Fair Game (Alpha and Omega Novels)by Patricia Briggs
Synopses & Reviews
Patricia Briggs, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Mercy Thompson novels, "always enchants her readers." (Lynn Viehl, New York Times bestselling author) Now her Alpha and Omega series-set in a world of shifting shapes, loyalty, and passion- brings werewolves out of the darkness and into a society where fear and prejudice could make the hunters prey...
They say opposites attract. And in the case of werewolves Anna Latham and Charles Cornick, they mate. The son-and enforcer-of the leader of the North American werewolves, Charles is a dominant alpha. While Anna, an omega, has the rare ability to calm others of her kind.
Now that the werewolves have revealed themselves to humans, they can't afford any bad publicity. Infractions that could have been overlooked in the past must now be punished, and the strain of doing his father's dirty work is taking a toll on Charles.
Nevertheless, Charles and Anna are sent to Boston, when the FBI requests the pack's help on a local serial killer case. They quickly realize that not only the last two victims were werewolves-all of them were. Someone is targeting their kind. And now Anna and Charles have put themselves right in the killer's sights...
"Briggs's third installation in the Alpha and Omega series (after Hunting Ground) suffuses a paranormal procedural with political conflict and relationship issues between dominant Alpha werewolf Charles Cornick and his Omega mate Anna Latham. Now that werewolves have come out to humans, Charles must act as his father's enforcer and assassin to eliminate members of the pack that stir up bad publicity. However, Charles complies not for a love of the hunt, but rather to please his father, Bran. To give Charles a break from the constant killing, Bran sends his son and Anna to Boston to help the FBI on a decades-long paranormal serial murder investigation that soon involves black magic and the fae. Briggs enhances the excitement of the case by integrating it with Anna and Charles's relationship, the dialogue between Charles the man and his Brother Wolf, how both are affected by his hunting, and Anna's determination to help her mate. Though this thrilling page-turner occasionally suffers from Briggs's heavy-handed politics, fans of the series and newcomers alike will still find plenty of excitement to keep them happily engaged.
