Charles and Anna are on the hunt for a rogue werewolf in the Montana mountains. The creature has morphed into something so dark that it kills everything in its path: deer, elk, grizzlies…humans. But the wolf is the creature of something far more powerful. One of Charles and Anna’s own pack harbors a centuries-old secret that has come back to haunt him—and wreak vengeance on those around him. Charles and Anna—unaware of the truth—are two innocents who stand in the way. But even as members of their pack rally around them, Anna’s rare power comes into its own—and is unleashed…

    Well, what can I say….I love Patricia Briggs. Lets start out with the fact that her worlds are amazing to begin with so as fans, these graphic novels are pure enjoyment. That being said, I’m a big fan of Dan Dos Santos, whose covers symbolize Patricia Briggs. So to go from that awesome representation to the graphics found in this and the previous volume, yes the fangirl in me isn’t as happy. There were a few pages that captured emotions really well, but in the back of my mind they felt a bit la Well, what can I say….I love Patricia Briggs.

Awesome job! We get more of Asil in this one, which was nice to see especially after recently reading FROST BURNED and seeing his cameo appearance in that series. Anna was the big game changer in this episode as she is starting to find her strength. These are great for both long time fans of the series, but also for newbies to get a real taste of Ms. Briggs world and characters. You won’t be sorry you pick them up either way! *ARC provided by publisher

    The novel from which this graphic novel was taken is Cry Wolf; the novel is far superior both in storyline and in visual imagery (my imagination). The characters are not as handsome as they're meant to be. Plus, Anna is blonde instead of brown-haired. Bran is ugly and not nearly young-looking enough, and his hair looks like plastic. The only character I liked was Walter Rice with the lovely beard.

    This set of graphic novels just isn't working for me. I love the Alpha & Omega books by Patricia Briggs, but the translation into graphic novel format is problematic. The narrative is very choppy, and there's not enough explanation of the very involved plotlines to have them all make sense. My main complaint, however, is with the illustrations. The style chosen is so cartoon-like that the characters are practically lost.

I'm all for artistic expression, but Anna in the graphic novels is just big hair and big boobs, with weird facial expressions and none of the charm of Anna from the books. Charles seems to change from page to page, and certainly doesn't have the stature or presence I'd expect. Some of the characters are rather indistinguishable, and I really didn't like the portrayals of Bran and Samuel. I read the two Alpha & Omega graphic novels out of curiosity, to see how they'd work in this format. The short answer is, not very well.

I still view these graphic novels as a compliment to the full novels, but this volume does a pretty impressive job of condensing the plot both through Patty's original dialog, and Todd Herman's deft illustrations. I especially liked how tortured Asil was drawn (great to get to see so much of the character since he crosses over so prominently in FROST BURNED, the most recent Mercy Thompson novel).  This volume is a no brainer for fans of Patricia Briggs, but more than that, it's a real treat for graphic novel fans too.

    I read this immediately after finishing the first volume. Much of my issues with the first and second volume are the same. I don't want to have the exact same review as for Volume One, so I'll go in a different direction. While the illustrations didn't work for me as far as most of my favorite characters' faces (Charles, Samuel, Bran), I did think they capture the menace of that little ball of nastiness, Mariposa quite well.

Walter's story also drew me in, although I pictured him with gray hair instead of red hair as depicted. The illustrations do lack clarity somewhat on the storyline. If I hadn't read this book previous to reading the graphic novel, I think I would have been be kind of lost and confused. You don't really get a lot on Bran's back story and how he was worried about being susceptible to magic again. One of my absolute favorite scenes from the book doesn't have the same powerful resonance in this version, and part of it was omitted. I cry at that loss. I'm still at the point where I feel that 3.5/5.0 stars is probably as high as I can rate this one. Good, but disappointing in comparison to the prose version. Glad I read it, even though it doesn't quite measure up. Will I read more Patricia Briggs graphic novels? Heck yeah! I just hope the illustrations are better in the next ones I read.

    I really like how this graphic novel closely follows the book, but didn't always care for how things were drawn, mostly because things aren't as I envisioned, not that I could do any better.

    After reading volume one, I had to jump right into this one! I am glad both were available at my local library! :-) Asil and Mariposa were strong characters. I’d read other books and short stories with Asil, So I was finally glad to get his backstory. Well crafted, Patricia Briggs! And the artwork was once again absolutely beautiful and fully complemented and enhance the plot.

    The art is lackluster, and the adaptation adds nothing to the story. It removes much of the complexity. I'm honestly not sure what the point was of making these. To be clear, the one star rating is only for the adaptation, the original novel is really really good.

    I was super shocked to find this at the Dollar Tree, admittedly I read thru this without having read thru the first one, but I still enjoyed this one. I liked the art and that it's about werewolves and witches.

    I’m not even really sure what I have read, or if the author even read the source material. I’m all for creative license but this felt like it jumped the shark a bit.

    Note: This review encompasses both v. 1 and v. 2 and is copied to both. I'm not a regular graphic novel reader, but for a favorite author, it becomes a must read. I found this graphic version of Cry Wolf just a delight to my visual senses. The storyline wasn't bad either though I will warn other readers that there is some flashback stuff that can make things confusing if you're not paying close attention. I won't say you have to read the novel first, but I think without having already read Cry Wo Note: This review encompasses both v. 1 and v. 2 and is copied to both. I'm not a regular graphic novel reader, but for a favorite author, it becomes a must read. I found this graphic version of Cry Wolf just a delight to my visual senses. The storyline wasn't bad either though I will warn other readers that there is some flashback stuff that can make things confusing if you're not paying close attention. I won't say you have to read the novel first, but I think without having already read Cry Wolf the novel then I would have been lost in places particularly during the flashbacks. Others who are regular graphic book readers probably would fare better. The graphic work is done by three different artists. The cover art, issue covers, and the story pages are all separate artists. The work is exquisite and I loved how facial expression, body language and movement were vividly portrayed so that words were almost unnecessary in places. Briefly, the storyline begins just after Charles Cornick, mystic werewolf and son of the Alpha of all alphas and an alpha wolf in his own right, brings his new mate, Anna Latham back to his home town in the Montana wilderness so that she can continue to recover from the abuse she was dealt in her old pack and they can adjust to their new mating. Anna is a rare omega wolf and doesn't even no how special she is because of the way her old pack kept her ignorant and abused. Charles knows that things will take time since it was his wolf and her wolf that began the mate bond and not their human sides. Anna doesn't know the full extent of who and what he is as his dad's enforcer and he worries that it will drive her away after all the violence she was subject to before. Anna is made of sterner stuff than anyone realizes so when Bran Cornick sends Charles out to investigate the suspicion of a rogue werewolf attacking humans in the mountains, she insists on going with him. Their trek takes them into danger and really tests them conjuring up their pasts as well as the past of another pack member, Asil. The future of the entire werewolf race may be at stake when they realize the full extent of their enemy's plotting. It's Anna's gifts that may save them all. I read volumes one and two together and they contained the full set of issues to this story so I've also combined them together in the review here. The volumes are split pretty much at the half-way point of the original novel story where Charles and Anna encounter a werewolf and Asil realizes that he needs to get to Charles and Anna because he knows what they are dealing with. The first volume is largely establishing the backstory and characters with most of the action taking place in the second volume. There is a lot of backstory in both because there is Anna, Charles, Bran and Asil's histories to cover which play a part on the present so as I said before, the reader must pay attention. All in all, it was a wonderful experience to see the story after having already read the novel. It was a visual treat that I encourage all Patricia Briggs fans to try on for themselves and I would also recommend this to Urban Fantasy graphic novel lovers in general.

    I reviewed the Alpha and Omega: Cry Wolf: Volume One graphic novel a while back. I wasn't happy with the artwork and thought the story deserved something less cartoonish considering the dark edge to the story. I did find the story captivating and the cliff hanger ending had me wanting this next volume, which contains issues #5-#8 and is the conclusion to the story. The artwork is by the same artist and it isn’t as disappointing as the first volume, but still not to my taste.

The artwork is by the same artist and it isn’t as disappointing as the first volume, but still not to my taste. Since I addressed those issues in the previous review I am not going to discuss it again and not factor it into my review of this volume. This issue tells Asil’s story in flashbacks and we learn why he is unstable and suicidal. The witch Mariposa has come to get revenge on Charles’s father Bran, and ends up finding Asil and causing him to relive his painful past. I haven’t read the book this graphic novel is based on so the story is new to me, and it is a quick page turner. Charles and Anna get caught in the crossfire and Anna embraces her omega powers to help save the day with Charles and Anna completeing the mating bond. There is an excerpt at the end from Briggs's most recent Mercy Thompson release Frost Burned (reviewed here). The Cry Wolf graphic novels give a peek into the world Briggs has created in her novels and will definitely appeal to urban fantasy fans. The cover art of each individual issue is included and is absolutely beautiful. http://www.ismellsheep.com/2013/05/co... 4.5 Sheep

    Cry Wolf volume 2 was even better than the first one! Mariposa makes an excellent villain and her powers are shown very well. The flashbacks that Asil had of Sarai's death seemed very realistic and added a certain quality to understanding his character better. Charles and Anna also find a new ally who has his own interesting history. I loved seeing Anna grow more as a character and learn more about her omega abilities.

Now I have got to read Hunting Ground to see what happens next!

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. The art still feels off in this portion of the series, especially in contrast to the images painted of the characters from the original book descriptions. Still, it's fun to see the stories come to life. Anna is still the most surprising character of the series, though there are less flashbacks in this half of the story than in the first. Can't help but feel bad for Asil with everything haunting him this turn around.

    I loved the first in this series and this one the second in this series is just as great. I love the fact that Anna has compasion and loves charles with her heart but in is her own person. I love the story line in this story,the visuals set in the moutains are amazing and the fact Patrica Briggs brings back Charles heritage is impressive. Highly recommend if you want to be taken on a wonderful journey, refreshing

    After listening to all the Mercy Thompson series, I moved on to this one. This was a novelette preamble to Cry Wolf, even though it's listed as Volume 2. I miss the regular narrator from the Mercy series, still it was engaging, however, I found the characters a little stilted and not as magnetic as the other series. Then again, the series is just starting so maybe it'll pick up in the next books.

    Laura

    Better than the first, but that's not saying much at all. At least Anna's freckles disappeared, and Charles' face took a bit more softness in the drawing. But the storyline was still extremely choppy, and the major plot point that revolves around Anna didn't even happen! These graphic novels are not even good as their own entity, as you need the books in order to be able to understand them.

    This series has grown better from book to book; I think it has surpassed Mercy Thompson series in term of the appeal of the overall development of the characters and the relationship btw main characters. Even the secondary characters are more interesting. One of the best part of the Alpha and Omega series is Bran. I wish Patricia Briggs would change her mind and write a book or series on Bran.

    Art Lueder

    This is set in the Mercy Thompson universe of Patricia Briggs. They tend to be more detective story oriented and that is fine. Excellent read. As many have noted the characters often do not match what one pictures from the books and the quality is a little spotty. 5 Stars for the Patricia Briggs story, 3 stars for the graphics evens out to 4 stars.
