I started out liking the books about Kate more but Charles and Anna have really grown on me. These two are just such a perfect match and I love to read how they deal with everything they encounter. Great story I was kept guessing the whole time. I cannot wait for the next Alpha and Omega story. ( )

Nice urban fantasy novel with a slightly different take on werewolf hierarchy. I enjoyed that both Anna and Charles were trying so hard to communicate and not hurt each other, despite that neither were used to communicating their needs and Anna sometimes didn't even know what she wanted (which felt realistic for someone who'd just left an abusive situation). ( )

First off: no, you didn't miss anything. This book really does start a few days after Anna's and Charles' are mated, skipping to the end of what essentially makes up the Alpha and Omega short story. It's a bit of a rough start, especially since so much of Anna's character comes from those events that we never actually see, but I think it works.

That leads into the next interesting part / potential problem with these books. Anna was tortured and raped by her first pack. Even though you never actually directly read the scenes in question, they're an unrelenting part of Anna's characters through not only this book but the entire series. On top of that, the paranormal romance parts (read: sex scenes) of Alpha and Omega are far more direct than they ever were in Mercy Thompson. Putting the two together leads to some rather strange and questionable scenes, in particular between Anna and Charles that, at least in my opinion, feel like they were never dealt with as they should/could have been.

Worldbuilding-wise, this is a really interesting companion to the Mercy Thompson books. Rather than a single point of view character, Cry Wolf has chapters not only from Anna's point of view, but also Charles, Asil, and even Bran. It's really interesting to see some of the backstory of the really old wolves (Bran is apparently more than a thousand years old? Holy crap.). Interesting and terrifying.

On top of that, we get a much deeper look into how werewolves work in this world. The whole idea of the Omega wolves is a bit poorly defined and seems kind of bizarre, but it's dealwithable. On a far more interesting note, there's a good chunk more about witches than we've seen before. They're not particularly unique compared to other urban fantasy, but they're still interesting and nicely fleshed out.

Plotwise, Cry Wolf is an interesting counterpoint to the entire Mercy series. As mentioned, while the Mercy books are almost always from Mercy's point of view, Cry Wolf shifts between several different characters, each with their own biases and voice. While the Mercy series is primarily set in the same urban location, Cry Wolf is set far out in the snowy mountains. It's a dramatically different environment and really limits the number of characters involved. It's an interesting contrast.

Overall, I don't currently like Anna nearly as much as Mercy, but having multiple points of view characters offsets that quite a lot. Plus Charles is far more interesting than either Adam or Samuel. If you like either series though, I think you'll like both. ( )

I knew from having read other books in the series that certain things wouldn't happen. I loved learning more of Asil's history and it makes why he's such a curmudgeon more understandable. I still don't like Leah and probably never will. ( )

Aug. 2017 Audio Listen: I have to say I really loved the Audio for Cry Wolf. The male narrator, Holter Graham, is wonderful to hear. I felt like it was the first time reading Cry Wolf. That is always the best when a book feels like the first time.

~ 4.5 Cry Wolf Stars ~

Cry Wolf is book one of the Alpha & Omega series by [a:Patricia Briggs|40563|Patricia Briggs|https://images.gr-assets.com/authors/1464488194p2/40563.jpg]. I recommend reading the novella [b:Alpha & Omega|5393637|Alpha & Omega (Alpha & Omega, #0.5)|Patricia Briggs|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1368147080s/5393637.jpg|5461162] before reading [b:Cry Wolf|2355575|Cry Wolf (Alpha & Omega, #1)|Patricia Briggs|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1310494063s/2355575.jpg|2362332], so you get a feel for the context and Anna & Charles's, relationship in this story.

I am a big fan of the Mercy Thompson Series by Ms. Briggs. I love her characters and the world she has created. Both Mercy Thompson and Alpha & Omega series over lap each other in their timelines. You meet some of the characters in MT and others in A&O. You don’t have to have read both series to enjoy them. It’s just nice as a fan to get that connection and timeline over lap.

Cry Wolf is a re-read for me.

We have an interesting plot that takes our characters deep into the Montana woods in order to solve the case of a rouge werewolf, but they find much more then just a rouge and things get intense. Life is never easy especially as a werewolf and when you add other supernatural creatures into the mix it gets chaotic. I love how the author describes her wolves. It’s not what we have come to expect.

Anna, was turned not by her choose into a werewolf. She has been used and abused by her pack in Chicago until Charles comes along to ad her. Seeing her character develop and learning what makes her tick was delightful. She is a rarity among werewolves and learning about this and the Omega traits are fascinating. Charles has never had a real love in his life, so he is new to the mating idea. He is also an interesting & unique character, in that he is different from his kind with an ability to spawn clothing and his Brother Wolf. As for Anna and Charles's relationship. The wolves are attracted to one another, but the human side takes it much slower. I liked how these two are taking it slowly and I look forward to seeing how the relationship develops throughout the series.

Cry Wolf was a fabulous start to the Alpha & Omega series. I am looking forward to re-reading this and all the other books by Patricia Briggs. If you have not picked up either series. I highly recommend you do.
