Burn Bright – Patricia Briggs




Patricia Briggs is one of the best urban fantasy authors out there. Her books are captivating, and engrossing from beginning to end. Cry Wolf (Alpha & Omega #1), was actually the first book I ever read by Patricia Briggs, and I loved it immediately. So getting back into the Alpha and Omega series after three years left me giddy and excited.

The relationship between a pack enforcer and an omega has always been fascinating to me. On top of that I love Charles’s Native American heritage. As the son of a witch and the packs Alpha, plus being the pack’s enforcer he is quite alluring. A perfect example for a very protective, big bad wolf. Anna, a truly appealing and endearing character, is a pure delight. Her backstory is heart-breaking, but her spine of steel is evident in everything she does. She is tough when needed, sensitive, empathetic, and seeing her interact with Charles has been pleasure ever since the first book was published in 2008.

The author usually writes an Alpha & Omega book every two years with two Mercy Thompson novels in between. Since both of her series play in the same world, and are connected, it feels to me like I’m reading one long entire series, from two different angles. Which is FABULOUS!!!

Burn Bright continued almost exactly where Silence Fallen ended. Bran Cornick, the alpha of all North American werwolf packs, and Charles’s father, was absent when Charles and Anna received a distress call about one of the wildlings, and from there on the story took off.

Charles and Anna were as strong and steady as ever, their relationship was an unadulterated joy. I loved that Anna was front and centre, using her Omega power, with noticeable effect. It was even better when Anna and Charles worked hand in hand. Their compatibility was wonderful and heart-warming.

It’s always interesting when a natural alpha, but not necessarily the leader is pushed into a leading roll. The sudden change of status quo, the careful handling of pack hierarchy, and the importance of not stepping on too many toes – was a source of delightful tension.

Even though the big story arc seems to continue, with many new questions to be answered, it’s exciting to see how far the enemy will take it. It all points towards a longer story arc, a nemesis that will persist, and maybe even give Mercy a headache or two.

To sum it up, this book was very much a HIT. I enjoyed it from beginning to end, and was able to spend an entire day on the sofa, bundled up, watching the rain outside and reading a Patricia Briggs novel. That pretty much sums up an awesome day if you ask me.

Burn Bright – Patricia Briggs

Burn Bright - Patricia BriggsThey are the wild and the broken. The werewolves too damaged to live safely among their own kind. For their own good, they have been exiled to the outskirts of Aspen Creek, Montana. Close enough to the Marrok’s pack to have its support; far enough away to not cause any harm.

With their Alpha out of the country, Charles and Anna are on call when an SOS comes in from the fae mate of one such wildling. Heading into the mountainous wilderness, they interrupt the abduction of the wolf–but can’t stop blood from being shed. Now Charles and Anna must use their skills–his as enforcer, hers as peacemaker–to track down the attackers, reopening a painful chapter in the past that springs from the darkest magic of the witchborn…
