I thoroughly enjoyed this first glimpse into the Alpha and Omega series by Patricia Briggs. If you don't have access to this book, you can also read the story in the anthology "On the Prowl". I was glad that I could continue with Anna and Charles story quickly, having acquired both Cry Wolf, and Hunting Ground, and Seeing Eye in the anthology Strange Brew that comes between these two books. Definitely a must read for werewolf lovers.
