Burn Bright (Alpha & Omega #5) Reviews
When you are following characters through the course of several books and you are emotionally invested in their fate, there is a reasonable expectation, even wish for the author to has some end game for them planned and a satisfying conclusion fleshed out, right? I am like this with Kate Daniels and Dresden. I want them to end on a good note.
But this isn't the case for me when it comes to Patty Briggs.
I want her to keep writing books in her shared universe as long as she has stories to tell; I w ...more
"I know who the traitor is..."
Patricia Briggs has done it again! I cling to every sentence as she fleshes out secondary characters, I am dying for them to have books of their own.
With Briggs you never lack for action or keeps-you-guessing plot. There’s a long term traitor in the pack, let the hunt begin!
I docked one star for all the damn Mercy Mercy Mercy at the beginning of the book. I’m so over Mercy.
Really happy with the Leah/Bran turn of events. Give me more!
There are some great ideas in this book.
There are some great characters in this book.
Unfortunately they take a back seat to Charles and Anna.
Don't get me wrong, I like Charles and Anna. They're great characters. I've enjoyed their story. But maybe it's time to move on. Explore some different characters.
If this book centred on Leah, Bran's wife / mate and the wildlings, I'm pretty sure it would have been a 5 Star book.
I don’t read a lot of urban fantasy, but I do read everything that Patricia Briggs writes. After I read the first book in the Alpha and Omega series I was hooked, and Patricia Briggs became one of my favorite authors. Each of her books are a treat to read and enjoy. As soon as a new book comes out I make sure that the kids are in bed and I have no plans for the next day. Because I know I will be up all night until I read that last page…
The Alpha and Omega series is about two werewolves (a mated ...more
On sale now, as of March 6, 2018! A solid and enthusiastic four stars. Full review first posted on Fantasy Literature.
Burn Bright is the fifth and latest novel in Patricia Briggs’ ALPHA AND OMEGA urban fantasy series … actually, it’s more mountainous wilderness fantasy, but it does involve werewolves and witches living amongst humans. Burn Bright, though it has different main characters, also intertwines nicely with the main MERCY THOMPSON series.
Bran, the grand-Alpha or Marrok of most of the we ...more
Charles and Anna are left as heads of the pack while Bran is off on a vacation to Africa, without this mate. Yeh it something is weird, but I'll not tell you what. So Charles if left with his mate and Leah. with all their issues and snipping at each other. Talk about a rock and a hard place, ouch. I know you're thinking poor Charles, hah ! those were the easy times. There are some wolves who live on the edge, the windings, bare sane if at all, there are under the pack protection, aka his. One ve ...more
Very early in the book there is a brief conversation between Charles and Anna, that upset some of my goodreads friends quite a bit. It might cause them to stop reading this series and also Mercy Thompson. I was surprised when I read that conversation, mulled it over a little, but was not massively perturbed by it. It might or might not be a plot bunny for later books, we shall see.
Unfortunately the comment thread of that review had spoiled me by revealing who the traitor in this story is. That ...more
Charles and Anna are holding down the fort in Aspen Creek, while Bran, the Marrok is off on vacation. The story takes off quickly when one of the “wildling’s” (old wolves that are no longer safe to associate around Pack on a regular basis) mate calls for help. Anna and Charles go to investigate and find a lot more than they bargained for. There’s a lethal threat, assisted by a traitor in the Pack, and Anna and Charles must figure out if the traitor is one of the “wildlings”, or a closer Pack mem ...more
