Review: Bran, the Marrok, is planning to bring werewolves out of hiding and into the open. As leader of the North American werewolves, he doesn’t need anyone’s permission, but invites the leaders of foreign werewolf regions to a conference to hear their misgivings about the plan and make assurances that he will do what he can to minimize the impact on their organizations. Bran sends Charles, his son and “enforcer”, to the conference in his stead. Charles, of course, brings Anna, his mate and the pack’s omega werewolf, which proves to have interesting effects on the conference. Of course, when you have so many dominant alpha werewolves in one place, there’s bound to be trouble, so it also make perfect sense to hire a powerful fae as the mediator, to enforce the rules.
But, who invited the vampires?
Bottom Line: Anna continues to be fleshed out as a character, while she continues to learn about being an omega. Any number of events in this story are predictable, some unavoidable, but it flows along at a nice pace and doesn’t stretch believability too far. I’m still not really getting any emotion from these characters, but it’s not for a lack of Ms. Briggs trying. I’m just not feeling it. That said, if you’re a fan of the genre or Briggs’ work, this is a decent book. Not great, but not bad.
