Please note: These are returns from our distributor, so the dust jackets, especially, might show some scuffing. However, given the price the Alpha and Omega is bringing on the secondary market, you're unlikely to find a better deal out there. Limit two copies per person, household, or intergalactic entity.
Anna, four years a werewolf , raped, beaten, half-starved and handed from one male to another, places a call from Chicago to the wilds of Montana. She reaches the Marrok, North America’s werewolf ruler, telling him she’s seen a boy, one reported missing and possibly injured. He was in a cage her pack’s Alpha keeps for confining new werewolves.
The Marrok says that his enforcer is flying from Montana to O’Hare. Anna meets the plane, and, Charles, enforcer, as well as the Marrok’s oldest son, insists on staying with her. He has seen she is not the Submissive she thinks she is. Charles is a supreme Alpha, and she is his antithesis, a rare Omega; her very presence lowers tension, calms and soothes. Despite centuries as a Solitary, Charles would wed young Anna. His brother wolf, he says, has already taken her as his mate.
There are, as investigation and confrontation reveal, reasons both for the capture of the boy and for what has been done to Anna. It’s a surprisingly tender story.
Limited: 1000 signed hardcover copies
From Publishers Weekly:
"This terrific little story, originally published in a 2007 anthology, is the first in Patricia Briggs’s Alpha and Omega series...Spare writing and strong descriptions will entice readers to continue following Anna and Chance to two forthcoming novels."
