Book Review (Graphic Novel) ~ Alpha and Omega

Alpha and Omega: Cry Wolf  Volume 2 (Alpha & Omega Graphic #2)

by Patricia Briggs
published by InkLit
genre: Graphic Novel, Fantasy, Paranormal

Summary (Goodreads): 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…

My Thoughts: I have to start by saying this is the first time I've really read a graphic novel. I've flipped through them before but never sat and read the full story before. That said I was very mixed about this.
I liked the graphics in the sense that I am a huge fan of fantasy art and if that is all these had been I would have been happy with them. Unfortunately, these were based on popular characters in a  well established series. I think my biggest problem was Bran. The one thing that comes across in both Briggs' series is how young and unassuming he is, in this he is older and kind of muscle bound thug looking. The rest of the characters are similar to this. They seem to be off a bit based on what we know of them.
I liked how quickly it read. It was a nice refresher on this series since it has been awhile since I read the last one. It was bare bones compared to the actual book but as I said an easy way to refresh yourself on a series.
Overall, while I had some problems with how some characters looked, it wouldn't stop me from reading another. I also liked how I can pick one of these up when I'm having trouble getting into a full book.

Rating: 3.5
