A Look at Lycanthropy (and a great Adult Fantasy Book by I.R. Harris with Wolves)

Since Halloween was yesterday, and everyone still has their decorations up, and are still enjoying their Halloween candy (or leftovers), I thought I'd share another "Spooky" word and a great Adult Fantasy Book by I.R. Harris with Wolves! 

WORD:   lycanthrope 
PRONOUNCIATION:   lahy-kuh n-throhp, lahy-kan-throhp] 
1. a person affected with lycanthropy.
2. a werewolf or alien spirit in the physical form of a bloodthirsty wolf.
WHAT IS A WEREWOLF? A werewolf, also known as a lycanthrope is a mythological or folkloric human with the ability to shapeshift into a wolf or a therianthropic hybrid wolf-like creature, either purposely or after being placed under a curse or affliction (e.g. via a bite or scratch from another werewolf).
   The concept of a werewolf dates back centuries to ancient cultures. It gathered more attention during the middle ages at the same time as witchcraft.  To see a long history, go to: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Werewolf
My friend I.R. Harris has a great new series called the "Legion" Series, and it is an adult fantasy series - that includes wolves and other creatures.  (Check out her website: http://www.irharrisbooks.com/)
 BOOK 1: In the Lies of Men: The Legion Series Book I 
Legion book 1: Lies of Men

SUMMARY: Fired from the job she loves, with no money and no prospects, Aidee returns to her hometown of Thorne Bay, Alaska to find her footing. A quiet fishing village with a history of Inuit Elder magick, Aidee’s little hamlet attracts tourists from around the world who hold a gruesome intrigue for the massacre that occurred in the town. After years of being away, she quickly realizes all too soon that she’s been expected to return and that she’s not the only one still trying to wash the blood of the past from her hands...
Legion Series Book 2
BOOK 2: The Journey Through: The Legion Series 2
The Journey Through…Book II of The Legion Series Marked by devastating betrayals and with violence bearing down upon her soul, Aidee launches herself into exterminating the Ruv, the pack of wolves that slaughtered her family of Inuit Elders. In her absence, a brutal attack on the Legion ensues, forcing Aidee to put her trust in one of the more sinister souls in her life, Eli Hawthorne, Jonah’s father and the one time leader of the Ruv, but Eli isn’t the only potential threat facing the Legion. A mysterious illness attacks Laddie, witches are targeted on various Reservations and uprisings outside of Alaska bring Aidee and the Legion into the political chess match that is Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. In the second installment of the series, the Legion finds itself facing clans, covens and demonic powers far darker than they imagined at a time of great unrest within the mystical energies of the world. Who will rise, who will fall and who will be left standing as the journey of the Legion continues…
