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....

I love the idea of love.
The new adventures of Charles the price with his Anna.
My favorite character are Charles, Da, even if its a little bit of Sam. I cant forget Asil.
I laught and cry through out the book.
I cant wait for the next one. I would like to read more about Charles and his famaly. After all they have seen lots thought out the centuries.
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.
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.
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.
While this is the 3rd or 4th book in the Alpha Omega series it can be enjoyed as a stand alone book. It takes the series in a new direction. It also makes you anxious for the next installment of the Alpha Omega series. The narrator does nice job of distinguishing the characters vocally.
Yes - best story of the series so far with impacts to Mercy Thompson series.
Holter Graham did an excellent job as always in this series. A favorite narrator.
Really enjoyed this story. I love Anna & Charles and have missed them since Hunting Ground! I loved seeing Anna now with the confidence in being loved and safe and in who she is. I loved the change in the world of the wolves and the fae and can't wait to see what happens in the next Mercy book!
I must admit I really enjoyed the audio edition, I have been a fan of all the Mercy and A&O books so being a listener was a treat for me.
i loved this story from the first page to the last,it was wonderful,so smart the way she draws us in to her stories and keeps us thinking along with our beloved Anna and Charles.
Mr Graham did a wonderful job with this book his voice was right on,loved it..
all of the above,this book makes you laugh and cry,think, wonder and wish.
this book was one of the best stories Ive ever read,I loved it.
Patricia Briggs and Holter Graham are the dynamic duo. First class writing coupled with an outstanding narration. I look forward to the next chapter in Charles and Anna's world.
I love the story of Charles and Anna and their unique connection in this series. The first two had me so inthusiastic for the story but Fair Game was missing something the other two had. A tad dull and not as intense as I was hoping for.
I am still excited about this series and I look forward to reading it all but I hope the next picks it up better than this one did for me.
Patricia Briggs is a terrific writer, I love all her stories and Holter Graham is perfect reader here.
Great handling of the characters made it easy to follow. While I like reading the story, I often get a lot more listening, especially with a good narrator.
This is the best of the Alpha-Omega series so far. It's also a great lead-in for the next Mercy book...what an ending. Just sorry we have to wait a year! :(
Shows dimensions of the characters that are not easily noted in a quick read of the book. When I go back and read the story after listening, while I don't always agree with something, I can see the interpretation Holter has brought to the book.
I read it all in one sitting. However, I listen to it over several sittings so I don't fall asleep and miss something.
Loved this book. Can't wait for the next in the Mercy series.
Love fantasy books, usually with a strong female character. I also enjoyed just about anything from J.D Robb I am a fan of mysteries as well. I also enjoy funny and quirky novels anything from Molly Harper is a winner in my book. Since listening to audio books is important to me while I travel I also follow certain narrators as well.
So I have read every book in this series and in the connecting Mercedes series, and I have to say it's gets better and better. This was not only a great story of Charles and Ana struggle, but also touched on the complications that werewolves would under go if they ever came out to the public. In a startling move at the end by the Fae I was hooked on the next book and its not even written.This book will not disappoint.
I loved Charles and Anna from the very beginning, and this novel does not disappoint. Can't wait for the next few books to show what happens next after the bomb Briggs drops at the end.
