About Fair Game, an Alpha and Omega Novel
They say opposites attract. And in the case of werewolves Anna Latham and Charles Cornick, they mate. The son-and enforcer-of the leader of the North American werewolves, Charles is a dominant alpha. While Anna, an omega, has the rare ability to calm others of her kind.
Now that the werewolves have revealed themselves to humans, they can't afford any bad publicity. Infractions that could have been overlooked in the past must now be punished, and the strain of doing his father's dirty work is taking a toll on Charles.
Nevertheless, Charles and Anna are sent to Boston, when the FBI requests the pack's help on a local serial killer case. They quickly realize that not only the last two victims were werewolves-all of them were. Someone is targeting their kind. And now Anna and Charles have put themselves right in the killer's sights...
My Rating: 5 Stars *****
I first discovered Patricia Brigg's werewolf world in Moon Called, book one in the Mercy Thompson series. I fell in love with the smart, strong, and often funny female lead. In the Alpha and Omega series, Patricia introduces Anna, an Omega wolf. I love the idea of the Omega - a wolf that can stand on its own against an Alpha, but also does not cause the tension that two Alphas struggle with. Anna is a very likeable leading lady. She has a troubled past, but she has overcome it to become both confident and strong. She is a perfect match for her mate, Charles, and she proves it by standing up to her pack to show that Charles is hurt and needs help. She asks when he can't.
This particular story involves a serial killer case where what was believed to be human kills is discovered to be supernatural. Anna and Charles join federal officials to solve the case. The story is interesting and well paced. I also love the relationship between Charles and Anna. This was another great book in the Alpha and Omega series. For anyone who reads both Mercy Thompson and Alpha and Omega, the events in this book take place after Rivermarked (Mercy Thompson #6), but before Frost Burned (Mercy Thompson #7). You can read the Alpha and Omega series on its own, or read them together as I do. There is just enough character crossover to support the world building and satisfy your craving to know what's going on with the other characters. Happy reading!
Reading is Power
Before I was an author, I was an avid reader. I absolutely adore books and getting lost in the worlds that other people create. I love to discuss books, too. Feel free to leave comments. :-)
