Publisher's Summary

The new Charles and Anna novel
Praised as "the perfect blend of action, romance, suspense and paranormal" (Rex Robot Reviews), the Alpha and Omega novels transport listeners 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' 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.

What the heck?

The reader is the same for this title as for the other three in the series, and while I don't like him as much as the reader of the Mercy novels, he's been ok. But for some bizarre reason, in this book he's read the entire thing like he's trying to pitch his voice an octave below where it belongs. "Gravelly" and "breathy" don't begin to cover it. It's like he's auditioning for a satire of batman. It would be annoying enough on its own, but after three books hearing the characters speak in a different way, suddenly changing their voices is SO annoying. Boo.

Disappointed in the narration

What made the experience of listening to Dead Heat the most enjoyable?

I prefer the Mercy Thompson narrator. I was uncomfortable with Holter Graham's voices for women and, particularly, children. I love this series, so was fed-up and disappointed. However, still worth buying for the characters and story.


What did you like best about this story?

The main characters.


How did the narrator detract from the book?

Depiction of women and children,


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The rescue would have been moving if it wasn't for the child's voice. Dreadful.


Any additional comments?

I'm so glad that Audible is selling more books by Patricia Briggs. I hope the complete two series will appear soon.
