Book Blurb

On the worst day of Salvador Cavalcante’s life, he meets a man destined to be his mate, something sacred where he comes from. Little does he know that mating Davi will make him an alpha stronger than most—and more dangerous.

Davi Braizer is an omega. In his world, that means he is to stay hidden from sight, not allowed to speak to anyone, and at the alpha’s beck and call every day of his life. It’s a miserable existence until his alpha is defeated by a man who just might not be completely human.

When Salvador’s past comes back to haunt him, hiding his true nature is no longer possible. If he wants to keep his mate safe, he’ll need every ounce of power to defeat the man bent on destroying him. And that means becoming the monster everyone fears.

 

Book Review

As opening volumes for a series go (even if this one isn't declared to be part of a series), this book is a great start. You have an omega who needs saving, a guy who is turned into an alpha wolf shifter because he defends himself against an attack, and yet he has a dark secret on top of that. There is also a whole range of great secondary characters, some of whom I really hope will get their own stories.

Salvador is an alpha, I suspect, even before he absorbs his attacker's alpha power. The man is just too determined and commanding not to be. He accepts his new fate with amazing ease, which may partly be due to Davi's calming influence. The other part isn’t explained until much later, and I thought it was super-cool. Salvador takes charge, tells people what to expect, and protects his new mate by giving him the freedom to finally become who he wants to be. The discussions between the two are fun and they very clearly love each other.

Davi hasn't had an easy life, but he is definitely a survivor. He's made the best of what he had and only very gradually believes things have really changed. Salvador is a revelation to him, and he spreads his wings and becomes a real partner in the alpha's life. Once he has found his self-confidence, watch out world!

If you like shifter stories, this is one with a slightly different mythology. If you enjoy a physically stronger male taking charge only to find out the seemingly weaker partner has a lot to contribute as well, give this one a try. And if you're looking for a hot read with lots of bedroom action, you will probably like this novella. I certainly hope it's the beginning to a new series!
