From his very first appearance in the book, I was hooked! Love, love, LOVE him! We see Bran in the MT series but in this series, we get a closer look inside the mind of the Marrok. I would love to read more about his relationship with Leah even though she is such a bitch to everyone.
View all 45 comments. I'm still grumpy about the fact that you need to go dig up a Briggs novella, Alpha and Omega , in a separately published book, On the Prowl , to read the pretty much necessary first part of this story. I would be even grumpier if my library hadn't happened to have a copy of On the Prowl.
I also got a little impatient with Anna, our main character and an "Omega werewolf," although you need to cut her some slack because of the events in the Alpha and Omega novella. But the overall story 3. But the overall storyline, with ancient, bitter events coming back to haunt our characters, was really very good.
Review to come. View all 7 comments. Omega wolves are to be cherished and protected above all others because they keep the pack sane. Apparently though her last pack didn't get the memo. Anna was changed against her will, was beaten and passed around the pack at the orders of her previous Alpha.
Three years later came her salvation, a salvation named Charles. Now after what was done to her it is logical that Anna was a bit skitish during the book. This isn't to say that the girl doesn't have a backbone, something that becomes obvious every time someone corners hers and as she slowly comes to the realization that no one is going to hurt her at her new home. Charles Charles is a very, very dominant wolf even though his father is the Alpha of his pack. When he realizes how Anna has been treated every protective instinct in him goes wild.
If you combine this to the fact that his wolf recognizes her as his mate you get an overly protective and overly possessive wolf. I like Charles. He is a dominant but he doesn't try to assert his dominance over Anna.
He is protective of those he loves even when they can take care of themselves , he is loyal and he doesn't show any bitterness over the fact that he follows his father and has become his "pet assassin". I also enjoy the fact that for a change in a shifter book the male is happy to have found his mate.
He wants Anna, no fighting, no resisting. Bran I love Bran. The Marrok seems a bit Jaded in this book. I think Bran brings a little tragedy to the story.
I think he is kind of an idiot at how he is handling his "marriage" issues though. On that account I think Bran's at fault. Samuel Another sad spot in the overall story.
I want to know if and how he becomes happy. Asil And here we come to the side story. Asil is a wolf who is over a thousand years old. Asil has some issues as well.
I found his story heart-breaking and maybe even a bit more interesting than Anna's. I loved Asil. Sage Sage is a wolf in the pack. We don't see much of her but I do hope she will end up with Asil.
Walter Walter was a newly turned wolf. He was turned against his will and lived in the mountain for months before Anna and Charles found him without knowing exactly what he had become. He was a good man who lived on the mountain alone to save others from his flashbacks to the Vietnam war. The story was nice.

More sweet than full of action although it did have some of this as well. Although reading about the people you might think the book was overly dramatic I have to say it wasn't. It was nice to see how Anna and Charles develop during the story, how Anna starts to trust people again, how Bran and Asil go on with their lives after their tragedies. I won't tell you more, read the book. It is worth it. View all 17 comments. Reviewed by: Rabid Reads. Any werewolf nut worth their salt should be up to date on all things Patricia Briggs.
Well, this is me fixing it, ok? It was howling good! The reasons behind Asil wanting Bran to kill him are now crystal clear, and I loved that Anna was able to bring him some much needed peace. And, hanging with the Marrok is always a pleasure, even when he goes Beowulf. Exploring what makes her character tick was a real delight, and I enjoyed learning about her omega traits.
The third person POV certainly helped on both accounts, and he definitely added an extra layer of enjoyment to my listening experience. View all 10 comments.

Jan 16, Dija rated it really liked it Recommends it for: Fans of Mercy Thompson and Kate Daniels. But you need to know this about me because—if you want to be my mate—I won't be like Leo. I won't let you sleep around with anyone else. I won't be forced either. I've had enough. If that makes me a dog in the manger, so be it. But if I am yours, then you damned well are going to be mine.
I can't remember the last time I was so engrossed in a UF, nor the l "I'm not threatening to kill myself. I can't remember the last time I was so engrossed in a UF, nor the last time I fell in love with a series and its characters this fast.
Another five and I was completely head over heals for Charles. Loving Charles was expected, but I was surprised at how much I came to care for Anna. I don't usually like her type, but Briggs depicted her character so well, I couldn't help but adore her. I love the relationship between Anna and Charles. They're absolutely perfect together. I'm extremely excited about finding out what adventures these two will have next and how they'll develop as individuals as well as a couple.

It wasn't Mercy Thompson, that's for sure. The suspense was never really there for me since I knew already, from the Mercy series, that Bran and Charles would be alive in the end.
Anna was rescued by Charles a tall, handsome, half- American Indian. He saved her from a brutalizing Alpha wolf in Chicago, who had kept her captive for 3 years. Injured, but in love, he brings Anna to Montana to be his mate. After arriving in Montana, it is discov It was okay. After arriving in Montana, it is discovered that there is a crazy werewolf out causing trouble in the woods. Bran, the local Alpha, sends his injured son Charles to solve the case. Of course, he brings along his peace giving Omega sweetie, Anna.
There was a stronger romance vibe to this book, than in the Mercy books. The plot seemed more contrived.
Make it clear that Anna and Charles are soul mates. Cue love scene. Have the lovers trudge through the snow in pursuit of the rogue wolf who is killing people in the wildernees of Montana. Make the Alpha Charles wolf vulnerable and soft by keeping him injured, from delayed healing of silver bullet injuries, for the entire book.
Have a nasty, black witch, who is seemingly unstoppable appear out of nowhere. And, wa ha ha, cackle, cackle, discover that she is behind the rogue wolf in her attempt to find Asil, another ancient wolf with a secret past. It was just like a dance: What did I like best?
There was a preview of the next Mercy Thompson book, due in , at the end of this one. View all 8 comments. Jun 03, Kat Kennedy rated it liked it. I don't know how popular completos is in America, only that nobody has heard of it here in Australia except those of us who are tight with the ever-growing Chile population. Basically, Completos is madness in a bun.
It's a hotdog with guacamole, tomato, mayonnaise, mustard and sauerkraut. See what I mean?
But a good, delicious kind of madness. Well, Cry Wolf is kind of like Completos only not quite as awesome.
It's a good book, enjoyable, interesting, nice I don't know how popular completos is in America, only that nobody has heard of it here in Australia except those of us who are tight with the ever-growing Chile population.
It's a good book, enjoyable, interesting, nicely written with good pacing. It's just weird. It doesn't seem like it should work together. Does the Sauerkraut romance go with the guacamole mystery and the diced tomato action? Mostly, it does. I can't say I loved it because I found Anna's personality shifts to be inconsistent and frustrating and since the romance wasn't exactly steaming I just took the book for what it was.
A good book with elements of romance and paranormal. View 1 comment. Aug 24, AH rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Werewolf lovers. Otherwise, it will feel like three chapters are missing at the beginning of the book. Briggs not only gives us original werewolf lore but she also puts the reader inside their minds.
We get a glimpse of the constant battle for control over the animal instincts of the wolf. The author also weaves in some Native American magic into her wolf lore. The novel is set in Montana and the majestic wilderness of the Cabinet Mountains, a great playground for the werewolves. Charles is part Native American, part werewolf. He is magical, sexy, and deadly.
Anna is a special type of wolf-- an Omega, a type of wolf that can calm other wolves. The Omega does not have to obey the Alpha wolf. Omegas are extremely rare and special. Anna is damaged goods. Forced to become a werewolf against her wishes, she was subjected to horrifying abuse. Anna is a survivor and she proves to be brave, strong, and resourceful despite her hardships. Anna is also a very likable character. Charles and Anna are perfect for each other.
The inner wolves chose each other as mates before their human selves were aware. The secondary characters make this story come to life. Asil is an old wolf, and he is very mysterious. I love how his past is slowly revealed. Bran is a multi-dimensional character. He is the head of all the wolves and is very powerful, though at first glance, he does not seem to be so authoritarian. Bran chose to be in a loveless relationship because he did not want to lose another love again.
I really wish Bran would get his own book. I hope to get to the next book Hunting Ground soon. View all 28 comments. Jan 25, Choko rated it really liked it Shelves: A very pleasant read in the world of Mercy Thompson. While I was reading this book it actually reminded me of the native American storytelling meets around the fire I used to go to with friends in the Summers It had the feel and even the melody of those stories, which was exactly what the author meant to express, I am guessing It starts with Anna from the horrible Chicago pack moving to the mountains of Montana to live with her potential mate, the very alpha male Charles.
There are adjustments to be made, a new pack to get acclimated to, and to learn about each other most of all. A rogue Wolf is hurting falks in the mountains and the pack's alpha, Charles dad, sends him and Anna to deal with it. While looking for the elusive lone wolf they stumble upon something malevolent and cunning which poses a serious threat to all wolfs in the aeria and possibly in North America.
Bad guys do some damage, good guys survive, mostly It is an example of an earlier style of writing an UF novel, which is more linear and compact than the more aggressive style the genre has gone towards in the last 5 years, but it is a good read. I recommend it to all UF fans and especially those who can do with less violence and slower character development. Have fun reading: My second helping of this wonderful book. I still love it. Indeed, it is my favorite urban fantasy series involving werewolves.
Werewolves tackle the wicked wicked witch. Bloodlust and madness is about to descend on the icy mountains of Montana. An age-old berserker rage threatens to rip the world apart, My second helping of this wonderful book. An age-old berserker rage threatens to rip the world apart, starting with the unsuspecting town of Aspen Creek.
Some readers might not like the head hopping, but I was fine with it. A Companion Novella to Cry Wolf. In the prequel, set in Chicago, Anna meets Charles and moves to his home in Montana. It's good! Of all the books I have read by Briggs, this plot is quite possibly the best. It makes complete sense. The characters add up, too except Anna psychologically recovers from the abuse in Chicago too quickly, but that is explained away as a function of her inner wolf, so okay. A few secondary characters are quite sympathetic, namely Walter loved him!!
The book might disappoint fans of nonstop fight scenes from page one. I appreciated the normal pace of the first half of the book, getting to know the setting and the characters, and enjoying a mildly smexy scene or two. Once the battle begins, it's supercharged action till nearly the end. Main characters, Anna Latham and Charles Cornick: Black hair flowing to his waist, Charles Cornick, his powerful father's enforcer and -- well -- killer, is an alpha werewolf by nature, even though his sire Bran Cornick, "The Marrrok" bears the true title Alpha, commanding all the werewolves in North America.

Distanced from others by his "enforcer" position, alone and aloof for much of his years, feared by all except his beloved father and older brother Samuel, Charles finally finds his mate in Anna Latham, an omega werewolf.
It's sweet. Charles, the stoic son of a mystical Salish native Blue Jay Woman simply cannot believe the fierce joy and deep peace Anna brings to his very soul -- and to his inner beast Brother Wolf. Like Charles, Anna has also been lonely, but only for three years, since she "changed" into a werewolf at age 20 and was isolated from friends and family. Before that she was happy enough, attending college for a music degree, working in a music store, running in marathons, etc.
After the change, she suffered vicious abuse, both sexual and physical, from the pack in Chicago see prequel, Alpha and Omega. As a result, Anna has learned to retreat into her inner wolf, to let her animal endure the pain and terror. Now, with Charles fiercely watching her back, there's no need for fear, so Anna, an "omega" by nature, can finally become a gentle but non-subservient peace-bringer to her pack, perceptive and intuitive.
She can develop the gift she was born to give, aided by her protective instincts, her music, and her sensitive compassion for tortured souls. Not a moment too soon, either. Together, they must defeat a very wicked, very old witch.
Secondary Characters: Werewolves in Montana: This book contains some great scenes with Bran as the POV shifts to him several times. We learn the back-story regarding Bran and Samuel's days in Old England, when they were both controlled by a witch till they killed, escaped, and sought refuge in a Welsh forest.
According to legend, Sir Marrok's wife forced him to remain in werewolf form for seven years, by hiding his clothes no clothing, no shifting. So maybe Bran dates back to around the fifth century.
At any rate, in this book, Asil reflects on how Bran's legend influenced poems like Beowulf told around ish. Links to Mercy Thompson series: In Moon Called MT 1 a teenager in Chicago is attacked by werewolves, changed, caged, drugged, and sold.
In this story, Charles goes to Chicago to deal with the rogue werewolves who did it Leo, Justin, etc. Charles first meets his "omega" wolf Anna in Chicago.
As far as cross-series characters go, Cry Wolf includes many scenes with Bran and a few with Samuel, but Adam and Mercy are only mentioned. Asil the Moor is a powerful werewolf who plays a good-sized role in this book and in MT 7, Frost Burned. Cry Wolf set in Aspen Creek, Montana 1.

The story is a prequel to this book in which we get to meet Anna, a reluctant member of the Chicago Pack werewolves. Three years ago, she was turned against her will and since then went through emotional, physical and sexual abuse by her Pack.
This was done to 'break her' as Anna didn't automatically act submissive around more dominant wolves. Anna is special: When Charles Cornick, the enforcer and son of the Marrok the leader of the North American Werewolves comes to Chicago to investigate the issue, he has an immediate attraction to Anna.
Better yet, his 'Brother Wolf' has too. As it happens Anna and Charles' wolf counterparts pretty soon see each other as "mated". The human counterparts however, especially Anna's -traumatized as she is- need a while to get to know each other. And that's where Cry Wolf starts off.
Anna goes back to the Marrok's territory in Montana with Charles and tries to find her place in the new life she's got presented. In the mean time there's a rogue on the loose which needs to be brought in. Unlike the Mercy Thompson novels, the emphasis in Cry Wolf was less on the action and more on the romance.
Which was good for two reasons. There's a lot of awkwardness, tension, misinterpretation of feelings going on between Anna and Charles. Charles, being his father's assassin for over years, is not good with words, doesn't like to be touched and is feared by just about everyone And Anna: I loved how it was written out and it was very endearing in general. Only in the last half of the book is there more excitement in that department. And still, the ending is a bit of a let down. To me, Anna and Charles just as well could have stayed home and be awkward with each other for a while longer, I'd enjoyed that more.
In general: Briggs' writing style is simple but effective. She has a nice way of portraying her characters. I especially liked reading about Charles' perspective, I find him more interesting than Anna. The bad part is that Briggs' plot in this book seemed really simple too. Not much really happens and too much is based on coincidence. I think I wouldn't have minded a break from the romance if the action parts were better thought out.
Still, Cry Wolf was an enjoyable read. The 3 star rating seems a bit harsh, but 4 would have been just too much. Feb 06, Felicia rated it liked it Shelves: Get the novella before you read this. Believe me, I did it. Bad idea, shoulda added it to the book I think. Enjoyed it though, the character was very unlike Mercy but still I enjoyed! Sep 05, Maya rated it really liked it Shelves: I love reading PNR books with plots that have action, romance and are overall just pure magic to read about.
It's just something about the fictional worlds that can make you forget about the stressful daily life. So when I finished this one, I don't know if I had too high hopes or maybe it was something else, but I expected more from it. I always say simple is best and that also applies to this writin 3,5 STARS I wanted to read this book for a long time and now I finally took the time and did it. I always say simple is best and that also applies to this writing style.
Sometimes I couldn't enjoy the book quite as much because of that. What I did love is the action, that we've got plenty of and but what I was missing was more romance, more soul bonding and expressionism about what they felt. We get both POVs but I would've liked for the characters to talk and open up more about themselves, especially Anna. She's been though three years of hell and all the abuse would leave scars on anyone. So I felt like that issue wasn't really resolved.
For me, I felt like their relationship wasn't build up well enough for me to believe it or be completelly comfortable with it. I enjoyed Charles's character.
He is definitely a good mate, who's patient and so caring. I didn't like the scene in the prewuel with his ex but it's fine. We can't get everything we want. I did like the rest of the characters and I wonder if they'll get their own stories. My heart broke for the poor rough wolf and Asil. I wished they'd get their happy ending but their loss make their lives just a little more special.
Overall, I did like this story. It's a great PNR book, with lovely characters and since the wolves want to become more public in the next books that follow, I think this might make for an interesting series. Dec 10, Richard Derus rated it liked it Shelves: DNF p Real Rating: I don't like reading about straight people having sex.
So that's why I don't wanna go on I know your sensitivity to this unpleasant reality is different, but this issue increasingly makes a book unreadable to me. I am not straight, I didn't like straight sex very much when I was having it, and I am just not willing to compromise my remaining reading time with overlooking stuff not aimed at my pleasure centers.
Being an Omega means she can calm down the wolfside of a werewolf, giving peace to a species of volatile monsters, she in invaluable. But it is difficult to throw off three years of brutalization and fear and the new start isn't 4. But it is difficult to throw off three years of brutalization and fear and the new start isn't as smooth as she hoped, especially with a rogue werewolf killing so near the Marrock's territory. And although at this point I am still prefering the Mercy series, I really enjoyed this book.
The main attraction of this book for me after reading the novella was seeing what would happen between Charles and Anna. They are both quiet and self contained people and I loved seeing them coming together and relying eachother, it was expediated by the plot as they are both thrown in to an extreme situation, but this just made it more exciting. Mt crush on Bran is definitely blooming into a full blown obsession. Although by the end I did feel sorry for Leah, even though I know she is a bitch, I certainly wouldn't want to be her.
Did anyone else find that? A great start and I can't wait to read more. Dec 08, Mada Linx rated it really liked it. Nice, nice. Very nice. I enjoyed this more than I thought I would. January Re-read. Buddy read with Sarah January Re-read: Buddy read with Sarah December re-read: Her character-arc is absolutely fantastic. She's still figuring out here way, not only in her very new relationship with Charles, or moving across country, or joining a January Re-read.
She's still figuring out here way, not only in her very new relationship with Charles, or moving across country, or joining a new pack, but learning what it is to actually be Pack, to be a werewolf, and to BE and Omega. It's not easy because Omegas are pretty rare in the entire series, I've only heard of one other - who is also new , and one of the only sources that knows a great deal about them, is fairly traumatized and reluctant to really speak of it.
Nonetheless, Anna flourishes.
She learns, through trial and error, following instinct. She listens to herself and thinks things through. And she is a steady presence for everyone around her. I love that her mating with Charles has to wait for their human parts to catch up to what their wolves have already decided.
I like that - especially with her past abuse - it's not instantaneous. I love that she's still healing even beyond this book, actually , and that there's no rush from the people surrounding her.
They love and accept her. That's a big block of love for Anna. She deserves it. Charles does, too. He's not one that has a bold sense of humor, it's subtle and sneaks up on you, but it makes me truly grin. SlideShare Explore Search You. Submit Search. Successfully reported this slideshow.
