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.

Yes and I already have. This is a novella that first appeared in the On the Prowl Anthology. Ms. Briggs placed the story in the existing world of her Mercy Thompson series so we that helped with the world building already in place. I loved Charles with Anna and loved seeing Anna fight to retain her innate strong personality in spite of the abuse from her pack.
Ms. Briggs Mercy Thompson books and the other books in the Alpha & Omega series.
I thought Holter brought a lot to this book. I love that you can distinguish the characters in his narration and the way he can subtlety convey all the emotional milestones in the story.
I feel that this is a must listen before listening to Ms. Brigg's Alpha & Omega which picks up the story exactly where the novella leaves off. Even though the length of this one was short, it was worth the $$.
Patricia Briggs writes an excellent series. I really enjoy both series - Charles and Anna and Mercy Thompson. Wonderful alternate reality where werewolves, fey and vampires exist in today's reality. Alpha and Omega is the short story of Charles and Anna's beginning. Can't wait for the next installment.
I most definitely would Patricia Briggs style and character development grabs you from the get go and having Holter Graham as narrator makes it perfection!
When Charles explains to Anna that his brother wolf had chosen her as his mate.
A MUST READ AND LISTEN!
This is one of my favorite audiobooks.
I love the characters of Charles and Anna. Seeing their relationship develop as they deal with the pack was very enjoyable.
I think my favorite scene was either the one at the Greek restaurant or after they go back to the apartment after the restaurant and Charles is in wolf form to try to heal the bullet wound.
O Day of days when we can read! The reader and the book, either without the other is naught. Ralph Waldo Emerson. I Love to read, a great time for me is curling up with a great book!!!
I was unable to identify with Anna and Charles and was unable to read any of their books although I bought them out of support for PB. ( So fan girl, i know) This book was the turning point for me, I was able to red and enjoy all the alpha and omega books, worth the the price.
For as much as I read and listen you would think by now that I would know how to spell lol. I read at least 5 books a week there are times I have gotten up to 10 in a week.
Holter can bring any story to life in full color! I have yet to come across a narrator that can do a better job. He can make even the worse book good. With him and the way he reads you can actually see what he is saying and feel what they are feeling. Now that is truly a experience not to be missed. Anything he reads is bound to be a hit.
I read this series awhile back, while I started with cry wold I must admit altho I did enjoy it that I was a bit confused because it felt like alot was missing. Had I read this before the first book I would of known what was going on right from the start instead of peicing it together threw out the first book.
