Did anyone else pick up the new Patricia Briggs, Cry Wolf that came out on Tuesday? I just bought it at Walmart yesterday and am reading it (secretly) at work right now. So far I really like the Anna character even if she is very different from Mercy. I also love getting some insight into Charles. So far so good, I am hoping it stays good although she has never dissapointed me with any of the Mercy novels.

I have mine here sitting at the top of my TBR :-)  Can't wait to dive into it, but I'm trying to get all the Twilight books reread before I get Breaking Dawn tomorrow, so it will have to wait until after that...lol.

i've ordered my copy, but it hasn't arrived yet.  hopefully monday!

i really liked the Anna & Charles short story from On the Prowl.  i guess i'll find out when it arrives whether the same ground - their first meeting and such - gets covered again in the novel.  though if i'd thought of it earlier, i'd have looked while i was at the bookstore today.

I have it ordered, but haven't received it yet.   I just love the Mercy books.  I just got on the WL for "Preying for Mercy".  It's a HC of her first 3 books.  Also can't wait for her 4th.  I just hope it isn't as dark as her last one.  I really felt bad for her in that book!  I usually don't like a series with the same heroine, but I just love Mercy and also Mojo Sheepshanks by LL Miller.

 

Just finished:  Damian by Jacquelyn Frank

I have so many books, I don't know what to start next.

I have it and plan on reading it next week. I am hoping it will be as good as the Mercy series.

i stopped by a different bookstore this evening, and peeked at the beginning of the book.  it does begin after the story in On the Prowl.

ETA: oh, and i also had to stop after about 2 pages - or i'd have wanted to buy it and bring it home to read *right now*, even though i have a copy coming in only a few days.  really good sign!

I've got it, but I am waiting to get On The Prowl in the mail so I can read the short story first.

I just bought it two day ago.  I am bummed now knowing Walmart had it, I could have saved myself a few bucks. Oh well. I haven't started it yet.  I am trying to decide which book to read next, so maybe I will move it up my list.

I work at a Walmart and either we never got it or our book vendors are behind in putting out some of the new releases.   I'll have to ask next week...

This was one of the books posted in the "new pn books to WL" thread when my computer crashed and by the time I replaced it the WL was pretty long so I knew I'd break down and buy it new:lol:  Very glad to hear it's good:)

i got it and read it tonight.  it was very good!  i look forward to more Anna & Charles almost as much as i look forward to more Mercy.

i do think that things will make more sense from the beginning if you've read the story in On The Prowl first.

My co-worker/friend lent it to me and I am reading it now. It's good so far. I read the short story in "On the Prowl" but can't recall it for the life of me. Can anybody give me a synopsis of that short story? Thanks!  :)

I finished it this week and yep, it was awesome. Definately worthy of staying on my "keeper bookshelf". I didn't think I would like anything as much as I like Mercy but I really enjoyed Anna and Charles. I would definately read On the Prowl first as there is very minimal re-hash/summary done of those events.

I got it and read it Saturday.  Even though  I enjoyed reading about Anna and Charles in On the Prowl, I was unsure whether I wanted to start another series.

But, once I got it, I couldn't put it down. 

Patricia Briggs has never failed me yet!

I started it last night (big mistake) and made myself put it down at about 1:00am.  So I think I'm a bit more then 1/2 thru....they just left for their adventure.  I love the story but as of now I find Anna whiney and annoying.  I'll take Mercy over Anna anyday.

I did end up liking it a lot...I finished it last night.  Overall it was very good, and I ended up liking Anna a lot more by the end.  But the best part of the book was the preview of Bone Crossed!  It picks up right where Iron Kissed ended...and for those that read Iron Crossed I wanted to SCREAM at the end of it...I was so frustrated!  So I was very happy to get a  peak at what happens next...but now I can't wait to read it!

I just finished it just now -- I loved it.  I really love Patricia Briggs books.  I like her characters, and the dialogue and well everything.  I also loved reading the preview of the next book.  I was glad to see Stefan is back -- I was worried about him at the end of the last one. 

    Now after reading Cry Wolf, and knowing what happens later to Samuel, I wonder what he will do now with Mercy picking Adam.

I'm currently reading this now. It's a slow read for me, not catching my attention. I'm hoping it gets better as I go on.

Edited because I can't type.
