Mated werewolves Charles Cornick and Anna Latham must discover what could make an entire community disappear — before it’s too late — in this thrilling entry in the #1 New York Times bestselling Alpha and Omega series.
In the wilds of the Northern California mountains, all the inhabitants of a small town have gone missing. It’s as if the people picked up and left everything they owned behind. Fearing something supernatural might be going on, the FBI taps a source they’ve consulted in the past: the werewolves Charles Cornick and Anna Latham. But Charles and Anna soon find a deserted town is the least of the mysteries they face.
Death sings in the forest, and when it calls, Charles and Anna must answer. Something has awakened in the heart of the California mountains, something old and dangerous — and it has met werewolves before.
It wasn’t that long ago that I would have started this review off by saying that while I love Patricia Briggs and her Mercy Thompson series, I wasn’t a huge fan of the Alpha and Omega series because it leaned more towards paranormal romance than urban fantasy. I don’t think I can claim that anymore as I’m as excited for each new Alpha and Omega release as I am for every new Mercy Thompson book. I honestly can’t say when I started loving these books as much as the Mercy Thompson books but I have. I found Wild Sign by Patricia Briggs to be an absolutely fantastic book that I was unable to stop reading once I had picked it up and started.
I honestly don’t know how long this review will be even as I’m typing it because I don’t know how much I can talk about without spoiling major plot points for this book and series as well as the Mercy Thompson Books at all. Want to know more about how Bran met Leah and why his wolf picked her as his mate? Or have you been dying to know more information about a certain one-legged werewolf and why he can’t remember any of his past? Then you definitely need to read this book. Wild Sign was such a great book and I can’t help but feel that it is going to have a much larger impact on the Mercy Thompson books than the previous books in the Alpha and Omega series generally have.
I won’t say any more than I have out of fear of spoiling the book for anyone who hasn’t read it yet. All I will say is that if you’re a fan of the Alpha and Omega series, the Mercy Thompson series, or just urban fantasy in general you will love this book. I would gladly recommend it to anyone looking for something new to read! Though I would highly recommend that you at least read the previous books in the Alpha and Omega series before you read Wild Sign (And probably the Mercy Thompson books as well).
While I’m looking forward to the new Mercy Thompson book next year, I think this may be the first time that I’m a bit bummed that it won’t be another Alpha and Omega book! While I’m planning an epic reread of both series, I’m already dying to know what happens next to Anna and Charles and what kind of impact Wild Sign’s events will have on Mercy and her friends.
I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
