This was a fantastic book! All I can say is GET IT...you won't be disappointed.
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.Read more ›
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.
*To prepare for Fair Game I just finished a reread and I enjoyed it just as much the second time as the first. I love Brigg's writing style and Anna and Charles.*
