Née en 1965 à Butte dans le Montana, Patricia Briggs est une auteure renommée pour ses personnages pleins de vie et ses dialogues humoristiques. Ayant débutée sa carrière d'écrivain en 1990, l'auteure rédige quelques ouvrages de Fantasy jusqu'à ce que son éditeur lui propose de se lancer dans l'Urban Fantasy. C'est ainsi qu'elle donne naissance à Mercy Thompson, qui reste à ce jour son plus gros succès.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 The alpha and his omega 1 novembre 2009
Par EA Solinas - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
A lot of urban fantasy makes a big deal about alpha werewolves, often on the assumption that "alpha" means big, strong and sexy among wolves.

But Patricia Briggs explores the opposite end of the spectrum in the novella "Alpha and Omega," which also serves as a springboard for her new series (a sort of spinoff in the same universe as the Mercy Thompson series). It's a tightly written, open-ended little story about an abused Omega werewolf and the unexpected love between her and a very powerful alpha.

When a boy is kidnapped by her abusive pack, a terrified Anna finally dares to call the Marrok, the leader of all werewolves. He ends up sending his son Charles Cornick to deal with the troublemakers, and Charles is shocked when he realizes that Anna isn't a super-submissive wolf -- she's a rare Omega wolf, and the disgusting Leo and savage Justin have been abusing and molesting her all over the place.

And now Charles is determined to change all that, especially by showing Anna the way a werewolf's life is REALLY supposed to be, about her status as an Omega, and the connection between them. But there are some truly nasty secrets at the heart of the Chicago pack and the strange absence of female werewolves -- and now that Anna knows who she is, she isn't going to take it lying down.

"Alpha and Omega" is set in the same world as several of Patricia Briggs' other urban fantasy stories (most notably the ongoing Mercy Thompson series) -- for example, the ancient werewolf lord known as the Marrok seems to hang over this novella like a thundercloud. But the opening novella of the Alpha and Omega series works quite nicely as a story on its own, with new characters and problems.

Briggs brings a lush, atmospheric feel to this particular story ("Though he smelled of anger, he also smelled like spring rain, wolf, and man"), as well as some unexpected plot twists and an ending that paves the way for future stories about Anna and Charles. And she does a good job dealing with the concept of "omega wolves" -- sort of a lupine "class clown" of very low rank -- and their importance to werewolves.

Personally I'm sick and tired of "forced" relationships wherein magical forces MAKE the characters have a relationship. It's usually a sign of a writer's laziness in writing about love, or worse. But Briggs actually pulls it off -- despite the mystical wolf-mating between Charles and Anna's lupine sides, their budding relationship is a genuinely touching one, full of protectiveness, respect and growing trust.

"Alpha and Omega" was a solid start to a new urban fantasy series, and it leaves you wanting to know what will happen next for Charles and Anna. A pleasant little read, but have "Cry Wolf" close at hand.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 alpha & omega 2 janvier 2009
Par Viola Sanders - Publié sur Amazon.com

"Alpha & Omega" is a short story by Patricia Briggs set in the world of her Mercy Thompson series. While it is certainly not necessary to read Briggs' Mercy series, "Alpha & Omega" will be richer if you do. The two main characters are Charles Cornick (Samuel's brother & Bran's son) & a new werewolf, Anna Latham. Charles instantly recognizes Anna as his mate & an Omega wolf. The Omega wolf was a new concept to me & is a wolf who is outside of the pack structure & provides a calming influence to, among other things, wolves who have trouble with the change.

"Alpha & Omega" mainly serves to set up Briggs' new series involving Anna & Charles, but it is a great little story in its own right. I have read "Cry Wolf," the first book in the Anna & Charles series, & I definitely think that you should read "Alpha & Omega" first.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Wonderful Story and Couple + Rebuttal to the 1 star ratings 30 août 2010

First I have to state I am very disappointed with the people who have given this one star. When you read their comments 2 are angry about "price" and the other is mad about the lack of preview text -- Neither of these issues have to do with reviewing the story and its content. If you don't like the price of this edition (a signed limited issue collectors hardback) get the paper back anthology that has the story in it (on the prowl). And as for not having a preview of the story, vent to amazon - do not disrespect this wonderful story and fantastic author for it. Now on to my review!

I will not give a summary as that has been done earlier and the book caption is very well done. That being said this is one of my ALL TIME favorite stories. I for one was so very glad this hardback edition became available because I ruined 2 paperback editions reading and RE-reading this magical tale!

Anna and Charles are one of the most wonderful couples ever written. Their tale is told in such an honest and REAL way that I felt not only like they were real but like I had met them and traveled the books journey with them. For a short story it has more emotional punch than most novels I have read and sets the stage for a fantastic continuation in subsequent books. I have since read the two follow up books ( cry wolf and hunting ground) and have not been at all disappointed.

Anna proves that a woman can be strong and still feminine; can be beaten but not broken. With an internal strength that rivals Joan of Arc she traverses internal and external trials like a champion warrior.

Charles shows that physical strength (and the alpha male) can also be gentle, caring and emotionally stable. He also shows how strong it can be to have faith in someone else and to trust in the one you love.

I can not recommend this story enough...read it for yourself! If I could give 6 out of 5 stars I would!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Subterranean Press 11 décembre 2009

While I understand why some reviewers think the book is too expensive, they miss the point of ordering books from a publisher like Subterranean Press. They print books on acid free paper, full cloth boards, and add illustrations. They are a small press that prints limited quantities of quality editions of your favorite authors. Their books won't fall apart in ten to twenty years from glue and paper that has turned brittle with age. Their books are for collectors and readers who enjoy holding a well made book. If you want Wal Mart prices, stop shopping at Neiman Marcus.
As for the book, it is wonderful! The story is a great short story, and essential to read first before the other books in the series. Patricia Briggs just doesn't write a bad book. The book itself is beautifully made. I loved holding it and looking at it as I read it. Another great job from Subterranean Press.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great start of a werewolf series 25 octobre 2008
Par deborakaye - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
This novella was previously included in the anthology, On the Prowl.

It is the beginning of a spin-off series from Ms. Briggs' popular Mercy Thompson series.

If you liked Blood Bound, Iron Kissed, or Moon Called, you will really enjoy this new series.
