Omega by S.M. Reine
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Each time I think I'm done with this world, I keep getting sucked back in! This new series is set after the events of the previous series that essentially re-wrote the world. People who were "mundane" previously, woke up as a werewolf or a vampire or some strange and unusual "gaean species." This has, obviously, changed the world dramatically. This new world is filled with two growing factions - those who support the alpha (Rylie) and those who support a new terrorist who wants to replace the alpha (Everton). Deirdre is a foster kid who was raised in a system that couldn't really support her. She was transformed into a shifter who cannot shift (an omega).
While running from an "moon sick" wolf (doing some awesome free running on the way), she attracts the attention of Rylie and her pack. Deirdre is recruited for an undercover mission to infiltrate Everton's camp because she can easily sell the idea of wanting a new regime. She's even given a partner in crime, a big and unpredictable pack shifter. These two get into all sorts of trouble along the way, but ultimately are successful in infiltrating Everton's camp.
This book begins a really interesting new series that I can't wait to dive into. It satisfies my need for more of my favorite characters while still giving me some completely new and wonderful characters to throw into the mix. This world is completely unique and captivating, something I've come to expect from this author no matter what series I read.
