In this universe the Fae have already come out to the world at large and The Marrok feels it is time for the werewolves to come out as well. But what would happen if a supernatural group, that may or may not include the European werewolves, did not want the world to know? There would be lots of strife and bloodshed, but can Charles and Anna contain the damage?
This is the second of two released books in the Alpha and Omega series. There is also a novella that introduced this series and was published in On the Prowl. The third book is expected to be out in March 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 book examines Charles and Anna’s relationship and delves into both their characters on a deeper level. I did not enjoy this book as much as the first book. I found the story to be a bit repetitive and it was not as captivating but I still enjoyed reading about Charles and Anna.
Hunting Ground is a standalone book with a much stronger ending than beginning or middle. I have not yet decided whether or not I will read the next book in the series when it is released.
