Charles's reputation makes him the prime suspect, and the penalty for the crime is execution. Now Anna and Charles must combine their talents to hunt down the real killer - or Charles will take the fall.

I love character-based fiction; any genre works for me if the characters drive the story! Favs are speculative fiction & smart romance.
Another great story by Patricia Briggs. I had high hopes for this sequel to Cry Wolf, and am not disappointed. The plot twists and turns, and the fascinating relationship between Anna and Charles continues to evolve - never a dull moment!
Another excellent narration by Holter Graham as well - the unique voices and accents of the multiple characters are really brought to life.
Never red print version
Just kept moving and characters from the Mercy Thompson series step up
Holter Graham is awesome and his voices and emotions are fantastic I can't imagine anyone else doing this series.
I ended up doing so, it is just Patricia Briggs at her best. I have read many of her books and they are all great. I don't think I can think of any I didn't enjoy
When I look for books I look for certain authors, Patricia Briggs, Lois McMaster Bujold, Simon Green, Jim Butcher....These authors Always Promise great reading. I have read every book by these authors. Great authors of paranormal, and urban fantasy. There are many more along with Charlaine Harris,Ilona Andrews, JR Rain, JR Ward, Jeanine Frost, Kelly Armstrong, Kim Harrison For adventure and sword play try Joe Abecrombie,Larry Correia,Mike Carey, Just to name a few. All write series that I have found 5 or 6 star. The narrations are always fantastic. Sometimes one of these authors will write a short story or novella to be part of an anthology. That is a good way to find more authors of the same ilk. You won't love every story in an anthology, but there is a good chance you'll enjoy at least 75% and that is well worth the price.
I love urban love stories and books filled with supernatural creatures and this fit the bill on both. The reader was great and the trolls in the story caught my attention and imagination. Highly recommend this second in a series book, a cross over from the Mercy series.
Probably, because there are a lot of details to remember and I end up going through it again to figure these out.
Not sure I want to spoil anything.
He is good at capturing the different accents/dialects, which is always impressive.
Of course! But again, don't want to give any spoilers.
Here's the main reason for writing my review: MISLEADING DESCRIPTION! The plot summary given is not what the book is about! Charles is accused of murder, or rather he stands to be accused of murder without actually being accused of murder, but only during the later half of the book and it is cleared pretty quickly. Furthermore, Charles' father is not the one struck down. I am pretty irritated at the description for confusing me. :P
Give me water to swim and surf in. That with a glass of red and the sun. That's heaven.
i will probably listen to Hunting Ground two or three times boor, just due to the intensity of the characters and the way its written.
The way that "The Omega" is finally coming into her own.
Holter Graham gives each character validity while continuing to make the story believable.
In many places of this book I had to laugh because of the humer in the character actions. I could picture some of their action being so in place on a day to day existance.
The book caught my attention and kept it all the way through. If you liked the Mercy Thompson series you'll love this as well. Patricia Briggs does a great job.
This is Patricia Briggs second story in this series and I am really enjoying learning more about Charles and Anna, Bran and the rest of the wolf pack. I love Charles and Anna. The story is tightly written with a lot of action throughout it. I was pleasantly surprised to find two characters that I had listened to in "Strange Brew" a compilation of short stories. One of the stories was Patricia Briggs's "Seeing Eye" about a blind witch, Moira, and a man, Tom, who is a werewolf and a cop who she is trying to help find his brother who went missing while on a case. It was great to see these Characters again as they play a substantial role in "Hunting Ground" Book 2. Holter Graham did an amazing job once again as the narrator. A good narrator can make or break a aubile book and he makes it.
You might want to read the short story on Moria and Tom before reading Hunting Ground. It's available here on Audible.com as well.
Love this series!
I loves this book just as good as the first one. Patricia Briggs is a great writer. Highly recommend this story and the first book too. And if you like this story you should read her books with mercy thompson serise they are great too. My only little disapointment in this book was the reader did not do the same voice for charles that he used in the first book. Other wise I love his reading of this book he really brings this book alive. Hope you enjoy.
A middle-aged romantic who grew up reading Heinlen, Louis L'Amour and Richard Hooker. Expect and honest opinion, even if it's not PC.
I love Patricia Briggs' writing. Holter Graham is a very nice choice for narrator, with an amazing range of voice.
Well, it is in the top ten. I love the storyline and almost felt sorry for the vampires when they tangled with Charles....don't mess with a man/wolf's mate!
I compare it to Alpha-Omega and to the Mercy Thompson series. The characters are the same in Alpha Omega and are interwoven with the wolves in the Mercy Thompson series. Hard not to put them all in the same category of 'excellent' storylines and character development. Of course, the author is responsible for these important aspects of a book. Patricia Briggs doesn't disappoint.
Yes. I liked Mr. Graham's performance. He has good inflection and you can tell that Charles is a Native American by the way he pronounces the words. Obviously Mr. Graham studied inflections.
Fur Flies When Wolves Mix With Vampires!
I love all Patricia Briggs' books. I'm glad she is a prolific writer. I am not a patient reader and like to read all books in a series.
