Book Review: Patricia Briggs – Alpha and Omega

Alpha and Omega
Published: August 2007
The werewolf Anna finds a new sense of self when the son of the werewolf king comes to town to quell unrest in the Chicago pack—and inspires a power in Anna she’s never felt before.

My writer’s group is undertaking a project together. We are each writing a romance novella to contribute to an anthology due for completion in June 2020 (release date to be confirmed). As part of my preparation and to familiarise myself with what is achievable with such a short word count, I reread some old favorites and in the process rediscovered one of my favorite authors.

Patricia Briggs’ Alpha and Omega novella, (first published in an anthology called On the Prowl) is beautifully written. I’m not necessarily talking about sentence structure and prose. I’m talking about the characters. Anna and Charles need each other. Their emotional wounds demand that they need each other, but like all good romances, the couple will need to overcome some serious barriers to achieve their happy ever after.

This novella gives you just a taste of the romance that could grow between Anna and Charles. It left me hoping for their future and wanting to read the next installment. If my romance novella is even half as good this story, I will be more than satisfied.
