An offshoot of the series, set in the same world with some of the same characters, is the ''Alpha and Omega'' series, featuring Charles Cornick (the Alpha werewolf) and his mate Anna (the Omega werewolf). Omegas are rare werewolves who are (a) neither dominant nor submissive, making them an exception to the usual pack structure, and (b) tend to be peacemakers and keep other wolves calm. ''Alpha and Omega'' is set in Chicago, ''Cry Wolf'' is set in Montana, ''Hunting Grounds'' is set in Seattle, and ''Fair Game'' is set in Boston. ''Alpha and Omega'', ''Cry Wolf'' and ''Hunting Grounds'' were set during the events of ''Moon Called'' or soon thereafter, while ''Fair Game'' is set in the direct aftermath of ''River Marked'', and lastly ''Frost Burned'' and ''Night Broken'' are set shortly after ''Fair Game''.

* DisproportionateRetribution: In the comic "Hopecross Jilly", the titular fae attacks and devours the fingers and toes of children who behave badly. If that isn't bad enough, she then buries them alive (while still missing their parts) and dances over their burial ground. Yikes. [[BlueAndOrangeMorality Hopecross Jilly also ends up HoistByHerOwnPetard by this]]: she keeps trying to find a reason to go after Adam's daughter Jesse and ends up burned to death as even by Medieval standards of children's behavior (and the Fae), Jesse is a good girl.

* KarmicDeath: Hopcross Jilly murdered hundreds of children for petty reasons because they were "bad"; for example, they were liars, disobeyed their parents, or smoked. [[spoiler: Jesse, by being good even by Jilly's ridiculous standards burns her at a touch when Jilly tries to kill her. Jesse then uses this to burn her like a torch.]]

* DidYouJustFlipOffCthulhu: Mercy as a child and teenager was prone to pranking Bran whenever he did something that made her angry. Bran is the leader of all werewolves, among the most powerful individuals of any species alive, and has a legendary bad temper to boot. Everyone else in the town was in awe of her, because if anyone else in the world had tried doing half of what she did, he'd have killed them.
