    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’d learned to keep her head down and never, ever trust dominant males. But Anna is that rarest kind of werewolf: an Omega. And one of the most powerful werewolves in the country will recognize her value as a pack member—and as his mate.

    Story

    It's like a werewolf Cinderella story, only with implied rape murder and Native Americans. Not that there is anything wrong with that. In fact I love this series. It's not easy to find a fresh angle for the werewolf theme, but this short story from longtime fantasy writer Patricia Briggs proves that solid storytelling and confident craftsmanship can rejuvenate even the most tired of genres.

    This one is not to be missed! BUY EETTT!

    Everything about Anna's life is a secret. Her father works for the Branch at the helm of its latest project: monitoring and administering treatments to the four genetically altered boys in the lab below their farmhouse. There's Nick, solemn and brooding; Cas, lighthearted and playful; Trev, smart and caring; and Sam...who's stolen Anna's heart. Reserved and always controlled, Sam does everything with purpose. When the Branch decides it's time to take the boys, Sam stages an escape, killing the agents sent to retrieve them.

    Story

    I'm conflicted about writing this review because while I liked the story, the narrator was terrible. I don't really think it was Casey Holloway's fault though, I think she was given some extremely bad direction on how this story should sound because the choppiness seemed extremely deliberate and consistant (beginning to end unfortunately) For the record, who ever thought a monotoned, robotic voice was a good idea, made the wrong call. In fact, I'd even go so far as to say he/she is in the WRONG.LINE.OF.WORK. Making sure the narrator's diction is crisp and precise shouldn't get in the way of the story itself, and it did here. I'm not being harsh or mean, I'm just being truthful. I almost cringe at how the other reviewers are going to react.

    Now, the story itself was great and exactly the kind of audiobook I look for. Action, fight sequences, romance, puzzles -- this book has it all. But, word of warning, you may want to read this one rather than listen to it.
