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....

    Story
    "Patricia Briggs just keeps getting better!"

    She keeps building on her world, she laid this amazing foundation, like a beautiful yet frightening floor mozaic. Then she adds the walls with murals and supporting columns, the painted ceiling. Eventually you are surrounded by a cathedral of the fanciful and the grotesque, brilliant! Now a side note: I have only this title in the series in my audible library as I had already acquired the first two in the series from another source before I discovered Audible. I have also found the Mercy Thompson books available in audio from my local library. If you know someone in publishing, please! Someone really needs to record in audio the prequel novella Alpha and Omega from the anthology On the Prowl. The story of Cry Wolf feels very incomplete without it, I found an amateur recording of it(free no less) on the exchange table at my local library. Yes someone finally did that much for the visually impaired readers/fans of PB. We who are sighted do enjoy audiobooks but for the blind this is the only way unless it is available in brail or they have someone to read to them. Will someone on the print/audio publishing end please have the prequel novella recorded and published soon?

    Story
    "Wonderful continuation of the series"
    Where does Fair Game rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Certainly this audiobooks ranks about the top 15 of all the audiobooks I've listened to so far.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I simply love Anna - I think she's a great heroine, growing in emotional strength, being a person one can easily relate to, being a wonderful partner for her husband. Although Charles follows her closely in the "liking"-scale. I appreciate especially that he is not one of this super-human, emotionally closed-off alpha heroes that kill practically without remorse or repercussions just because it is "necessary". He has his own issues with the course of the story and makes his own mistakes, but never takes it out on the heroine or someone else.


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

    Charles


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

    there were parts that made me teary-eyed, but there are also some good laughs


    Any additional comments?

    I had a few problems with understanding some characters, especially Charles, but I'm not a native speaker. In the end, I just read some passages again and then resumed listening.

    "LOVE IT!!!!"

    From the begining to the end this was a book that i could not but down. I couldn't wait to get to the next story and the next and so on. I am looking forward to the next book. Hopefully it will come out soon. Holter Graham I have to admit that I was sceptical of....well the fact that he was male reading for a female but, he did pull it off...so to speak....I really enjoyed this book so Mr. Graham I look forward to you narrating in the future and Ms. Briggs I am looking forward to your next novel.

    "Great Story, little romance"

    I don't know what i was expecting, after Cry Wolf & Hunting Ground, but this book wasn't it. Charles and Anna seemed at a pretty good place at the end of those books, but they were NOT okay here.

    This book was truly about the story, and not about Charles and Anna. Charles had some issues to deal with and it was affecting his relationship with Anna because Charles chose to deal with his issues alone. Anna was hurt because he was hurt and wouldn't share or wouldn't let her help him. Anna blamed Charles' withdrawal and his pain on his duty as the enforcer of justice. What could they do for Charles' pain?

    Well Bran tried a new approach. Bran sent Anna to be the point to be the Wolf "PR" & help on a Serial Killer case in Boston that included 3 werewolves. Charles was ordered to be her muscle and bodyguard. A serial killer had been killing boys and girls for over 25 years and no one could figure out who. Anna and Charles began helping the law enforcement by profiling the serial killer. This book was dark for most of the story but there was a light at the end of the tunnel. The highlight for me was that this case helped Charles and Anna begin to work together as a team again.

    The story was well written and intricate. I enjoyed the addition of various players such as Leslie, Beauclaire, Issac etc. I wonder where Briggs is taking us next.

    Don't read this story for romance because there is very very little in this book. But if you like a well written Thriller and Suspense story in your UF, then this is the book for you.

    BTW, the narrator was really good. I enjoyed his Charles and Brother Wolf voices.

    Story
    "Briggs' barking up the right tree with Fair Game"
    What made the experience of listening to Fair Game the most enjoyable?

    Briggs clearly has a penchant for story telling. Her books deliver a solid complex story without a lot of filler and fluff. Usually the story is a super natural, science fiction, romantic thriller/mystery with plenty of comic relief. Indexing it must drive librarians buggy! With this for subject matter, Holter Graham brings the story to life. One can find oneself, virtually, tagging alone with the characters and witnessing the scenes as the story unfolds.


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

    For me, the most memorable scene was when the prince of the Gray Lords exacted justice on the courthouse steps. It was a scene of mystical pageantry seldom attempted in written prose.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    see above.


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

    Yes. Fair Game was a story that drew you in and kept you wanting to know what they were going to do on the next page. However, that isn't how I, (we), listen to audiobooks. Each weekday evening, after we both arrive home from our work, and during our evening meal, all TVs and radios are turned off and we listen to a chapter or two of an audiobook, while we eat.

    Story
    "Better than what I expected"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Fair Game to be better than the print version?

    Yes. I've read all the books myself so, as a woman, the narration is always in a female 'voice.' I was at first surprised by the male narration but pleasantly so and then I was impressed that it enhanced the experience for me and was better for it.

    "Good Popcorn Reading"
    Would you listen to Fair Game again? Why?

    It's a great one-time listen. The story is pretty good, the reading is great.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I like Charles. He's a good tough-guy character.


    What about Holter Graham’s performance did you like?

    He really nails the characters, and conveys a lot of emotion and mood with his voice. He's one of the better readers I've followed.

    "I am a fan and this book has kept me hooked"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I am a huge fan of Patricia Briggs books and this did not let me down. I enjoyed it and was hooked on the story. This is definitely another great series to follow.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Charles has always been dark and mysterious.There are so many facets to background that I love to explore. I had a sense of pride in Anna while reading this book. I love seeing her grow stronger.


    What about Holter Graham’s performance did you like?

    I tend to get nervous with male narrators. Sometimes they grate on my nerves. But Holter is an awesome narrator. I was glad to heard the story from him.
