Just had to share this. Day off and I should be cleaning house or something, but got riveted on the above book and HAD to finish it!
FAIR GAME by Patricia Briggs is the new Alpha and Omega novel due out on March 6th. Managed to get an early copy. WOW I LOVED this book! I have to admit that the Mercy Thompson series by Patricia Briggs is my favourite series but this book was a very pleasant surprise.
In Fair Game Charles is having troubles. The Werewolves have 'come out' to the general public and Bran, Charles father and Marrok, has become tougher in his dealings with werewolves who 'slip up'. There are no second chances and as his father's executioner it falls to Charles to carry out the punishments. This is not sitting well with Charles. He is hurting. Anna, his mate and the Omega, knows this. Charles is cutting her out and it hurts. When werewolves are being killed in Boston Bran decides to send Anna along to help with the investigation with Charles as her 'bodyguard'. It is meant to distract Charles, to have him help solve a problem instead of just killing. There sets the scene for this new book.
I won't give away all the details of the plot but there is lots of adventure - an interesting FBI agent, an Alpha who seemed a little...icky at first and a mix of Fae creatures. The thing I really loved about this book was that it gave us insight into other characters in Briggs' world. I really LOVE Bran and would enjoy hearing more about him and his story. We seem to get snippets of it throughout all Briggs' books whether they are this series or the Mercy Thompson series but I want Bran to have his own book and his own little stab at happiness. Surely he deserves some happiness - grin.
This is well worth the price of the hardcover and it's a nice addition to my bookshelves. GREAT Book! If you haven't read any of Patricia Briggs' Mercy Thompson or Alpha and Omega series I would recommend them especially if you love urban fantasy. They all have great stories and great characters. They aren't filled with sex scenes and overdone romance but have characters you want to learn more about and can't wait to read.
