Mated to werewolf Charles Cornick, the son -and enforcer -of the leader of the North American werewolves, Anna Latham now knows how dangerous being a werewolf is, especially when a werewolf opposes Charles and his father is struck down. Charles's reputation makes him the prime suspect, and the penalty for the crime is execution. Now Anna and Charles must combine their talents to hunt down the real killer -or Charles will take the fall.
Diving into Patricia Brigg’s world filled with werewolves, vampires, fae and more made for a great read. It was good to return to Anna and Charles’s world again after reading their first story in Cry Wolf. With this second book they find themselves headed of to Seattle for a huge werewolf meeting that quickly and efficiently got way out of hand. Which led to the great plot where I was flipping pages to see if Anna and Charles would be able to settle things before they paid with their lives. I liked how detailed Ms. Briggs was in developing the characters and letting me see deep into werewolf pact structure. There wasn’t that much romance between Charles and Anna but that was understandable with everything they had to deal with. The story was filled with action and suspense that had me wondering every other minute who the real villain was and I didn’t get it until the very end. I also enjoyed how Ms.Briggs incorporated other supernatural’s and legends into the story as well, expanding her already detailed world. Even though there wasn’t enough romance for my liking the scenes that were there were intense and real showcasing the realness of Anna and Charles’s characters and their love. I think was I really enjoyed about this story was it’s characters and how they interacted with each other and the things placed before them. Between the main characters and the secondary characters, they all stood out and every single one of them was important to the story which made that much more enjoyable. I recommend reading the first book Cry Wolf before reading this one so that you can fully understand the wonderful world that Briggs created.
