I love how strong Anna is, even though there are parts of her that are broken and weak, her strength is in her genuine caring for those around her and her ability to touch people in a way that others can not. Her relationship with Charles is so interesting and sweet and special. I really enjoyed watching them learn each other and build a strong relationship. Charles is also such an interesting character. He has been given the hard job of basically being his dad's hit man who keeps them all safe by doing what others can't or won't do (like hunting down and killing rogue werewolves who are killing people). Seeing him deal with this role and with Anna is very interesting and left me liking him more than I ever would have thought I would.
This story matches a dominant Alpha wolf whose role is justice and death with an Omega whose role is peace and nurturing. You'd think they wouldn't go, and yet, the combination makes them able to handle situations together that neither one of them would have been able to handle alone. It is a wonderfully written story full of interesting characters and a well developed plot. I thoroughly enjoyed it and look forward to reading more about Charles and Anna in the future.
Side note: There is a short story in the book "On the Prowl" which actually introduces how Charles and Anna met and gives you some extra insight. This book can stand alone without the short story, but I think it is better after you have read On the Prowl.
Anna has left behind her home, her job, and everything she knows to make a home with Charles. Charles is a couple of hundred years old and has never in all that time been bonded to anyone, so this is all new to him as well-but he really wants it. He’s never needed anyone, is his father’s (the pack’s alpha) enforcer/assassin, and is pretty closed off to people. Anna was turned to a werewolf by force and treated horribly by the Chicago pack. Montana is a chance for a new life for her and caring about Charles is the icing on the cake for her. But she is still leery, of course, due to her poor treatment by a pack already. But the Montana pack is completely different, and people are not forced into turning into werewolves, nor are they raped as Anna was, over and over.
A rogue werewolf is killing human’s in the mountains close to the pack’s home. It’s up to Charles to take care of the problem and since Anna is an omega wolf, the alpha sends her along on the hunt. Omega’s are extremely rare and are capable of calming even the most enraged wolf-a handy talent to have when hunting a rogue wolf for sure.That would be enough of a premise for a book already, but add to that an evil witch with an agenda focused on an ancient wolf who is also part of the pack, and the book just gets even more mega exciting and fast paced.
If I had one problem with this read, it would be the amount of the book that takes place in the mountains during a huge winter storm. Yes, it was exciting, and I am sure I am in a minority, but since the pack was new to the reader as well as to Anna, I wanted more interaction with the pack, and the town where the pack lives. Hopefully that will come in the next books. There was also a death that I wish hadn’t happened, and I would have loved seeing more of this person.
So fantastic premise, great, well written characters, equally well imagined world building and a romance that I can’t wait to read more about- all this equals a good read and an equally good time while reading. I can certainly see why Patricia Briggs is considered one of the best paranormal authors writing today. Recommended for adult paranormal/urban fantasy fans.
FYI-You don’t have to read Alpha and Omega, but I highly recommend it in order to understand Anna and Charles’s relationship better.
Cry Wolf is a good book. I enjoyed the characters, the plot, and the writing.
That's not the only issue, the guy who wrote the comic, editing Mrs. Briggs work, is not a talented writer. I understand you have to do some edits, and we require exposition if we've never read the books - but a lot of it is like hitting us over the head.
To be honest it was a struggle to get through these. Don't waste your time, just stick with the original source material. Much better quality. Or try the Mercy comics, while not perfect, they are much better quality.
