Book Review: Fair Game

They say opposites attract. And in the case of werewolves Anna Latham and Charles Cornick, they mate. The son-and enforcer-of the leader of the North American werewolves, Charles is a dominant alpha. While Anna, an omega, has the rare ability to calm others of her kind.

Now that the werewolves have revealed themselves to humans, they can't afford any bad publicity. Infractions that could have been overlooked in the past must now be punished, and the strain of doing his father's dirty work is taking a toll on Charles.

Nevertheless, Charles and Anna are sent to Boston, when the FBI requests the pack's help on a local serial killer case. They quickly realize that not only the last two victims were werewolves-all of them were. Someone is targeting their kind. And now Anna and Charles have put themselves right in the killer's sights..

Wow!  I have been a fan of Patricia Briggs since her very first book and I do have to say that FAIR GAME has to be her best book yet.  And with such a stunning ending, I am already impatient for the next book in this series.

I think what really made this book so spectacular to me was the characters.  Charles is usually the tough guy but he was really dealing with a lot of issues in this book.  One that could have severe consequences on his relationship with Anna.  Seeing him so vulnerable (at least in his thoughts) really was an eye opener about this strong man.   And Anna is a character that I have always loved from the get-go.

There were also some characters introduced that I wouldn't mind seeing in other books such as Lucas, the Boston Alpha, and the FBI agent Leslie Fisher who should be appointed to work with the werewolves as needed.  There was also an interesting fae character that you will learn more of when you read the book.

This book blew me away enough that even though I do run across one glaring content error I would still have to say that it is the best book I have read in 2012.

I rate this book a 5.
