Review: Cry Wolf by Patricia Briggs
Cry Wolf
Book Info

Released: July 29, 2008
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Series: Alpha & Omega #1
Pages: 294

As much as I love Mercy Thompson and her world, I absolutely love the change to third person! I think it suits Briggs much more and the fact that she has more romance in this series makes it all the more better! I really enjoyed reading from Anna and Charles’ perspective. It gives us a look into a newly developed bond and there are just so many precious moments between the two! The romantic aspects of the story really lured me in. I couldn’t get enough of them when they’re together!Anna is such a sweetheart. Reading about her abusive past makes me understand why she can be so skittish sometimes. But there’s also this quiet strength in her that I really like. Her vulnerabilities don’t weaken her. I see it as something that adds character to an already complex and strong female heroine. I can’t wait to see where she goes from here!

Charles is his father’s pet assassin and although he’s the quiet, lonesome guy, he opens up to Anna a lot. I love the way he looks out of Anna without smothering her. I can definitely see how compatible they are with one another.

But my favourite new character has to be Asil, the Moor. I LOVED THIS GUY! His story is so tragic and heartbreaking! It’s the one thing that really carries this book from a good novel to an amazing novel! My eyes were glued to the page whenever Asil had page time. From his very first appearance in the book, I was hooked! Love, love, LOVE him!

I also enjoyed reading from Walter and Bran’s POV. We see Bran in the MT series but in this series, we get a closer look inside the mind of the Marrok. I would love to read more about his relationship with Leah even though she is such a bitch to everyone. It’s still interesting enough to hold my interest, because Bran is one of my favourite characters!

Being a huge Mercy fan, I have to say that this Alpha & Omega series is really making a good impression so far! I can’t wait to read Hunting Ground next!

  1. I love this series as much as the other Patricia Brigg’s series, Mercy Thompson. I have not read any of the fantasy series…they must be good also as she/they are great writers.

  2. I enjoyed this book for all the reasons you mentioned. After reading the Mercy series, it was nice to get this more insightful look at Bran and his past.

    I look forward to seeing where this Anna and Charles series goes. Enjoying it so far!

  3. I’m curious, I’ve seen the reviews for this series, but are you guys going to review the Mercy Thompson novels these books are based on?

    1. We’ve actually all read the Mercy Thompson books here at UTC, we do have two of our reviews posted here. We might write reviews for the other books as well and post them, just kind of forgot to go back and do it but thanks for the reminder.

      1. Awesome! I was wondering since usually people read those first and then this series, so I was curious. I’d love to see you review them and share them with everyone, I absolutely loved them!
