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.

    "Great Read..."

    I really enjoyed this story and the narrator was great. I look forward to more of this series, especially since its the same narrator.

    Story
    "I love how the worlds cross over into Mercy’s"
    Any additional comments?

    If you have read the Mercy Thompson series, you will see characters you have met previously in Cry Wolf, and hear references to Mercy and Sam. I loved this. Charles Cornick takes Anna back to his pack where Bran, The Marrok and his father is the Alpha. We learn Asil the Moor’s background and the reasons he wants to be put down. Spending time with the Moor was fascinating.

    The Characters: Anna has been a wolf for three years, but her background was abusive and she does not understand who she is or how a pack truly works. At first, you think she is weak, but Briggs’ allows us to see her grow and her strength emerges. Charles Cornick is the packs assassin. He seems standoffish, and does not necessarily have a way with words. Charles and his wolf, whom he refers to as Brother Wolf have chosen Anna as their mate. He is strong, noble and protective without being overly aggressive, which I found incredibly sexy. Asil has always been a character I found interesting and the banter between him and Charles had me giggling. Men and their posturing oh I loved it. We see many sides of Bran, including his darker hidden aspects. Interaction with the pack showed us many different personalities and I look forward to reading more.

    The Plot: Briggs knows how to deliver action and she had me listening none stop. There is a lone wolf killing in the mountainous woods not far from the pack. Bran believes it may be another pack concerned about his threats of going public. He sends Charles to handle it and Anna accompanies him. The ground is covered in snow and they meet far more than a lone wolf. Soon Asil and Bran are involved. We see power struggles and the battles are intense. Many things are faced on the side of the mountain some are good, bad and heartbreaking.

    Romance: The romance is sweet, and not without complications but we see growth and bonding. I so enjoyed this aspect and it endeared me to the main character. The bonding o

    being dyslexic, I never read allot but I loved books...doesn't mix right? NOPE...wrong...Audible allows me to "read" at a pace that works for me and they have a great selection of books to keep me interested. I'm a fiction , sci-fi, and adventure books with strong female characters reader. I have been on a Vampire kick lately so female protags have been on my list.

    Story
    "Briggs + Graham = Excellence"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Patricia Briggs writes a great story and Holter Graham just adds to it. The inflection, the expression brings her stories alive.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    There isn't just one. Both Anna and Charles. His patience and strength. Her own strength and spunk that she finds.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    It's difficult to say a 'favorite scene' I found the story an emotional roller coaster. I find tears in my eyes and then I'd bark with laughter minutes later. Okay my favorite scene was when Anna reminded herself she didn't have to obey the witch and decked her.


    Any additional comments?

    As I said Briggs + Graham = Excellence. A great story can be lost with the wrong narrator. I think Holter Graham could make listening to the alphabet interesting. And I was reading Patricia Briggs books back when my eyes let me read. I'm looking forward to more.

    Story
    "excellent supernatural romantic adventure"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Cry Wolf to be better than the print version?

    yes.....Holter Graham is a marvellously talented reader who captures the variety of characters brilliantly.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Cry Wolf?

    there were so many; Interactions between Charles and Anna while they were in the snow hunting the rogue wolf incorporated the adventure and sexual tension.


    Which character – as performed by Holter Graham – was your favorite?

    he does so many of them well and they are so clearly defined but I loved Aziel the moor and Charles is so magical.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It captivated my imagination and I didn't want it to end.


    Any additional comments?

    it's my favorite of the three in the series and I love Charles and Anna even more than mercy and Adam I hope Patricia gives us many more.

    Story
    "Unsure About the Narrator. . ."
    Any additional comments?

    I liked the book overall and I did feel like the story, while still in the Mercy Thompson world was good enough to warrant its own series. I didn't real the prequel to this book so for a while I was very confused as to what was going on. I think that it would have been better if I had read that first, or if the set up hadn't depended so heavily on the information given in the prequel. Once it started rolling and I caught up it was a good read. I was really unsure about the narrator choice however. I read A LOT of urban fantasy novels and I am used to a female narrator in this type of series. I think in the end that a male narrator was a good choice, but something that he did bothered me. His representation of Charles kept nagging at me as somehow wrong until I finally realized what the problem was. I found it to be a little racist. Charles is half native american, and the narrator's choice is to give him a very stereotypical Native america way of speaking that was a bit much for me. It didn't detract from the enjoyment of the story for me really, but it was always in the back of my mind. Though the same narrator does all three books that have come out, he doesn't do this stereotypical speech pattern in the second book, but then picks it up again in the third book. I recommend the book especially if you have read the Mercy series, but it would have been more enjoyable for me if the narrator had taken a different take on the character.

    "Not the best"

    This is the start to a new series by Patricia Briggs. In this you see how Charles meets his mate Anna. Anna is an Omega she has no idea what that is or why that makes her special. Nor does Charles.

    You see how Charles struggles with trying to do the right thing by letting Anna be happy and his own violent nature in wanting her. Even though through tout the book they talk about Anna being an omega you never really find out what that means or why it is so important.

    I really like the booked, but I can't say that I'm going to continued with the series.I'm usually a big fan of Patricia Briggs but in this book "Cry Wolf" it just left me want me want more and not getting any. I did think that the story line was good and that it is a good premiss for a series but just not for me. Maybe in the future I'll change my mind and finish of the series.

    I will say this, when it comes to plot twists no one knows how to twist like Patricia. Once you think you have everything figured out she goes and changes it on you.

    "Don't let the cheesy cover art put you off!"
    What did you love best about Cry Wolf?

    It was like a mash-up of fantasy action and Jane Austen. Awesome!!!


    Which character – as performed by Holter Graham – was your favorite?

    I actually like how he does Charles. I think it sounds legit. Now Bran on the other hand. I thought he was supposed to have a Welsh lilt? Methinks Holter needs to hear John Lee do Welsh to get the knack of it.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Forget the tag line. Based on the cover work for this novel, clearly visuals need the most work!


    Any additional comments?

    I was really surprised how much I enjoyed it. I'm trying to stick to a budget right now, so although I reeeeeeeeallly want to download the second installment in the series RIGHT NOW, I enjoyed this story enough that I'm going to re-listen to it again before I download the next book. Always a good sign when you want to re-read right away!
