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!
Holter Graham is the perfect narrator for this wonderful story. His voice characterizations are spot-on for every one of the characters in the story. And the fact that the story is great makes this a very entertaining book that I can listen to over and over again. Highly recommended!
I wasn't paying attention to the title and for got this story was included in Shifting Shadows: Stories from the World of Mercy Thompson. It was good to hear this story again. If you start the Alpha & Omega tales it would be good to start here. If you are following the tales of Mercy Thompson and get the Shifting Shadows this is the last tale and should follow up with the Alpha & Omega set and not worry about missing something by not starting here. Or like me get it also and now I want to start the set again.
bookshelves: werewolves, mercyverse, reread
This is the background on Charles and his Anna in a miniseries devoted just to them. Excellent writing and characterization unusual in such a short piece. Loved it!
Holter Graham is excellent as narrator, both because of his natural voice and his performance.
The world of Patricia Briggs is just one step through the veil of magic away from our own reality, and our world seems poorer for it after time spent there; the voice of Holter Graham, however, is a disappointing and periodically distracting conveyance. That said, the story of Charles and Anna, the Alpha and Omega, is far too rich to eschew when an audiobook is the only medium available.
I actually read this novella after the first book on the series. It sets the rhythm for the series : interesting characters, well developed plot and skilfully told action.
