Hunting Ground


Today's post is on Hunting Ground by Patricia Briggs. It is the second in her Alpha & Omega series. It is 286 pages long and published by Ace. The cover is dark blue with the two main characters on it. The intended reader is someone who has read the first book, likes urban fantasy, and a little romance. There is some language, implied sex, and violence in this book. The story is told from the third person close perspective of the character's moving from one to the next as needed. There Be Spoilers Ahead.

From the back of the book- Anna Latham didn’t know how complicated life could be until she became a werewolf. And until she was mated to Charles Cornick, the son — and enforcer — of Bran, the leader of the North American werewolves, she didn’t know how dangerous it could be either...
Anna and Charles have just been enlisted to attend a summit to present Bran’s controversial proposition: that the wolves should finally reveal themselves to humans. But the most feared Alpha in Europe is dead set against the plan — and it seems like someone else might be too. When Anna is attacked by vampires using pack magic, the kind of power only werewolves should be able to draw on, Charles and Anna must combine their talents to hunt down whoever is behind it all — or risk losing everything...

Review- A very solid second book in a series. There is more plot, more character development, and more world building in this book. We get to move out of the small town that Anna and Charles live in to explore pack relations in Seattle. There are Fae, crazy other wolves, and different witches. Briggs does so much with this book. Anna and Charles are still getting to know each other but they are invested in being together. I really liked their interactions in this book. I did guess who the villain was early on but that did not ruin it for me and I did not guess all the villains or what they would do. I am very curious about where Briggs is going to take these characters next.

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