Hello,  I am hoping someone can help me out, I recently read Patricia Brigg's short story in Strange Brew and was wondering if the characters from it ( a Witch named Moira Keller, and a werewolf named Tom) are in any of her novels?  I have the first book in the Mercedes Thompson series on order but it looks like these are different characters.

 

thanks

Mike

Mike, I've read the Mercy Thompson books, the Alpha & Omega (Bk 1 of 2)  & Dragon Bones (Bk 1 of 2). The Witch Moira doesn't appear in any of these series so far, but the werewolf universe referred to in the anthology is the same as in Mercy and A & O. Moira was quite an interesting character & I wonder if there will be any overlap sometime. Cry Wolf (A&O) featured a nasty witch....

These characters are in Mercy's World.  I have heard that in Patricia Briggs "Hunting Ground" which comes out the end of this month we find  Moira & Tom.  This is Briggs 2nd Alpha & Omega book which we find Charles (Bran's son) and Anna.  "Cry Wolf" is the 1st Alpha & Omega.

I also love the world of Mercy Thompson and can't wait for her next book!

Oh, Norma, I'm glad to hear that we will see Moira again! She was a wonderful character & it makes sense that she would appear in the next A & O as they just fought off that "bad" witch in Book 1

Edited to add:  I've got Book 2 on order from Amazon, I liked Cry Wolf so much!

I have "Hunting Ground" on my WL here, but I am # l57 so it will be awhile!  I personally like the Mercedes Thompson books better as I like those characters a little more.  Not that I don't like Charles, Bran, and the Northern Pack.  I really liked the short story in "On the Prowl" anthology, but I just can't get into Anna.  I have no idea why because I was really excited when Charles got his own book.  I really like strong lead characters and she just fell short for me.  Just my opinion...................don't anyone beat me up over it!

Yup...Moira was in the Mercy Thompson series.  Nice to know she gets a short, I liked her character!
