Publisher's Summary

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.

    "dissapointed in audible info on this story"

    though this was going to be another story from the alpha and omega stories not an excerpt from one of the books.

    "moves alittle too fast"

    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.

    Story
    "BEST Narration- love the intro to the Alpha/Omega series"

    The weaving of this shorter story is a great introduction to the Alpha and Omega series which P. Briggs makes fascinating. NOT your average shapeshifter series. Ms. Briggs has intricate details woven into the story that keeps your imagination questing for more. Absolute BEST Narrator with Holter Graham. Anyone who likes a story that is fast paced and yet still manages to reveal depth to the characters in any category, should enjoy this. If you've never been "into" werewolf fantasy fiction - but just enjoy a good read in Any Genre as long as it is well done and the story pulls you IN-- should try these as an intro.

    "Perhaps my favorite short story"

    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.

    Story
    "Great intro to an addictive series"
    Would you listen to Alpha and Omega again? Why?

    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.


    What other book might you compare Alpha and Omega to and why?

    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.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I love the ending (fight and aftermath). And the rolling pin (read to find out what that means).


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    Story
    "Oksy, but rushed."

    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.

    "Amazing (as always)"

    Again Holter Graham does an amazing job with the incredible story from Patricia Briggs. I love this series as well as the Mercy Thompson series.

    "Awesome Narrator For An Awesome Story!"
    What did you like best about this story?

    I've loved the Mercy Thompson series for several years now, but I absolutely adored this novella. I can definitely see the potential for this series to become one of my new favorite series! The romance is sweet. I love Anna and Charles already! Most novellas feel incomplete or rushed, but this one was just so satisfying. It's seriously one of the best novellas I've ever read.


    What does Holter Graham bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Holter Graham does a phenomenal job of narrating this novella! His voices for each character and they're spot on with the voices I imagined them having in my head. I would definitely be picking up more Holter Graham narrated audiobooks in the future.
