Title: Burn Bright
Author: Patricia Briggs
Series: Alpha & Omega #5
Charles and Ann have been put in charge of the pack while Bran is off helping to rescue Mercy. During that time they find that someone is targeting the wildlings, and that a traitor is helping them.
This was a very fascinating book because we get a deeper look at the Marrok’s pack and some of the dangerous wolves in it. While I love that we have seen a lot of Asil and Tag in previous books, I have always wanted to learn more about the other crazies in the pack and this book gives a great introduction to a few of them. I really liked the wildling Wellesley and hope we see more of him in future books.
In this one we also finally get to see what kind of powerhouse Anna will be in the future. She is finally learning to control and use her Omega abilities, without targeting everyone in a room. I really love how much Anna has grown in her confidence and self-worth since the first book. She still suffers from PTSD from her past though, which is shown in this book.
The most surprising thing about this book though was Leah. She has always been the aggressive and mean alpha female of the pack, who not even her own mate Bran really likes. But in this one we see that she truly cares about the pack, and how it impacts Bran. She is a tough female and this book changed my feelings about her.
Overall, this was a great addition to the series. I love all the changes we have seen with these characters over the past couple of books, especially Anna. I can’t wait to see what is going to happen in the next book, especially since the pack suffered some loss and betrayal in this one.
Trigger Warnings: Anna was beaten and raped repeatedly in the past and suffers from PTSD because of it.
