Robyn Meacher was abandoned at birth by her mother and never knew who her father was. Robyn has been bounced from foster home to foster home until she ends up at Highfields Foster Home under the care and supervision of the cruel Mrs. Alfrey. One day, Robyn is asked into Mrs. Alfrey’s office to meet Mr. Edward Durant who wants to become her foster father. Robyn is immediately suspicious because children are never fostered by single parents. Robyn also notices some strange things about Mr. Durant but she would rather take a chance with him then to remain one more day with Mrs. Alfrey.
Robyn fights everyday to keep control of her drug addiction now that she is clean, but there are days where strange things happen and she feels her resolve weaken. A stranger showing up almost everywhere she goes, Mr. Durant’s increasingly odd behavior and the secrets he is keeping from her. The mean spirited children Robyn goes to school with, until she makes friends with a shy boy named Patrick.
Then there are the Wolves of Androcolus. How do they fit into all their lives? What mysteries are uncovered and what consequences do those mysteries have in store for Robin, her new dad (Mr. Durant), and her friend Patrick?
The Wolves of Androcolus is written so well that it pulls you in and makes you feel like you are a part of the book. I could feel and understand Robyn’s mistrust and her curiosity. I laughed with her, was sad for her, and empathized with Robyn, her dad (Mr. Durant), and even Patrick. Author Barnabus Corbin is able to bring his story to life with his words. As I read The Wolves of Androcolus, I could picture everything that was going on in my mind just like I was watching a movie through his words.
