Review: Cry Wolf by Patricia Briggs

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

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!

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.

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!
