Review: Burn Bright

 

THE #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

In her bestselling Alpha and Omega series, Patricia Briggs “spins tales of werewolves, coyote shifters, and magic and, my, does she do it well” (USATODAY.com). Now mated werewolves Charles Cornick and Anna Latham face a threat like no other–one that lurks too close to home…

They are the wild and the broken. The werewolves too damaged to live safely among their own kind. For their own good, they have been exiled to the outskirts of Aspen Creek, Montana. Close enough to the Marrok’s pack to have its support; far enough away to not cause any harm.

With their Alpha out of the country, Charles and Anna are on call when an SOS comes in from the fae mate of one such wildling. Heading into the mountainous wilderness, they interrupt the abduction of the wolf–but can’t stop blood from being shed. Now Charles and Anna must use their skills–his as enforcer, hers as peacemaker–to track down the attackers, reopening a painful chapter in the past that springs from the darkest magic of the witchborn…

At long last, we finally have a brand new installment to the Alpha & Omega series!

Personally, it was impossible to put down Burn Bright once I got it.

Now a bit of warning, Burn Bright takes place after the events in Silence Fallen. That is why Bran, the Marrok of the werewolf packs in North America is in Europe to deal with a matter that occurred in Silence Fallen. Once the matter is resolved, Bran decides to visit his son Samuel instead of returning to Aspen Creek. So while he is gone, Charles left in charge of the pack until his return. Due to that, Charles and Anna are forced to stay in Bran and Leah’s house which is a bit difficult since Leah is there as well. Soon they receive a call from the mate of one of the wildings who are a group of the unstable and older werewolves who are under Bran’s protection. Since Bran is gone, its up to Charles to help the wildings instead. However, Charles and Anna soon discover that someone is spying on the wildlings and trying to kidnap them. Now the question is who’s behind these kidnappings and who is the traitor among the wildings or Bran’s pack that is working with the kidnappers.

Overall, Burn Bright was another great installment. Glad we finally got to learn more about the wildings. The mystery was another wonderful element that I enjoyed trying to solve it alongside the characters. Not to mention that there were many unexpected twists and turns that I did not expect. Especially with one particular character that I’m sure everybody has hated since they have heard about her. I also enjoyed learning more about Mercy’s upbringing. We just know bits of her life with Bran’s pack and Burn Bright gave us more information about her time there so that was a treat. The Mercy Thompson series may be my favorite out of all of Patricia Briggs written series but the Alpha and Omega series will always come out second place wince its set in the same wonderful world.
