Current Reading Mood: Urban Fantasy
Quote of the day: “I’d have been dead a long time ago if not for my friends, one of whom had just jumped off the cliff after me.
I’d have been a lot more appreciative if he hadn’t pushed me first." Cassandra Palmer ― Hunt the Moon by Karen Chance

Cry Wolf (Alpha and Omega #1) by Patricia Briggs

Cry Wolf (Alpha & Omega, #1) Cry Wolf by Patricia Briggs

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
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.

My Thoughts:
Cry Wolf is the first novel in a new series, called Alpha and Omega, by popular fantasy author Patricia Briggs. This series starts with the novella “Alpha and Omega” from the anthology On the Prowl. I'd read the anthology first, I didn't and I was sort of lost at the beginning of Cry Wolf. I immediately went back and read the short story which helped a lot!
The Alpha and Omega series is a spin off from the Mercy Thompson urban fantasy novels and follows the story of Anna Latham, an Omega and her mate Charles Cor­nick, who is an Alpha. Cry Wolf is written in third person mostly from the perspective of Anna. Anna has only been a werewolf for three years. Until that night she was violently attacked by one she had never known they even existed. She was always at the bottom of the pack, used and abused until Charles came into her life. When Charles meet Anna, he instantly knows that she's his mate. It's not as easy for him to get close to Anna with her past of abusive Alpha's, so they have to tread carefully to make Anna feel safe and protected.

In Cry wolf Bran(the Marrok) gets Charles and Anna to inves­ti­gate a were­wolf who has pos­si­bly gone “rogue.” The latest attacks are near the Marrok’s own ter­ri­tory in Aspen Creek. What they both don't know is that it's not just any rogue werewolf, it's a creature bound in magic so black and evil and that's not just hunting humans but the pack itself.
While the over­all story is some­what dark, it is also very roman­tic and fun to read. I couldn't wait to see what happened next with Anna and Charles. It's as addictive as Patricia Brigg's Mercy Thompson series.
