Fair Game: Alpha and Omega

Now that the werewolves have revealed themselves to humans, they can't afford any bad publicity.

Publisher's Summary

Patricia Briggs' Alpha and Omega series - set in a world of shifting shapes, loyalty, and passion - brings werewolves out of the darkness and into a society in which fear and prejudice could make the hunters prey....

They say opposites attract. And in the case of werewolves Anna Latham and Charles Cornick, they mate. The son - and enforcer - of the leader of the North American werewolves, Charles is a dominant alpha, while Anna, an omega, has the rare ability to calm others of her kind.

Now that the werewolves have revealed themselves to humans, they can't afford any bad publicity. Infractions that could have been overlooked in the past must now be punished, and the strain of doing his father's dirty work is taking a toll on Charles.

Nevertheless, Charles and Anna are sent to Boston when the FBI requests the pack's help on a local serial killer case. They quickly realize that not only the last two victims were werewolves - all of them were. Someone is targeting their kind. And now Anna and Charles have put themselves right in the killer's sights....

    "Easy Read!"

    This series is not my favorite from Briggs, but still good. The book and narration are good and I am glad to finally see Anna come into her own.

    Story
    "Love and possessive"
    What did you love best about Fair Game?

    The never-fail love and possessiveness of Anna for Charles, in all his moods is what I love best.


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

    Charles is my favorite, of course, as he valiantly battles his ghosts. Trying to exorcise them without harming his mate.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I am a switchboard operator at a hospital. An audiobook is perfect for me to keep heads-up attention, yet be able to answer the telephone in an instant. I can listen for a full 8 hour shift, if I am not too busy. I don't know if I could finish it in one shift, but it will be there next shift.

    "Wow. If you liked True Blood you'll love this book"
    What made the experience of listening to Fair Game the most enjoyable?

    Well rounded characters, inteligently intriguing plot. I have not read any of the other books in this series but the book really stands on its own.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The nice balance between inner conflict and external action. The smart female characters and the witty dialog.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The meeting where the FBI and werewolfs sit down to brief eachother was electric.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes absolutely.


    Any additional comments?

    Patricia Briggs is now my favorite author. I have yet to read a book from her I didn't thoroughly enjoy. But this one was surprisingly the best yet.

    Story
    "This series just keeps getting better!"
    Where does Fair Game rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I'm an avid audiobook listener and this book is near the top of my favorites list. I have loved this series since I first started "Cry Wolf" and I have devoured everything in the series since. I love the emotional interplay between the characters and how much they are willing to fight to overcome their personal demons in order to support their partner.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Fair Game?

    It's hard to answer this without giving spoilers, so if you don't want to know, don't read. At one point Anna is taken by a group of killers who rape and torture their victims and Charles is helpless to locate her. This capture brings back, to Anna, memories of her life in her first pack and tortures Charles with his failings.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Spoiler! I think the most moving scene was when Charles was finally able to work through his guilt and overcome the spirits that were haunting him in order to re-connect with Anna and go to her rescue.


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

    While I didn't specifically laugh or cry, this story is powerful and emotionally gripping.


    Any additional comments?

    Holter Graham's narration is excellent. He does a great job giving each character a specific voice that helps to define them.

    "Great couple"
    What did you love best about Fair Game?

    Charles and Anna are an engaging couple and you want them to find their way together. Anna has been abused in the past, but she's finding her way as a werewolf and standing up for herself with gentle support from her Charles.


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

    Holter Graham also reads for Dark Hunter series. I really enjoy his performances.He's got the best voice in Audiobook industry in my opinion.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, and I've listened to it more than once.

    Story
    "Love Series...in text"
    Would you try another book from Patricia Briggs and/or Holter Graham?

    Patricia Briggs yes. Holter Graham: not unless the main character was Lenny from Of Mice and Men


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Made sense that something would happen to give the story line an issue to resolve going forward in future books.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Charles sounded like a moron when read by Holter. As I read the books Charles never came across sounding as Holter Graham made him sound like. Holter's portrayal of the fay character who wasn't right in the head was perfect. Unfortunately, his vocalization between characters did not change. Glad I did not run into the series via Audible first. Never would have gotten into it. I am finding that if I am to start a series via Audible I need to have little reading knowledge of it prior to starting. The voice of the characters is always different when reading and I find it difficult to translate into audio unless the chosen reader matches my internal voice.

    "TOO LONG IN COMING!"
    Where does Fair Game rank among all the audiobooks you???ve listened to so far?

    This series is very good, interesting and appealing. Right off the bat I was drawn in by the storyline, anticipating the next book! Anna and Charles's struggles have been easy to relate to and as a werewolf tale is does the genre proud. If I had two wishes it would be for the next books to be released sooner and for the story length to be longer.


    What about Holter Graham???s performance did you like?

    I love Holter Graham as a narrator! His voice is very pleasant to the ear and I have sought out other books he has narrated.


    Any additional comments?

    I find the story of Anna and Charles very engaging and entertaining and I am always looking forward to the next one but??? I find the extreme length of time between books disappointing. Because of this the reader risks loosing their closeness to the characters and storyline.
