    1. 4 stars!Fair Game is the third book in the Alpha & Omega series which features Anna and Charles. I love this series! Maybe not quite as much as the Mercy Thompson series, but close. It’s for sure one of the best UF series I’ve read. This third book drew me in from the start. It seemed to be more fast-paced than the others and the story really kept my interest all the way through. Charles is having a rough go of things. Being ‘the enforcer’ is getting more difficult for him, especiall [...]

    2. I love this urban fantasy world Patricia Briggs has created. She has expanded it over two series, her Mercy Thompson series and this one, Alpha & Omega. In this series we explore the complex relationship of Charles and Anna. Charles is the only known born werewolf, and son of the Marrock (Alpha of ALL werewolves of North America, Bran). Anna is an Omega, a wolf that can calm the fiercest of tempers and is also strong enough to look the Marrock in the eye. Of course, her human appearance make [...]

    3. ★★★★★ & a Wow! It took me awhile to write this review; the fabulous Ms. Patricia Briggs had wowed me beyond words. Dare I say this is her best work to date? I guess I can’t, since I haven’t read everything she’s written – yet! But, I’m willing to place that bet.With the third installment of her Alpha and Omega series, Ms. Briggs has proven she is a master of her craft and draws us completely into her paranormal milieu of werewolves, fae, vampires, ghosts, witches, humans, [...]

    4. 10 starsAWESOME, INCREDIBLE BOOK!This is, by far, the best in the series for me. I can't even begin to explain how much I enjoyed it. It takes place after River Marked. Anna and Charles have been together for a year or so, and we see Charles's job as an enforcer is getting to him. He has killed too many, too often and is closing himself off, even from his mate. Bran decides it might help if he sends Charles to Boston, to investigate a series of deaths stretching back 30 years. Giving him a chanc [...]

    5. 1st read: July 2012OMFG! I iz speechless here! That Gray Lord Prince was awesome! I so didn't expect that! The ending was EXPLOSIVE! Exactly what the Fae did to the prejudiced humans, if you ask meThis was a great installment by Patricia Briggs. I loved(never was good a literary stuff so I use bluet-points:D):-Anna: her growth from the scared wolf from the prequel to this book is a lovely thing to watch. The way her bond with Charles and her confidence in his love for her was a very important pa [...]

    6. The prologue of this book hooked me right into the mystical and magical world that Patricia Briggs has created in her Alpha and Omega Series, where we meet a new character, FBI agent and a human named Leslie Fisher, who plays a huge role in this story. I fell in love with her immediately….“Once upon a time, there was a little girl named Leslie.” A big part of why I love this series is Charles & Anna. They have a strong bond and complement each other. But Charles is struggling with his [...]

    7. February 2018 Reread. Buddy read with Sarah and Erica.February 2017 Re-readI was thinking about this book recently, and realized that I never put in the trigger warnings that I should have:(view spoiler)[1. Rape and abuse - the victims in this book are repeatedly sodomized and while there is nothing graphic about it, there is discussion of it happening. There are also some pretty disturbing moments with the bodies left by the killers - in that the bodies were definitely tortured and disfigured w [...]

    8. I freaking loved this book! I loved the mystery, I loved Charles and Anna! I loved the glimpses of Adam and the Mercy Thompson world. Bran was amazing and Briggs gave us a good amount of Bran.Patricia Briggs has that special something that makes me feel so happy and contented to slip into her world and read any one of her books. The characters may be scary and the subject matter disturbing, but Briggs writes them in such a rich way that I wish I was there. The supernaturals in Briggs’ world ar [...]

    9. 5 stars goes without saying of course!I have a question and since I'm too bored to look it up I'll wait until some awesome GRs friend answers me Is this series going to have another book? I thought it was a trilogy but I have to admit the end felt like it left things unresolved.SoThis book begins about a year after Bran made the werewolves public. Since humans now know about shifters Bran has applied stricter rules and Charles is the one who plays the executioner, a job that has began to take it [...]

    10. *** 4 *** I think I am a bit in-love with Charles! Yes, he is my perfect alpha male:-) Smart, strong, with a sense of humor and responsibility, overprotective but also attentive and loving - what is not to love???? However, he Anna and he are the perfect couple, so I have to bow out and just enjoy their connection Connection, which in this book was under threat, mating bond damaged by guilt and self-doubt The third book in the Alpha & Omega series starts two years after Hunting Ground and it [...]

    11. 1st Read March 20142nd Read February 20163rd Read January 20174th Read February 2018Original ReviewBuddy read with AngeI have loved Charles and Anna since we first met them in Alpha & Omega and I've enjoyed seeing their relationship develop as the series has continued. They are still fairly new mates and have issues to work through on both sides but they've come a long way since they first met. Anna now trusts Charles implicitly, she knows without a doubt that he would never hurt her and she [...]

    12. Reviewed by: Rabid Reads.I'm used to the events in series installments taking place a few weeks, if not days apart, so I was a little disconcerted by the fact that FAIR GAME jumped two full years into the future. In HUNTING GROUND Bran was still contemplating bringing the werewolves out to the public, but in this audiobook it was a done deal, and Anna & Charles are now dealing with the fallout. As a result, I experienced some mild growing pains while getting up to speed; luckily I had Briggs [...]

    13. Oh Anna and Charles, I love you so much. From the very first Alpha and Omega novella, Patricia Briggs has given this hero and heroine such depth of character, that I feel like I know them. They are flawed, brave, loyal, insecure, and violent. But above and beyond all that, they always love one other.This book may be my favorite yet in the series. I was surprised at the onset to see how much time had passed since the events of Hunting Ground. While it's not spelled out precisely, it's been a few [...]

    14. I loved this but it was too easy for me to put down.  I wasn't sucked in like I was with the previous two books of this series.  It starts off not long after the end of River Marked. We even get a small phone cameo from Adam and Mercy is mentioned, YAY!!! Anyway, I liked getting to read about Charles and Anna again and see how much their mate bond has changed over the past few years.  In this book, Charles is having a lot of internal issues resulting from him being the Marrok's Wolfkill [...]

    15. Anna and Charles are easily one of the best and sweetest couples I've ever read about. Charles defines an alpha hero without being an asshole. I love that. I hate the asshole hero. It can be interesting at times, but that concept gets really old.Charles bent his head down and touched his nose to hers, closing his eyes to hide the effect of the knowledge of what he'd been doing to her-and the effect of feeling her, skin on skin, once moreI like that Briggs made a hero who respects and admires the [...]

    16. I'm just going to let you know: I CAN'T WRITE THIS REVIEW WITHOUT SPOILERS. There, you've been warned.I read, DEVOURED, this book yesterday. I was completely exhausted, emotionally wrung out and completely without a clue as to how I could possibly review a book that is so good, so emotional, so deep that I didn't even comprehend how deep it was until I slept on it spectacular. Really - I'm just a peon in the world of greatness that is Patricia Briggs. The world is now aware of the existence of t [...]

    17. Wow! What a ride! Patricia Briggs proves once again that she is a master story-teller. The world she creates has me actually believing that there are werewolves, witches, fae, and the like living amongst us. I love how she incorporates magic and the spirit world into her books. The third book in her Alpha and Omega series, Fair Game was well worth the wait. In this book, Anna worries about Charles. She’s afraid that his enforcer role is causing him to burn out. Anna is no longer the meek, skit [...]

    18. 3.5 starsFair Game, the third book in the Alpha & Omega series picks up a few years after Hunting Ground. I was quite thrown off with this because it didn't read like Charles and Anna had been together that long, it was like reading about a couple who were still in the early stages of their relationship. It doesn't help matters that Charles is pushing Anna away and ignoring the mate-bond between them. Charles having been Bran's executioner for years begins to breakdown mentality. To save his [...]

    19. Posted on Under the CoversWhat happens when a werewolf is forced to kill others of his kind without any sort of break? What toll does it take on the werewolf and subsequently his mate? These questions are asked in FAIR GAME, the third and highly anticipated book in the Alpha & Omega series by Patricia Briggs. FAIR GAME starts out with a low point between Anna and Charles’ relationship. Anna feels detached from her mate, Charles. Her father-in-law, Bran, is now making Charles hunt out-of-co [...]

    20. I know this is probably getting old now but favourite so far in the series! It was full of action, mystery, romance and a certain sexy werewolf named Charles Cornick. It wouldn't be an exaggeration to say that I want lots of sex and babies with Charles, especially the sex part. But, apart from the sexy Charles it was a good book, the mystery was interesting and I was in it to see the serial killer get caught almost as much as I was for Anna and Charles. This book is set a few years after Hunting [...]

    21. The first chapter is available. It's incredible. (view spoiler)[Anna verbally faces down Bran. Werewolves tremble at his feet and she'll still standing. Yay! Anna's grown brass balls. LOL (hide spoiler)] It has me salivating for the book. For people who haven't read the series, you must give it a try. It's an urban fantasy with romance, suspense, and mystery. No love triangles or angst. Solid couple. Good mystery. Contemporary setting. Werewolves, vampires, and fae. patriciabriggs/books/fThis bo [...]

    22. 5 Fair Game Stars How does this series keep getting better and better? I have to say it was a little different then the last few books and I loved it. I really liked that Anna and Charles get to help the police find a serial killer. But it was more than that it was Anna taking another step in her healing. And become a strong mate for Charles too. Charles loses himself a little in this book and it’s Anna who wants to help him, but Charles won’t let her. He fights it so much and if he would ju [...]

    23. Well, it has been quite a while since we got a new release in this series, hasn’t it? It feels like I have been counting down to the release of Fair Game forever. I reread the last book, Hunting Ground, to get back into the swing of things, and it was just as awesome as I remembered. Perhaps the change in tone in the series wouldn’t have been so glaring if I hadn’t reread the second book, but I did, so it stuck out. It’s not that the new tone was bad, it was just…different.In the previ [...]

    24. It is not wise to give something old and powerful something they care about.And I am very old.Best book in the series, hands down.Charles has become the Marrok’s assassin; Anna is worried that his job is making him suffer; Bran doesn’t see what he can do about it; Adam, my one true love, comes up with a solution; The Alpha & Omega couple heads to Baltimore to work with the government on a whodunit serial murder case.When this series was first introduced, I can’t say that I didn’t lik [...]

    25. 5 "Catching a Serial Killer" Stars for the story and narration! I absolutely loved this third book in the Alpha & Omega Series! Now that the werewolves are out, they must be much more careful in their public image. That means that Charles, as the enforcer of his pack, is working overtime. Unfortunately, all this killing discipline is haunting Charles literally. Fortunately, Anna, his mate, has his back even if Charles refuses to open up the mating bond to allow her to truly hear and feel wha [...]

    26. 4.5 starsSo. Wow. I'm surprised that I liked this book as much as I did. I'm not a huge fan of forensic thrillers. I love Criminal Minds, but sometimes it's just a little too creepy and words are capable of so much more than a TV series. So I avoid them. But it's hard to avoid them when a favorite author sneaks it into her series. Sneaky, sneaky. I was able to enjoy Fair Game despite the FBI hunt for a serial killer for the same reason so many Patricia Briggs fans get frustrated with her--she's [...]

    27. Re-read February 18th 2018Hunting a serial killer in Boston is the perfect escape for Anna and Charles when the justice Charles has to mete out starts to literally haunt him. Doesn't sound like an escape, right? Trust me here. Anna knows this situation can't go on, but with Charles basically shutting her out she doesn't quite know what to do. Bran is kind of a jerk at first, but that doesn't stop Anna in her determination to help her mate, and this is how they end up in Boston. This installment [...]

    28. Aug. 2017 Audio Listen: I really loved the Audio for Fair Game. The male narrator, Holter Graham, is wonderful to hear. He brought the characters to life. It was wonderful! I suggest giving the Audiobook a try for the Alpha & Omega series. Just listen to the audio made me want to try the Mercy Thompson series in that version. Fair Game was amazing and it felt like the first time reading!

    29. People as old and powerful as he should never be given someone to love. For Anna he would destroy the world.This has easily become one of my favorite series, period. The relationship that Patricia Briggs builds, between all the characters, but especially between Charles and Anna, is stunning.Fair Game starts right on the heels of the end of River Marked, so the time-lines are finally matching up. The werewolves have come out the public, and with that the rules for werewolves have become much mor [...]
