The amazon.com product description:
Patricia Briggs, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Mercy Thompson novels, "always enchants her readers." (Lynn Viehl, New York Times bestselling author) Now her Alpha and Omega series-set in a world of shifting shapes, loyalty, and passion- brings werewolves out of the darkness and into a society where fear and prejudice could make the hunters prey...This latest book in the Alpha and Omega series sucks you right in from page one. Following on from Cry Wolf and Hunting Ground, it's intriguing to see how Anna and Charles are getting on, not to mention how things are going with the Werewolves' entry into public life.
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...
Unlike the previous two books in this spin-off from the Mercy Thompson series though, Fair Game was released in hardcover - and there's no new Mercy Thompson novel waiting that I'm aware of. Still, this story definitely fits my hardcover criterion. Captivating and thrilling, I found that I couldn't put it down easily. And what a twist at the end...
That's definitely something that's going to affect the next book in either series, and personally I can't wait to see what's going to happen.
As with any series though, despite how much I recommend this book, I also suggest starting with the first book. In this case, that's either Moon Called in the Mercy Thompson series or Cry Wolf from this series. If you're a fan of urban fantasy or paranormal romance and you haven't tried either of these series, you should. They've honestly become two of my favourites.
