Book Review: Patricia Briggs Novel “Fair Game”, Its About Warewolves

Patricia Briggs is a famous American author. She is a writer of fantasy novels and has been writing since 1993. She has created a fantasy series of novels known as the Mercy Thompson fantasy series. These novels are set in an urban back ground in the United States. Briggs is 48 years old having been born in 1965. She published her first novel ‘Masques’ in 1993 and has followed up with many more.

Most of Briggs characters are sheer fantasy, sometimes bordering on the absurd. A reader is hard put to visualize the tales written by her as having any realism. Briggs makes an attempt to get reader attention by presenting a bizarre and unrealistic scenario.

Her novel ‘Fair Game’ can be classified as a fantasy and presents werewolves in human garb. These werewolves have now revealed themselves and are a part and parcel of everyday life in the United States. One can appreciate a fantasy, but to write about a subject where werewolves are accepted by human beings and organizations like the FBI will tax the imagination of the reader. As per the writer the werewolves have now as a clan revealed themselves to humans.

In ‘Fair Game’, The FBI approaches two werewolves to help solve some mysterious killings in Boston. The two werewolves are Anna Latham and Charles Cornick. These two werewolves are in love. Charles is the dominant werewolf, while Anna has a quality of being able to calm other werewolves.

The FBI is unable to solve the mysterious killings and these two werewolves help out. As they investigate they find that the persons killed are werewolves and it dawns on the duo that somebody is targeting persons who are werewolves. This lends urgency to their efforts to track the killer. The killer now targets the two werewolves Charles and Anna, who themselves are in great danger.

This is supposed to be a thrilling tale, but many readers will find the entire theme of the novel implausible and reading it would mean entering into a fantasy world which just cannot exist. One reads fantasies, but to read a fantasy as a real time action novel is bound to tax the imagination of any reader.

Patricia Briggs does try and present a thriller. The plot is racy and the book is eminently readable. If a reader can forget about the absurdity of the plot, he or she may well be able to enjoy the book. All one has to think is that it is a fantasy. Briggs has latched on to the American fascination for werewolves and created an entire series of books on the subject. Generally such fantasies have a momentary moment of glory and then fade away.

Patricia Briggs was born in Butte, Montana, USA. She has during her life time lived in many cities in the North West of the USA. Presently she resides in Washington State. Her first novel ‘Masques’ was not a success, but it has been re-issued again. Some of her books notably Blood Bound and Iron Kissed have been on the New York Times best seller lists.
