Kess found a haven in this remote Beta town, but it would only last if she could keep her Omega nature a secret.
Abused by Alphas, unwanted by Betas, she scraped out a quiet, lonely life and tried to heal her broken spirit.
But one fateful glimpse of a grizzled Alpha ended her fragile ruse forever. Catching an Alpha’s eye was a fate she had feared… Until him.
Hunter was tired. A holdover from another time, an Alpha with no family or mate, life had little joy or warmth to offer him.
But he was still the most formidable Alpha in these parts, and a sense of duty to his men kept him moving forward.
He couldn’t have known a stop-over in a small Beta village would change the course of his fate, and certainly never pictured himself with an Omega of his own… Until her.
Point of view:
3rd person. Alternating between Keel & Hunter’s perspectives.
Another sexy omegaverse read rec by Isoellen. I enjoyed this dystopian future where Alpha, Betas, & Omegas were “created” by a single incident.
Keel was an abused omega who escaped her pack when her mate died. Hunter is an Alpha who has been alive since TheEnd transformed the world.
These two found each other at the right time but it’s a bumpy road. Keel doesn’t trust Alphas at all and Hunter never thought he’d have a mate. While fated mates, there’s an acknowledged DubCon situation that they have to move past in addition to threats from other Alphas.
This is obviously launching a series, so while Hunter and Keel find their HFN, it ends abruptly and unresolved in terms of reunifying with Hunter’s pack. I’m interested to see where Roy takes things from here.
Content Warnings (possible spoilers):
Past abuse of Keel, attempted rape & an abduction (two different situations) of Keel, suicidal thoughts/ideations by Hunter two different times
