It does give more insight on the cry wolf book and the charles and anna franchise. You will love and the only complaint you will have is that it is not long enough!
Love audible,"read" & live life. Wish I could review all books..I ❤️ books with a real story line & HEA. Escape reality embrace the journey.
I am so glad I read this as it makes the first book of the series make sense. I was tempted not to purchase due to the price but must say I am glad a I gave in and used a credit! Cry wolf begins where this one ends.
I purchased this novella because I understand that this is a springboard for her new series which is a spinoff of the Mercy Thompson series. This is an open-ended novella about an abused Omega werewolf and the Alpha she meets. It gave me new knowledge of the meaning “Omega” and the taste to read on…
Holter Graham makes Charles come alive for me. I don't think I would enjoy the audio versions of these books half as much if he weren't the narrator. I heard this novella in Shifting Shadows narrated by another person and the inflections and voices, although not bad, gave Charles and Anna less dimension for me.
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.
