Anna never knew werewolves existed, until the night she survived a violent attack… and became one herself. After three years at the bottom of the pack, she’d learned to keep her head down and never, ever trust dominant males. Then Charles Cornick, the enforcer- and son- of the leader of the North American werewolves, came into her life.

Charles insists that not only is Anna his mate, but she is also a rare and valued Omega wolf. And it is Anna’s inner strength and calming presence that will prove invaluable as she and Charles go on the hunt in search of a rogue werewolf- a creature bound in magic so dark that it could threaten all of the pack.


Cry wolf picks up right where Alpha & Omega ends. Anna is heading home with Charles and is about to embark on a whole new world. She was abused and left ignorant by her previous pack. After 3 years of being a werewolf she’s not only learning about what it means to be part of a pack but also what it means to be mated. However, she doesn’t get much time to settle in to her new surroundings. There is a rogue werewolf on the loose and Charles and Anna have been sent out to take care of it.

This book deals a little bit about the difficulty with their wolves being mated while their human halves try to catch up. They don’t start out in love and with the way Anna was treated previously, she is still very skittish. However, with the task at hand to find the rogue in the woods they start to come together and Anna continues to feel more comfortable with Charles. The chemistry between these two may not be explosive but the tenderness that Charles shows for her and the persistence that Anna has to recover from her fears, really made me fall in love with these two. Briggs has a wonderful way of not only creating her world but she puts so much depth in her characters that you feel like they are real.

“When a man is on the verge of passing out from pain, it seemed wrong to notice how beautiful he was.”
