Book recommendations are a great way to discover new books, but sometimes they don’t make the cut. Patricia Brigg’s Cry Wolf was mentioned to me by a friend and I was pretty pumped for it considering it has one of my favourite supernatural creatures—werewolves. I even heard about its short story prequel Alpha & Omega, which I decided to read first.
The story revolves around Anna who is attacked one night, changed into a werewolf against her will, and then for the next three years her own pack mates abuse her emotionally, physically, and sexually. The prequel helps readers understand her plight and how she eventually meets Charles, a true born wolf who explains that they are destined to be mates. Also, he reveals to her that she is an Omega with a powerful presence that calms the wolves around her. In Cry Wolf, Anna goes with Charles to see his home and meet his pack. They learn about a rogue werewolf who is bound to dark magic that could threaten all of the pack, so they go hunting for it before it causes too much damage. Continue reading →

Overtime, he is introduced to the secret world of werewolves, finding out there are two kinds: the born and the bitten. The born become full-fledged wolves while the bitten become half-human, half-wolf creatures. A mad scientist, a very old, bitten-werewolf , is seeking out a “cure” to wipe out the existence of the werewolves, and Connor is caught in the middle of the feud. Continue reading →
