Alpha and Omega Series, Book 4
Note: This is the fourth book in a series, not to mention the twelfth in two series from the same universe. If you haven't started it, beware that anything said below kind of let's you know what happens in earlier books.
Description (taken from Goodreads):
For once, mated werewolves Charles and Anna are not traveling because of Charles’s role as his father’s enforcer. This time, their trip to Arizona is purely personal, as Charles plans to buy Anna a horse for her birthday. Or at least it starts out that way...
Charles and Anna soon discover that a dangerous Fae being is on the loose, replacing human children with simulacrums. The Fae’s cold war with humanity is about to heat up—and Charles and Anna are in the cross fire.
Anna, an omega werewolf, is living the dream with her mate, Charles. Only thing is they haven't really taken a real vacation. So when Charles gets a call from an old friend, they decide to make their way to Arizona with the sole purpose of buying a horse.
But all things supernatural tend to follow Anna and Charles anywhere they go. While the Fae have all but left the human world and holed up on their faerie reservations, Anna and Charles soon find out not all of them have left for good. In fact, one has been released, and he is hell bent on doing what he's always done: feeding off of children. As the two race to figure out what's going on and protect their own, they find a war is brewing. Only question is which side will the werewolves be on?
I really don't have anything negative to say when it comes to Patricia Briggs' novels. I love diving into her stories. And I find I enjoy the Alpha and Omega series more because it changes points of view in order to get the whole story. It actually makes it flow better and has no confusion when switching narrators. And there's nothing bad to be said of the relationship between Anna and Charles. This book definitely appeases the paranormal romance lover in me.
If you're a paranormal romance lover and you haven't read Patricia Briggs, shame on you. Consider this as me throwing my copies of her books at you and telling you to read them. Now.
