Fair Game


Today's post is on Fair Game by Patricia Briggs.  It is 293 pages long and is published by Ace Books. It is the third in her Alpha and Omega series. The cover has Anna and Charles on it looking cool. The intended reader is someone who has read the first two, likes urban fantasy, and good writing. There is no sex, mild language, and violence in this book. The story is told from the third person perspective of the characters moving from one to the others has the story moves. There Be Spoilers Ahead.

From the dust jacket- They say opposites attract. And in the case of werewolves Anna Latham and Charles Cornick, they mate. The son-and enforcer-of the leader of the North American werewolves, Charles is a dominant alpha. While Anna, an omega, has the rare ability to calm others of her kind.
Now that the werewolves have revealed themselves to humans, they can't afford any bad publicity. Infractions that could have been overlooked in the past must now be punished, and the strain of doing his father's dirty work is taking a toll on Charles.
Nevertheless, Charles and Anna are sent to Boston, when the FBI requests the pack's help on a local serial killer case. They quickly realize that not only the last two victims were werewolves-all of them were. Someone is targeting their kind. And now Anna and Charles have put themselves right in the killer's sights...

Review- Another strong book from Briggs. This one takes place some time after the events of the second novel and the world now knows and has changed by the knowledge of more spiritual creatures. I did not guess the killer in this one until the reveal. I like how Anna is growing as she changes. She is growing into herself and trusting herself more and more. Briggs gives an interesting human character that I would love to see more of.Learning more about the Fae of this world was interesting too. Briggs stay very traditional with them. Very powerful, immortal unless murdered, and beyond human understanding. The world is becoming more complicated and more interesting. I would like to see more of the human supernatural powers other than witch. A very solid third book.

I give this book a Five out of Five stars. I get nothing for my review and I borrowed this book from my local library.
