    I'm not sure how to write this review without excessive gushing Gushing hurts my credibility as a reader Well I think it's clear that I'm not above a little gushing if I love a book But I do try to be objective However sometimes a good book deserves gushing and lots of it Such is the case with Cry Wolf My tastes are somewhat simple when it comes to a book I want to be involved and entertained When I read a book that takes me to that next level of pure emotional enjoyment catching me where I live and feel deeply as a human I wish I could rate it higher than five stars Patricia Briggs is an author that I was not expecting to come into my life and rock my perception of what I consider good urban fantasy Now the standard is much higher She has found a way to make the werewolf tale that much enjoyable to this lover of the genre She writes characters that convince me that there must be werewolves out there and that they aren't all ravening beasts That there is an entire spectrum That they are lonely in need of love always fighting a battle of control against their animal natures or that some have completely given into their animal side That they form bonds of family and love that wrap around them and when those bonds are taken away it has the power to destroy them Conversely the bonds of love and pack can heal a long broken heartThe characters in this story show that spectrum of wolves very well By the end of the story they felt like people I knew Oh and there were some characters that I crossed myself in hopes that I never encountered their likes Mariposa oh how she gave me the shudders Oh and Bran Could I love him now? Even though he has some really scary aspects to his personality? Although that just increased his appeal to me What control this man has How tortured he truly is Ms Briggs do write a separate story for Bran I humbly askCharles and Anna More continued goodies with their nuanced layered relationship It's a symbiotic relationship almost It would seem that Anna is the weak one and Charles is the strong one Not so Anna's presence brings strength and calmness to Charles She saves his life numerous times in this story in fact And Charles gives Anna that reason and that purpose she had not found before She loves him so much it scares her He heals the broken places deep inside of her with his love and devotion And he brings her to a home where she had been lost before I love that not only does this couple come together but Anna comes to form deep important relationships with other wolves in this story who are in need of the peace that she can give them as an Omega wolfThere were scenes that clutched at my emotions and wouldn't let go When Anna sings to Asil and Bran and they fall with their heads in her lap These troubled wolves finding the peace that an evil adversary had denied them It was just wonderful to watchThere are dark and scary moments in this story as Charles Anna and Walter a wolf they encounter face a very malevolent entity from the old wolf Asil's past Oh there was plenty of horror in this story Of the subtle not in your face but very unnerving variety And the power of this person powerful enough to take over a character who is known for his absolute strength and control Shuddering thinking about itYes I'm gushing I waited a few days to write this review trying to get my thoughts in order For me this is urban fantasy at its best Cry Wolf truly is an exemplary werewolf story to me and that's saying a lot from me It's the kind of book that you don't want to put down for anything Ms Briggs with her misleadingly simple way of telling a story will have likely a profound effect on you if you appreciate really good storytelling Watch out if you haven't read her yet In the end I can't speak for other readers I won't even try I can only speak for myself This was a fantastic story I hope that others who read this enjoy it as much as I did

    4 Omega stars I am a huge Patricia Briggs fan Before I started reading a lot of romance and indie reads Urban FantasyPNR was my genre of choice I started reading her Mercy Thompson series in 2006 when I was still in college and I was hooked I’m not sure what took me so long to read this spin off series but I’ve really enjoyed the first book If you’ve read the Mercy books you’ve met Charles He’s the only ‘born’ werewolf brother of Samuel and son of the Marrok Charles is also known as the ‘enforcer’ He’s a bad ass He keeps wolves in line He’s also called his da’s ‘Pet Assassin’ Apparently there is a preuel novella I missed luckily my husband read it and filled me in where Charles goes on a mission and ends up saving Anna More than that their wolves decide to mate This is not a normal way of doing things Usually its the people who mate first then the wolves see if they’re comparable Things are different for Charles and Anna Everything is happening so fast and backwards and it’s confusing for her “It is your right to know that although we’re compatible you can still refuse me”“Can you refuse me?”
“I don’t know I’ve never heard of a biding happening backwards like ours Brother Wolf chose you chose your wolf and left me to follow him But it doesn’t matter I don’t want to refuse you” Anna is a rare breed of wolf She is an Omega This is not the same as submissive She can calm other wolves it keeps a pack in line It’s so useful to have When Charles goes to his next mission to track down a rouge wolf causing trouble Bran aka the Marrok decides it would be best for Anna to come along Maybe she can defuse the situation before the enforcer has to come out While on the hunt they find a newly turned wolf named Walter I adored Walter He doesn’t know much about what’s going on but he wants to help “Welcome to our world Witches werewolves and things that go bump in the night” This is were things start to really get interesting A rouge wolf out in the woods killing is what they signed up for What’s really going on is so much Charles and Anna must work together to fix this with as few casualties as possible And while they’re doing this they’re also working on them Figuring out their relationship as they go “She understood his passion because she felt the same way as if nothing was important than the touch of her skin to his as if she'd die if he left her” I love love love Charles I was such an Adam fan in the other series not caring much for Samuel that I didn’t pay much attention to Charles I love his protectiveness dominance and I love when his wolf takes over Anna was great too She has been through so much and is finally healing I think it’s worth mentioning that you get multiple pov’s in this story Not just Charles and Anna but also Bran Walter and another wolf who plays a large part Asil aka the Moor I think that the writing was great and the narration in the audiobook was fantastic The only reason I’m not giving 5 stars is I just didn’t feel this was focused enough on Charles and Anna their actual relationship etc Also there was one or two rushed sex scenes and I wanted than that I’m hoping as the series continues there is steam and we get of a focus on the main couple Still this was good read for me and I’m looking forward to reading of the series

    What a great new fun fantasy seriesI’m a big fan of Patricia Briggs’ Mercy Thompson series Alpha Omega is another of her werewolf fantasy series that I hadn’t read till now What a pleasure to see many of the same characters in Cry Wolf It’s great to get some background on Charles Cornick and his father the leader of the North American werewolves communityI read a lot of serious books but really enjoy tapping into fantasy on occasion for some good fluff Couldn’t put this book down I will definitely be continuing the seriesThanks to Jonetta for the referral5 out of 5 stars

    When I first started this book it read like a second book in a series but I checked online and it said Book 1 but as I kept reading I knew I was missing something so I looked a bit deeper there is a short story titled Alpha and Omegas that is really the first story of this series It's in the book On the Prowl by a number of authors After I read the short story I returned to the book I liked seeing of the world Patricia Briggs created with her Mercy Thompson series she focuses on Charles the youngest son of the Marrok who is alpha of all the werewolves in the US I would have liked to seen a longer satisfying wrap up at the end view spoilerI would have liked to have read about the wedding and their relationship also I was a bit concerned about reading of Briggs other books because this is the second series character Anna who had been raped Mercy was raped as well hide spoiler

    “Identity was partly heritage partly upbringing but mostly the choices you make in lifeThere’s a few things that making reading life a little glum and one of those things is being excited to read a well loved book by the genre community only to find out that for irritating reasons you have absolutely no idea where the other readers are coming from with their devotionThat’s what happened to me with Cry Wolf the first book in the Alpha Omega series I’ve been reading the Mercy Thompson books for years now and every so often when I review one of the seuels with a less than stellar rating someone will pop up and say – “oh you have to read the OTHER series it’s better” Or “you have to read about Anna and Charles their stories are just as good” I’ve seen the same recommendations in groups as well SoI have finally hopped on board only to fall off againFrom the start this book lost a brownie point and a half when I found the first page was diving into an already existing relationship Ugh bug I know from internet snooping that there is a preuel to this a short story where the two first meet But on principle I’m stomping my foot and saying I don’t want to have to read a short story to fully enjoy and connect with a first book in a series That’s not how my reading life typically works So I still kept digging into the book and ignoring the fact that the mated pair have already met they’ve already established this serious life changing bond off page and we’re starting a book where she’s moving out of her apartment and into his houseI kept thinking there may be recaps later that would make me see how they first met and understand the connection something that would explain the bond and make me actually care about their situation but no It continues as is and I had issues accepting that It didn’t help that I felt no spark from Charles – people seem to love him but I don’t get the charm To me he lacked naughty humor he was serious as a nail and I couldn’t find much personality in there Anna was average as a heroine but didn’t stand out for me either – she seems sweet but nothing that makes me sit up and take notice Together I couldn’t’ observe their sizzle and chemistryWhat I DID like reading about was seeing of Bran the man just draws attention whatever series he graces background story on his bitchy mate Leah and I seriously liked the intro of sweet Warren Those side characters were much interesting The book was finally picking up until the author did a “sad bad thing” to a person I connected withThe storyline was dull for the first half – it became interesting when they set out to find the rogue wolf and do investigations There was tension and well done scenes – the villain was a worthy witchy one I don’t find flaw with the conflict crisis and resolution – but I did find the first half of the book unnecessarily lackluster The last of heart and emotion from the two mains didn’t help thatI doubt I’ll give the series another shot even though some have encouraged at least trying the second book I won’t order it fresh shiny and new but I’ll do an attempt if I run across a used copy Meanwhile I’ll have to continue having fun with Mercy’s characters and seeing Bran from a distance

    Before reading Cry Wolf PLEASE make sure to read the novella Alpha Omega It functions as #05 in this series and is absolutely crucial to the beginning of the series “Tis the gift to be gentle ’tis the gift to be fair’Tis the gift to wake and breathe the morning airTo walk every day in the path that we chooseIs the gift that we pray we will never never lose” After reading a couple of novels a few novellas and a graphic novel by Patricia Briggs Cry Wolf was what sealed the deal for me this author has earned herself a new long time fan because I cannot get enough of the world she's created or these characters She is so incredible at writing characters that I can't help but adore and treasure and want to protect and storylines that keep me on the edge of my seat unable to put the book down until it's done She wondered that hope was so much harder then despair As I mentioned before it's crucial that you start with Alpha Omega which I enjoyed but found myself struggling slightly with at times only because the whole werewolves finding their mates theme can throw me off at times That said any ounce of doubt in me was wiped out pretty uickly in Cry Wolf because I genuinely can't imagine not rooting for Anna and Charles They are so precious together and even though there are some reservations Charles worrying he'll scare Anna off or ask too much of her Anna worrying that she's hindering Charles or unworthy of his love and the occasional misunderstanding watching them slowly come to trust and learn each other is so damn rewarding “I hope this means you'll uit asking me to kill you It gives me indigestion” Of course when they aren't being swoon worthy as hell or going off on an adventure to scare me half to death with rogue werewolves and ancient enemies these books are so freaking funny I don't even know where Patricia Briggs comes up with some of these one liners but they literally made me laugh out loud so many times I love some of the side characters tremendously especially Bran — I've adored him since the moment we met him and I need of his character and they offer so many fun interesting and exciting moments “Sometimes I have the urge to conuer large parts of Europe” All in all Cry Wolf was my favorite installment in the Mercyverse thus far Speaking of I also loved the little nods to Mercy's side of the story and I really recommend reading these series intertwined in the author's order listed below because it's so much fun to get little hints as to what's going on with Mercy Adam and Sam while it's happening I can't wait to pick up the next book in the series and I have high hopes that it's all just going to keep getting better and better from here———MercyVerse — Author's Order MT AO novellas etc novellas in progress GN — Homecoming ★★★☆☆ MT — #1 Moon Called ★★★★☆ AO — #05 Alpha Omega ★★★★☆ AO — #1 Cry Wolf ★★★★★ AO — #2 Hunting Ground MT — #2 Blood Bound MT — #3 Iron Kissed MT — #4 Bone Crossed MT — #5 Silver Borne MT — #6 River Marked AO — #3 Fair Game MT — #7 Frost Burned AO — #4 Dead Heat MT — #8 Night Broken MT — #9 Fire Touched MT — #10 Silence Fallen AO — #5 Burn Bright
