Shuddering thinking about it. Yes, 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. 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.

Don't believe me? Oh, good. Just so you know: I might be a complete masochist when it comes to my reading choices, but I don't love pain SO much that I would inflict this book thing upon my little self willingly.
In a great mood, I might add. You are, as usual, very welcome. Someone should give this pathetic crybaby a lifetime achievement award or something. Well, either that or shoot her in the head to put an end to her misery. Uncharacteristically enough, I think I'd like that option better. Pretty awesome, isn't it? What can I say?
It's a gift! But they don't, so it doesn't. And let me tell you, my Little Barnacles, it hurts like a bitch. I swear, this one is so bad my murderous crustaceans have been coming up with new, inventive ways to slaughter their formerly ruthless little selves.
This is sad. Really sad.
What joy. My eyeballs got a really good workout out of this one. No more cardio for me for a whole month! More free time to read more crap! The end. And stuff. Patricia Briggs.

I started reading her Mercy Thompson series in when I was still in college and I was hooked.
Charles is also known as 4 Omega stars I am a huge Patricia Briggs fan. He keeps wolves in line. Apparently there is a prequel 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.
Things are different for Charles and Anna. Brother Wolf chose you, chose your wolf and left me to follow him. She is an Omega.
This is not the same as submissive. She can calm other wolves, it keeps a pack in line. 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. Witches, werewolves, and things that go bump in the night.
A rouge wolf out in the woods killing is what they signed up for. Charles and Anna must work together to fix this with as few casualties as possible. Figuring out their relationship as they go. 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 that the writing was great and the narration in the audiobook was fantastic.
Also, there was one or two rushed sex scenes and I wanted more than that. View all 64 comments. Set in the same world as the Mercy Thompson series but starts in at an earlier time. Starting with "Cry Wolf", which is set right after the events of "Moon Called", the series run parallel. Cry Wolf Anna never knew werewolves existed until the night she survived a violent attack…and became one herself.
But Anna is that rarest kind of werewolf: And one of the most powerful werewolves in the country is about to recognize her value as a pack member—and as his mate. May 19, Paula Kalin rated it it was amazing Recommended to Paula by: What a great new fun fantasy series!
What a pleasure to see many of the same characters in Cry Wolf. I read a lot of serious books, but really enjoy tapping into fantasy on occasion for some good fluff. I will definitely be continuing the series.

She opened her eyes and met his. The impact was so strong he was amazed that his fingers continued playing without pause.
Fortunately, he'd found that most people were easy to locate at five thirty in the morning. So…I have finally hopped on board, only to fall off again! From 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 prequel to this, a short story, where the two first meet.
I 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. What I DID like reading about was seeing more of Bran the man just draws attention whatever series he graces , more background story on his bitchy mate Leah, and I seriously liked the intro of sweet Warren.
Those side characters were much more interesting. The storyline was dull for the first half — it became more 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. View all 20 comments. Re-read February 14th Even better the 2nd time around!
Anna Latham has suffered physical and mental abuse by the members and the leader of Cry Wolf is the 1st book in Patricia Briggs Alpha and Omega Series, which concentrates on Charles Conrick, who we met previously in the her Mercy Thompson Series. Anna Latham has suffered physical and mental abuse by the members and the leader of the pack that turned her.
Anna has struggled coming to terms being a wolf and her treatment by her pack has caused her pain and she finds it hard to trust Charles at first…. The attraction between Charles and Anna unnerves them both. Anna feels torn between feeling safe with Charles and at the same time fearing him. He feels a loss of control by his feelings for her and the need to protect her…. The best part of this book was the development of their love story…..
The plot is filled with suspense, action, mystery interwoven with characters, old and new that are totally fascinating and engaging…werewolves, fae, witches, vampires……. I loved this book….. View all 11 comments.
Mercy Thompson fans and Urban Fantasy fans. As much as I love Mercy Thompson and her world, I absolutely love the change to third person! I think it suits Briggs much more and the fact that she has more romance in this series makes it all the more better!
It gives us a look into a newly developed bond and there are just so many precious moments between the two! The romantic aspects of the story really lured me in. Anna is such As much as I love Mercy Thompson and her world, I absolutely love the change to third person! Anna is such a sweetheart. Reading about her abusive past makes me understand why she can be so skittish sometimes. I see it as something that adds character to an already complex and strong female heroine. I love the way he looks out of Anna without smothering her.
I can definitely see how compatible they are with one another. But my favourite new character has to be Asil, the Moor. His story is so tragic and heartbreaking! My eyes were glued to the page whenever Asil had page time. From his very first appearance in the book, I was hooked! Love, love, LOVE him! We see Bran in the MT series but in this series, we get a closer look inside the mind of the Marrok. I would love to read more about his relationship with Leah even though she is such a bitch to everyone.

I'm still grumpy about the fact that you need to go dig up a Briggs novella, Alpha and Omega , in a separately published book, On the Prowl , to read the pretty much necessary first part of this story. I would be even grumpier if my library hadn't happened to have a copy of On the Prowl. I also got a little impatient with Anna, our main character and an "Omega werewolf," although you need to cut her some slack because of the events in the Alpha and Omega novella.
But the overall story 3. But the overall storyline, with ancient, bitter events coming back to haunt our characters, was really very good. Review to come.

Three years later came her salvation, a salvation named Charles. Now after what was done to her it is logical that Anna was a bit skitish during the book. This isn't to say that the girl doesn't have a backbone, something that becomes obvious every time someone corners hers and as she slowly comes to the realization that no one is going to hurt her at her new home.
Charles Charles is a very, very dominant wolf even though his father is the Alpha of his pack. When he realizes how Anna has been treated every protective instinct in him goes wild. If you combine this to the fact that his wolf recognizes her as his mate you get an overly protective and overly possessive wolf.
I like Charles. He is a dominant but he doesn't try to assert his dominance over Anna. He is protective of those he loves even when they can take care of themselves , he is loyal and he doesn't show any bitterness over the fact that he follows his father and has become his "pet assassin".
I also enjoy the fact that for a change in a shifter book the male is happy to have found his mate. He wants Anna, no fighting, no resisting. Bran I love Bran. The Marrok seems a bit Jaded in this book. I think Bran brings a little tragedy to the story. I think he is kind of an idiot at how he is handling his "marriage" issues though. On that account I think Bran's at fault. Samuel Another sad spot in the overall story.
I want to know if and how he becomes happy. Asil And here we come to the side story. Asil is a wolf who is over a thousand years old. Asil has some issues as well. I found his story heart-breaking and maybe even a bit more interesting than Anna's.
I loved Asil. Sage Sage is a wolf in the pack. We don't see much of her but I do hope she will end up with Asil. Walter Walter was a newly turned wolf. He was turned against his will and lived in the mountain for months before Anna and Charles found him without knowing exactly what he had become. He was a good man who lived on the mountain alone to save others from his flashbacks to the Vietnam war. The story was nice. More sweet than full of action although it did have some of this as well.
Although reading about the people you might think the book was overly dramatic I have to say it wasn't. It was nice to see how Anna and Charles develop during the story, how Anna starts to trust people again, how Bran and Asil go on with their lives after their tragedies.
I won't tell you more, read the book. It is worth it. View all 17 comments. Reviewed by: Rabid Reads. Any werewolf nut worth their salt should be up to date on all things Patricia Briggs. Well, this is me fixing it, ok? It was howling good! The reasons behind Asil wanting Bran to kill him are now crystal clear, and I loved that Anna was able to bring him some much needed peace.
And, hanging with the Marrok is always a pleasure, even when he goes Beowulf. Exploring what makes her character tick was a real delight, and I enjoyed learning about her omega traits. The third person POV certainly helped on both accounts, and he definitely added an extra layer of enjoyment to my listening experience. View all 10 comments.

Another five and I was completely head over heals for Charles. Loving Charles was expected, but I was surprised at how much I came to care for Anna.
I don't usually like her type, but Briggs depicted her character so well, I couldn't help but adore her. I love the relationship between Anna and Charles. They're absolutely perfect together. I'm extremely excited about finding out what adventures these two will have next and how they'll develop as individuals as well as a couple.

It wasn't Mercy Thompson, that's for sure. The suspense was never really there for me since I knew already, from the Mercy series, that Bran and Charles would be alive in the end. Anna was rescued by Charles a tall, handsome, half- American Indian.
He saved her from a brutalizing Alpha wolf in Chicago, who had kept her captive for 3 years. Injured, but in love, he brings Anna to Montana to be his mate. After arriving in Montana, it is discov It was okay. After arriving in Montana, it is discovered that there is a crazy werewolf out causing trouble in the woods. Bran, the local Alpha, sends his injured son Charles to solve the case. Of course, he brings along his peace giving Omega sweetie, Anna.
There was a stronger romance vibe to this book, than in the Mercy books. The plot seemed more contrived. Make it clear that Anna and Charles are soul mates. Cue love scene. Have the lovers trudge through the snow in pursuit of the rogue wolf who is killing people in the wildernees of Montana.
Make the Alpha Charles wolf vulnerable and soft by keeping him injured, from delayed healing of silver bullet injuries, for the entire book. Have a nasty, black witch, who is seemingly unstoppable appear out of nowhere. And, wa ha ha, cackle, cackle, discover that she is behind the rogue wolf in her attempt to find Asil, another ancient wolf with a secret past. It was just like a dance: What did I like best?

I don't know how popular completos is in America, only that nobody has heard of it here in Australia except those of us who are tight with the ever-growing Chile population.
Basically, Completos is madness in a bun. It's a hotdog with guacamole, tomato, mayonnaise, mustard and sauerkraut. See what I mean? But a good, delicious kind of madness.
Well, Cry Wolf is kind of like Completos only not quite as awesome. It's a good book, enjoyable, interesting, nice I don't know how popular completos is in America, only that nobody has heard of it here in Australia except those of us who are tight with the ever-growing Chile population.
It's a good book, enjoyable, interesting, nicely written with good pacing. It's just weird. It doesn't seem like it should work together. Does the Sauerkraut romance go with the guacamole mystery and the diced tomato action? Mostly, it does.
I can't say I loved it because I found Anna's personality shifts to be inconsistent and frustrating and since the romance wasn't exactly steaming I just took the book for what it was. A good book with elements of romance and paranormal. View 1 comment. Aug 24, AH rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Werewolf lovers.
Otherwise, it will feel like three chapters are missing at the beginning of the book. Briggs not only gives us original werewolf lore but she also puts the reader inside their minds. We get a glimpse of the constant battle for control over the animal instincts of the wolf.
The author also weaves in some Native American magic into her wolf lore.
The novel is set in Montana and the majestic wilderness of the Cabinet Mountains, a great playground for the werewolves. Charles is part Native American, part werewolf.
He is magical, sexy, and deadly. Anna is a special type of wolf-- an Omega, a type of wolf that can calm other wolves. The Omega does not have to obey the Alpha wolf. Omegas are extremely rare and special. Anna is damaged goods. Forced to become a werewolf against her wishes, she was subjected to horrifying abuse. Anna is a survivor and she proves to be brave, strong, and resourceful despite her hardships.
Anna is also a very likable character. Charles and Anna are perfect for each other. The inner wolves chose each other as mates before their human selves were aware. The secondary characters make this story come to life. Asil is an old wolf, and he is very mysterious. I love how his past is slowly revealed.
Bran is a multi-dimensional character. He is the head of all the wolves and is very powerful, though at first glance, he does not seem to be so authoritarian. Bran chose to be in a loveless relationship because he did not want to lose another love again. I really wish Bran would get his own book. I hope to get to the next book Hunting Ground soon.

While I was reading this book it actually reminded me of the native American storytelling meets around the fire I used to go to with friends in the Summers It had the feel and even the melody of those stories, which was exactly what the author meant to express, I am guessing It starts with Anna from the horrible Chicago pack moving to the mountains of Montana to live with her potential mate, the very alpha male Charles.
There are adjustments to be made, a new pack to get acclimated to, and to learn about each other most of all. A rogue Wolf is hurting falks in the mountains and the pack's alpha, Charles dad, sends him and Anna to deal with it. While looking for the elusive lone wolf they stumble upon something malevolent and cunning which poses a serious threat to all wolfs in the aeria and possibly in North America.
Bad guys do some damage, good guys survive, mostly It is an example of an earlier style of writing an UF novel, which is more linear and compact than the more aggressive style the genre has gone towards in the last 5 years, but it is a good read. I recommend it to all UF fans and especially those who can do with less violence and slower character development.
Have fun reading: My second helping of this wonderful book.
