Praised for having “the perfect blend of action, romance, suspense, and paranormal”*, #1 New York Times bestselling author Patrica Briggs's Alpha and Omega series now takes readers into the middle of some bad supernatural business…
For once, mated werewolves Charles Cornick and Anna Lantham are not traveling because of Charles’s role as his father’s enforcer. This time, their trip to Arizona is purely personal. Or at least their visit starts out that way...
Charles and Anna soon discover that a dangerous fae being is on the loose, replacing human children with simulacrums. The fae have started a cold war with humanity that's about to heat up—and Charles and Anna are in the crossfire.
*Rex Robot Reviews
Briggs s Alpha & Omega novels are more episodic than those in the Mercy Thompson series, allowing for a more intimate focus. In her new A&O book, werewolves Charles and Anna Cornick investigate a gruesome supernatural mystery, visit a terminally ill old friend at his Arizona horse farm, and mostly avoid discussing Anna s desire to have children. Their planned quiet trip to Arizona is anything but; they must break a spell that nearly results in the murder-suicide of a mother and her children, and when a little girl literally dissolves before their eyes, the twosome realize they are fighting a very dangerous fae. Charles and Anna s lively interactions with helpful federal law enforcement add some spark. Anna s Omega wolf whisperer qualities shine, and the couple s scenes with the dying man are hauntingly beautiful. The Cornicks work seamlessly together but sweep their interpersonal messiness under the rug, even though Briggs shows those around them tackling their issues head-on.
Always a Pleasure
