Title: Hunting Ground
Author: Patricia Briggs
Page Count: 286
Why I read it: 2nd in series
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.
Patricia Briggs is one of those authors I can always count on for good books. I don't think I've read a book of hers that I haven't really liked. This one was no exception. Hunting Ground was fast paced and had some good twists and turns, even though I kinda saw it coming.
I love that she has strong female characters who can hold their own (and then some) with the men. I'm starting to like this as well as the Mercy Thompson series, which is saying a lot, because I think that's my favorite paranormal series, maybe. I like Charles and Anna's relationship.
I would definitely recommend this and any other book by Patricia Briggs. Start the Alpha and Omega series with Cry Wolf, or you could start with the Mercy Thompson series, which starts with Moon Called.
