Fair Game by Patricia Briggs (Alpha & Omega Series #3)

Title: Fair Game
Author(s): Patricia Briggs
Genre: Fiction -Science Fiction/Paranormal
Hardcover:304 pages
ISBN: 9780441020034
Publisher: Penguin Group(March 06, 2012)

Holy crap! I just finished reading Fair Game, book 3 in the Alpha and Omega series, and man was it ever the most  satisfying read! I laughed, held my breath, became angry, and even experienced chills while reading it, lol.
If you have not read the Mercy Thompson series and the corresponding Alpha & Omega series by Patricia Briggs then you HAVE TO READ THEM NOW! I cannot even begin to explain how awesomely intricate the world is and how gorgeously detailed and nuanced the characters are in these books :D

It's as if they are real people, and Ms. Briggs is beautifully relaying their deeds and adventures to us much like a good friend who has the best way of sharing gossip without it having any seemly qualities to it, lol!

In this A&O series, Anna and Charles are the main characters. Charles is the second son of Bran (the Marrock whom we know from Mercy's tales) and Anna is his mate and a very special woman. She is an Omega, which is something rare and very valuable type of person because of the special abilities they bring to the table in strengthening a pack. This is explained very well in the first books and while entertaining and fun, the first 2 books give way for Briggs to really make the A&O story come alive in Fair Game. It's a lotta bit mystery/suspense, a little bit urban fantasy/romance, and of course the scifi and paranormal all mixed into a divinely fantastic tale. I loved it and once again can't wait for my next hit of Brigg's master storytelling!

Let the Games Begin!

Things have been insanely busy for me this month, even this week of Spring Break. But since it IS Spring Break I made sure to plan at least one fun thing and so I'm off to see The Hunger Games tonight at midnight! WoOhoO! I even have my Mockingjay pin ready to wear lol. 

Also, I thought some of y'all might like to know that chapter 1 of Richelle Mead's The Golden Lily was posted yesterday at EW. It's book 2 of her Bloodline's series, the spinoff of her Vampire Academy series. I haven't even had time to read that 1 chapter yet, but I'm really itching to get to it. I'll probably have to try and read it in small bits on my breaks at work tomorrow... well, if my brain is awake enough after tonight's late movie, lol.
