"another great Urban Fantasy series"
It is a complicated life being a werewolf and Anna Latham
knows this better than most. However she didn't know how
dangerous it could be until she mated with Charles Cornick,
son and enforcer of Bran, the leader of the North American
werewolves. Being an Omega only makes her werewolf life
just that little bit more confusing. Certain rules have to
be followed, emotions blocked and alot of packs want their
very own Omega.
Bran has a controversial proposition he has made to the
werewolves all over the world. He believes they should all
reveal themselves to the humans. A small summit has been
organised to talk about the werewolves coming out but for
certain reasons Bran can not attend. Anna and Charles take
up the job and find themselves in Seattle trying to turn
around the decisions of the wolves who are dead set against
Although it seems like there are more people against the
outing of the wolves. Anna is attacked by vampires and
people are getting hurt or turning up dead. So Anna and
Charles combine their powers and talents to try and hunt
down the one responsible for the attacks or they could lose
Hunting Ground is the second book in the Alpha and
Omega series and it is much better than book one, Cry Wolf.
However in saying that I also have to say that I am not yet
in love with this series as much as I am in the Mercy
Thompson books. They may be set in the same world but the
style and characters are wide apart from each other.
In this book the emotional relationship that Anna and
Charles are growing into really interested. New couples
usually seem to be in the honeymoon phase for a while but
they are still getting to know each other and their limits.
The whole werewolf politics and ways are still, in alot of
respects, a mystery to Anna and it is fascinating to read
about how she is coping with everything. The plot in this
sequel to Cry wolf, didn't have alot of Bran in it but did
expand on characters. Hopefully some of these will appear
in future books and help build up this series.
I did enjoy this book but as I mentioned before this isn't
my favourite series by the author. If you are a Patricia
Briggs fan then this is a must read. However if you are a
Mercy Thompson fan you may be slightly disappointed. All in
all this is a brilliant author and another great Urban
Fantasy series. I look forward to more Alpha and Omega
books and following Anna and Charles through their life
