I love taking a break from traditional romance to visit the wonderful world of Patricia Briggs. Charles and Anna, a spin-off world of the Mercy Thompson world, have solidified themselves as the Marrok’s most dependable within the wolf pack. As one of two Omegas in existence, Anna’s spent time as a commodity in this series. I loved that Burn Bright gave us a lot more insight to Charles and even his own father, Bran the Marrok.
As Bran is out of town and has left Charles in charge of the pack, a mysterious phone call from the wildlings (outcast or “broken” wolves) sets the pack in a panic. As more bodies are discovered and a plot begins to reveal itself from inside the pack, Briggs does a fantastic job of making readers second guess every character they’ve either loved or hated. Anna does have her moment with pushing the mystery narrative when she helps a dissociated wolf. Beautifully written, the way Anna breaks through mental and physical barriers with her Omega side is something powerful to read.
Briggs had me second guesses throughout the whole novel! Watching our Alpha and Omega try to save their pack was like peaking in to a world I could never imagine. Anna and Charles connection is so ingrained and strong. Their instincts are sharp and o point when it comes to one another that watching them investigate or even fight an enemy is like watching a beautiful dance. Another stellar chapter to the shifter world of Patricia Briggs!
In her bestselling Alpha and Omega series, Patricia Briggs “spins tales of werewolves, coyote shifters, and magic and, my, does she do it well” (USATODAY.com). Now mated werewolves Charles Cornick and Anna Latham face a threat like no other–one that lurks too close to home…
They are the wild and the broken. The werewolves too damaged to live safely among their own kind. For their own good, they have been exiled to the outskirts of Aspen Creek, Montana. Close enough to the Marrok’s pack to have its support; far enough away to not cause any harm.
With their Alpha out of the country, Charles and Anna are on call when an SOS comes in from the fae mate of one such wildling. Heading into the mountainous wilderness, they interrupt the abduction of the wolf–but can’t stop blood from being shed. Now Charles and Anna must use their skills–his as enforcer, hers as peacemaker–to track down the attackers, reopening a painful chapter in the past that springs from the darkest magic of the witchborn…
