Early Book Review: Dead Heat by Patricia Briggs

Dead Heat is the forth book in the Alpha & Omega series by Patricia Briggs. It is currently schedule for release on March 3 2015. For once, mated werewolves Charles and Anna are not traveling because of Charles’s role as his father’s enforcer. Their trip to Arizona is purely personal, with Charles planning to buy Anna a horse for her birthday and to spend some time with an old friend. 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.

Dead Heat is another fantastic installment of the Alpha & Omega series. Yes, I am a huge Briggs fan, and am thrilled when the book I am reading meets or exceeds my exceptions, which this book does. Anna and Charles have a great connection and relationship, and I love that each character and the relationship grows so much during this story. Oftentimes established characters and pairings get stagnant in series because they just stay the same and face different outside forces. this is not the case here. While Anna and Charles have to solve a mystery and face a really evil big bad here, they also have to deal with personal issues and grow together. It just makes me so happy to see them continue their journey rather than leaving their relationship and personal growth behind in light of danger.

Dead Heat is not a book to pick up without having read the previous books in the series. Anna and Charles are unique characters with a powerful backstory and mythology that is important to understand how far they have come before, and the monumental movement that happens here. fans of Briggs and this series will not be disappointed with this new addition to their addiction.
