Blurb: Mated werewolves Charles Cornick and Anna Latham must discover what could make an entire community disappear — before it’s too late — in this thrilling entry in the #1 New York Times bestselling Alpha and Omega series.
In the wilds of the Northern California mountains, all the inhabitants of a small town have gone missing. It’s as if the people picked up and left everything they owned behind. Fearing something supernatural might be going on, the FBI taps a source they’ve consulted in the past: the werewolves Charles Cornick and Anna Latham. But Charles and Anna soon find a deserted town is the least of the mysteries they face.
Death sings in the forest, and when it calls, Charles and Anna must answer. Something has awakened in the heart of the California mountains, something old and dangerous — and it has met werewolves before.
This is what top notch writing looks like in PNR. I am in the minority but I love Charles and Anna more than Mercy and Adam. Okay because I want Mercy with Stefan but that’s a whole other conversation.
Charles and Anna continue to grow stronger as a pair. This book’s mystery villain still didn’t take away from the main players. The flashback to Justin and Isabelle was rough. I had forgotten how much Anna had to live through in that pack from hell in Chicago. Brother Wolf was not here for any of that and I loved how him and Charles rallied around their Anna.
Bran: The Marrok. I don’t know if he is a good guy or bad guy, but he is definitely shady. I have hated Leah for many books, but part of what’s wrong with her is Bran. I should have known because behind every crazy wife, is some shady ass husband who broke her, and I think Bran broke Leah and hadn’t begun making amends until the end of this book.
I look forward to seeing how Bran is going to fix this. I will trust this author to bring it home.
