Waiting on Wednesday #1 – Fair Game by Patricia Briggs

This is my first Waiting on Wednesday post!  It is a meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.  It spotlights the upcoming releases we are all eagerly anticipating so click the button above to learn how to join in on the fun.

Without a doubt, my most eagerly anticipated release is Patricia Briggs’ latest installment in the Alpha & Omega series:


By Patricia Briggs

Release Date: March 6, 2012

Synopsis from Amazon:

They say opposites attract. And in the case of werewolves Anna Latham and Charles Cornick, they mate. The son-and enforcer-of the leader of the North American werewolves, Charles is a dominant alpha. While Anna, an omega, has the rare ability to calm others of her kind.

Now that the werewolves have revealed themselves to humans, they can’t afford any bad publicity. Infractions that could have been overlooked in the past must now be punished, and the strain of doing his father’s dirty work is taking a toll on Charles.

Nevertheless, Charles and Anna are sent to Boston, when the FBI requests the pack’s help on a local serial killer case. They quickly realize that not only the last two victims were werewolves-all of them were. Someone is targeting their kind. And now Anna and Charles have put themselves right in the killer’s sights…


I love this series and have been waiting on pins and needles for Patricia Briggs to publish another book with Charles and Anna.  One of my favorite things about this series, along with the Mercy Thompson books, is the world-building Briggs achieves around the werewolf mythos and culture.  After finishing one of her books, I always feel like I want to be a member of the cool North American pack.

What book are you eagerly anticipating?

    That is one book that I have been waiting for as well I hope we don’t have too long to wait for the next Mercy Thompson book.

      Agreed. I really put the Mercy Thompson and Alpha and Omega series up there as my favorite of all time. Thanks so much for the visit and comment!

  2. Mari - Escape In A Book

    I’ve only read one book by Patricia Briggs and that was the first book in the Mercy Thompson series. I need to get back to it and get to this series too of course 🙂

      It’s a great series, Grace! You should definitely catch up with it. I think I may reread the last one before the new one comes out!
