Anna never knew werewolves existed, until the night she survived a violent attack... and became one herself. After three years at the bottom of the pack, she'd learned to keep her head down and never, ever trust dominant males. Then Charles Cornick, the enforcer—and son—of the leader of the North American werewolves, came into her life.

Charles insists that not only is Anna his mate, but she is also a rare and valued Omega wolf. And it is Anna's inner strength and calming presence that will prove invaluable as she and Charles go on the hunt in search of a rogue werewolf—a creature bound in magic so dark that it could threaten all of the pack.

Original Review circa March 15, 2012


First Thought When Finished: Charles has to be one of the most perfect Alpha men I have read!

What I Loved: Charles! Charles! Charles! He was such a wonderful Alpha Male with the combo of toughness and giving. Each time he gave Anna a choice on whether to be with him or not, my heart melted. I also loved Anna! She has a lot of healing to do but she faced things head on with only a little trepidation. She was very tough indeed. I also loved Bran and Samuel though I am sure those that have read the Mercy series know more about them. (I haven’t read that series). I really loved Walter too! I could go on about the story but I don’t want to give anything away.

What I Liked: Patricia made me feel like I was there with Charles and Anna. Her descriptive storytelling hooked me and kept me mesmerized till the end.

Audio Review: Holter Graham did a really good job though it took me a bit to “warm up” to his audio. Towards the end though, it is his voice as Charles that made me love this audiobook.

Final Thought: Since I am probably the last person in the world to read a Patricia Briggs book—I don’t imagine there is much I can say. Other than, I love that this is a UF about a couple (kind of like Bones and Cat) which means there is a REAL romance. I love that!


Review August 2014


Book Thoughts: Cry Wolf by Patricia Briggs in a nut shell: Loved it even more the 2nd time

Audio Thoughts: Can’t imagine anyone but Holter doing this series. I don’t know why I had trouble with him the first time. I love him now!

  1. I just recently listened to this series for the first time (haven’t read either). I enjoyed this book a lot, but it was the second and third titles that really pulled me in both in the story/romance, but also narration. I struggled a little with Holter Graham’s performance as Charles, but by the second book, he found a great voice. I also feel that the complexity of his performance increased in the 2nd and 3rd books.

    I do enjoy how balanced Charles and Anna are – they complement each other perfectly and create a wonderful romance. I’m really looking forward to the next book, out next year!

  2. I have read these books and liked them. I haven’t listened to anything narrated by Holter Graham, but I’m considering listening to these audiobooks. I like that you liked his narration, that’s a good endorsement.
