I came to this after reading a rather laborious free thriller. It was a joy to be picked up and carried along by a fast paced, well written, well characterised story. I won't describe the plot, others have done that better than I could, but will say that it's a cracking good read and I can't wait for the next one to come out.
This book was a four and a half star read. There were things I really enjoyed about it.
I read the short story in ON THE PROWL with the H and h in it and decided to find out more about their story as I liked both of the characters. This story didn't disappoint.
I stayed up late to read this, so my review probably won't make much sense, lol, but the author has a great writing style and the reason why I docked half a star is because I never saw Charles actually be the violent wolf he could be. When finding Anna, he didn't go all berserk, he was pretty calm.
Patricia Briggs has been on my autobuy list for a long time, and this book is no exception. I literally could not put it down, and read it from start to finish in one sitting, despite having loads of other stuff to be doing. The character development and relationship insights are, as always, top-notch, but this book also adds some strong new "good guys" and not so good (Hally!) characters, all around a decent plot, and a gripping finale. As other reviewers have commented, the only downside of how the book ended is the wait to find out what happens next.
I usually set myself a time to stop reading at night so I can sleep. With this book it was a case of just another hour, then okay another half an hour won't hurt. Then what's fifteen minutes going to hurt. Of course by the time I realised I had missed the limit I couldn't stop until the end of the chapter which just so happened to be the end of the book. I'm sure my memory is far more hazy when reading than at any other time. Oh well. The point however is that I thoroughly enjoyed this book and I am off to read the next.
After a disappointment from her last Mercy Thompson book I was a bit cautious about this 3rd alpha and omega book. But have no fear, it's a much better book with interesting developments both in Anna and Charles' relationship and in the wider world. There is of course the inevitable problem with the mate bond and the dramatic 'Anna is in danger moment' but Patricia Briggs keeps it believable and interesting. Here's hoping the next one is just as good.
Until now I would definitely have put Brigg's wolf novels in second place to her Mercedes series.This book changes that. Here we have a whole array of convincing supernatural characters, as well as developments with Charles and Anna. On top of that, events at the end of the novel promise an enormous shake up in Briggs-world. This was great - and I'm already hungry for the next.
As usual Patricia delivers a fantastic story that you wont want to put down. Sometimes reading a book from a different searies by an author you like can be a bit daunting as the other series may not live up to your expectations but this is not the case here! a fantastic book that if you like the Mercy Thompson Series you should definantly give it a go :) !!!
Interesting to see some new human characters in the series. Expect to meet them again:-)
The relationship between Anna and Charles has been further developed and Anna becoming more confident is especially pleasing. The increasing involvement of far is also welcome. This series is going from strength to strength. Thoroughly recommend this book!
