Patricia Briggs graduated from Montana State University with degrees in history and German. She worked for a while as a substitute teacher but now writes full time. Patricia Briggs lives in the Pacific Northwest.
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.
