Mated werewolves Charles Cornick and Anna Latham must discover what could make an entire community disappear — before it's too late — in this thrilling entry in the #1 New York Times bestselling Alpha and Omega series.

In the wilds of the Northern California mountains, all the inhabitants of a small town have gone missing. It's as if the people picked up and left everything they owned behind. Fearing something supernatural might be going on, the FBI taps a source they've consulted in the past: the werewolves Charles Cornick and Anna Latham. But Charles and Anna soon find a deserted town is the least of the mysteries they face.

Death sings in the forest, and when it calls, Charles and Anna must answer. Something has awakened in the heart of the California mountains, something old and dangerous — and it has met werewolves before.

urban mystery SUSPENSE well written

It was wonderful to be back with Charles and Anna in Wild Sign by Patricia Briggs, the sixth Alpha & Omega novel. Whether you read or listen to the narration by Holter Graham, you’ll find Briggs delivered a suspenseful five star tale.

I love this series, so much so that I read the ARC first and then listened to the audio narration. Brilliant both times. Charles and Anna go back to the place Bran found his second wife, Leah, in this nail-biting, suspenseful tale.

When the FBI shows up at Charles and Anna’s door asking for help about a town’s disappearance, Bran sends Tag, Anna and Charles to northern California to investigate.

Think Roanoke. Just the thought gives me the chills. We learn about Leah, mythical creature(s) and more. What they find up there and what happens was intense. It messed with their mating bond but also showed the strength of it.

Tag is a hoot, and damn it if he didn’t make me cry. Clear your calendar before starting this. Even on my second go through, I found myself completely drawn in…. and I knew what was going to happen!

It was interesting learning more about Leah, Bran and their beginnings. Leah is a strong character, and the knowing was good for her. It also explains another key character.

The ending of Wild Sign had me giddy as I sat there with my jaw on the floor and cursing Briggs for making me wait on the next book. It wasn’t a cliffhanger, the mystery of the town wrapped up, but it is something that will bring change. Eep!

If you pick up the audiobook, you’ll love the narration provided by Holter Graham. He’s narrated all the Alpha & Omega books. Even when I am reading it is his voice, I hear in my head. Brilliant. He sets the tone, enhances the characters, and adds another layer of depth to the stories.

Wild Sign by Patricia Briggs was a nail-biting edition to the Alpha & Omega series. Whether you read it or listen to Holter Graham narrate, you'll slip into the story. #NewRelease #MustRead #Audiobook #AutoBuy Click To Tweet

    Sooooo, do we think Sherwood is a relative of Brans? Another brother perhaps?

    Briggs is an author I really want to read and have for years. I need to make a list and actually get some of these authors read!

    Excellent review! I loved everything about this book. I also read the ARC and then listened to the audio. It’s one of the best in a series of awesome reads. I was all set with having had the reread last year with the Read-along and rereading all of this series over the past 2 months.

    Reading now so I’m peeking through my fingers at your rating and will have to come back to see what you thought. 🙂

      Okay, yep, I was left with my mouth working in wonder at the end, too. Loved Charles and Anna and Tag (and Brother Wolf) working together on the mysterious missing town. And, was fascinated by all that was revealed about Leah and Bran. I haven’t re-read this series yet, but I will totally be doing it on audio.

    I agree 100% This may be my favorite A/O book yet. It was so intense and so good. I loved learning about Leah and the other “bad guys” (avoiding spoilers). The ending… I hope Ms. Briggs doesn’t make us wait three more years for the next book!

    Yes!! I absolutely adored this and it really was so much fun to be back in this world. We went way too long without an Anna and Charles book!

  7. Rachel

    Yep my jaw dropped at that ending, too! I was happy to get more history of Bran, Leah, and Sherwood Post! I never liked Leah much in the past but my feelings have changed. She deserved what Bran gave her in the end!
