It's an excellent read, everytime I pick up one of her books and now I'm going to go into a world of fantasy and adventure that never been to before. her Mercy Thompson mercy world is like no other mythology.
I've been reading Patricia Briggs for years. These are entertaining, enjoyable, and not too cheesy which I find happens a lot in urban fantasy. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars for all three categories is because I reserve that for books that leave me speechless or questioning my existence, haha.
All I can say is I loved this book! I could not stop reading it, can it be topped I guess I'll see in the next book
After reading the Mercy Thompson novels, I've enjoyed the expansion of her world through the Alpha and Omega stories. This one nicely picks up where Cry Wolf left off, with some good twists and turns along the way. My only complaint is that Holter Graham flips the voices he used for Bran and Charles in the opening chapters. That glitch should have been caught during production. Happily, he switches back as the novel continues, and keeps them straight in all the other books in the series. Other than that one error, Graham is a fantastic reader who manages a wide range of character voices distinct enough that we don't really need the speech tags.
This is my second read/listen of this excellent book and I think I liked it even more. Patricia Briggs is one of the best fantasy writer out there and her most are always great. The Omega series does not disappoint.
Charles and Gran didn't sound as they did in the previous works. This is too bad because I really like this narrator!
I've really like the voices by Holter Graham on the previous books in the series. Just started this one and the voices are wrong. Very annoying.
