, family, love. With enough twists to keep the pages turning. Without giving up any spoilers, following the characters as they make their way toward the grand finale -- against a backdrop of historical European society in full swing -- was great fun and non-stop excitement. Barclay's writing is smooth, his characters colorful and well-developed, his story lines fascinating.
If you thought America went crazy during its Salem witch-hunt days, wait till you read what Europe was doing! My only question is when's the next book?
Is the Werewolf of Bedburg still alive? Killing the innocent and roaming around freely? Many believe he’s still out there.
As each traveler searches for their individual answers, these three seemingly separated stories slowly merge to one. Will each traveler find the answer they need?
I noticed I never thanked Cory for my review copy for Devil in the Countryside! Hereby, thank you so much for that review copy, and for this one!
I have to admit, I forgot quite a lot of things from Devil in the Countryside. But, while reading this book, a lot of it came back slowly.
I enjoyed this book so much, I think even more than the first book. I especially loved our female pirate captain. She was so amazing! Cory Barclay wrote about her like the readers knew her for ages. As if she was in the first book! I think she was the best character in this book. God, I need a book just about her. ~fangirls some more~
We also meet some characters we already knew from Devil in the Countryside. But those characters are so different from the first book. Note this book takes place two years after the first book. But sometimes you read books, that take place years after the first book, but the characters haven’t changed at all, it doesn’t even seem like they aged and learned from the things that happened. But that is in some books, but not in this one! The characters learned from their past, and it just makes them feel even more real. Almost as if they were alive at some point in history!
Overall, this book was very fast paced and it didn’t have the information overload book #1 sometimes had. Which got me even more in the story, it was so hard to stop reading!
I so recommend these series, I cannot wait to read the third installment!
I gave this book 4,5 stars.
