Burn Bright by Patricia Briggs is an Alpha and Omega story in the same world as the Mercy Thompson stories. The events in this book take place after Silence Fallen and the book features Anna and Charles. Also in the story are Asil, Leah, Sage, and Devon. Devon was in the short story “Rose in Winter.”
Charles and Anna are taking care of the Marrok’s werewolf pack while the Marrok is out of the country. The Marrok is The Alpha of all the werewolf packs in North America. Close to the pack, yet not included in it, are the Wildings.
Charles and Anna get a call that there is trouble from the mate of one the Wildings, and they race to help. But the problem ends up being more complex than expected, there is a traitor in the pack. Charles, Anna, and Leah decide they need to get word to other Wildings to look out for trouble.
I enjoy the stories about Charles and Anna, and I like how Anna is growing more confident and secure in her position as Omega. Charles would love to just wrap her up and keep her safe, but he has to let her learn and grow. They are also continuing to grow as a mated pair. This book was different in that for the first time Leah, the Marrok’s mate, was shown to have a couple of good traits.
I found the ending amusing because Charles had to be rescued, and by whom is the funniest part. I really liked this book. I enjoy Patricia Briggs writing and her world building. She has been building more mystery into the books recently, and pulling surprises that leave you going…”WHAT?” This book did leave me with a couple of questions that I wonder if Patricia will end up answering in future books. But this book could be showing us where she will be going in the future. Unless her muse takes us down another path.
