The first few chapters of this are the same as the freebie prelude to the series, Absolute Power, so if you’ve read that, you’ll need to skip ahead slightly. If not, don’t bother with it and just go straight for this gem.
What a pleasure it is to be back in Addison Cain’s Omegaverse, following old and new characters after the apocalyptic events of the previous trilogy. I was amazed at how seamlessly their stories were interwoven, how much I felt for new characters, and how mellow and emotionally affected I was by old ones. I think the main thing about this series (aside from its minor beasty themes) is how emotionally invested it makes the reader. In fact, it amazes me how much depth these books have alongside the erotica (which, by the way, Cain has absolutely perfected).
I was a little apprehensive going into this about just how similar it would be to Shepherd and Claire’s story, but was quickly appeased. This new dome has its own culture, and despite similar themes due to the way the universe has been established, the plot and relationships work on an entirely different level, making it refreshing yet familiar.
The ending was, as ever, totally unexpected and well worth the read. I can’t wait to see what happens—to both sets of characters.
