Publisher's Summary

Anna never knew werewolves existed until the night she survived a violent attack...and became one herself. After three years at the bottom of the pack, she'd learned to keep her head down and never, ever trust dominant males. But Anna is that rarest kind of werewolf: an Omega. And one of the most powerful werewolves in the country will recognize her value as a pack member - and as his mate.

    Give me water to swim and surf in. That with a glass of white wine and the sun. That's heaven.

    "KEEP ON COMING ON!"
    If you could sum up Cry Wolf in three words, what would they be?

    Suspense, Action, & Romance


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I was so very glad I decided to try this series. In the past I've been a big Patricia Briggs fan, but Mercy, just left something lacking for me. My favorite character was Charles, because finally after centuries, he finds his mate when his inner-wolf decides on the "Omega", because it shows just how honesty and trust can build up anyone. After he meets her, he makes a promise that he will never lie to her and will always be her protector, even thought he's not used to explaining himself to anyone. With her he's a pussy cat while in enforcer mode, he's the baddest Werewof you don't want to meet.


    What about Holter Graham’s performance did you like?

    Holter Graham Now that is a name I haven't heard before, but it's not one I will forget anytime in the future.He helps build the story by giving each character their individual personalities.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Believe in yourself!

    "I've read all Mercy Tompson so I thought I'd try.."

    So glad I got this. First the Narrator Holter Graham is fantastic. There are some subtle hints of Mercy and Adam which brings the story together. I'm sure as this series goes forward there may even be more interaction. If you are a fan of Patricia Briggs, as I am give this one a go.

    Always looking for characters who will jump off the page into my imagination. Love richly developed worlds and a dark twist of humor.

    "Pulls you in..."

    The story is intriguing, the relationship between the primary characters is engaging and a compelling component of the plot - but NOT the only plot; there's lots of action and suspense here too.

    Good world-building, and interesting secondary characters. Definitely worth a listen. (Or more than one!)

    "Feeling Disappointment"

    This wasn't what I was expecting. I was thinking maybe this was a Wearwolf version of a Jeanne Frost book, but not so much. I was bored by the middle of the book and couldn't finish. Maybe this series just isn't for me,

    "So Glad I Started This Series!"

    This story was fast paced and exciting. I could barely stop listening to it to eat. It turned out to be so much more than the paranormal romance that I was expecting. The romance in this series is heavier than in Mercy Thompson, but it still managed to to weave a good story around the romance while allowing for character growth and exploration--especially exploration of Anna's Omega status. And this Omega thing, while interesting, still feels a little shaky. It's only the first book, though. However, I do feel that Anna as a character is explored in greater detail than Charles in this book. Maybe it's because Anna has so many more issues to get over than Charles who really worries more about how Anna will perceive him since he is the enforcer of the pack and seems a bit vapid at this point because Briggs seems to be holding on to that "Stoic Indian" stereotype. I am pleased with Anna's personal development. I was afraid she was going to turn too much into a special snowflake like Anne Bishop's Meg Corbyn in Written in Red. (I loved that book, but c'mon!) However, Anna became surer in herself. She didn't grow out of all her timid nature, and as an Omega wolf, she'll likely be more on the calm side in this series. She is allowed agency, though. She pushes herself, and when it's too much, she pulls back. I don't expect her to go from abuse victim to snarling badass, but I do appreciate what Briggs did with her. Also, I'm hoping later books will tell us more about some of the other members of this new pack, as it's mentioned throughout the book that Bran's (the Marrok and Charles' dad) pack is made up of werewolves with various issues such as Asil who never got over his mate's death and wants death and Sage whose past is hinted at as being abusive. Bran is the glue that keeps his pack sane, and you just get the feeling that he takes in the strays for their own safety.

    The narration was a bit "meh" for me. It wasn't bad, but I don't feel like enough was done to distinguish voices. Most of the men sounded the same with the exception of Tag, who was described as having a high voice that belied his big size, and Asil, who looked Middle Eastern but, since he'd spent some time in Spain, sounded like Antonio Banderas' Puss in Boots. The women weren't too much better with only Sage really standing out because of her thick Southern drawl (that I found a little laughable as a Southerner myself). I will continue to listen to the books since I didn't dislike the narration. Holter Graham just might be the type of narrator that has to grow on me.

    Being as this is about the pack that Mercy was raised in, I feel like I should be reading this side by side with those books. Part of me does want to take up the task of rereading the first book and continuing that series, as well. I look forward to reading more of Charles and Anna's adventures and watching them grow as a couple.

    "Crying for more..."

    Than what was written. The story was well outlined but I found the book to just skim the surface of many characters. What happened in Anna's previous pack? What happened when she reunited with her family? Who is the person they call Bran? And I had more understanding of Charles in the Mercy Thompson novels than I do here. Looking cautiously at the next book.

    "Excellent!"

    While I'm a devoted Patricia Briggs fan, I didn't enjoy the Alpha and Omega books the same way I do the Mercy Thompson series. At least not until Holter Graham's narration added a depth to Charles I didn't get from reading the book. Something about his voice made me feel Charles's heroism in a way I missed it before. Highly recommended to anyone who likes a fantastic audiobook.

    I'm a grad student with very little time to edit reviews because I'm editing research papers. Forgive the typos. They're made with love.

    "GREAT BOOK! Read 2 others first tho..."

    This book is great - but it's like a face that's had its nose cut off. Technically it stands alone but I highly recommend you read/listen to ALPHA & OMEGA with is about 2.5 hours that get this whole thing started. Really don't know why they are separate other than for marketing purposes. For that, I took a star, but the rest is great as usual.

    You should already read the first Mercy Thompson book - you don't have to but you'll understand a lot more if you read both of these first. This is a spinoff that just happens to stand on its own.

    I absolutely LOVE Holter Graham - the voice he does for Charles is perfect. Anna baffles everyone, me included - omega wolves are mysterious even to the reader and I find I don't mind that so much.

    Briggs writes such a meaty story with a solid plot-line. The characters are well fleshed out, and where Mercy Thompson is a strong main character on her own and doesn't have to choose a man right away, Anna finds herself mated to an alpha werewolf in the Marrock's pack and we get to deal with the paranormal romance we lack int he MT books - and it's all handles very tastefully too boot.

    Anna has been raped repeatedly by her last pack so she's a bit skittish but she's really drawn to Charles so watching their relationship grow is great. And a chance to get to hear more about Bran! (Which is why you should read the other books first so you can squee a bit...)

    READ BOTH SERIES IN THIS ORDER: Moon Called (MT1), Alpha & Omega (novella), Cry Wolf (AO1), Hunting Ground (AO2), next five Mercy Thompson books (MT2-6), Fair Game (AO3), Frost Burned (MT7)
