Just read the Alpha and Omega short story before starting the novel, Cry Wolf which the short story serves as an introduction to the characters ( )

I started out liking the books about Kate more but Charles and Anna have really grown on me. These two are just such a perfect match and I love to read how they deal with everything they encounter. Great story I was kept guessing the whole time. I cannot wait for the next Alpha and Omega story. ( )

This book is a collection of four novellas by four different authors, each dealing with supernatural creatures of some sort in a modern setting, and with a strong romantic component; they all fall into the "sexy urban fantasy" category. I read it because the first tale, "Alpha and Omega" by [a:Patricia Briggs|40563|Patricia Briggs|https://d.gr-assets.com/authors/1228867484p2/40563.jpg], is the (absolutely necessary) introduction to the series of the same name, a companion to the excellent Mercy Thompson novels. I enjoyed how that story, and the novels that follow, reference some of the same events that take place in the Mercy books, but provide a very different point of view, and a more detailed look at some of the minor characters from that world. Four stars, and worth reading.

After reading that story I set this book aside, because the other novellas looked like they'd be terrible, given their back cover blurbs. But after reading a few other books, I picked this back up and realized that the blurb for Briggs's story was terrible, too, so decided to give the rest a shot. And I'm mostly pleased that I did. [a:Eileen Wilks|46540|Eileen Wilks|https://d.gr-assets.com/authors/1234989216p2/46540.jpg]'s story "Inhuman" is part of her "World of the Lupi" series, which I probably won't read, since it appears to be pretty strong romance, which I don't have a lot of interest in, but the story was engaging, and I'm happy to know the series is out there should I ever feel the desire.

The third story, "Buying Trouble" by [a:Karen Chance|38066|Karen Chance|https://d.gr-assets.com/authors/1274779703p2/38066.jpg], doesn't appear to be part of a series, but I rather wish it were. Mages, fae, gangsters, and supernatural warfare combine with the stereotypical I-mustn't-be-attracted-to-him-but-can't-help-myself romantic angle in a very interesting way, and there's a good dose of "you are more than you know" for the lead character, which made me want to read more.

However, the last novella, "Mona Lisa Betwining" by [a:Sunny|11859|Sunny|https://d.gr-assets.com/authors/1237065699p2/11859.jpg], was just awful. Maybe if I were more into romance of the Harlequin variety, or if I were already familiar with the series it falls into the middle of, I'd have hated it less. But the first person narrative is lumbering and clumsy, trying too hard to explain the entire world, the plot seems like the worst kind of wish fulfillment fantasy, and the narrator goes from grieving over her dead lover on the first page to lusting after the next by the tenth. Bah. I couldn't be bothered to finish it.

Overall summary: If I were rating the stories separately, the first and third tales would get four stars each, the second a respectable three, and the last just one star, because one cannot give zero. ( )

ss "Alpha and Omega"
This is the prequel for the "Alpha and Omega" series and you really should read it before starting "Cry Wolf" since it gives you the background of Anna and Charles' story. It's the same universe of Mercy Thompson's series (but the attention here is focused on her old pack) so you'll meet some characters you know already but that's pretty much the only thing they have in common. The female character is very different from Mercy and the tone of the story is somehow darker. The story is told by different pov, not only Anna's, and sometimes could be a little confusing (more so in "Cry Wolf") but all in all, if you don't expect it to be like Mercy's books, it's a good story and an interesting start for a new series.
