4.5 stars. This new adventure from the Mercy Thompson-related Alpha and Omega series (really, if you read one you have to read both, the plots are that intertwined) finds Anna and Charles traveling to the California wilderness with another werewolf, Tag, to investigate a mass disappearance of a remote town that has something to do with the long-ago, dark history of their alpha's mate, Leah. It's a fascinating story but, fair warning, the horror vibes are pretty strong with this one. There are so ...more

I don't like that much the urban fantasy genre with its thick skinned heroines and its outmoded furry or blood thirsty creatures. But I am a huge fan of Anna and Charles. Alpha and Omega defies the laws of the genre, or rather, redefines them. I like how gentle, generous and caring Anna is, which doesn't mean she is weak or naive, rather the contrary. I also like that she is not a great beauty or a drama queen with a harem of men at her disposal. Above all, I find very original the whole concept ...more

Wow, this was intense!!!!

Again, the author wrote an unputdownable story. Full of magic, and also some very fascinating revelations. And as always, whenever I read a new book by Patricia Briggs I get completely sucked into the story and world, and the wait for the next book seems awfully long.

Also Anne was my favorite character this time. She impressed the hell out of me!

Anna and her husband Charles, both werewolves, are informed by the FBI that someone is squatting on pack land in northern California, and that something strange is going on there. They travel down from Montana with another pack member, and find that there are no people left, but it's evident that something horrible has happened. Were witches involved? Are any of the residents still alive? What kind of malevolent spirits are Charles and Anna sensing? This is the kind of book that transports the r ...more

What too say, where to even begin. I won’t say much but I will say this, in this installment of Charles and Anna story I found hope renewed. The last two installments of this series I struggled with because too be honest they were slow and I felt deeply as if something were missing. But Wild Signs captivated me left me with a longing I haven’t felt since Cry Wolf. I’ll never get over your ability to transport the reader into a whole new world, bring a battle to the forefront with such visionary ...more

This Anna and Charles adventure told the story I’ve been wanting to hear for a while. It actually had several revelations and set the stage for lots more to happen—in both the larger world and personally for Anna and Charles— in future books. Which is great, because I love this series and don’t want it to end. I can’t wait to see how the events of this book affect the next Mercy book, because one thing at least definitely will.

When the entire population of a tiny town in California goes missing, it doesn't seem like something Charles and Anna would need to investigate. After all, it's not even in their state.

However, it turns out that the land that those missing people had settled on belongs to the mate of their pack Alpha and that means it is their business to find out what happened those those forty people.

Patricia Briggs' books are always must buy/must-read immediately for me. So as soon as I received an ARC of Wild Sign, I dove straight in to the exclusion of everything else.

The FBI reaches out to the werewolves for help when an isolated community in Northern California disappears without a trace. The Pack owns the land. It was purchased after Bran rescued Leah from a supernatural horror centuries earlier. Worried that it's back, he sends Charles, Anna, and Tag to investigate.

Wild Sign is the sixth book in the Alpha & Omega series, a spinoff featuring a secondary character from the Mercy Thompson universe, Charles, and his wife, Anna. At a half dozen books (not counting the dozen or so in Mercy's series) you would expect the story to slow down or devolve, but NOT SO!

Wild Sign was addictive and intriguing and more than a little creepy at times. (Good, in my book.)

The mystery was eerie and excellent and readers will be relieved to learn more about Leah's backstory and

Alpha and Omega books are comfort food for me. Wild Sign did not disappoint.
The FBI requests Anna and Charles help when an off-grid town disappears in the mountains of California. They are looking for answers. Bran sends Anna, Charles and Tag to check it out... because more than 200 years ago, that's were he first meet and mated Leah. And if her monster has survived, then it might take more than werewolf power to put it down.

Why I started this book: I jumped at the chance of an ARC for this book and was thrilled to get it.

Why I finished it: I am a loyal and eager Brigg

Anna and Charles receive a visit from the FBI agent they met in one of the previous books. It seems that there were people living on land that is owned by the Marrok’s wife but they have now all disappeared. Because this far enough away from Montana, the pack didn’t know about any of it happening. Once the FBI tipped them off they pretty much stayed out of it for the rest of the book. Anna and Charles head out and Tag comes along as backup. There are several references to past events in previou ...more

(I received a copy of this book through NetGalley for an honest review.)

I enjoy everything that Patricia Briggs writes, and this book is no exception. I love Charles. He is my book boyfriend, and Anna is a particularly strong character because she is thought to be the lowest of the low and yet is especially strong. The ending of this novel is surprisingly wonderful and sets up the next several novels. I'm really excited to see what happens next in this series! I also loved how this story rounds

4.5 stars - While I love Mercy and the folks in her pack, I often miss Anna, Charles, and the rest of Bran's pack in the intervals between Alpha & Omega books. Wild Sign is almost everything fans could want from an installment of this series though I did have to go back and look at some of the previous books to keep up with this one.

Wild Sign takes Anna and Charles (and Tag) away from the pack for this book. An interesting setting and more than a little creepiness make for an atmospheric book.

Where do I start? From beginning to end Wild Sign BLEW ME AWAY! Just when I thought I was surprised, another plot twist had me reeling and rereading not quite sure I had read it correctly! Fans of Ms.Briggs are going to love this newest addition to the Alpha and Omega universe that ties up some loose ends nicely while also dangling some more. You'll have to preorder this one guys, you'll need it available at midnight to dive in!

I’m so glad I got to read an ARC of this book!
I often claim I don’t read romances. and yet... I’m just going to tell myself this is an urban fantasy that happens to have a strong romantic subplot. Let me have my illusions ok?
I do particularly like a romantic subplot where you can really feel like the characters are together because they reasonably want to be and not for the convenience of the plot. This series and her other series both do a particularly good job of making couples the series are

I was very grateful to receive an Advanced Reader's Copy of Wild Sign. I'm a big Patricia Briggs fan and I've been looking forward to reading this title since it was slated for publication. Anna and Charles visit the rural wilds of Northern California to face an extremely creepy villain. The plot twists and turns in different directions that I didn't anticipate. There is lots of fun sexy time between Anna and Charles, which is always a plus. The book moved along at a good clip and had a pretty e ...more

Book six in Patricia Brigg's Alpha and Omega series is a wonderful addition to this addictive world!

Music is an integral part of Anna and Charles Cornick. Their lives are woven together through the music of wolf song and the history and mysteries found within songs. When reports of a small town going missing on property owned by Leah, the Marrok's mate, they are almost caught in the song of the forest luring them into danger.

Something has awaken in this remote region of California that even dra
