This book was SO good! One thing I love about Patricia Briggs' writing is how fast I'm sucked into the story! And she always makes me feel something for her characters.
I loved Anna and Charles after reading the prequel short story but I love them even more now! Anna has made so much progress from how she was before by the end of this book. And Charles. What can I say about him besides that I love him? He made mistakes and is a little scary but he is so good for Anna. I really love their relationship!
I need to read the next book ASAP! It's been too long since I've binged on books from the world of Mercy Thompson.
Yet again, Holter Graham hit it out of the park with the narration of this book. I loved his character voices and how he was able to make each character's voice unique despite how diverse the cast is in this book! His narration made an amazing book even more awesome! This is an audiobook that I will be able to listen to over and over again.
I am glad I read the short story, Alpha and Omega before this. it made much more sense than jumping in here first.
My only real complaint is that the narrator should have been given the pronunciations of Bram's title based on the Mercy books. I kept correcting it in my head every time he said it.
Looking forward to book two.
Say something about yourself!
I just started this series after reading 5 book of the Mercy Thompson books. Some of the same characters are mentioned in the series but this one is from Charles and focuses on him and how he meets his Omaga. Not Mercy/Adam and his pack.
Gave me some insight on Bran, the marock as well. I had wondered about him in the Mercy books.
Well written with mystery and characters with hardship.
I was a bit disappointed going in to this series knowing a different reader was used. I think Ms. King dose a great job with Mercy however, I must say. There was no need to worry. Mr Graham did a great job. I really enjoyed the change.
Enjoy the read, its great entertainment!
I always enjoy the Mercy Thompson books and this spinoff does not disappoint. Patricia is such an excellent author. Thanks for another great story!
I began with Patricia Briggs with Mercy Thompson and started this series solely BECAUSE of how much I like Mercy. I enjoy this series as well although I find that I have trouble getting used to the narrator. He does a good job, mind you, it is just some of his "voices" (such as Charles) don't fit my mental image of that character. NO reason to not listen though as that is a minor detail in what is a well written series and a good performance.
Holter Graham does an exceptional job of reading this novel by one of my favourite authors. Each characters voice is distinct and I had no trouble telling them apart. His vocal choices for Charles and Anna were amazing. Just how I imagined Charles. He does a great job of the female voices too without them sounding "false". I can't wait to move on to the next novel "Hunting Ground" even though I've read all the novels including the latest "Dead Heat."
Much weaker story then Mercy's series. Hope second one is better. Disappointing
I was still waiting for the story when the book ended
