Anne Latham didn't know how complicated life could be until she became a werewolf. And until she was mated to Charles Cornick, the son--and enforcer--of Bran, the leader of the North American werewolves, she didn't know how dangerous it could be either...

Anna and Charles have just been enlisted to attend a summit to present Bran's controversial proposition: that the wolves should finally reveal themselves to humans. But the most feared Alpha in Europe is dead set against the plan--and it seems like someone else might be, too. When Anna is attacked by vampires using pack magic, the kind of power only werewolves should be able to draw on, Charles and Anna must combine their talents to hunt down whoever is behind it all--or risk losing everything...

I read it when it first came out--then just re-read it. ( Keep in mind I have nearly 500 books on my to be read shelves.) I love the way Briggs treats her characters. Always less about werewolves than it is about people and relationships. Recovering from abuse is the central underlying theme of this book--Anna, Charles, and others need healing.

This whole series is fantastic Urban Fantasy! Briggs works in werewolves, vampires, the Fae, and other assorted Others in this series, and the Alpha & Omega premise is refreshing.

Authentic, engaging characters, fabulous plotting, deft touches of humor, and breathtaking suspense and adventure--Briggs is at her best in this series, so start at the beginning with the intro short story Alpha and Omega in the anthology On the Prowl. Once you meet Anna and Charles, you'll want to sink your teeth (wolf or human) into their subsequent romance and adventures:Cry Wolf, Hunting Ground, Fair Game, and finally, Dead Heat :-) Hope Briggs never runs out of inspiration for this series!!

Decent effort for a werewolf book. Not much sex, but otherwise lots of action.

Second book in the series, and a great book. A lot of action and the characters are amazing.

Power came to her call, and she said, "I WILL MAKE MYSELF SAFE."

Pivotal moment for Anna, the Omega wolf lead character--and a line that resonated deeply with me!

Charles didn’t bother trying to talk. He had nothing to say anyway. His grandfather had often told him that he tried too hard to move trees when a wiser man would walk around them. His grandfather had been a medicine man and liked to speak in metaphors.

"Women are the bloodthirsty sex,... We get the reputation, but it is only because the women stand behind us, and say, 'Kill it. Squish it.'" pg. 166
