Guest Review: Alpha & Omega Graphic Novel


Summary: Anna never knew werewolves existed, until the night she survived a violent attack…and became one herself. After three years at the bottom of the pack, she’s learned to keep her head down and never, ever trust dominant males. Then Charles Cornick, the enforcer—and son—of the leader of the North American werewolves, came into her life.

Charles insists that not only is Anna his mate, but she is also a rare and valued Omega wolf. And it is Anna’s inner strength and calming presence that will prove invaluable as she and Charles go on the hunt in search of a rogue werewolf—a creature bound in magic so dark that it could threaten all the pack…

First, I (Mindy) would like to introduce you to Tiffany with Vivid Fantasy Reads. Tiffany is a big fan of all of Patricia Briggs books, so she’s already read the original Alpha & Omaga. I've asked Tiffany to do a quick Q&A of the graphic novel vs. the book itself.

You are not usually a fan of graphic novels or comics, but did Patricia’s graphic novel make you more interested? No, I do not like graphic Novels or comics.

What did you like about this story? This is a very difficult question for me because I loved, loved, loved the actual books & I didn’t get the same feel in the graphic novel. The books were very much a love story with some action. The graphic novels seem to focus just on the action. Which I guess is fine because that’s what comics are about, right?

What did you think about the illustrations? I thought the illustrations were very well done, and all the characters looked exactly how I pictured them in my head while reading the actual books in the Alpha & Omega series.

Do you think the illustrations helped you follow along with the story? Yes. If there were no pictures, the story would have been very hard to follow.

Is there anything you didn’t like? The beginning of the graphic novel was very confusing. If I hadn’t already read the actual books, I would not have understood and would be even more confused than I already was.

Are you interesting in seeing the second graphic novel in the series? No

How does the graphic novel compare to the original novel? It follows the story very well, and if it wasn’t for that I would not have understood what was going on the beginning of the graphic novel.

I'm not big on graphic novels, but I do love this series. The only graphic novels I've looked at were from Kelley Armstrong's Otherworld Series. I love Clay and Elena.
