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...
Fair Game is the latest novel in Patricia Briggs’s Alpha Omega series. Anna and Charles have been sent to Boston to become part of a team searching for a serial killer. The serial killer seems to be targeting werewolves and Bran sees this as the opportunity for them to get some good press. Charles investigative and alpha-ness will help them find the killer, while Anna will act as the go between and PR person to keep Charles from totally alienating everyone.
This book just didn’t really “connect” for me. I’ve read other “odd” couples before, but for some reason I just don’t get Anna and Charles. I’ve got this impression of Anna as just really young for someone as old as Charles. I even have a hard time picturing her as a werewolf, she just seems too “girlish”. Not that a werewolf can’t be a girl, just I see them as strong “women”, and having an FBI agent describe her as looking sixteen just sort of stuck that image in my head.
I found the book seemed really short, it took me awhile to read it, but I think that is because I had a hard time getting into it. It would definitely be one of those filler books you read when you don’t want to get into deep emotions.
