This is the discussion area for the Buddy Read of

Dead Heat (Alpha & Omega #4, Mercy Thompson World - Complete #11) by Patricia Briggs


We will start reading this book in August 17th.

Please feel free to join in and read with us at any time :)


Description:
The Alpha and Omega novels transport readers into the realm of the werewolf, where Charles Cornick and Anna Latham embody opposite sides of the shifter personality. Now, a pleasure trip drops the couple into the middle of some bad supernatural business…

For once, mated werewolves Charles and Anna are not traveling because of Charles’s role as his father’s enforcer. This time, their trip to Arizona is purely personal, as Charles plans to buy Anna a horse for her birthday. Or at least it starts out that way...

Charles and Anna soon discover that a dangerous Fae being is on the loose, replacing human children with simulacrums. The Fae’s cold war with humanity is about to heat up—and Charles and Anna are in the cross fire.

Vaughn | 3426 comments Okay I have the CD audio book in my car that I can listen to and I found the e-book on my iPad but for some reason it's only on my iPad out of my computer not on my phone it's just simply just on the iPad. Which is a little inconvenience but that's okay. So this one might take us a little longer and that's fine. At least it's a good book.

It would be so hard living for so long and watching everyone you love grow old.

Indeed. I hate how children are so often discredited. Max saw something spiritually horrid and was trying to express it and they ignored her.

Yes, kids are usually more observant than adults. She knew what she was talking about :)

How is it going? Where is everyone at?


Vaughn | 3426 comments I'm doing good. I've been driving in the car this morning so I'm listening to it. I think I'm a little less than half way. They're at the school dealing with the fetch.

This has been a slow read for me. It is more difficult to find the time to sit down and read. Still loving the story, though.

The Grey Lords are totally messed up! The poor children! Chelsea will be a handful for Hosteen...Just like Mercy was for Bran. It is sad about Joseph and the loss that will bring to Charles. He is still struggling with his role as enforcer and as mate to Anna. I think Anna and Charles would make good parents but their roles in the pack would not be conducive to parenthood. I like that Anna has been putting her new found power to good use. Teaching old dogs that she isn't a push over.

I would have loved to learn more about Chelsea after she was changed. She was very dominant.

It's funny that the CNTRP agents who were supposed to be fay experts had never actually had experience with the fay.

Are either of you in the path of Laura?

Kids are back in school! It's going okay so far. We'll see how long it lasts. I've seen a lot of schools canceling after a few days.


Vaughn | 3426 comments I'm safe. Not to NC till Saturday. Our school system started school virtually here mostly. Our colleges started but many have head massive outbreaks so they are sending kids home and closing compasses.

I thought you were somewhere in that general area, but I couldn't remember where :) I'm in Iowa...No worries about hurricanes!

We had the option of going virtual, but both of my kids wanted to go back. I don't think it's going to last long, though. I expect them to close the schools in a couple of weeks.


Vaughn | 3426 comments You can never tell with NC, cause we get a little of everything. I do appreciate you asking I do think Leigh in in the past though.

We were on the East side so we had wind and tornadoes. Wednesday we had 4 Tornado warnings. We had some family stay with us. They were in the direct path. Their area was completely devastated. Praise God! My family that lives in that area sustained minimal damage.


Vaughn | 3426 comments OMG! I'm glad your all are safe

Yes, their expert was part fay which made him an expert.


Vaughn | 3426 comments I finished this book. There was so much going on in this one. We got to see a little back story on Charles.

I finally finished. I liked this one but it wasn't my favorite. I found it to be slow. While I love horses so of that detail just dragged. I wanted to know more about Chelsea, as well.

I would love a book where all the characters have to work together....Mercy and Adam, Charles and Anna, and of course Bran.
