Another hit. I love the way Patricia Briggs brings us a little closer to the Marcy Thompson world. We get a chance to meet Charles Cornick and his wife. What a story. Charles is one DUDE I would not want to have mad at me. Great story line and it ties in well with the other series. Great job by the narrator. He really brought the story to life. Though he did mess up a little between the two books. He swapped Charles and Bran's voices in the second book. In the first book Charles sounded more the indian with the slow rough speech and his father sounded much younger. Good books though.
I enjoyed this whole series by Ms.Briggs, starting with Moon Called, and I can only hope she's not done yet! I hated to see the end of the book come, and wait with baited breath for the next story. I hope to see Mercy and Adam figure prominently in future works, along with Anna and Charles. This book has twist and turns, mystery and a little romance thank goodness. Ms. Briggs videos an YouTube are an added bonus.
I didn't expect great literature. I primarily listen to audio books while on the treadmill at the gym or during my commute. Patricia Briggs' werewolf tales are a great way to escape...
The author does a great job of painting pictures in your mind. You can almost feel the bite of snow on your face, or the hot breath of a wolf beside you.
The narrator's portrayals are quite natural.
These are great. The mystical is always a good story when the author does great research but also inputs some their own. If this is your first taste be sure to go back to the first book and learn about these characters. It keeps you totally ingrossed.
I'm an avid reader/listener who enjoys a well written book. I prefer sci-fi/fantasy,mystery/thriller/horror. King,Koontz,Butcher and Child are among my favs. (Scalzi is becoming one ).
In hind sight,I probably would've passed. I had a hard time getting into this story. It wasn't that interesting and Patricia hadn't developed her abilities as a storyteller yet.
Perhaps if it was written later in her career.
He was fine. Not great,not bad.
Preview the book before you buy. Many will love it. I didn't.
I love good books and great narrators. Love urban fantasy, sci fi, romance, mystery, murder, and mayhem with lots of humor and sarcasm.
Great story. A new favorite of mine. But the narration is so abysmal the over-all rating is just one star. Stick to the paper book and save yourself the agony! ...And the money.
I love to read, but I am time-limited. Audible allows me to keep up with all my favorite authors while on the hiking trail. Thanks, Audible!
I hated Cry Wolf, because Anna???s tedious self-doubt was repetitive and way beyond self-reflection into crippling neurosis. I know Anna???s character has been through A LOT, but the author constantly reminds us that she is a survivor. A survivor would not let doubt cripple her. But I really like the way Patricia Briggs???s mind works. So, I gave her Alpha/Omega series one more chance. In Hunting Grounds, Anna???s uncertainties are more in line with what they should be for a person who is strong enough to be a survivor. Hunting Grounds is a tale of murder and intrigue, and the story develops at a nice pace. Ultimately, this story is a fun, short read, and Briggs has redeemed herself from the Cry Wolf debacle. Holter Graham is back and does an adequate job.
