Pre-Squee: Dead Heat by Patricia Briggs

Posted 4 February, 2015 | Mary @ TheBookSwarm | Review | 14 Comments


Welcome to the Pre-Squee, a feature here at The Book Swarm and the fabulous Bewitched Bookworms. Some books, though they might not be coming out for a few months, need an early squee — we just can’t hold in our excitement about them!

I love pretty much everything that Patricia Briggs writes. This particular series, set in Mercy Thompson’s world, features Anna and Charles. Anna’s an Omega wolf, which mean she has the ability to calm those feisty Alphas. She hooked up with Charles, who rescued her from the crazy wolf who originally turned her. She, in turn, saves him with her Omega vibes, calming the old wolf on the verge of going feral, becoming his mate.

The fourth installment in this series sees Anna and Charles’s relationship growing and deepening. We worry about Charles, because he’s the pack assassin, the guy who takes care of the wet work. Anna helps him deal with it but he still struggles. So, when Charles and Anna head off to Arizona, it’s for a little downtime. Of course, that’s a bit of a dream…there’s always another baddie lurking around the corner and this time, it’s a completely bonkers Fae. D’oh!

Great to spend time with Anna and Charles again. While you don’t have to have read the Mercy Thompson series to get into the Alpha and Omega series, you do need to read the prior book to really experience Anna and Charles properly.

  1. I listened to the first three on audio and read an advanced copy of this, I really enjoyed it and oddly enough I could hear Holter’s voice in my head. I am going to stick with audio format though..I love the extra elements it adds.

  2. I definitely want to start this series soon, Mary! I love Mercy Thompson and I’ve heard great things about Alpha and Omega too. I need to check who narrates, because I’ll probably listen instead of reading. That’s usually the only way I can squeeze in books just for me (not obligated review books).
