Dead Heat by Patricia Briggs
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Patricia Briggs can grab a reader and pull them into her world completely. The story telling and world building are top notch.
And she can really elicit emotion from a reader. Wow. This was one I couldn't put down until the book was done, and then I wanted more.
I love diving deeper into Charles's background and seeing the man underneath the enforcer, underneath the Alpha wolf that has to keep it all together and keep everyone else in line. Anna softens his rough edges but we get to see more of Charles as she does, glimpse his history and see the whole picture.
In Dead Heat Anna and Charles are visiting an old friend of his because Charles wishes to buy Anna a horse. The trip starts out as a personal vacation, an escape from their normal day to day world but they are quickly sucked into a dangerous mystery that touches Charles personally when someone within his circle of friends and family is attacked. They start investigating on their own and end up helping the FBI and local law agencies. They find out the Fae are up to something and it is not good at all.
Charles is such a deep character and we see so much character development for both he and Anna throughout these stories. Not only does the world building become more complex but the characters become so real, so deep.
I LOVE both this series and the Mercy Thompson series, enjoying the multiple views of this world Briggs has built. But I really love the romance and the character building that goes on in the Alpha and Omega series.
I can't wait for more books featuring Charles and Anna.
