A very solid second book in a series. There is more plot, more character development, and more world building in this book. We get to move out of the small town that Anna and Charles live in to explore pack relations in Seattle. There are Fae, crazy other wolves, and different witches. Briggs does so much with this book. Anna and Charles are still getting to know each other but they are invested in being together. I really liked their interactions in this book. I did guess who the villain was early on but that did not ruin it for me and I did not guess all the villains or what they would do. I am very curious about where Briggs is going to take these characters next.

I give this book a Four out of Five stars.

Super neat story! It amazes me that every time I read a Patricia Briggs PNR, I think I have the mystery aspect figured out, but I'm ALWAYS wrong! She's exceptional at using red herrings and subtle details to keep her readers guessing. I really loved the whodunnit aspect of this book.

Her use of Seattle landmarks gave the feeling of being right there with the characters. I got a kick out of the Freemont Troll and had to go searching for a picture:

There was so much to like about this book! It was interesting to catch a glimpse into Charles' vulnerability and I like Anna more and more with each book. She's finding her footing and showing the world how courageous she really is. They are working out the kinks of their "bond," which brings a special emotional intimacy to the romance. This closeness also adds a unique element to the action/adventure scenes. The ending was really cool, but without spoiling it I can't say much more. I hope this series will be around for a long time!

Started it last night and read half of it before going to sleep. Inhaled the rest today. Fast moving story. Anna is learning more about being an Omega and learning how to be comfortable with being a werewolf. She's also learning how to trust Charles more. Looking forward to the next book!

Because its been awhile, and I think there's another coming out soon, I reread to refresh my memory. Now Tom and Moira's short story makes sense in how it fits in this world. ( )

A fast paced, impeccably written plot. There is a mystery of who is behind the murders of a mate and Alphas. In this book we get to learn more of what the Alpha and Omegas abilities are. Anna is anything but week and battered. Charles is sent to Seattle instead of his father, bringing his new mate, Anna – an extremely rare Omega wolf. With a powerful Gray Lord fae and a wacky were that thinks he is a noble night of the round table ? Highly recommended series. ( )

4 stars for the story and 4 stars for the audio narration. I really liked. ( )

I'm not going to spend a lot of column space on [Hunting Ground]. It's more to let you know that the second "Alpha and Omega" novel is just as strong a contender as any of Briggs's previous Urban Fantasy books.

Book description
Mated to werewolf Charles Cornick, the son—and enforcer—of the leader of the North American werewolves, Anna Latham now knows how dangerous being a werewolf is, especially when a werewolf who opposes Charles and his father is struck down. Charles’s reputation makes him the prime suspect, and the penalty for the crime is execution. Now Anna and Charles must combine their talents to hunt down the real killer—or Charles will take the fall.

The Marrok has decided it is time for the werewolves to 'come out' as the fey already have. Alphas from Europe come to Seattle to discuss the issue, but deaths occur which need to be solved and righted.
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

"Anna Latham didn't know how complicated life could be until she became a werewolf. And until she was mated to Charles Cornick, the son--and enforcer--of Bran, the leader of the North American werewolves, she didn't know how dangerous it could be, either... Anna and Charles have just been enlisted to attend a summit to present Bran's controversial proposition: that the wolves should finally reveal themselves to humans. But the most feared Alpha in Europe is dead set against the plan--and it seems like someone else might be, too. When Anna is attacked by vampires using pack magic, the kind of power only werewolves should be able to draw on, Charles and Anna must combine their talents to hunt down whoever is behind it all--or risk losing everything..."--p. [4] of cover.… (more)
