If there is one author that can always distract me from life when I need it most, it’s Briggs. We recently lost one of our twin nieces the day she was born. It’s definitely not something that a person can describe but I can tell you just how thankful I was to have this book laying around the house this past weekend. It was a bit of sunshine on some very cloudy days.
This edition to the Alpha & Omega series was just timely for me. Charles and Anna vacation away to Arizona to spend some time together but also visit one of Charles’ few friends who is dying. Of course, there is some nasty fae causing havoc in the area, stealing children. Charles and Anna will abide no one hurting children. (See? Timely.)
Despite all of that, I can see how this isn’t the strongest edition to the series and may bore people who are not into horses. (The side story is that they are also there to buy Anna a horse and Charles friend breeds Arabians.) The author really pushes their horse knowledge into this book but I enjoy horses so I had zero issues with this.
Anna is also trying to convince Charles to have children. Werewolves cannot give birth so she’s working every possible angle around that to convince him that it would be okay. Charles has lots of reservations, as an old wolf with many enemies, he’s incredibly wary. I hope the author continues with this line in their story as I think it’s a different direction than some of her other novels and I would love to see where it goes.
