Anna Latham didn’t know how complicated life could be until she became a werewolf. And until she was mated to Charles Cornick, the son — and enforcer — of Bran, the leader of the North American werewolves, she didn’t know how dangerous it could be either...
Anna and Charles have just been enlisted to attend a summit to present Bran’s controversial proposition: that the wolves should finally reveal themselves to humans. But the most feared Alpha in Europe is dead set against the plan — and it seems like someone else might be too. When Anna is attacked by vampires using pack magic, the kind of power only werewolves should be able to draw on, Charles and Anna must combine their talents to hunt down whoever is behind it all — or risk losing everything...
What I liked: I've finally come to peace with this narrator. Mr Graham is excellent at it but his different voices didn't always ring true. Either I've gotten used to him or he's improved. Either way it's a win-win situation.
I like Hunting Ground because Anna and Charles seem more of a couple since everything about their mating happened so fast. I'm finally seeing the deeper part of Charles and not just a somber, pack trouble-fixer. He sincerely cares about Anna and it shows. His caring and the Marrock's trust have given Anne some much needed confidence.
It's different reading this perspective of the wolves "coming out". I'm used to the Mercy Thompson series where they are already out and trying to keep things calm. Ms Briggs also puts enough mystery into the reader trying to figure out who are the good guys vs the bad guys. Technically in this series you see more of the down side of the wolves. I mean, they aren't purely good in all things. They are most or less accepting of things needing to be done that humans wouldn't understand.
The characters are still developing and the world building is great. I am glad I know some of the world by reading the Mercy Thompson series because it's not front and center in this series yet.
What I didn't like: I did have a very hard time keeping track of all the characters in this story. On my Kindle, I highlight different names for reference but even though you can make notes on the audio version it's not very convenient.
Overall, a very good story with not only the wolves but more characters that are "others" which makes it fun.
Highly Recommend (start at the very beginning though)
