Well structured fun. ( )

Did it again, thought I had the first book of the series not the middle one....oops.

At any rate having read the Mercy Thompson series I knew of Charles and Anna so I wasn't completely lost about who they are and what they do.

I like these two together. As his father's enforcer Charles has taken many lives and settled many grievances, he has the ghosts haunting him to prove it. Anna is a rare Omega and the perfect partner for Charles. She can settle folks down, get them to cooperate with her and gets Charles to loosen up.

Their are murders going on in Boston that the government doesn't understand. They originally wanted Adam Hauptman, Mercy Thompson's mate and alpha wolf, to be the consultant for the wolves but Mercy was recently injured and Adam will not leave her side. Both Anna and Bran, his father, feel this might be good for Charles as they know something is on his mind but he's not letting anyone close enough to find out what's going on.

The government agents are for the most part trying to keep an open mind and maybe learn a thing or two. We get to see the wolves work with fae and witches. Charles gets to do a little magic. (He's a rare case in that he was born a werewolf and not "changed" into on. He also has some spirit of shaman and witch magic running through him. Talk about a triple threat.)

In this the group rescues a fae's human daughter from a trio of men who think the government isn't doing enough to rid the planet of the evil that are wolves, fae and witches. Turns out daddy is one of the fae's High Lords. At the end something happens that makes this lord very angry and when he makes a statement...DAMN, no getting away from that scene. (It does explain why in the MT series all the fae have voluntarily retreated to their reservations)

Good story. Love these characters as much as I love Mercy, Adam and their gang. Looking forward to reading the rest of the series. Maybe even do it in order...lol.

Somehow my review and rating is gone, so my review won't be as detailed as before.

This is the third book in the series and I loved it. From what I remember this shows the hardships that Charles is facing, after the werewolves have been outed. He is the enforcer and has been been working too much in doing his job. Anna can see what a toll it is taking out of him and is extremely worried about him.

Anna does somewhat convince Bran to have Charles do something else for a bit, so they are both sent to Boston to meet with the FBI about some murders involving the werewolves.

This book showed some of the struggles that Anna and Charles relationship is going through since Charles won't let Anna in. I loved reading about Charles struggles and the growth him and Anna go through in this book.

This book sets up some big stuff that will be going down in future books.

Initially I was loving this story. Briggs has a light way of writing that sucks you and carries you along. I had been trying to start another book and failing miserably and it was a relief to fall into this book so easily.

The premise is that Charles is being left damaged and haunted by the executions he is carrying out for his father. It has damaged his mate bond and left Anna, his omega mate afraid and angry for him. A serial murderer has shown back up on the scenes and Charles is sent to help various government agencies with their work after one victim is found to be a werewolf. We get to see several different branches of government as Anna and Charles are pulled into the search for the latest victim, a half-blood fairy woman.

If you enjoy Patricia's werewolves you'll probably enjoy this next installment. I couldn't give it more than 3 stars for 2 (maybe 3) major reasons. I'm listing them as spoilers below.

As far as trigger warnings go:
- A girl is raped. We don't witness it. It is not the main character. Rape of the main character is discussed but not carried out.


1. Charles suspects he knows who the killer is within their ranks. I guessed it. It's not that damn hard. What pisses me off however is that Charles and Brother Wolf (who would rather chew their own leg off then even imagine Anna getting an insect bite) allow their mate to leave to go to a party where he will likely be. Charles is an alpha. He has dozens of wolves at his disposal. Yes, the trope of the ship's captain climbing off ship into danger is an old one. I sigh, roll my eyes, and accept it. In this case though it makes not sense because it leaves Anna, precious Anna, exposed. I saw it coming and was annoyed because it, out of everything broke my suspension of disbelief. There is no way I could rationalize Charles and Brother Wolf allowing Anna to wander into danger so he can go hunt. Especially after only a chapter before he said she was more important than any hunt or order from his father.
2. Oh my f'ing gods. Seriously. I won't lie. I read UF mostly because it at least attempts to be female centric and portray women as fierce, powerful and in control. I get that Anna is in many ways gentle and sweet. It's part of why I like her. She's fresh against a background of gun toting, ball busting females filling the genre. That said, I have no f'ing patience for females who still know the bad guy is out there and wander off alone. I get annoyed when they go hunting alone. I get pissed when they wander to the bathroom alone in an empty portion of a bar. I wouldn't do that and there's not loony bin in my life who thinks my pelt would look good on a wall. As soon as Anna went to powder her nose I knew what was coming and it was so trite and so damsel in distress that I held my breath for 4 or 5 pages just hoping I was wrong. Nope. I get it, Charles is the damaged one here and he's the one that needs to be the hero to get fixed. This series is set up to be less female centric and more couple centric. Fine. It is not that I am against women needing to be rescued. What I hate is that it was completely damsel in distress. She was kidnapped in a millisecond, completely robbed of any ability to protect herself, chained, threatened with rape and then forced into uselessness and sat back and watched her lover come rescue her before swooning thanks to being shot. Next time they can give her a long braid and she can get locked in a tower. Yes, she didn't faint, or whine, and fought back but it's still so f'ing stupid. That's fine, let your chicks get kidnapped but let them make semi-intelligent decisions that even soberish sorority girls manage every day.

Off the soap box but I may be done with this and the Mercy series just thanks to repeated damsel and distress boredom. Just because you can turn into a canid and use magical powers does not prevent you from getting damseled. Only your writer can prevent that. Yes, this is more PNR than UF but seriously? It ruined the latter half of the book for me.

Fair Game is the 3rd book in the Alpha and Omega series by Patricia Briggs. If you want to read these books in order and have not started them yet, I would recommend starting with the short story titled Alpha and Omega in the book On the Prowl.

Charles is the enforcer and son for the leader of the North American Werewolves. It is a job that has changed dramaticlaly now that werewolves have come out to the public. Charles is becoming conflicted about enforcing new rules and expectations of werewolves everywhere. When his mate, Anna, is sent to help law enforcement find a serial killer that is now murdering werewolves he finds himself dangerously close to the edge. Anna is an Omega and can calm the wolf inside. Can Anna convince Charles to let her help when it is the man that is in trouble?

I really liked Fair Game. The deepening of the story line to this whole world has me craving the next book (don’t want to give spoilers so I really cannot say more). Anna has grown as a character and it great seeing her keep everyone in check. The story flowed very well and the ending was great! I would recommend reading this series in order, although I do think that Fair Game could be read interdependently as well.
