Fair Game by Patricia Briggs

Genre:  Adult Urban Fantasy
Alpha and Omega Series, Book 3

Description (taken from Goodreads):
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...

Let me start off with I am a major fan of Patricia Briggs' books.  I absolutely love her Mercy Thompson series and this (Alpha and Omega) series.  The lastest book in the Mercy Thompson series is the last one of Patricia Briggs' books that I read, and I was a little disappointed.  With that note, please note I'm not going to touch this book's plot line, and my review is most likely leaning towards my opinion of the series as a whole.

In a world of werewolves, fae, and vampires, the murder mystery becomes a lot more interesting.  And I absolutely loved the serial killer mystery in this book.  Granted it was predictable, and I did catch a few twists ahead of time.  However, the ending was really, really good.  And even though my opinion of the Mercy Thompson series went down a little with the last book, I am anxiously awaiting the next book in that series as well as this series (both series are set in the same setting).  Let's just say the series just set things on fire, and it's burning.  Will it go out or get worse?  We'll have to wait until the next book.

I recommend all fans of adult urban fantasy should read this series as well as the Mercy Thompson series.  Patricia Briggs is one of my favorite authors, and you can clearly see why in her writing.  I can't wait until the next one comes out.

  1. I agree, Patricia Brrigs is fantastic and the ending to Fair Game was absolutely fantastic. Not only will it heavily impact what happens in the next Alpha and Omega book, but it'll also affect what happens in the next Mercy book as well, since they both belong to the same 'universe.' Don't you just love Anna and Charles relationship?
