    DNF at 20%. I really tried with this book, but when trying involves just skipping huge parts and hoping the book gets better... It's not really salvageable. The writing was very basic. The sentence structure and phrases were ones that I've read a million times, but not as well done.

I just can't stand this transparent type of character development. The plot was so stilted and stereotypical, with the angry, orphaned teenager being suddenly trained by a blacksmith before quickly going to join a mercenary company. The descriptive elements of the text seemed to focus on all the wrong things. There were so many cliches in this writing and plot that I was literally groaning out loud as I read it and exclaiming "come on, you can't be serious!" To the author, you wrote a book and that's something to be proud of. However, not every book needs to be published. I advise you to practice your art a little more before your next publication.

You can tell he's enjoying reading it as much as we are listening.

    There was lots of sword action, some lustful action, and hints of supernatural. The story line was somewhat disjoint and seemed clumsy at times but made for a quick read. I would not recommend this book for someone looking for a detailed epic action book, but for those wanting a simple story this should do nicely to burn away a rainy day.

He decided to join the wolves but even here he was to find a swordmaster who seemed to hate his guts at first sight and who was the meanest bastard ever - Taskala.

So Corin vowed that firstly he would avenge his family and later avenge his lover - the warrior Yasrana who was killed when Taskala betrayed his own wolves. Corin was the leaf in the wind, the harbinger, the vital pawn and the fulcrum. He was the chosen by the Gods and watched over by the fates - past, present and future. He was a man of courage and nobility and honour as declared by his fellow wolves, so was he to die like a common criminal, for killing the traitorous Teskala? Halfdan - the King's brother and leader of the wolves seems to know something about Corin which Corin himself has no clue about! What does he know about Corin's past? When Corin left the wolves he went solo and turned into the Gray wolf! Women seem to really fall for him and one might even be his downfall or not!! This book is the first in the series legends of Ansu and it has all that a sword and sorcery fantasy epic saga should have, heroes, traitors, warriors, pirates, kings, war and love, honour and overall the Gods! Highly recommend this great read and am dying to read the next in the series!!

    This is a book which takes you back to the beginning of Corin an Fol’s story. From his childhood in Finnehalle, as a fourteen year old, when he witnesses Crenise pirates attacking his village. His parents and siblings are killed, with his older sister being taken captive, to be sold as a slave. He instantly becomes an orphan and this alters his life completely. He acts on his own accord, doesn’t bother to do much of any work and just expects others to pay his way. He hasn’t grown up as such. Afte This is a book which takes you back to the beginning of Corin an Fol’s story. From his childhood in Finnehalle, as a fourteen year old, when he witnesses Crenise pirates attacking his village. His parents and siblings are killed, with his older sister being taken captive, to be sold as a slave. He instantly becomes an orphan and this alters his life completely. He acts on his own accord, doesn’t bother to do much of any work and just expects others to pay his way. He hasn’t grown up as such. After years of this, the local innkeeper’s wife is fed up with his behaviour and he gets sent off to work with the local blacksmith. The blacksmith ends up taking him to a nearby city and leaving him to sign up with the elite Wolf Regiment, which he himself was once part of. Unfortunately for Corin, he soon makes an enemy of the swordmaster of the regiment and one of the recruit’s main trainers, Taskala. There are three regiments, the Bears, the Tigers and the Wolves and it seems the favoured Tigers are yet again being left out of the fighting to come by their patron, Cashwallon. The Wolves are sent in first to each engagement, as Cashwallon wants them disbanded as a regiment. The recruits first job is fighting desert tribesman, after the local sultan asks the king for help. They get stuck fighting in this local civil war, which has nothing to do with where any of them even live. Corin has to fight to survive the treacherous war between different factions and also keep safe from the corrupt leaders at the top of his totem pole. He is caught in a quest to find his long lost sister, whether dead or alive, and keep out of Taskala’s way. He hates him even more now, after he left his mark on Corin and does something even worse – but that would be telling! Issues come to a head when Taskala sets his aim on Corin’s love life and the woman he is falling in love with. What Corin will do and where he will end up, is set out in the following pages. This is the first book of five that will feature Corin and continue the tale of his life and the events in it. His path will be a dark one, chosen by the Gods to walk a certain path. This was a book I read straight through, as quickly as I could. It kept my attention from the very start, with the fate of Corin’s family and then the war and struggles he takes part in. The main characters are interesting and I loved Rana and the mystery woman who appears throughout the book. A great story and I shall look out for the next in the series. I received an ARC copy of this book from Hidden Gems and I have freely given my own opinion of the book above.

    I really enjoyed Gray Wolf! Corin an Fol watched as his family was murdered by pirates in a raid on their village. Only one of his sisters survived the raid, but she was taken by the pirates. This sets Corin’s life on self destructive path, until he gets an opportunity to join the Wolves, a group of warriors that provide structure and camaraderie to his life.

Corin fights in a war and survives bloody battles, all while he works toward his goal of revenge on the man who stole his sister and killed his family. I really enjoyed the story of Corin, as he grows from a troubled teenager to a strong young warrior. It took me a bit to get into the story, but by 15% or so, I was hooked. I liked the characters and the writing in this story. I think the world building was quite good as well. Since I listened to the audiobook, I didn’t get to see a map of the world (which I don’t actually know of the ebook has, but it’s pretty common for them to have maps), so sometimes I found it difficult to follow along with where Corin was going in the world. I did get a basic idea of the geography from the writing, but I personally really like when books have maps. There isn’t much magic in this book, only brief mentions of sorcery, and I hope that’s something that will be built upon later in the series. J. W. Webb packed a lot into a book that isn’t super long, but it didn’t feel rushed to me. There are some long segments of time that are skipped over, but it was always clear to me that there was a time jump, and I never felt like I was missing important character or plot development. The narrator of the audiobook was Andrew McDermott and he did a good job. I found his accent took a little while to get used to but it wasn’t difficult for me to understand except when he was saying unfamiliar words like people or place names. His voices for some characters, like the main character Corin, were quite distinct, but I sometimes found the more minor characters voices more difficult to distinguish. Overall it was a very good performance of a great story and I’m already listening to the 2nd book in the series! I would recommend it to anyone who likes medieval fantasy! I received a free copy of this audiobook from the author and I’m voluntarily leaving an honest review.

    Gray it's about Corin An Fol who was orphaned at a young age because raiders killed his family and kidnapped his older sister. He wants to avenge his family and later decides to join The Wolves to become a warrior. Gray Wolf has elements of Sword & Sorcery, Gods, Warriors, and Celtic Myth. So if you like those elements in a Fantasy story then this book will be a treat.

    This is a review of the Audible version. The story took a few chapters to get into, but once it had its footing it moved along quite nicely. This tale follows Corin an Fol. It begins with a raid on his village and the slaying of his parents and the kidnapping of his sister. And continues up through his time as a soldier. Corin was a lot like James Bond or Will Riker because he was always shacking up with the ladies. I felt this detracted from the overall story and thus deducted a star.

    J.W. Webb delivers an interesting tale in Grey Wolf. The plot and world were well constructed, as were the characters in general. My only real issue was the author's excessive use of blind luck and outside help to save the main character from death. Once is fine, but several instances is a bit too much deus ex machina. I received a free copy of this book and the review is voluntary.

    I really enjoyed this book. The world Mr Webb writes about is so easy to envision. It’s a grim place with sadness and despair. Our main character Corin an Fol doesn’t have it easy. An agonizing past that haunts him. An unknown future. It’s a great back story and does well to fill in any questions if you haven’t started with this book.

    Love this story ! A young man survives tragedy and saved by the fates...destiny to be fulfilled. A warrior tale, tragedy, betrayal and looking for his sister...but is there more to this warrior. This is a tale of capture,war and revenge but also the tale of one man's destiny.

I guess Full review here I’m reading J.W Webb’s books in the wrong order! Gray Wolf turned up on Netgalley and I realised it had been a while since I had visited Gol. This is set before Shattered Crown, offering the origins story of Corin an Fol and how he came to be the mercenary we know and love in the following books. It’s been a couple of years since I read Shattered Crown and I have to admit to not remembering any of it. I had a look through my review though and discovered I rather enjoyed it. I guess I liked this book. I certainly didn’t dislike it. But it lacked depth for me and I found connecting to the characters difficult. There was nothing that made me properly empathise with them and considering the violent nature of some of the book, that was a shame because it would have made it an intense read. The story follows Corin as he leaves home and learns how to fight and become a warrior. He’s petulant and stubborn at the start, a lazy young man who thinks menial work is below him. That attitude changes and he embraces hard work when he sees the benefit in it for him: becoming a strong warrior. Corin is initially dismissive of his fellow recruits and although he softens, he doesn’t strike any true friendships. That lack of connection made it hard to see a depth to him. That’s not to say he doesn’t feel; Corin falls in love, has a happy few years and then has everything stripped from him. But, again, although he obviously grieves, he also moves on pretty quick. His character lacked depth. As the entire story was focused on how he becomes the man we know later on, that was disappointing. This is not a long book and considering it spans a number of years, events happen at a steady speed. There are several gaps in the timeline in order to get the characters to where they need to be for the next set of events to take place. That didn’t help with the development; you don’t see how they get there, they’re just suddenly there. I’m finding this review such a struggle to write. I didn’t dislike the book. I didn’t particularly like it either. It fell flat for me, and maybe that was my fault for having high expectations. The writing is strong and there were a few descriptions I highlighted due to the prose used. There wasn’t unnecessary information (a problem I had in Shattered Crown) and the dialogue was both accurate and amusing. It lacked a spark though. Missing the connection to the main character while knowing it is his development story made it hard to truly engage with this one. That being said, it’s a short book. It’s a quick read that fleshes out one of the characters from the later books. If you’ve enjoyed the other Gol fantasy books, then I’d read it just to complete the set.

This is the first of five books in a series and believe me when I say the rest of the series is on my wish list! Corin is not the type of "heroic" character you are immediately drawn to but he definitely wins you over in the end with his fierce loyalty and willingness to risk himself for those he cares about. There are numerous questions left unanswered at the end of the book and I can't wait to pick up the next one!
