Great series. I love Anna and Charles and the Mercy Thompson/ Alpha & Omega worlds. Honestly anything that Patricia Briggs writes I will buy, she is an excellent writer.
Holter Graham is my favorite narrator based on his work on this series. This novella first appeared in "On the prowl" and honestly was the only part of that novel that was worth reading. I was glad when she chose to sell this story individually. Although it is not necessary for you to read Mercy Thompson or this novella before reading Cry Wolf, it does help in understanding the overall plot.
Not very long so I would just buy and save your credit, but definitely worth a purchase.
Patricia Briggs is a great writer i didn't like this narrator at all he sounded like a drone
Yes, this wasn't my favourite book of the series but it was deferentially worth a listen
I didn't like Holter Graham's rendition of the male lead
this book is already part of a series
The story of Charles and Anna is romantic and full of adventure. Please, please, please Amazon make all these books available to Australian listeners!
Parts of it sound ....abit rapey from Charles? I'm completely in love with the alpha and omega books other than this one, but this almost reads like good quality fan-fiction. It's alittle rough.
After listening to a LOT of audiobooks one becomes very aware of the difference that good narration makes in enjoying a good "read." Holster Graham is one of the BEST (right up there with James Marsten reading the Dresden File books and Davina Porter) it is mainly BeCause of Holter Graham's narration that I began listening to the Alpha and Omega series and I'm very glad that I did - good storyline - wonderful characters - and Great narration so that those subtle touches of humor are delivered with the dry wit with which it was intended - and normal sentence structure is smoothly read without mutilating the story delivery. Thank you Patricia Briggs AND Holter Graham!
Married, middle-age, owner of 3 dogs, 2 cats, and a messy house.
Boy meets girl. Girl knocks boy completely off his feet. They save each other's lives. Oh, by the way, they are werewolves.
There is just something about these two. They get into my head and I wish they were real. I'm so glad this beginning got told. Reading this first gives nothing away, and reading it later just helps explain a few things. Well done, and the narrator is awesome as always. I think I've listened 4 times now? It's just good.
Yes. It's a novella, so it's short and easy to get through if I just need/want a fast read. I've reread the novella a number of times, so I anticipate listening to it again...once I get through all the books in my library that I still haven't listened to yet.
This story is obviously comparable to the rest of the books in the Alpha and Omega series. People who like this would probably enjoy the related Mercy Thompson books by the same author.
I love the ending (fight and aftermath). And the rolling pin (read to find out what that means).
I really like how Charles lets Anna know that he's a dominant wolf, but don't push her too hard/fast and respects how her past has shaped her.
This narrator (Holter Graham) is probably on his way to becoming one of my favorites, and I can't wait (though I will anyway) for another credit to get another book that he's read in this series. *I will note that when the author's short story compilation "Shifting Shadows" was released on audio, a different male narrator (Alexander Cendese) read this story for that. Holter Graham's version is much better, in my opinion, and I'm not sure why they felt the need to change narrators and re-record the book when they already had a published audio version available.
I am glad I got Cry Wolf first because this story felt rushed. While it explained some things that were referred to in Cry Wolf, I can understand why some who had gotten Alpha and Omega would want more of the story told. It just feels rushed and incomplete particularly in the final chapter.
I am happy to have this prequel mind, but I wish more care was taken in the reveal. I like the consistency of the narrator. Holter Graham brings just the touch to this book and Cry Wolf. Well done that they've kept him. I hope that continues throughout the series.
