Overview

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 it’s own. Now, read the eSpecial, Alpha and 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 wrongdoing 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. Charles never expected to find Anna, a rare Omega wolf and he certainly never expected to recognize her as his mate

First off, let me say this is not a novel so stop complaining about its length. It is, as advertised, a short story. The story may only be 78 pages but it is totally worth the three bucks. Briggs actually wrote this story before begining the Alpha and Omega series. It prequels the series and tells how Anna and Charles (the main characters) met. Anna, who is an Omega wolf is lving in the Chicago pack and being physically, sexually and mentally abused. One day she see's a boy's picture in the paper telling about his disappearance. She recognizes the boy because a member of her pack took him. So, Anna calls The Marrok (leader/commander of of the wolves)and he sends over his second in command/executioner Charles. Charles is also The Marrok's youngest son. Anyway, when he first meets her, his wolf immediately recgonzies her as his mate. Briggs writes this part very well. Charles's wolf knows Anna is his mate but Charles's human part, though very attracted to Anna, has a little 'catching up' to do. Charles and Anna investigate the missing boy, try to find out what happen, etc. Meanwhile, Charles investigates what is up with the Chicago pack because something is very wrong. The pack leader didn't file reports when some of his wolves died or went missing, etc. The story mainly focuses on Anna and Charles' romance/mating. But, the missing boy and other stuff make the story all more suspenseful and exciting. I know, I know, that's alot of stuff to be happening in such a short story but believe me; Patricia Briggs does an amazing job. The story was wonderfully written, the characters were fascinating and insightful. Great story I highly recommend it. Try reading the prequel then the series. The first book of the series, Cry Wolf, picks up exactly where the short story left off. So that was pretty cool. But if you have read the other books first, that's cool too. I did, well because, I didn't find out about the prequel to after...Great story! Enjoy! :))

This short story is worth every penny you'll spend on it. It is the start to a series by the same name and is fantastic. It inertwines with the author's other series, Mercy Thompson, enough to give you a sense of famliarity with what's going on. This is a very good read and if you like werewolves and verious other fantisical creatures, you should read it as soon as possible.

This is a great Story!!!! But what i did not know is that i have already read this story!!! It is in a book of short stories by various authors.. On the Prowl is the name of the book it is already in so if you have read that book, dont buy this one because it is just the same story!!!

This is one of the best series I have read in a long time. Have read the Novella and the two books after it three times and enjoyed them immensely each time. So happy the third book is coming out while I am on vacation so I won,t have to read in pieces.

This is basically the first couple of chapters in Cry Wolf. You will be paying twice for the same chapters. I like the story in Cry Wolf --not too happy to realize I am re-reading the same chapters I just paid $2.99 for.

This was great, especially considering that it is a short story. I have read the all of the Mercy Thompson books, so know a bit about Charles and Anna, but I am just starting their series. It was great to learn how they met and to get much better acquainted with them. I thought they were both wonderful characters, and I enjoyed the storyline. I'm looking forward to seeing where the next books take them. Anna Latham was turned into a Werewolf against her will. She has been treated very poorly by her pack, and she is made to feel like a submissive and worthless wolf. When she reads an alarming news article that she knows connects to her pack, she contacts Bran "The Marrok" Cornick, the leader of the North American werewolves. Bran sends his son, Charles, to investigate the goings on in Anna's Chicago pack. When Charles meets Anna, he is immediately drawn to her, and knows his wolf has selected her as his mate. Charles recognizes Anna as a rare Omega wolf, not a submissive. He is appalled and angered at how she has been treated by her pack, and they begin to get to know and care for one another as they try to unravel the secrets and misdeeds of the pack. I loved this one! Charles and Anna are both great, and I really enjoyed the way this story picked up right as Moon Called ended. I loved the interaction between Charles and Anna, and I appreciated the way that Bran was so accepting of Charles' quick attachment to her. As a fan of the Mercy Thompson Series, I have been looking forward to reading the Alpha & Omega books, and after this short story, I am even more thrilled to read them.
