Our Review [by Shawnie – LITERAL ADDICTION’s Associate Reviewer]:
PATRICIA BRIGGS, HAS DONE IT AGAIN.

The wait is over. Fair Game, the newest installment in the Alpha and Omega series, is here, and let me be the first to tell you all that it is AWESOME!

The first thing you’ll notice when you begin this book, is that it’s a lot darker than the first two novels. When I read the Prologue, I was expecting something lovey dovey between Charles and Anna (probably because that is what I wanted to see from them), but that is so not what we get - Mrs. Briggs hits us hard with despair and loneliness in the shape of a small child, and then death to top it all off. I found myself trying to figure out what this all had to do with the story, but once the prologue is done, we meet Anna… Briggs keeps us on the edge of our seats with this one, because you never know which way the story will go.

Charles has dealt more deaths in the short amount of time since his father - The Marrok - brought the North American Wolves out to the public than in his entire two hundred years of life. And wouldn't you know, it’s starting to take a toll on our Alpha male, who would never ask for help from his Anna because he wants to protect her. HOW DO YOU THINK THAT'S GOING FOR HIM? *laughs* It’s sad though really, because he is pushing her away, and we - the readers - start thinking that they aren't going to last. Brother wolf isn't having that though. *GRINS* No I will not tell you what he does because that would be cheating, but Bran, our cool and calm Marrok, has a plan now that he is seeing what is happening. (WARNING! YOU WILL WANT TO SHOOT HIM IN THE BEGINNING.)

Charles needs a buffer, so what does Bran do? He sends Anna, out as a consultant for the F.B.I, which makes Charles her muscle on this latest adventure of theirs. Soon, because nothing ever goes smoothly for these two, they find themselves knee deep in a situation that can either spiral out of control or mend something that is broken. I will let you guys decide which one it is or is it both? Hmmm *GRINS*

Within this installment we meet some interesting new characters and get a taste of some old oness too; like Asil who is a personal favorite of mine. Briggs gives you everything with this book - just like Cry Wolf and Hunting Ground.

We get to see Anna as she grows and becomes the women she and Charles believe she can and will be. She isn't all the way there, but a certain situation sure makes her see herself differently, and she will make you want to cheer her on. GO ANNA!

There is so much in this book: romance (you have to wait for it), action (what's a Patricia Briggs novel without some action), plus a lot of humor in this one too. I swear I was laughing so hard at times I had to go back and reread those sections again. ¿ Trust me when I tell you that this book is worth every second it takes you to read it and then some. The ending leaves you drooling for more… so much more.

I cannot wait for the fourth book, which we all know isn't going to be out any time soon, which sucks, but we have Mercy Thompson to look forward to in the beginning of next year.

P.S. THERE BE GHOST IS THIS BOOK, AND THEY AREN'T NICE. *Laughs*

LITERAL ADDICTION’s Associate Reviewer gives Fair Game 5 Skulls and would give it another ½ if there were one to give.

Pick up Fair Game if you haven't already, and if you haven’t started this series yet, go and get the first 2 as well because you are missing out.
