Dead Heat - Patricia Briggs

For once, mated werewolves Charles and Anna are not traveling because of Charles’s role as his father’s enforcer. This time, their trip to Arizona is purely personal. Or at least their visit 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 have started a cold war with humanity that's about to heat up—and Charles and Anna are in the crossfire. 

My thoughts
This reminded me once again  that I wanna read Fire touched *checks, omg so expensive, fine I will wait until 2017 noooooooo*

I miss Bran, he was not in it enough...I like Bran. Yup ;)
But I must say, I can never remember where I stand with people, but Charles, yes, I like that wolf. Did I always? Who knows, I am too tired to check my old reviews. Brother wolf is a softie too.

Charles and Anna go to meet an old friend.
Oh uh, the Fae are up to no good. Stuff is going down! They are in the middle of something so they investigate.

I do think the previous book was stronger, I remember that one as amazing, so this one is not equal to that one. But it is Briggs, which means it is good. She is good, always.

Conclusion:
I have not really said anything when I come to think of it. ..oh how I ramble on.
Anyway, yes read the book, but you HAVE to read them in order. SO no starting with this one.

eh. Not bad, not amazing either

  2. Charles and Anna and Bran *swoon*. I am actually a bigger fan of this series than Mercy (and I love me some Mercy)

  3. I always want more Bran! Bran needs his own book just so we can all spend more time with him:)

    1. Oh my library does not have these, and it is Briggs so I need the book on my shelf, and that means waiting a year

  9. I felt similarly that the previous books, especially Fair Game, was just SO GOOD that this one felt alright but not amazing in comparison. The new Mercy book is great, though, so I hope you get to it soon!

  10. I need to try this series! And definitely catch up on the Mercy series!

  11. I thought the themes in this one came together better -- family and death and parenthood. The previous one had a tighter plot.

    My library will give me Fire Touched in about two weeks. But my library is awesome :-)

    1. I liked the tighter plot in the last one, but yes the themes worked well together in this one.

      Ohhh. I mean I'd totally read it if they had it, but I need to OWN it ;)

  12. Haven't started her books yet... I do own 2 books though...

  13. Laughing at your review, you crack me up. I read the first one and must read on.

  14. It's good you're reading this series too, because I hear the this and Mercy Thompson really complement each other, so you should be all set going into Fire Touched. It makes me think I should start this series too! I've always wanted to, but haven't yet found the time.

    1. I do confess that I do not like that, cos what if I had hated this series, but had to read it cos of that...not cool

  15. LOL! I feel your pain. Waiting is the hardest thing with this series and her other one. Love Bran, too.
    Charles is such a softie for his Anna. ;)

    1. I was not as big a fan, it took until book 3 to really love it

  17. There is never enough Bran in any book. I actually like Alpha & Omega just a smidge more than Mercy Thompson. I just love Charles and Anna, and yes, Brother Wolf. This one was a little bit sad.

      But more than Mercy, whaaaat ;) Nah, mMercy is my girl

  18. I'm gonna tackle her Mercy series first before I jump into this one. Everyone seems to love both series a lot.

  19. These books have the oddest looking covers, I swear. But heck, Patricia Briggs is an awesome author that I don't really care. Lol.

    1. HA, but yes you are right, something is always slightly off

  20. I love Charles and Anna so much! This one wasn't as strong as the previous but still good. I wish I could get you Fire Touched NOW!

    ReplyDelete
  21. There is never enough Bran. He is my favorite character and I keep hoping that he would have a bigger role in one of the books but no such luck. Happily the books are great regardless. :)

    About Fire Touched. If you like to read in print, is it important which cover the book has? I happen to have an extra copy of Fire Touched, but it's the UK cover and the weirdly big paperback version. If you'd like to have it anyway, I could send it to you.

    1. Braaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaan.
      maybe one day or not. But I hope for one day.

      Omg for reeeels! Yes! Of course I would love that.
      Sure I love some covers but in the end I do not care as long as I have the book.

      I hope you see this since I can't see any info

      Delete
    2. Yes, let's hope so. :P

      Great! Just let me know where to send it. :)

      Oh, sorry, my e-mail is musmekipi at gmail dot com
