I’ll get in early, if you’re generally not a fan of fiction you can skip this one. Also if you prefer not to read fantasy fiction involving monsters, ghosts, and beasts… well you can skip this one too.
Cry Wolf is book 1 of the Alpha & Omega series written by Patricia Briggs. There is actually a short story that comes before this book (On the Prowl) and if you are a fan of the above mentioned style of writing I recommend you start with that for the full story. This book leans towards romance, taking the time for relationship development between our 2 main characters Anna & Charles, but there is more then enough fast paced danger and adventure to boot.
Anna became a werewolf after being attacked one night. She ends up spending 3 years at the bottom of the Chicago pack being held there by the sadistic Alpha that was using her for something she didn’t even know she was. Charles is the son of the Marrock, the leader of the North American werewolves and not only saves her from the scumbag but opens her eyes to what she is, an Omega.
One of my all time favourite series. A great distraction if you are after a fast book that you can’t put down. There are 2 more in the series to date, if you enjoy the first I recommend picking them both up asap!
