Review: Burn Bright by Patricia Briggs

Title: Burn Bright
Author: Patricia Briggs
Series: Book Five in the Alpha & Omega Series
Published By: Berkley (Ace) (March 6, 2018)
Genre: Urban Fantasy
Source: ARC Provided by the Publisher (in exchange for an honest review)
My Rating: 4.5 Stars!


Book Description:
Mated werewolves Charles Cornick and Anna Latham face a threat like no other--one that lurks too close to home...

They are the wild and the broken. The werewolves too damaged to live safely among their own kind. For their own good, they have been exiled to the outskirts of Aspen Creek, Montana. Close enough to the Marrok's pack to have its support; far enough away to not cause any harm.


With their Alpha out of the country, Charles and Anna are on call when an SOS comes in from the fae mate of one such wildling. Heading into the mountainous wilderness, they interrupt the abduction of the wolf--but can't stop blood from being shed. Now Charles and Anna must use their skills--his as enforcer, hers as peacemaker--to track down the attackers, reopening a painful chapter in the past that springs from the darkest magic of the witchborn...







Oh how I have missed Charles and Anna!

I love this series and the very fact that it coincides with my beloved Mercy Thompson series just makes it all the better. 

I loved being immersed back into this world and more importantly getting to see Charles and Anna together again. The bond and relationship they have it amazing and the love and understanding between them even more so. I love that they make each other stronger and while they want to protect each other, they also don't smother or hold the other one back from being the best they can be. It truly is one of my most favorite relationships in the genre and I adore them.

The mystery in this was intriguing and again, I loved that it kind of went hand in hand with what is happening in her Mercy Thompson series without it feeling like it is the same story or the same exact drama. It's a separate situation with a mystery that is all tied together and I love it. It was so fascinating and so much fun. 

Getting to learn  more about the wildings and their purpose and place in the pack was even more entertaining than I imagined it would be. I loved seeing Asil step up and help out so much. He really is one of my favorite misfit characters. 

Truly a wonderful story full of rich history, not only about the werewolves but about magic and Charles people, and just so much more. I truly loved it all, right up to the satisfying and thrilling end and was not ready for it to be over. I can't wait for the next book, I'm so ready for it!

  9. I remember when I read the first Mercy book hearing about Charles, and I've heard the spinoff adventures of charlie and Anna are pretty good! I love the sound of this one, and Charles and Anna sound amazing together.

  12. Will I be lost if I am not reading the other series? I'm behind in this one. Read two, have the third. I need to get to it because this sounds excellent!

    1. You won't be lost if you aren't reading the other series but definitely read all of these in order. Since you have read at least one of the others, then you will know who the people are. It might be a bit spoilery though for the other series but nothing too bad.

  19. I love the mature, loving relationship Anna and Charles have, too! They are stronger together. I think there might be more with the witches to come after that ending, don't you? Wonderful review! :)

    1. Yes I definitely got that impression as well! Plus I think it would make sense with the Mercy series as well for something big to happen with the witches next.

  20. It is fun when the different worlds collide a little. I read the first in the series then got sidetracked. I need to get back to them!
