*Please note, this is an adult title. While I mostly review YA titles, I will from time to time review adult titles.

Title: Hunting Ground (Alpha & Omega, #2)
Author: Patricia Briggs
Publisher: Ace, 304 Pages (August 25th, 2009)
From: Amazon

Synopsis: Mated to werewolf Charles Cornick, the son -and enforcer -of the leader of the North American werewolves, Anna Latham now knows how dangerous being a werewolf is, especially when a werewolf opposes Charles and his father is struck down.

Charles's reputation makes him the prime suspect, and the penalty for the crime is execution. Now Anna and Charles must combine their talents to hunt down the real killer -or Charles will take the fall.

Review: 4 Stars - Hunting Ground is the second book in the Alpha and Omega series and picks up almost right where we left off with Cry Wolf. It tells us the continued story of Anna and Charles Cornick - as they head to Seattle for a meeting with the Alphas from around the world to discuss them coming out to the world as the Fey have. (Note, this is a sister series to the Mercy Thompson series by the same author. This and that series follow along almost the same time line, so the stories do cross here and there.)

Bran - Charles father, The Marrok - head of all the packs in the US is planning for them to revel themselves. Most of the wolves agree, yet some are pushing with force that this not happen.

This meeting was a place for all to listen and air concerns about the pending reveal to the world. No matter what, Bran’s plans are in place to tell the World, he just wants to make it known that he's there to help, support and guide no matter what the outcome might be for them all.

With this looming over them... knowing not all the wolf packs around the world support this, there was bound to be trouble.

We get a chance to see more of Anna and Charles in their new relationship and marriage. We get to see more of the emotional scars that Anna has from her past. It's great to see just how calm and patient Charles is with her, knowing who he is and what he does – he’s his father’s enforcer/assassin. It just makes me LOVE this couple even more. I like seeing how Charles is just as timid around Anna because of who HE is and not just because of her past. It was great even with this second book that we could continue along with them as they worked through their still new relationship.

I also loved that we had a chance to see more of the fierce side of Anna. In the end both Anna and Charles worked together to deal with the threats that surround them and were brought closer together because of it; both growing in the process - which I felt was important to the telling of their story within in the larger one.

All in all, this is one of my favorite series. I love Briggs writing style and ability to weave a great story. Props to her with how she's able to interweave two different series into the same world. This is one you don't want to miss.
