Anna Latham didn’t know how complicated life could be until she became a werewolf. And until she was mated to Charles Cornick, the son — and enforcer — of Bran, the leader of the North American werewolves, she didn’t know how dangerous it could be either...
Anna and Charles have just been enlisted to attend a summit to present Bran’s controversial proposition: that the wolves should finally reveal themselves to humans. But the most feared Alpha in Europe is dead set against the plan — and it seems like someone else might be too. When Anna is attacked by vampires using pack magic, the kind of power only werewolves should be able to draw on, Charles and Anna must combine their talents to hunt down whoever is behind it all — or risk losing everything... FIVE BOUNDLESS STARS
The third installment in the Alpha and Omega series was just as good as the first. Anna and Charles’s relationship is progressing through her trauma, and at the same time, they are put into volatile situations. We also learn more about what an Omega truly is and what their place is in a pack and what their power is. Omega is the thing to be. Anna is turning out to be one kick-ass chick. She has to get past her trauma. I like that she does not let it define her, but I feel she needs to acknowledge it. I think she will not truly heal until she ultimately faces it. In Hunting Ground, the stage was set for a big mystery. I guessed who the villain was quickly. I had my doubts for a bit, but it turned out I was correct. It usually bothers me when I can guess, but this time it did not, the story still gave enough mystery that I was not sure until the end. Hunting Ground is an example of how paranormal fantasy is done, I loved listening to every second. I am giving it 5 Boundless Stars.
