Hunting Ground is the second book in the Alpha & Omega series by Patricia Briggs. This review may contain spoilers.
‘Anna Latham didn’t know how complicated life could be until she became a werewolf. And until she was mated to Charles Cornick, the son — and enforcer — of Bran, the leader of the North American werewolves, she didn’t know how dangerous it could be either…
Anna and Charles have just been enlisted to attend a summit to present Bran’s controversial proposition: that the wolves should finally reveal themselves to humans. But the most feared Alpha in Europe is dead set against the plan — and it seems like someone else might be too. When Anna is attacked by vampires using pack magic, the kind of power only werewolves should be able to draw on, Charles and Anna must combine their talents to hunt down whoever is behind it all — or risk losing everything…’
Much like the last book the points of view were mainly from Anna and Charles, with some different points of view from other key important characters from this story.
What I like about this book is how much character development we’re shown. Anna? She’s had quite a bit of character growth within the time of where Cry Wolf, and Hunting Ground picked up. And while the story progressed we see exactly just how much she’s grown! Which I really love and appreciate that we the reader were able to see it.
Anna has improved so much! She’s so much stronger. Anna can still be pretty apprehensive of things, but she’s healing and coming out of her shell! I’m so proud of her! — I love seeing Anna be more of herself in this book. I loooove how she’s slowly but surely working through and overcoming her fears.
And Charles? I love that we’re being shown a side to Charles that we wouldn’t otherwise see. And I love that Charles can be soft towards Anna, and that he takes everything about Anna into consideration. I love that the two of them are getting to know each other more, and I love that they’re in-love!!!!
Anna isn’t the young woman we saw in Cry Wolf, and I’m glad that Anna’s character is growing.
I can’t wait to read Fair Game!
I ended up giving Hunting Ground 4 of 5 stars.
