Hunting Ground (2009) Patricia Briggs (Alpha & Omega)

Hunting GroundThis is set only a few months after the previous book (which is set immediately following the novella).

Charles and Anna are still setting into their marriage and their mating bond.

He wasn’t used to all of this emotion. He’d taken the feelings and desires of his human half and stuffed them somewhere so they wouldn’t interfere with the things he had to do. And now they were all back, and he had no tools to deal with them— and he wasn’t stupid enough to think that they would ever allow themselves to be stuffed away again.

This story has no Asil, so that’s possibly one of the reasons it isn’t a favorite.

But it does have another scene–almost a throw away contributes nothing to the plot–that is an all-time favorite.

So often people got it wrong, treating their elders like children, people to be coddled and ignored. He knew better, and so did the big man. The Elders were closer to the Maker of All Things and should be deferred to whenever they made their will known.

The old man took Anna’s hand and made her take another bow as well. He kissed her hand, then let his grand-son escort him back to his table in triumph. His family rose around him, fussing and loving as they ought, while he sat as a king and took his due.

It’s almost a throw-away scene, except that it tells you so much about Anna–and also Charles as he recognizes these important things in his mate.

It’s a good story, and necessary to my series, but not one of my favorites.
