Mated werewolves Charles Cornick and Anna Latham must discover what could make an entire community disappear--before it's too late--in this thrilling entry in the #1 New York Times bestselling Alpha and Omega series.
In the wilds of the Northern California mountains, all the inhabitants of a small town have gone missing. It's as if the people picked up and left their possessions behind. With a mystery on their hands and no jurisdiction on private property, the FBI dumps the whole problem in the lap of the land owner, Aspen Creek, Inc.--aka the business organization of the Marrok's pack.
Somehow, the pack of the Wolf Who Rules is connected to a group of vanished people. Werewolves Charles Cornick and Anna Latham are tasked with investigating, and soon find that a deserted town is the least of the challenges they face.
Death sings in the forest, and when it calls, Charles and Anna must answer. Something has awakened in the heart of the California mountains, something old and dangerous--and it has met werewolves before.

There was nothing that I did not like in this book. Patricia Briggs holds the reader captive (in my opinion) from beginning to end. And even then you are looking for the book to continue.
The Alpha and Omega books are wonderful. I hope that the author continues the series.
WILD SIGN = A wild Success
Patricia Briggs makes the idea of werewolves living semi-hidden in American society convincing because they go up against such frighteningly real bad guys. In this book, U.S. werewolf leader Bran sends his top troubleshooters, son and daughter-in-law, Charles and Anna Cormick, out after an entity that has resurfaced to decimate a town in the mountainous wilds of Northern California years after it messed with his mate. Reading this book was a flying dream akin to shooting the rapids, cliff diving, watching or dancing a stage show with good choreography, rooting along your favorite Olympiad to a win, or co-creating, with one’s beloved, a great meal for your favorite people and loving it. In other words, Briggs is a Talent at the top of her game. You wouldn’t have to be a series reader to appreciate this book’s dynamic: it’s all about family protecting their own. But folks who have first read BURN BRIGHT will appreciate it a whole lot more. I recommend you do yourself a favor and enter the series with any of the books from 0.5-4, and then read BURN BRIGHT before reading WILD SIGN. New fans and those transitioning over from the Mercy series will enjoy going back to take the books in order and watching the characters develop. Big fun.
Plot is completely based off The Outsider by Stephen King. Thrown off by the cussing. Even when Ben cusses, we know he did it and what he was referencing, but the actual words aren’t written. This absolutely could have been a short story. It just drags repetitively. I feel like you had to make a publishing deadline and just coughed this up, half baked. Disappointed. Also, we know who Mercy and Adam are or we wouldn’t be reading the book. Why is there an explanation of who they are every time they are mentioned?
