ARC Review: Alpha and Omega: Cry Wolf Graphic Novel

Alpha and Omega Graphic Novel
Cry Wolf: Volume I
by Patricia Briggs

When reading a graphic novel you either already know about the series, in which case you have a preconceived idea of what you are expecting of the graphic novel; or this might be your first taste and it will determine whether you will read the books.

I've been a fan of Patricia Briggs for a while now and, although I haven't caught up yet to the current Alpha & Omega novel, I do love their world.  This graphic novel picks up right were Cry Wolf starts.  Charles rescued Anna and he's brought her home.  Anna is still dealing with her past, Charles is still healing from the battle to rescue her and there's some pack issues to deal with.

As far as the story goes, I like to see new stories in the world of the series as opposed to see the book translated to a graphic novel.  However I think they did a great job at telling the story.

The graphics were ok, some pages or scenes better than others and definitely not my favorite graphic novel as far as the illustrations.  Characterizations were pretty dead on to what I saw the characters as though, so I enjoyed seeing them come to life.

I think this book would be a great read for both fans and newbies.

ooh nice review! I love Patricia Briggs! I haven't gotten around to her Alpha & Omega series yet, but I heard its good. I haven't picked up a graphic novel in forever, I'm much more of a printed word kinda girl. Though, some of the graphics are really nice and like you said, its nice to see the characters come to life :)

I love Patricia Briggs and have read all of her books, several times, but I just can't bring myself to pick up the graphic novels - not sure what it is but it's like I'm scared they won't work for me and some how taint the love I have for the books - I guess it's just a quirk...lol...thanks for the honest review about the graphic novel compared to the books:)

I just read the Mooncalled graphic novel and it was interesting to see the story told in that format. While I prefer the full traditional novels, I'm such a fan that I'll have to try this one too.

Thanks!
