    375 stars This 70 page novella about a werewolf clan gone bad and particularly its impact on one innocent woman is a solid start to Patricia Briggs' Alpha and Omega urban fantasy series which interlocks closely with her MERCY THOMPSON series In fact if you're going to read this series you really should start here rather than with Cry Wolf which picks up right where this novella breaks off Anna is a seemingly submissive sexually and physically abused werewolf in an appalling mess of a werewolf pack in Chicago which has secretly been breaking all of the strictest rules of werewolf society and co existing peacefully with humans After months of abuse one day Anna finally drums up her courage and telephones the Marrok leader of all the packs in North America not to complain about her own troubles but to report someone's disappearance and murder at the hands of her pack leaders The Marrok immediately sends his son Charles his half Native American son and his enforcerhit man to meet her and clean things up Sparks fly Bodies fly EVERYTHING hits the fan Alpha and Omega isn't terrifically deep but it was interesting and enjoyable reading if you like urban fantasies and this series has some excellent books Plus it's necessary reading for Mercy Thompson fansTrigger warning for lots of discussion of past rapes and abuse of the heroine It might help knowing view spoilerthat the bad guys get what they deserve hide spoiler

    Reread on Audible in May 2020I will keep it short and sweet I still love this book The narrator Holter Graham does a great job with all the characters I did find the language about Chicago being a violent place full of predators a little grating in light of our ongoing situation Otherwise enjoyed this immensely and I am hoping to listenread the following books againI'm still Team Adam but I do like Charles a lot And of course The Marrok Bran Cornick Anna is a wonderful woman Such a survivor and so courageous even though she doesn't believe herself to be I read this out of the On the Prowl anthology I am so glad that many of my GR friends encouraged me to read this one sooner Charles is an unforgettable character It's hard to put into words how I feel about him If could clearly elucidate all the traits that I like in a hero then it's like Ms Briggs took many of those ualities and created Charles I am crazy about a uiet yet deadly hero That's Charles He's really sigh worthy I know I will have to read this story again so I can define my reaction to himAnna is another one of those characters I like to read about Not every woman of value is kickass all the time and full of sarcastic pithy phrases I think that's an insult to womankind to neglect to tell the story of women who have suffered terribly often due to things beyond their control Are they not worthy because they have been victims in life? Absolutely She's a very observant intelligent and deep person She's a survivor to me I can't help loving her She proved that she will be a formidable mate to CharlesBriggs has really impressed me with her conception of werewolves I am very picky about them and she fires well on all cylinders I wish that female weres could have children and that's the only thing I don't like about her world building But from a physiological standput I conceded it makes sense Although I know that Anna and Charles will never have children together I still think they are going to be a great pair They just click together in a way that makes sense I loved Charles's sense of knowing that she was his mate his possessiveness and protectiveness towards her And he was so resolute about it so carefully calm about it I loved his banked passion for Anna sigh He is seriously an alpha guy but he smashes the perception of alphas as brash brutes full of posturing and throwing their weight around with punches and outrageous and obnoxious shows of strength He exudes power and he is powerful Yes I love Charles I still love Adam but I have room for both of them in my heartI got the feeling that this story wasn't long enough Because I wanted of Charles and Anna and of this world Fortunately I have two books in this series to read Thanks so much to Patricia Briggs for bringing this series to life

    4 stars Um I wish I had read this book before I started the Alpha and Omega series Seriously every edition of book 1 should have this at the beginning so we know what the fuck is going on I got the backstory of these characters after the fact Aside from that this was a really great beginning short story and it shows how Anna and Charles meet I was very interested in the romance and the mystery and I think for a short story it packed a lot of punchI listened to the audio of this book and liked the narrator for the most part but I cringe in general when men try to talk in girl voice and vice versa So that took away a bit for me because the inflections he used for Anna were not how I read her when I read the book instead of listening Now onto re reading the next book via audioLove Patricia Briggs I wish she would publish 5 books a yearFollow me on ♥ Facebook ♥ Blog ♥ Instagram ♥ Twitter ♥

    Re Read February 12 2018 Loved it all over again Already started my re read of Cry WolfAnna a relatively new werewolf is barely getting by since the Change She didn't chose this life and the Pack with Leo as the Alpha and Justin as his second is pretty horrible She calls Bran the Marrok when she sees that a new wolf seen in a cage at the Pack home is thought to be responsible for deaths under investigation She doesn't know if Leo sanctioned the kills but wouldn't be surprised if he did As luck would have it Bran has already sent out his son Charles to investigate problems with Leo's Pack that have come to his attentionCharles is Bran's son but he's the Marrok's lethal enforcer as well He's enraged over Anna's treatment and realizes the situation with Leo's Pack is worse that they thought No worries Charles is supremely dominant powerful and than willing to clean house Charles also realizes The Pack hasn't been level with Anna and she thinks she's just a submissive wolf but in reality Anna's a special and rare type His wolf immediately sits up to take notice and Charles can't fight the attraction and possessiveness he feels for Anna Great intro I'm excited to get into another Patricia Briggs series since I'm all caught up with Mercy Thompson now

    This was my first time reading a book by Patricia Briggs and I absolutely loved it I have been wanting to read her Mercy Thompson series for ages but I came across this short story the other day and thought it would be a good opportunity to find out if I liked her writingWell I have to say that Alpha Omega was an excellent introduction to her work Don’t let yourself be fooled by the fact that this is a novella It is very well structured draws you in from the very first pages and is highly entertaining It bodes very well for the rest of the series The story is deceptively short as the author does a fantastic job of introducing the series’ main characters and the world they live in In less than 60 pages Briggs manages to get the reader acuainted with the werewolves’ world and its rules which is no small feat I love Anna and Charles the series main characters Anna seems deceptively weak at first but I think she has all it takes to become uite the butt kicking heroine After all she’s been through and despite her apparent submissive attitude she is and will be a force to be reckoned with Charles is uite an intriguing character probably one of the most interesting UF characters I have come across in a long time I also like the fact that he is part Native American which I find very refreshing I am officially hooked and can’t wait to read the rest of the series· Book 1 Cry Wolf ★★· Book 2 Hunting Ground ★★

    This was surprisingly fun A must read novella if you want to start this series I already like the characters than those in Mercy Thompson Although the romance was too fast I kind of understand because of the seuel and the fact that this is a short story

    January 2018 Re read Buddy read with SarahJanuary 2017 Re read Buddy read with SarahDecember 2015 re read Buddy read with Sarah I love this series We're doing an entire world series re read in preparation for Fire Touched which comes out in March 2016 I had read a lot of the Mercy Thompson series before I'd ever gathered the courage to start the AO series I'm not sure why exactly I delayed so long but I think I thought that there was no way it could be as good as Mercy Turns out I actually like this series a little bit better Anna and Charles are amazing and I like the wider view of the world that we getAnna's a character that I'm a little surprised I love so much She's been severely abused for the last several years making her fairly meek and incredibly submissive She's easily frightened and in fact is scared most of the time But she's strong Emotionally she's so strong Despite all the horrible things done to her she's not given up yet She's not given in She's been beat down but she's still herself This isn't to say that she doesn't have a lot of healing left to do she does but she refuses to let herself continue to be a victim And that's something I can get behind solidlyCharles again another character that I wasn't sure I was going to like What is wrong with me? I should trust Patricia Briggs Charles was a character that I'd previously only ever seen through the biased lens of Mercy's perception It's not that she doesn't like Charles but that Charles is so reserved it's hard for her to really know him So we didn't really know him Here though we get his point of view as an aside this is a nice change from the Mercy series where we only get Mercy's POV and we get to know him MUCH better I love Charles He's got a subtle sense of humor he's protective honorable kind and powerful He's the Marrok's second which means that he carries out his father's punishments and executions fights to the death that he always wins but he also kind of hates it He hates that he can't really let anyone in except his father and his brother which also explains why Mercy and we previously didn't really know himSeeing his wolf choose so uickly for him and then despite the 'fated mate' aspect Charles taking the time to decide he'd like to court her made me incredibly happy Charles and Anna are exactly what each other needsThis is a very short story It's only the beginning But don't be fooled you have to read this prior to Cry Wolf Otherwise you're going to feel like you've been thrust in the middle of a story because you will be This is really the beginning of the story that picks up immediately in Cry Wolfwhich I need to now go dive into Because I can't get enoughPrevious ReviewI really love this start to the Alpha Omega series It's a uick story told over the space of a couple of days but does a fantastic job of introducing Charles and Anna who are the main protagonists of this entire series which is a spin off of Patricia Briggs' Mercy Thompson seriesI admit that I was leary to start it and didn't dive in until a couple of months before Fair Game was released because I didn't think it could be as good as her Mercy Thompson series I didn't want to be disappointedHappily I wasn't I was so pleasantly surprisedIf you've read the Mercy Thompson series you met Charles briefly in the first book and heard mentions of him in subseuent books He's one of Bran's sons brother to Samuel and the Marrok's enforcerexecutioner He heads out to Chicago to investigate some problems occurring there events in Moon Called lead to this and when he gets there he has a message from his father to meet AnnaAnna had just finally worked up the nerve to call the Marrok after reading of the death of a high school student and the suspected death of another The problem being? She saw the missing child in a holding cell at her Pack house Her Alpha Leo was elated that he'd been brought in and Changed and then nearly as suddenly the boy disappeared againWhen the Marrok asks her to pick up his 'investigator' at the airport she's incredibly nervous Years of abuse at the hands of the dominants in her pack have left her with a severe distrust of them all And Charles is as dominant alpha as it getsI don't want to say too much and risk ruining the story Anna ended up being one of my favorite heroines ever She's so incredibly strong in a much different way than I think we're used to seeing in our UF heroines She's perfect for Charles Someone to loosen him up a bit give him life outside of his position for his father and most importantly give him joy He's also perfect for her By the end of this novella I knew that Charles and Anna could do anything together and couldn't wait to dive into Cry Wolf

    I started a werewolf anthology yesterday and it immediately made me want to read this again I like this story very much although reading this for a third time I have some issues with the initial dynamic between Anna and Charles and if I really approve of the way Briggs has written this But it‘s a small niggle I still like this a lot And maybe this time around I will manage a chronological re read of the MerceyverseTime line for the Mercyverse———— Who’d have thought that turning into a werewolf would turn her into a coward? But now she knew the monsters were realGetting to know Anna and Charles The preuel to the Alpha Omega series And a good one too The insta whatever is not my favourite trope but done well enoughRe read in 2017 Six years since the first time wow how time flies————Read this in 2011 as part of On the ProwlIt's the precursor to the Alpha Omega novels I really liked it although I already knew roughly what to expect from it I guess that is the nice thing about book series You make friends and it's familiar and nice to meet them again

    Originally posted on The Book NymphoI wish I hadn't waited so long to start this series This is one of the best novellas I've read as it accomplishes the goal of effectively introducing the characters and provides an exciting story Anna Latham is a seemingly submissive wolf who has suffered abuse from her pack in Chicago After recognizing a werewolf in the news as one from her pack she bravely contacts The Marrok werewolf king who dispatches his son Charles an Alpha who serves as his enforcer to investigate what's going on in the pack The story was exciting and Charles is absolutely intriguing as the ultimate über Alpha Anna emerges as a much interesting character than she was at the beginning and I'm looking forward to following the development of their relationship I've read the Mercy Thompson series through River Marked and this fills in some gaps I liked Holter Graham's depiction of Charles as well as the rest of his performance I'm committed to listening to the rest of the series
