Cry Wolf, Patricia Briggs

"Anna never knew werewolves existed until the night she survived a violent attack…and became one herself. After three years at the bottom of the pack, she’d learned to keep her head down and never, ever trust dominant males. But Anna is that rarest kind of werewolf: an Omega. And one of the most powerful werewolves in the country will recognize her value as a pack member—and as his mate."

This book was kind of a let down for me. I have never read any of this genre of supernatural/fantasy/romance with glowing cover art before but I read some reviews that made me think I would be into this kind of thing. I also was excited because I love finding new series to read and this author is quite prolific.

This book cover did make me feel a little bit like the kids Sue Sylvester was thinking of when she described: "invisibles and the kids playing live-action-druids-and-troll-out-in-the-forest — bottom floor.” That is who I have always judgmentally imagined read books with covers like this one.

I enjoyed reading the first half of the book but then I just got a little bogged down and disinterested in the wolf pack politics. I also was really only interested in the romance plot line between Anna and Charles so I definitely tuned out for the rest of the drama. I'm kind of bummed because I had already checked out the next book and now I don't even want to read it. It's not that it was so bad I just feel very neutral towards the story.
