Anna never knew werewolves existed, until the night she survived a violent attack... and became one herself. After three years at the bottom of the pack, she'd learned to keep her head down and never, ever trust dominant males. Then Charles Cornick, the enforcer- and son- of the leader of the North American werewolves, came into her life.

Charles insists that not only is Anna his mate, but she is also a rare and valued Omega wolf. And it is Anna's inner strength and calming presence that will prove invaluable as she and Charles go on the hunt in search of a rogue werewolf- a creature bound in magic so dark that it could threaten all of the pack.

I don't know why but I didn't realize until I started reading this that it was with the Marrok. Anyhow, I was so excited to read this. I've been wondering about this side of things since I read the Mercy books. You get a little taste but nothing that's this close.

Charles, the Marroks son, has finally found his mate in Anna. Finding your mate is never an easy thing, even though you'd like it to be. Charles has been on his own for so many years, he's a very private person. Anna hasn't had an easy time of it. She was attacked and changed against her will. Not to mention, since the, she's been abused mentally, emotionally, and sexually since then. Charles basically becomes her savior. However, it's not simple. It's hard for Charles to open up, Anna feels out of place. And instead of talking about their issues, they dance around them. Which really drives me nuts, by the way.

There's also a rouge werewolf stirring up trouble which is not good. Especially with Bran on the verge of revealing that werewolves do in fact exist. So Bran sends Charles into the woods to find and bring the wolf to heel. Even though Charles is injured and not fully healed. Anna goes along against protest from Charles. Anna can use her special gifts to help soothe and help this rogue.

This book was awesome. I just bought the next books in the series. I'm kinda obsessed with knowing more about the mysterious Bran and his branch of wolves. I must know. You guys definitely should read this book if you haven't yet, it's amazing!

Other Books In the Series (2-3):


  1. I enjoyed this book as well. Glad you did too. I totally understand how you feel about the main character's dancing around their issues . . . that sometimes frustrates me. haha. Anyway great review!

  2. I love this series. I think just as much as Mercy series. I read the first 2 books so long ago but I remember in Fair Game they danced around their issues a bit too. Still awesome though.

  3. I like this series but I confess not as much as the Mercy one. So I'm still long to read them. I have the second one at home to read for a while.

  4. I love this series. I am a big Mercy and Anna/Charles fan. I've been saving the latest book in the series "for the right time" so I can focus on it! :)

  5. Hey Bran is mine! LOL This series is very good, Briggs knows her men and Ana loosens up on the succeeding books.

  6. I think I read this one a while back but I don't remember much about it. Maybe it's time for a re-read (you're review confirms that)!

  7. Even though this is very connected to the Mercy books, I liked that it really dug into the werewolf world more and had a different feel for Charles and Anna's story. Very enjoyable series!

    Nice review!

  8. This series gets better with each book. I've listened to them all on audio. I think I might like it better than Mercy's series.
