Wow. I didn’t think this series could get any better, but it just did. Hunting Ground was amazing!! I love the way Briggs writes. There’s this ease to it and it’s always just a natural progression of the storyline. It’s never pulling or straining. All the characters continue to grow in a way that is gradual, but still very evident.And Anna is the perfect example of that. I remember complaining back in the Alpha &Omega novella that she was too skittish and broken. But she has come so far in such a short time and yet it doesn’t seem like she suddenly grew a pair and is capable of manhandling all the Alpha werewolves at once. She’s grown in a gradual way that makes her success at getting over her past a personal accomplishment and one that opens opportunities for her to love someone….someone like Charles.
What I love about this series is the romance. It’s not perfect where Anna and Charles find each other and fall desperately in love with each other and they love happily ever after. THE END. No, not here. Both of them are unsure and probably a little scared and that makes the romance between these two all the more interesting. A light touch in human form or a slight nudge in wolf form makes the relationship fascinating because they are learning each other slowly. It’s just great to read.
And then there’s all the wolf politics! Wow, I wasn’t expecting half of the twists that Briggs pulled in this one! I was completely taken aback and it was definitely one I’d like to pick up again soon. With all the fae, vampires, and werewolves in this one, I’m sure there’s something there for everyone!
