Overview

Includes bonus material and a never-before-published version of issue #1!

Patricia Briggs, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Mercy Thompson novels, “always enchants her readers" (Lynn Viehl). Now her Alpha and Omega series—set in a world of shifting shapes, loyalties, and passions—comes vividly to life in this collection of four comic books based on Cry Wolf, the first book in the series.

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’s 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 the pack…

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Briggs’s Mercy Thompson urban fantasy series has its fans, with her novel Cry Wolf hitting the New York Times bestseller list a few years back. But based on this poorly conceived graphic novel adaptation, it’s hard to see why. Set in a small Montana town that’s secretly run by a powerful clan of werewolves, the drama rotates around the arrival of Anna, a woman who was turned into a werewolf by the Chicago clan and who seems to be something called an “Omega.” Why her being an Omega is important is kept secret, but wouldn’t you know there’s an Alpha around to balance things out? There is some weakly flickering romance between Anna and her were soul mate Charles—son of the clan leader—and a light mystery involving some mysterious attacks on humans, but nothing that would keep readers coming back for volume two. The blocky artwork will help ensure that the only people much interested will be fans of the (assumedly more engaging) print novels. (Oct.)
From the Publisher
PRAISE FOR THE ALPHA AND OMEGA NOVELS

“A TERRIFIC SAGA.”*

“Patricia Briggs is amazing…Her Alpha and Omega novels are fantastic. In fact, they’ve contributed greatly to new works in the paranormal romance field featuring werewolves.”—Fresh Fiction

“The story line, characters, world…everything is so unbelievably well developed…The Alpha and Omega series has a wonderful quality of emotion-driven stories.”—Bitten Books

“Magnificent!...If you’re looking for a fantasy/paranormal series that will knock your socks off with nonstop action, character development, and romance, then the Alpha and Omega series is it…Patricia Briggs is pure bliss!”—The Romance Readers Connection

“The key to this super Alpha and Omega urban fantasy series is Patricia Briggs’s uncanny world-building skills that cleverly interweave a full culture into the plot.”—*Midwest Book Review

“A great start to [a] new werewolf series. Ms. Briggs is a fantastic storyteller…The action is filled with dangerous surprises, and the romance will find a way into your heart.”—Darque Reviews

“Patricia Briggs is one of my favorite urban fantasists as she makes her alternative world filled with werewolves, witches, and spirits (oh my) seem genuine.”—Genre Go Round Reviews

    Good Graphic Novel

    I enjoyed this graphic rendition of Patricia Briggs's Alpha and Omega novel. There were a few pieces in it that either weren't part of the original book or I missed during my reading of the original that made the graphic novel story line very interesting. My only disappointment was that Charles and Bran didn't look much like my vision of them. Still in all a very good read for those who enjoy the Briggs story.

    Nope

    This was confusing and just not very good. I still admire patricia briggs but there was a combination of small bad things that resulted in an overall negative read. Comics and graphic novels are not the same as a regular book. The art has to compliment the writing, and while I found the cover art amazing the overall illustration was meh. For this sort of storyline the artwork must be thrilling when the writing is not. Also, while I personally have read several of her actual books this series was not among them. To my dismay, I found that meant this volume was convoluted and confusing to read. I was upset that I spent eleven or so dollars on it. This will not prevent my reading her in the future but I won't be hitting up the graphic novel side any longer.

    Gorsecloud to Fadingstar

    "The first kitis coming." Gorsecloud said. Suddenly a dark brown kit plopped out. "A tom." Gorsecloud reported. "Spottedfire, go get some rasberry leaves." Gorsecloud mewed. Then a pale red kit comes out. "A she-kit." Gorsecloud feels Fadingstars belly. "Two more." She anounced. And just like that, a white tabby kit with ginger paws plopped out. "A tom." Gorsecloud meowed. And then a dark silver kit with blue eyes popped out. "A she-kit." Gorsecloud mewed. "Fadingstar, you have two she-kits and two toms. Congradulations!"

    She led her kits into their den once again. Wow. Allot of work being a mother and a leader. She let gorsekit and the others suckle. (Pls and try do be more active) Fadingstar silently left her kits to sleep for the rest of the night and walked into camp.

    Feel ripped off

    I don't recall seeing this listed as a graphic novel. Very disappointed. Thought I was getting a real book. How do I get a refund?

    Sadness

    I love the series and was excited to learn more about Anna and Charles. These are comics which unfortunately are not easy to view on my nook. Lots of exercize for the fingers trying to make the text large enough to read. I want the 300 pages of words back if this is the alternative.
