It has taken me a while to begin this series and not because I wasn’t interested. No, it took me a while because I really love Mercy Thompson series and I wasn’t ready to switch. But I am glad I did!

Stars: 4 out of 5
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. Then Charles Cornick, the enforcer—and son—of the leader of the North American werewolves, came into her life.
Charles insists that not only is Anna his mate, but she is also a rare and valued Omega wolf. And it is Anna’s inner strength and calming presence that will prove invaluable as she and Charles go on the hunt in search of a rogue werewolf—a creature bound in magic so dark that it could threaten all of the pack.
This is one of those books I read right till the end and didn’t write a single thought down along the way. Even now, I feel like I am still processing this story. Patrica Briggs is a very talented writer and I still find myself surprised how much I loved this book. Switching over to Charles and Anna’s characters was easy and falling in love with them was even easier. Let’s not forget about Bran. Reading more about him was really fun! Getting an insight on why he is the way he is and more importantly why he is with his mate – not only enlightening but also explains SO much.
I really liked Anna’s character. She has been through the unimaginable and she is still strong and fierce in her own way. There is so much of the werewolf world that Anna doesn’t understand. I’m excited to see her character grow! Charles is growing on me. I find the gifts he has from his mothers side interesting. I am curious how that will play out in future books. The masks he hides behind, I mean wears seems like a necessary evil but it is so sad. I am say that he has been shaped to be the killer he is.
Overall, this book was emotional, more so than I thought it would be. If you haven’t already, I would recommend you start the series with the short story “Alpha and Omega” in the book On the Prowl. Cry Wolf picks up right where the short story leaves off and does not disappoint.
