Book Review: On the Prowl (Alpha & Omega #0.5) By Patricia Briggs


On the Prowl
(Alpha & Omega #0.5)
By Patricia Briggs


Published: August 7th 2007
Publisher: Berkley


In Cry Wolf, New York Times bestselling author Patricia Briggs started a new urban fantasy series set in the world of Mercy Thompson, but with rules of its own. Now, read Alpha & Omega, the novella that inspired the new series, and see how it all began.
Anna Latham never knew werewolves existed, until the night she survived a violent attack and became one herself. After three years at the bottom of the Chicago pack, she's learned to keep her head down and never, ever trust dominant males. 

But when she discovers wrong doing in her pack, she has to go above her Alpha's head to ask for help. Charles Cornick is the son and enforcer of the leader of the North American werewolves. Now his father has sent him to Chicago to clean up a problem there.

My Review:

**This is a review of Patricia Briggs's story ONLY**

Even after years have gone by I still find myself drawn back to the Alpha & Omega Series. I have re-read this series a couple of times and I'm still not getting tired of the story or the writing. 

I love Anna. She's the beaten down, but not yet broken heroine who finds the strength in herself to fight to stay alive. She's very docile and sweet. She always wants what's best for everyone and when Charles is around, she actually speaks her mind.

I adore Charles and the way he immediately wants to help and protect Anna. Sure he has STRONG feelings on what he'd like to happen between them, but he controls them because he understands she's skittish around other people, let alone dominate werewolves. He's also his pack's assassin, so he has a reputation. Good thing Anna only finds out after they've gotten to know each other at least to the point where she knows he won't hurt her.

My Favorite Quotes:

"All your wolves are your children, Leo, you know that. They are yours to love and feed, to guard and protect, to guide and to teach."

"'That was a prime example of testosterone poisoning, (...)'"

"He'd have to call his brother, Samuel, and tell him that he'd finally learned that his face wouldn't crack if he smiled."
