    "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!

    I have pretty interesting tastes. But mostly I enjoy a book with a strong heroine character that has a touch of romance, a bit of adventure and a happy ending. I also like books about fitness and in particular--yoga. I LOVE Audible!

    "Had to get the rest of the series after listening."
    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Charles -- so organic, chivalrous and strong... with a touch of vulnerability. Every girl's dream.


    Have you listened to any of Holter Graham’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No -- but the narration is wonderful. The contrast in voices Holter Graham makes the story come alive.


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

    Just some silent rooting for the main characters.

    "Does not live up to her Mercy Thompson series"

    This is exactly the opposite of her Mercy Thompson series, which is a really good series.

    This was dull, drab, boring, blah, and meh.

    When it wasn't those things, it was confusing.

    "Great Listen!"
    Where does Cry Wolf rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Great paranormal story. It is definitely a great spinoff to Patricia Briggs' Mercy Thompson series. I enjoyed a story involving Charles with a love interest.


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

    The whole audiobook was good. There wasn't one particular part that stood out amongst the rest.


    Have you listened to any of Holter Graham’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    As with the Dark Hunter series, Holter Graham does a wonderful job as narrator.


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

    "The Emerging Omega"!


    Any additional comments?

    I'm looking forward to listening to the next installment of the Alpha and Omega series, "Hunting Ground".

    "Great Writing - Narration, Not So Much ..."
    Any additional comments?

    After listening to the entire Mercy Thompson series, narrated by the irreplaceable Lorelei King, this narrator leaves much to be desired. He makes Charles sound like a dumb jock, and his pronouncement of "Morrock" got on my last nerve. I don't know whose pronouncement is correct, but I liked Lorelei's much better. I loved the story though. I may just have to read the rest of this series the old fashioned way!

    "A great starter to the new series"
    If you could sum up Cry Wolf in three words, what would they be?

    Adventure Classic Humorous


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

    Several descriptions of internal character monologues along with action sequences and descriptions.


    Have you listened to any of Holter Graham’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, its a great performance as always.


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

    The opening with Anna's past being described really made me feel sad and sorry for the abuse she went through but Charles being there for her uplifted the mood in an instant and set the tone for the rest of the book.

    "Start with novella Alpha and Omega"

    The novella Alpha and Omega was finally released in audio format and added to Audible on 2-12-13. As of now Audible has not added that story to this "Series listing". If you're just now beginning this series I cannot stress enough that you should listen or read the novella first. It was written and published before Cry Wolf and Chapter 1 takes off within hours of Alpha and Omega's ending. Some reviews as well as a few friends comments said they enjoyed the book but spent a lot of time playing catch up or feeling liked they were missing something vital. I got one friend to stop listening to Cry Wolf and read the short story Alpha and Omega first. She said that knowing Anna and Charles's background completely changed her viewpoint and made the book 100 times more cohesive and enjoyable.
    Now to review Cry Wolf. This series is more romantic than Patricia Brigg's Mercy Thompson series but still has all the suspense, action and great plotting that fans of Ms. Briggs have come to expect. Charles and Anna are possibly my favorite "paranormal" couple. The wolf sides have already declared them mated. Now the human halves are left to and navigate through their insecurity with each other and how each person's violent and troubled past affects their reactions within the relationship. It also influences how they handle the events that confront them when they are sent out to find the rogue werewolf that is killing people and threating to expose the werewolves to the rest of the world.
    Even though the Charles and Anna's romance is a major part of this book the few sex scenes in it are more of the PG13 variety. If you want a book with lots of explicit sex this isn't that book. If you're looking for a romantic storyline with lots of suspense and action that just happens to involve werewolves and evil witches spend your credit here. After you've gotten the novella first of course.

    "Excellent Book"
    What did you love best about Cry Wolf?

    Cry Wolf is an excellent story. Patricia Briggs' book is well written and the characters are very well drawn. The audio book was beautifully done to match the book itself. Holter Graham's did a wonderful job of portraying each character so well and I thoroughly enjoyed it.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Charles, of course, cause he's Charles but Anna and Bran were really close seconds.


    Have you listened to any of Holter Graham’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have listened to Holter Graham's Fair Game and Hunting Ground also and I think he did an excellent job in all three.

    "An Overall Surprise!!!"

    I was very surprised by this book. After looking and sampleing a number of books last night I came across this book. I must admit that at first I was sorry that I got it. The book starts out as though the first couple of chapters were skipped and I wasn't sure I would keep listening to it, but I did and am I glad I did. While it does start out very weak, it gets very strong by the end. So much so, that I have already downloaded the next two in the series.

    Ms. Briggs is a new author to me and she has developed a good story line. I like the way she developed the Omega. While I've heard of the Alpha and Beta members of a pack, this is the first time I've heard of an Omega member.

    Holter Graham is a new narrator to me as well. Over all he does a good job of narrating this book, but he does need to work on his female voices.

    If you do decided to get this book, keep in mind that you have to get to part 2 to get to the stronger parts of the story. By the end, I think you will be glad you did.

    "More please."
    If you could sum up Cry Wolf in three words, what would they be?

    Intriguing, romantic, fantasy


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

    hmmm... this is difficult without giving a spoiler and it's not really a 'moment' but The Moor's love took my breath away.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Mostly, yes. I find that I seldom like male narrators doing female voices. This narrator, like many others, in my opinion, gave the main character a simpering voice. While I can see where someone might make that choice, given her state of mind at the beginning of the book; it doesn't seem to change much even when her self esteem asserts.


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

    Two can howl as one.


    Any additional comments?

    Enjoying the series so far. I'm glad that Charles has been fleshed out from his role in the Mercy books.
