Publisher's Summary

Mated to werewolf Charles Cornick, the son - and enforcer - of the leader of the North American werewolves, Anna Latham now knows how dangerous being a werewolf is, especially when a werewolf opposes Charles and his father is struck down.

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.

If you like Mercy Thompson

Would you consider the audio edition of Hunting Ground to be better than the print version?

Never red print version

What was one of the most memorable moments of Hunting Ground?

Just kept moving and characters from the Mercy Thompson series step up

What does Holter Graham bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Holter Graham is awesome and his voices and emotions are fantastic I can't imagine anyone else doing this series.

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

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

Any additional comments?

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.

Great story/performance, but misleading descriptio

Would you listen to Hunting Ground again? Why?

Probably, because there are a lot of details to remember and I end up going through it again to figure these out.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Hunting Ground?

Not sure I want to spoil anything.

What about Holter Graham’s performance did you like?

He is good at capturing the different accents/dialects, which is always impressive.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Of course! But again, don't want to give any spoilers.

Any additional comments?

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

Freaking Fantastic!

Read from January 05 to 09, 2015

Read/Listened for Fun (Paperbook/Audible)
Overall Rating: 4.50
Story Rating: 4.50
Character Rating: 4.50

Audio Rating: 4.50 (not part of the overall rating)

First Thought when Finished: Hunting Ground by Patricia Briggs kicked arse! I love Anna and Charles but I also fell a little in love with a few of the new side characters introduced. I hope we see some more of them in the future. I am now delving into Book 3 which has a serial killer so it might be my favorite!

Audio Thoughts:

Narrated by: Holter Graham /Length: 8 hrs and 25 mins


Holter Graham is one of my all-time favorite narrators. He brings these books alive and is one of the few male narrators that I think pulls off female voices without making them wimpy.

KEEP THEM COMING!

Would you listen to Hunting Ground again? Why?

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.

What did you like best about this story?

The way that "The Omega" is finally coming into her own.

What does Holter Graham bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Holter Graham gives each character validity while continuing to make the story believable.

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

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.

Very entertaining

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.

Excellent!

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.

Great Story Read(with voices) by a Nice Accent.

Would you consider the audio edition of Hunting Ground to be better than the print version?

Not really. While Mr. Graham has a pleasant voice to listen to, there is something missing.

What did you like best about this story?

Spoilers Sweetie!

Have you listened to any of Holter Graham’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Just the other Alpha and Omega novels that he has done. I would say I have the same answers for all of them. Great story, nifty accent, and much not monotone.

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

All of Patricia Briggs stories I do in one sitting.

Any additional comments?

If you haven't read the Mercy Thompson series, do so. They are set in the same world.

Another Great Story!

Another awesome addition to the Alpha and Omega series!

I know this is an older series; however, I'm slowly getting caught up! After listening to all the Mercy Thompson books, I wanted to catch up on the Alpha and Omega series (two more to go!)

Patricia has created and developed an awesome world full of shifters, vampires, witches, and other supernatural beings. Each story includes our favorite characters and is full of action and suspense. I look forward to listening to the next story!

Love this new Series

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!

Holter Graham is perfect!


action adventure, assassins, antiquity, fiction, healing, invested erotica, magic, murder, not-quite-horror, paranormal, rehabilitation, relationships, self-worth-issues, shifters, Mercyverse

This is a multiple reread of Charles' and Anna's evolving relationship and of the politics prior to the werewolves announcement of their existence to the human world.
Charles is learning to lower the wall he surrounds himself with just as street cops and soldiers must if they are to navigate a love relationship successfully. Anna is learning to overcome past abuses and trust Charles as she has never trusted anyone.
The North American werewolves are readying to announce their presence to the world at large, but there still are dominance issues with the insane alpha of a European pack. Throw in some untrustworthy fae, self-involved nasty vampires, and a lot of treachery, and you have a fascinating read.
The publisher's blurb gives hints, and spoilers are inappropriate.
