A rogue werewolf is terrorizing people in the high country of Montana. Bran sends his newly married son, known as his enforcer, out to investigate. This gives the married couple a chance to spend some time together, and allows Anna an opportunity to realize what her Omega powers entail, but little do they know what really awaits them.
This is the second of three released books in the Alpha and Omega series. The fourth book is expected to be out in January 2012. This series takes place in the Mercedes Thompson universe but it revolves around different characters, focusing on Charles, the Marrok’s part Native American werewolf son and his new mate, Anna, who just happens to be an Omega. Patricia Brigg has also written several other series which fall into Paranormal Romance, High Fantasy, and Fantasy. She has written numerous short stories. This series is considered Urban Fantasy or Contemporary Fantasy. The books are told in a first person narrative with Anna’s voice and thoughts.
The story hooked me from the first page. We are introduced to the characters and learn a bit about each of their back stories. Once Charles and Anna are up in the mountains, we realize that a black witch is behind these rogue attacks. The story is captivating and the excitement builds all the way through to an exciting ending.
This is a stand alone story with interesting characters. I already liked the universe and I am wondering what else Anna and Charles are going to get up to, so I am going to read the next book in the series.
