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..

Our Thoughts on Fair Game:

  Patricia Briggs blows her previous books out of the water with Fair Game. With a fabulous storyline that will thrill readers with its climactic plot keeping them at the edge of their page not wanting to put it down, Fair Game is the best book yet from the Alpha and Omega series. What a powerhouse of action and intrigue in the story as Anna and Charles are both tightly leashed to their fears and shortcomings. When the fey get mixed up in werewolf business and a old serial killer is now tuned to werewolf hunting, Anna and Charles may find that their bond can be compromised at the worst of times. 
  Fair Game is a breathtaking story thy will capture readers with the twist and turns and murder mysteries inherit throughout the novel. As Charles and Anna both fight to survive their ghosts and hunters they must find strength in one another and rise above their hunters within to fight the ones killing innocents. 
    Bran is a wise wood but his measures of enforcing are increasing with the werewolves making national attention. Charles is struggling within himself to overcome the series of transgressors he has been sent out to kill to protect all of the werewolves in America and the toll is impacting his relationship with Anna. Sending Charles and Anna to assist the FBI with a serial killer case that involves recent deaths of werewolves hoping that the thrill of the hunt of discovering the killer and sending him to justice will satisfy his wolf, Bran is keeping a tight leash on his wolves as their recent introduction to the world has increasing complications.
    When favors are called in and the werewolves mix with the fey and humans the future may change for everyone involved. There is nothing more dear than a loved one, and when they are taken from you there is no stopping the coming storm until they are returned. With justice in their hearts these characters will stop at nothing to end a terrible hunt from a group of madmen. Justice can be bought but revenge is a dish served best cold and swiftly when the time comes.
