Urban Fantasy Review: Burn Bright by Patricia Briggs

Burn Bright by Patricia Briggs (Alpha & Omega #5)


Synopsis from Goodreads
In her bestselling Alpha and Omega series, Patricia Briggs “spins tales of werewolves, coyote shifters, and magic and, my, does she do it well” (USATODAY.com). Now mated werewolves Charles Cornick and Anna Latham face a threat like no other–one that lurks too close to home…

They are the wild and the broken. The werewolves too damaged to live safely among their own kind. For their own good, they have been exiled to the outskirts of Aspen Creek, Montana. Close enough to the Marrok’s pack to have its support; far enough away to not cause any harm.

With their Alpha out of the country, Charles and Anna are on call when an SOS comes in from the fae mate of one such wildling. Heading into the mountainous wilderness, they interrupt the abduction of the wolf–but can’t stop blood from being shed. Now Charles and Anna must use their skills–his as enforcer, hers as peacemaker–to track down the attackers, reopening a painful chapter in the past that springs from the darkest magic of the witchborn…

 I don't know why it took me so long to get to the latest Briggs book?!

The flow of the story is very immersive, encompassing. Once you are in you don't want to step off the ride, and as a reader, I just wished this book was longer, as I gobbled it up in no time at all.

What was really fascinating for me were descriptions of the old werewolves: Wellesley, Asil, Hester, Jericho. They had such distinctive voices. Tormented, complex, multilayered. Leah, Bran's mate and Mercy's most unfavourite stepmom managed to surprise me here as well and made me warm up to her. That's another familiar character which forced me to reevaluate what I thought about them.

This book gave me plenty of food for thought and connected some of the more long-winded plotlines. At the same time, Charles and Anna's deep mating bond, the familiarity of the world-building made Burn Bright my comfort read and left me relaxed and not wanting to let go of its characters.

Overall, expect a fast pace, brilliant plot development and vivid characterization.

Recommended to help with winter blues.

 Ну, не знаю я, почему я так долго ждала, чтобы прочесть последнюю книгу Патриции Бриггз?!

В очень книгу погружаешься, и отрываться от этого мира совершенно не хочется. Так что книга проглатывается читателем быстро и незаметно.

Заворожило меня больше всего описание старых вервульфов - Веллезли, Хестер, Азила, Джерико. Такие у них были многослойные голоса, измученные, противоречивые самим себе, сложные. Удивила меня и  Лея - жена Брана и самая непопулярная мачеха Мерси, и заставила изменить о ней свою оценку.

Эта книга завершила несколько длинных сюжетных линий и дала мне пищу для ума. Любовь Анны и Чарльза, их непоколебимая вера друг в друга на фоне такого знакомого и уютного мира стали моей комфортной едой и принесли большое удовольствие.

Ожидайте быстрого развития сюжета и яркой характеризации, рекомендую!

In case of zombie apocalypse

Hey, guys! I feel like I should say this just in case :)
If you'd like to sponsor a fellow book addict who sometimes can't sleep at night worrying that she won't have enough books to read if internet goes down in the event of zombie apocalypse (I'm convinced it's one of the top five ways to go for human race) you can donate through Paypal to olivesandacorns at gmail dot com or buy a book through any of the links provided with my reviews which will send me a small percentage from the sale. All proceeds will go towards my enormous TBR. I will also shelter you on the remote farm in Portugal when zombie apocalypse starts provided you survive getting there. There will be books, yay?
Thank you! Love you all
