BRILLIANT! MASTERFUL! EXTRAORDINARY!

Burn Bright is part of the Mercy Thompson universe and the latest in the Alpha & Omega series. Mercy Thompson is my favorite series, but I do love me some Anna and Charles. The Alpha & Omega series gives use a whole new perspective on the world and the werewolves.

I couldn’t put this one down. I was hooked from begging to end. I felt for those that lost someone they care for, for the betrayal to the pack, and more.

We get to go deep into Aspen Creek and meet the Wildlings. They are old, powerful wolves like Asil who walk on an unsteady line between dangerous and much to close to their wolves then should be safe. They where an interesting bunch to meet. The Marrock still protects them even if they are lone wolves and when danger comes calling, Anna and Charles race to help.

Anna and Charles make a great team and couple. I enjoyed seeing Anna grow into her gift and have more confidence. They end up in a few interesting situation. And, it’s soon clear that someone in the pack is selling out the wolves, but who? I was shocked as to who the betrayer was. I didn’t see it coming.

Bran, the Marrock, has always intrigued me. I love everything about him and his town of misfit werewolves in the middle of no-ware. He’s around, but has closed himself off to the pack and his family.

As for Leah, I have never liked her. I still don’t like her, but I understand her better. Do I sympathize with her? Maybe just a little, but I still don’t care for her. Everything she did to Mercy and Charles throughout the years hasn’t changed. She choose to be spiteful so, even after learning a little more about her. I still don’t like her, but my dislike is not as big as it was.

Burn Bright gives us witchy things, betrayal, lies, and more. Briggs is brilliant with her urban fantasy. I can’t wait to see what’s next.

Audio 2021 Narration: I reread/listen to this book and loved it all over again. The audio is fantastic and so engaging. I found myself drawn in. Highly recommend the audiobooks for Alpha & Omega series.

Rated: 4.5 Stars

OK, the interweaving of series and stories and whatnot? Usually this drives me mad. Briggs, however, is handling it beautifully, and keeping the individual stories strong. Seriously enjoyed this book. ( )

Started a little slow for me but damn did it get busy quick.

So many angles I wasn't sure who the bad guy was....and the one whom Bran feared might be the traitor, OMG!

Had to re-read right away to make sure I hadn't missed anything. ( )

So awesome

I will write anything that Patricia Briggs writes, even tech manuals. I love her world. It doesn't matter if it's Mercy and Adam or Charles and Anna, I need to read the book.

The nice thing about the Alpha and Omega series is that we get to learn more about werewolves than we do with Mercy, I think.

In this one, we get more info on Bran and his pack. It was fascinating to read. I am sad that I read it so fast because now I'm done. Now I have to wait for the next one. ( )

Spoilers for those who have not read previous books in Alpha and Omega and the Mercy Thompson series to this point.

So I thought about this one all night long and realized that I honestly can't give this story in the Alpha & Omega series more than 1 star. The main reasons was the total retcon regarding Bran and Mercy that had me looking at the whole series in a new light (not in a good way), the information dumps galore we get regarding the Wildings, and the fact that we did not get enough one on one moments for me of Anna and Charles together. The main saving grace for me was that we get an interesting new character (Wellesley) that I would love to see in a new spin off series from Alpha and Omega.

After finding out that this is something that may be followed up in future books I am going to pull a pin on reading anymore books set in the Alpha & Omega series anymore. I plan on just sticking to the Mercy Thompson series and pretending this never happened.

"Burn Bright" is another look into the Alpha and Omega universe. This takes place a few days/weeks after the events in "Silence Fallen". Bran is off visiting Samuel in Africa (I seriously went wait what on that one since I thought he was still in Washington state) after rescuing Mercy and coming to Adam's aid in Silence Fallen. Charles has been left behind to deal with things and is bumping heads with his stepmother Leah. When one of the Wildings (werewolves who are too dangerous to run among others who Bran protects) calls warning of danger, Charles and Anna are dispatched to figure out what is going on.

Charles and Anna quickly realize that it looks like someone is out to take out the Wildings and potentially the other werewolves. Previous characters from the series come out of the woodwork (Asil, Sage, Leah, Tag) and or mentioned (Mercy, Mercy's foster parents, old enemies) and there are callbacks galore in this one. I would honestly not recommend reading this if you haven't read the rest of the series. Most of the book was mentioning things that we have heard about before.

Charles and Anna who up until now were two of my favorite characters in the Mercyverse. I don't know. This book definitely takes a hit at all of our favorites. I think the only ones that ended up not being terrible were Mercy and Adam (they are mentioned and not part of the action in this one). Let me take that back, Asil and I are still good.

I honestly don't know what Briggs was thinking with the out of the way information that is thrown at readers at the beginning of this book. It ends up making the story topsy-turvy to me. And I ended up thinking way less of Bran.

I think the main problem is that we spend a little too much time seeing Charles POV and most of Anna's POV is too rushed. We have her at times dealing with PTSD after realizing she recognizes a dead man who attacked/raped her back when she was in Chicago. Then she is dealing with trying to use her Omega powers on a werewolf that comes with another revelation and it felt like we didn't get a chance to catch our breaths in this one.

Secondary characters I thought were given too much time in this one. We get a POV with Leah, Bran, and Sage. One thing that works the best for me in the Mercy Thompson series is that we usually always get first person POV from Mercy. It works better. We are able to get into Mercy's head a lot easier and for me.

I think having third person POV from not only Charles and Anna and the side characters it just slowed things down a lot. I do say though that it was weird to get Leah's POV since she's always been cast as terrible and I think it's weird Briggs is pushing that Leah has somehow been done wrong by Bran.

The writing is typical Briggs, but the flow was up and down. The information dumps we get along the way slow things down and I felt like every little thing was getting overly explained at times. I will say though that this is a fast read. I am just now wishing I had waited for this via the library or gotten it in paperback since I don't see me re-reading this like I do most of the other Alpha and Omega books.

The world building in the Mercyverse and Alpha and Omega is done very well though. Briggs takes thing into an exciting new direction in this one which is the main reason why this is just getting one star. It leaves a lot of implications for the future of the werewolves and other Packs and it will be interesting to see if there is any follow through in the Mercy Thompson series. I would call most of this book filler though. This was clearly meant to pivot the series forward and all of the past callbacks to things definitely has this book meant to be a bridge between both the Alpha and Omega series and Mercy Thompson.

The ending works, but honestly I wanted more discussions taking place. There is a major reveal about a character that we have known for a long time and it felt like it was not talked about enough (at least to me).

ETA: I'm now concerned I was too generous with my rating. Looking back at the other books the plot twist reveal really does wreck what we have come to know.

ETA: after a response from Briggs via her assistant to another reviewer I'm going to back away from Alpha and Omega series. I will keep reading Mercy Thompson though.

Discussion of issue of why I am only giving this one star below:
It was gross to read that Bran apparently had feelings or still has feelings apparently based on what Anna says for Mercy. Yes, Mercy. The same Mercy that Bran raised since she was 3 months old. The same Bran that sent Mercy away when she was 16 since she got involved with Bran's son Samuel. The same Mercy that he didn't even speak to for at least a decade until the first book in the Mercy Thompson series.

I hated that Anna based on the discussion she had with Charles is also blaming Mercy for this and or for not realizing it. And then we get into the fact that this is why Leah always hated Mercy. So you are telling me that no one said to themselves that a man who had a hand in raising her should have been smacked down about this. And apparently this was an open secret in the Aspen Creek community though no one spoke about it.

I just...my head hurts. This colors the entire series and now makes me feel squeamish about "Silence Fallen." We had Bran making amends it felt like for abandoning Mercy twice and she was happy that her father came and got her. Now we find out that he's in love with her and Briggs does her best to make you feel sorry for Leah somewhere in there though she abused and we are told countless times would have killed Mercy if she could have.

Burn Bright by Patricia Briggs
Fantasy -March 6th, 2018
4 ½ stars

In the latest installment of Patricia Briggs’s Alpha and Omega series. Charles and Anna must deal with dangerously unstable werewolves and treachery.

Charles and Anna are werewolves and mates. Charles is his father’s enforcer. His father is the Marrok, a very old and very powerful werewolf. But his father has mysteriously disappeared and Charles finds himself dealing with the Marrok’s ‘special’ members. These packmates live separated from the rest of the pack because they are unsafe to be around regular members. But when one of them comes to Charles for help he can’t turn him away. Soon Charles finds himself trying to discover who is targeting the isolated pack. Especially because it seems the attacks are coming from someone with special ops capabilities and lots of money. As they try to visit all of the pack members they discover that there may be someone within their pack betraying them. Can Charles and Anna discover the traitor and save the rest of the pack before it is too late?

Charles and Anna make an incomparable team. I like that Anna and the reader get to see glimpses of the real Charles - who is the boogie man of the werewolf world. In each of the the Alpha and Omega books Charles and Anna are sent by the Marrock on missions but this time they are on their own. This leads the reader to wonder what has happened to the Marrock and the tantalizing idea of how Charles might lead the pack. Reading about the more extraordinary members of the pack made me want to know about them and which leads to the possibility of future unexplored books. This story seemed shorter and more unfinished than prior books in the series. Perhaps this is because the author leaves a lot areas left hanging. I enjoyed reading it but felt that there could have been three to four more chapters added at the end. This story felt like a solid side story instead of a full novel.

Another winning paranormal from Patricia Briggs I only wish it were longer!

Prologue

Once upon a time there was a small spring that, touched by the earth's spirit, bore a sparkle of magic scattered in its cold, pure water.

But if the death of another wilding would hurt her mate, the death of his son would do far worse. And though she knew Bran did not love her, knew that love had no part in their long-ago bargain, it didn't matter. She loved her coldhearted, flawed bastard of a husband and mate with all of her selfish heart. If she could save Charles, she would.

And wouldn't Charles just hate that. She smiled widely as she ran, sweeping up Asil and Juste in her wake with a gesture of her hand. (chapter 11)
