I received a copy of Wild Sign in exchange for a fair and honest review.

Yes! It’s time for fans to sit down and read the sixth novel in Patricia Briggs’ Alpha & Omega series: Wild Sign. This is by far the book I’ve been most looking forward to this month, and I am so excited to have read it.

Deep in the wilds, one small (and illegal) town has gone missing. Since they were in the middle of pack property, that makes their disappearance a pack problem. More specifically, it makes it Charles and Anna’s problem.

It is a good thing that the supernaturals of this world have set out to solve what has happened, for there is no way that human law could have stood a chance. What is lurking in those woods is very old, and very, very dangerous. Those that know of it know better than to speak of it, and they certainly know better than to sing about it.

“As the daughter of a lawyer, Anna’s natural inclination was to respect the law.”

My biggest regret about reading Wild Sign is that it’s over, and now I must play the waiting game all over again. Wild Sign was an intense and thrilling read, as were all of the other novels in this series (as well as Mercy’s series, obviously).

I love all of the wolves in Patricia Briggs’ world, so I will always greedily read anything she writes about them. Be it in the form of Mercy’s series, or Anna and Charles’. Naturally, that meant that Wild Sign was an automatic must-read for me.

It is a novel that did not disappoint. I absolutely adored the way the monster in this novel was introduced. No, that’s actually an understatement. Everything about this being, from their first introduction to the aesthetic and way Briggs laid out the history was so horrifying and compelling. It’s impossible to look away.

It also fits in so nicely with what we know of Charles and Anna. Thematically, it was all very appropriate. Though it did dredge up some of the worst moments from Anna’s past – so for those readers out there who have a bit of trouble with those points, please consider yourselves warned.

“Anna would much rather be curled up with him in front of the fire or eating something one or the other of them had cooked.”

What’s more, there’s more than just that main plot (and threat) going on within these pages. There is a very human element, and I mean that in the most literal sense possible. The FBI are involved and I’m anxious to see where that leads.

Likewise, there are hints dropped about other characters over the course of Wild Sign, and I’m simply dying to see how all of that is going to unfold. Especially that major reveal at the end of the book. Gah! I wonder how long we’ll have to wait to find out more? Either way, I’m sure it will be worth the wait.
