Book Description

Oct. 2 2012 Alpha And Omega (Book 1)
Includes bonus material and a never-before-published version of issue #1!

Patricia Briggs, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Mercy Thompson novels, “always enchants her readers" (Lynn Viehl). Now her Alpha and Omega series—set in a world of shifting shapes, loyalties, and passions—comes vividly to life in this collection of four comic books based on Cry Wolf, the first book in the series.

Anna never knew werewolves existed, until the night she survived a violent attack…and became one herself. After three years at the bottom of the pack, she’s learned to keep her head down and never, ever trust dominant males. Then Charles Cornick, the enforcer—and son—of the leader of the North American werewolves, came into her life.

Charles insists that not only is Anna his mate, but she is also a rare and valued Omega wolf. And it is Anna’s inner strength and calming presence that will prove invaluable as she and Charles go on the hunt in search of a rogue werewolf—a creature bound in magic so dark that it could threaten all the pack…

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Read! Aug. 28 2008
Format:Mass Market Paperback
If you're going to pick up this book, one suggestion is to read Patricia's Mercy Thompson series first starting with Moon Called and you'll be introduced to the characters first. There is a short story in the Novella, "On The Prowl" featuring Patricia Briggs, Karen Chance, Sunny, etc. and the short story that sets off Cry Wolf is there so you need to read it first so you're not lost like I was when I started Cry Wolf! :-)

This was a fantastic book! All I can say is GET won't be disappointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not a 'Fabled' Attempt at Entertainment Nov. 30 2008
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Charles Cornick has been a werewolf for a very long time and he has never needed anyone or anything other than his family and his pack. His life, until this point, has been about being the enforcer for the Marrok, leader of the North American werewolves. As a powerful alpha he has never had a problem completing any of the jobs the Marrok, who also happens to be his father, has assigned him. At least until Anna.

Anna Latham is one of the rarest of werewolves, an Omega. She is neither dominant nor submissive but rides the line between both, able to soothe both man and beast. She was turned against her will at the order of the Chicago pack Alpha and for three years she endured a version of her own personal hell. When the Marrok began to suspect something was wrong in Chicago he sent Charles to investigate. Charles cleaned up the mess and brought Anna home as his mate, but not without a price.

Back home in Montana, humans are dying by apparent werewolf attacks and the Marrok needs his top enforcer on the case. But Charles is still recovering from injuries received in Chicago and he isn't ready to let his new mate out of his sight. And Anna is still adapting to life in a healthy pack and learning what it means to have a mate and be an Omega. Yet, they are the only ones who can stop the threat to the pack. They must rely on each other, trust each other and discover their new path in life together.

Patricia Briggs's new Alpha and Omega series, set in the same world as her Mercy Thompson series, promises to be an enjoyable and entertaining addition. Cry Wolf is another example of the strong characters and enticing story lines we have come to expect from Ms. Briggs.

The story is an original and fast-paced adventure while simultaneously exploring an exciting romance. The insight into the Cornick family will be a big hit with fans and newcomers alike. Don't miss out on the first book in this new and extraordinary series.

By Darlene TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book picks up from right where the prequel, Alpha and Omega: A Companion Novella to Cry Wolf, leaves off. If you haven't read that one, stop now and go and read it. If you don't you are missing an integral part of the story! As the story begins, Anna has chosen to go with Charles and Bran (the "Marrok") to Montana and join the Aspen Creek pack. The relationship between Charles and Anna develops further, and we are introduced to more members of the pack, in particular: Samuel (Charles' brother), Asil (aka the Moor, one of the oldest werewolves aside from the Marrok, born around 8th century A.D.), Sage Carhardt, Colin Taggart, and Leah (Bran's wife). We also learn of Bran's plan to "out" the werewolves to the public.

In Aspen Creek, werewolves are not a secret: Either someone is one or married to one or knows one, and their existence is common knowledge amongst the residents. There are some government agencies that are also aware of their existence, and wolves are being blackmailed and/or used. Bran feels that the only way to put a stop to this is to stop living in secrecy.

When word gets around that people are being attacked by supposed grizzlies in the Cabinet Wilderness in Northwest Montana, Bran assumes that either a rogue werewolf is out of control or some wolf wants to make trouble for Bran and foil his plans to bring werewolves out to the public. He sends Charles and Anna into the mountains wearing human-scented clothing as a ruse to try to draw out the wolves.

Asil, also known as the Moor, has quite a reputation for being one of the baddest wolves around. He was married to an Omega, who was tortured and killed by a Black Witch named Mariposa. Asil has been hunted by Mariposa for centuries and, when she turns up in Aspen Creek, no one is safe.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good Spinoff! Dec 10 2008
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Having read this book twice now I am really impressed wit Patricia Briggs in creating meaningful, deep and entertaining characters and settings in a spin off novel. I have not seen many writers accomplish this but Briggs has come out swinging with great stand-alone series that is connected to the Mercy Thompson Series but is its own entity entirely. To those who are a fan of this genre this is a must read!

4.0 out of 5 stars Really enjoyable urban fantasy/romance Oct. 8 2008
By H. Deng
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I couldn't put it down. Really loved the characters and I hope there will be more to come. But I would agree, you should pick up the anthology On the Prowl first. She does her best to try to explain things, but having read the short story really helps.

3.0 out of 5 stars Should be 3 1/2 stars... Aug. 7 2008
By ocelott
Format:Mass Market Paperback
If you're going to be picking up Cry Wolf, I highly recommend you beg, borrow, or buy a copy of the On The Prowl anthology to read first. It's not strictly necessary, and the novel will stand without the prequel, but Alpha and Omega will give you a deeper understanding of both Anna and Charles and the relationship between them.

I really like Anna and Charles. They're interesting and complex characters, and their struggle to get to know each other fully knowing they're supposed to be together is fun to read. I actually would have liked to read more of that, to see more of the complications Anna's recent history causes for them. It's touched on, but resolved rather quickly considering how skittish Anna is when they meet. She has an interesting workaround, which gives her extra strength and allows her to deal with things more easily than she usually would, but it comes with a disadvantage that I'm not sure was fully explored.

The action here isn't as fast and furious as in the Mercy series, because the focus here is on Anna, Charles, and the slow trust building between them. It's almost more paranormal romance than urban fantasy, but there's enough mystery and magic here to satisfy the butt-kick quotient. Briggs has an interesting magic system, and it's fun to see a new part of the world she's created.

The story is told in third person, from a variety of perspectives, which really stands out in the urban fantasy subgenre. It works nicely, letting us get to know some of the secondary characters a little better and filling us in on several motivations without having to do a Bond-esque infodump conversation.
