Natalie recommends "Cry Wolf"

I recently gave this book series a try earlier in 2018.  We had recently gotten the newest book in the series, known as the Alpha and Omega ser, Burn Bright.  I had to use the MeL system since we didn't have the copy of this particular title up until recently and I read it alongside Patricia Briggs' other series, the Mercy Thompson series, which ties into and coincides with this series.  Both series are really good, but I do like this one a little more.

It has to do with the main character, Anna, who up until recently didn't know that werewolves, vampires, and the like existed.  That is, until she is bitten by a werewolf and becomes one herself.  She was in a pack that wasn't all too kind until she meets Charles Cornick, the enforcer and son to the alpha of the Native American pack.  She joins this pack and is the mate of Charles.  Anna also discovers that she is considered a rare and valuable Omega.  This first installment sees her coming into her own in her new surroundings and aids in finding a rouge werewolf that could really shake things up for this pack if not dealt with.

This is an urban fantasy and is an Adult Fiction.  It's also worth mentioning that there is a short story that sets up this series titled "Alpha and Omega" which can be found in Shifting Shadows, a collection of Patrica Briggs' short stories in this universe, and is at South and can be held.

I recommend this since it is a unique series and I found it while looking for a book based around werewolf.  I am also current reading through the Alpha and Omega series for a second time.   And if you'd like, feel free to give the Mercy Thompson series a try.  They both can be read separately and as their own story, but they do reference each other just a little bit, especially since the love interest in the Mercy Thompson series is a member of Charles pack.
