(Review) Omega Mine ★★★☆☆
Series: Alpha & Omega
Genre: Paranormal Romance
A bond forged in blood. Fealty given to the one he desires above all others. Graced with the ability to shift into any form, Diskant Black is the absolute authority when it comes to New York shifters, and as the Omega of the city, his word is law. Protecting the shifter races is more than a job, it's a predisposition ingrained since birth-nothing is more important. Until a chance encounter with a tiny female sets fire to his blood, brings him to his knees and turns his world upside down. Ava Brisbane is more than he bargained for in a mate-beautiful, fragile...human. If he wants to keep her by his side, he'll have to sacrifice a portion of his soul to establish a bond that can never be broken. Unfortunately, the timing couldn't be worse. Shepherds-hunters of all the shifter races-have arrived in New York. To protect the woman he can't live without, Diskant will have to stand against those who have come to start a war.
Omega Mine is the first book in the Alpha & Omega series. While I found it interesting it had a hard time keeping my attention. It was a good story which is why I gave it 3 stars but it couldn't keep my attention. I love shifter books and Diskant, as an Omega, is like the ultimate shifter. He can shift into several different animals. Ava is a telepathic who knows about shifters even though most people don't. In this series shifters know who their mate is as soon as they meet them. What happened after they met was pretty funny.
Of course with any book there has to be the bad guys. In this case it's the Shepard's. They hunt down and kill shifters because they say that they're demon possessed. There's also a group of people that keep records of all the shifters and people like Ava that have extra sensory perception. Seems a little overkill to me.
I read this book 4 months ago so it's hard to remember all the details to do a review. Please forgive the shortness of this review. Thanks for stopping by.
