Book Blurb

When Vencentio was rescued from his last pack, his life was supposed to get better. In a way, it did, but being locked up in a room in the High Council Estate where his wolf felt trapped wasn’t the new life he expected.

Alpha Carter Whelan shows up to ask Vencentio to join his pack after the Omega rules change, but it’s soon discovered no one in the Omega Network even knew Vencentio was at the High Council Estate. Terrified and wondering what sort of trouble he’s in, the Omega runs with Carter to Denver to seek help.

After fighting with Carter, Vencentio tries to run and ends up crashing into Marlow, a man with the prettiest green eyes ever. Later that night, he meets another god of a man, Galvin, who offers him something he’s never had before… A friend.

But will Vencentio be able to trust anyone again?


Book Review

This was a cute addition to the series, with some subtle differences that made the story just different enough so I didn't get bored. Yes, the overall plot line is still the same, but the type of power Vencentio has and how he deals with it, as well as the way he escapes the clutches of those who want to harm him was new. Like in the previous book, the focus here was on the healing more than the abuse, which I liked better.

Vencentio is in a horrible situation. He's been freed from his old pack (or so he has been told), only to be held prisoner by the High Council themselves (or so it seems). He spends a lot of time in wolf form, which helps him cope, but it doesn't make his situation better. And when help does arrive, he is far more distrustful than any of the other Omegas in the series - no wonder, he has been mistreated not just physically and emotionally, but "Councilman Douchebag" (a very apt name) has also screwed with his mind and perceptions. Vencentio has a long road ahead of him...

Carter, the alpha, is a great guy, but doesn't exactly have a lot of tact. It takes him a while to figure out how to help and deal with Vencentio. I can't blame him - this situation was more complicated than usual. I liked that, for once, he wasn't the overbearing macho type! Galvin, the Marine, and Marlow, who thinks he is straight, were less memorable, but they were good supporters of the forming bond between all four of them.

Just like for the other books in this series, if you're looking for a light, fun read and are in the mood for some main characters with a VERY healthy sex drive, or just want to know what happens next in this series, you will probably like this book.
