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 a great supernatural tale, a Love story, PNR, a Cool Mystery and Most Sci-Fi....if there are vampires, weres or witches in it, that's a plus! Basically I am a 40+ y/o young at heart woman rediscovering the wonderful world of books and am now addicted! Lol I LOVE AUDIBLE!!!!!
How Anna took the lead it was incredible...she rocks!!!
Charles in this one...even thought I love Anna too!
he is just a great narrator....with narration, you either have it tor you dont...and he does!!!
Oh yes...I did a lot of both...this book will tough you and make you giggle like a school girl also...listen and find out!!
I called it jokingly in the beginning who the bad guys was...and by the time we got to that part, I was shocked..it was a wonderful story getting there...this one was more about Charles, then Anna...and I liked that...I like Charles.he is Brave and a very kind man...His love for Anna is so wonderful and I know they are stronger than ever after this adventure!! 2 thumbs up and a highly recommend!!!
Give me water to swim and surf in. That with a glass of white wine and the sun. That's heaven.
The experience of Charles solving the problem to find out who is trying to destroy the adhesiveness of the pack.
Charles who idolizes his wife, his mate, his Anna!
When Anna acted as backup for Charles.
Patricia Briggs is one of my all time favorite authors and this story was exceptional. Adding Holter Graham's narration to it was a delicious coating of frosting on a scrumptious dessert. This is a treat worth savoring!
I wish it addressed some of the feminist implications brought up by this story world's rules.
It was exiting and action packed.
The beginning vignette that was almost a character study of a new character was a great scene!
Yes, Holter Graham is one of the best readers out there.
Come for the urban fantasy, stay for Holter Graham's narration.
The relationship between Charles & Anna was great! I love story lines with alpha men who know how to treat their women.
The narrator really got into the story. I felt like I was there.
The relationship between the characters was really well written.
Read this book before Frost Burned of the Mercy Thompson series. The story crosses over in a big way. This book as the feel of a true mystery and I loved it.
I was cool on this "side" series to the Mercy books at first but I'm a true believer now. I love these characters just as well. Great read.
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!
Yes -- If the friend was looking for some sexy, paranormal fantasy with a strong heroine character that gets to save her own prince charming (kind of returning the favor), then yes, absolutely, I'd recommend this book to a friend!
Any of the others in the Alpha Omega Series by Patricia Briggs.
ONE of my favorite scenes was the spontaneity of the main characters little rough and tumble outside! Woo woo!
The Werewolves are Coming!
I didn't read the print version although I have it on my Kindle. The audio edition is marvelous because of the way the characters come alive. Holter Graham is an excellent narrator and makes Charles jump out at the listener.
I compare it to Hunting Ground because it has the same characters. All of Patricia Briggs' books tie in to her other series or to previous books in the same series. This makes the reader/listener a part of the world in which the characters exist. I love this connection.
Yes. This one is just as good as his other performances. He is a very gifted narrator. I would listen to his other books.
I felt sorry for the giant silver deer. He didn't understand what he was and might have been different if raised by someone other than his crazy uncle.
This series is terrific and I will continue to follow Patricia Briggs. I think that I like the Mercy Thompson series best.
The original world the story takes place in
The evolving dynamic between Charles and anna
When Charles pins the witch down for gloating over the dead boy
Who says fangs and claws can't be sexy?
This series is a great balance between action and romance great listen!
