Time to Say Goodbye to an Old Friend and also Find A Child Stealing Fae
Reviewed in the United States on March 25, 2021
The problem with being a werewolf if that you are destined to see your friends die. Charles used to run wild with Joseph, a human man. They were best friends for decades and shared so many stories with each other. But Charles has avoided him for at least twenty years as he got older. Now it is time to go say goodbye to his human friend and possibly save that mans family along the way.
“But that is the dual gift of love, isn’t it? The joy of greeting and the sorrow of good-bye.”
Anna and Charles have stumbled into a Fae mess. Trouble always seems to find them and it is a good thing too that they will be there to help Joseph’s family from the big bad that has been set free in Arizona since the Fae went into hiding. It is a nasty piece of work that has been let out into this world and children are its favorite target. Seriously creepy
I just adore Anna and Charles together. They complement each other so well and are fun to spend time with. Anna is just down to earth and brings out the best in people usually. Charles is the protector of those who have been hurt. Sure, usually he is his father’s enforcer but at the heart of it, Charles is the best protector or the lost and broken.
“We know," she whispered to him. "We who have been hurt, we know what evil looks like. We know you make us safe.”
As they look for who is responsible for the current missing child, we come across some other characters that show the Cantrip agents and our friend Leslie in the FBI some of the other horrors out there.
I honestly loved the plot and story behind this book. It was great to work with Leslie again and possibly meet a few people in Cantrip that aren’t complete idiots. Charles and Anna’s bond to each other is fantastic and I love how they are always there for one another and we get to see it in action again in this book. The plot was really engaging and suspenseful. I also thought that Joseph’s death was done so well in the story, it was really just a great way for him to go out and totally fitting.
I am enjoying this series even more than the Mercy Thompson series. I do think you need to at least have read a few books of that series in order to really like Alpha and Omega but I don’t think that you necessarily have to have read them up to the same point of each book to get what is going on.
