I try not to think about that last one. The healer burden is one I gladly bear–my wolves need me. Even if our jackhole alpha won’t let me touch him to do my job. Oh, he’ll bring a wounded pack mate to me, but we’re forbidden to touch.
Which is probably for the best because I’m his omega. We’ve known since, well, forever. But we can never be together.
See rules one through three.
But everything changes when a powerful new wolf storms into our small town, bringing secrets and danger and everything I never knew I wanted with him.
Wolves of the Midnight Stars by Jewel Killian was my first introduction into Omegaverse. Never heard of it? Me either! But I started out very curious, and Jewel didn’t disappoint.
Wilhelmina, known as Willa, is an omega wolf with a problem. She knows who her mate is, Rafe, but circumstance keeps them apart. Which, as it turns out, is very uncomfortable for an omega.
Then along comes Jonah and everything changes. Suddenly things that weren’t possible before might be possible now. But although things might now be possible, they won’t be the same anymore.
I was a bit hesitant about Wolves of the Midnight Stars to begin with, as it didn’t really grab me at the start. And Willa really annoyed me. I found it hard to get past her almost obsessive focus on wanting sex. I get why it was that way, but it didn’t stop me from wanting to smack her and tell her to get over it and move on.
But at the same time, she impressed me with her selfless approach to just doing what is right, no matter the cost to herself.
And while I wasn’t paying attention, the story hooked me. By the end, I was didn’t want to put it down. But that ending…I didn’t see it coming and was taken by surprise. Bring on book 2!
If you’re not familiar with Omegaverse, Jewel Killian has given a really good description of what it’s all about at the start. Be sure not to skip it, or you’ll be left wondering what is going on!
The Omegaverse is certainly a different take on wolf shape shifters and pack lifestyles. It’s a little weird and a lot spicy.
This is a relatively short story and despite my doubts at the start, the characters and plot are all engaging enough that it drew me in and held my attention. Be prepared though – when I said that she has an obsessive focus on sex, I was possibly understating it a little…
This is an entertaining and surprisingly unusual take on wolves and shapeshifters, and well worth your time to spend a couple of hours with it.
Thank you Jewel Killian for my copy of this ebook. The views expressed are my own.
