INTRODUCING THE ALPHA AND OMEGA NOVELS…
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. But Anna is that rarest kind of werewolf: an Omega. And one of the most powerful werewolves in the country will recognize her value as a pack member—and as his mate.
This was essentially a Mercy Thompson book, staring someone other than Mercy Thompson. I was rather disappointed in Cry Wolf. For the first book in a new series, even one set in an established world, there should be more background. The story starts immediately after a main character has been shot, then killed off his rival. At no point in the book is this described, but it is referred to repeatedly. Now, on to the good stuff. The story is well written, the plot is well thought out and coherent. The characters are believable, and written such that the reader feels invested in who they are. The book seems a bit short, but I couldn’t put it down. If I was to give it a rating it would be 3.5 Stars, and about 4.5 hours of sleep lost.
