Fair Game- Patricia Briggs

Written By: Kellie - Jun• 14•12

Synopsis: 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… -Goodreads

Review: Gotta love Patricia Briggs! While I am missing having a new Mercy book this year Anna and Charles make for a really sweet read. Three books in but they are still a very new couple and are still learning the in’s and out’s of their partner, both being more unsure about themselves than they are about the other person.

Inn Fair Game, our two favorite lovebirds (err, lovewolves) are called upon to solve a series of murders happening in the Boston area, and as someone who has been known to watch an episode or two of Criminal Minds I really enjoyed how the story was written. There were a few moments where it actually felt like I was following along with the clues rather than just hanging on for dear life and hoping no characters I like managed to get themselves hurt.

There was also an additional twist that was set up right from the beginning of the book using one of the supporting characters from Boston. I wont go into too much detail but you will find yourself wondering how that element will come into play. Overall, a great mix of mystery solving and a style of magic that only Patricia Briggs can deliver.

My one complaint for this book (which I’m pretty sure is the same as my one complaint for the last book in this series) is that I really want to see more of the important people in Anna and Charles’ lives. They keep getting thrown into different cities with new characters and I’m dying to see more of Bran or Anna reunited with her family. The pack element is part of why I love the Mercy Thompson series (the books these books spin-off of) so much, and I do feel like I’m missing out a little when I’m with Anna and Charles.

Either way, I will obviously be picking up the next book in this series when it comes out, eons from now. Until then, maybe there is a Mercy reread in my future to stop my whining.

    I just recently got into P.B. but I loved Charles/Anna first book so I can’t wait to catch up on this series.
