"Once in a while there comes a book that sweeps you off your feet, a book you fall in love with so completely that it is hard to do justice to that love in a review. Cry Wolf made me feel that way."--Dear Author
"Fans of the vampire series by Charlaine Harris and Mary Jane Davidson will also enjoy Briggs' fantasy adventures."--Booklist More Praise for the Alpha and Omega Novels "A terrific saga."--Midwest Book Review "Briggs has created such a detailed and well thought out world that I am helpless to resist."--Fiction Vixen "[Briggs] spins tales of werewolves, coyote shifters and magic and, my, does she do it well...If you like action, violence, romance and, of course, werewolves, then I urge you to pick up this series."--USATODAY.com "Interesting, fast-paced urban fantasy...[An] imaginative writer who always leaves fans anxiously waiting for the next tale."--Monsters and Critics "Patricia Briggs is amazing...Her Alpha and Omega novels are fantastic."--Fresh Fiction
Briggs's Mercy Thompson urban fantasy series has its fans, with her novel Cry Wolf hitting the New York Times bestseller list a few years back. But based on this poorly conceived graphic novel adaptation, it's hard to see why. Set in a small Montana town that's secretly run by a powerful clan of werewolves, the drama rotates around the arrival of Anna, a woman who was turned into a werewolf by the Chicago clan and who seems to be something called an "Omega." Why her being an Omega is important is kept secret, but wouldn't you know there's an Alpha around to balance things out? There is some weakly flickering romance between Anna and her were soul mate Charles-son of the clan leader-and a light mystery involving some mysterious attacks on humans, but nothing that would keep readers coming back for volume two. The blocky artwork will help ensure that the only people much interested will be fans of the (assumedly more engaging) print novels. (Oct.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
