Reviews Omega Arrival

5 stars Vvacious:

This world never ceases to surprise me. Initially I was a little hesitant regarding this book given that it wasn’t about River and Josiah and taking into account the ending of Third Mate, I was really anxious to know about River and Josiah’s future. But this book has just given me another relationship I want to know more about and that is the threesome of Grey, Ian and Gabriel.

This book mainly follows Justin and Gabriel on their journey as mates in the Angel Hills Pack.

Gabriel was one person who caught my eye even in the previous books because of his reticence to mating and that made him stand-out as a character but this book puts him in the spotlight and it was amazing.

I loved Gabriel and Ian, they were such amazing characters and in their own ways they kind of challenged the stereotypes of omega and beta and it was very enjoyable meeting these two diverse characters. Ian was actually such a surprise, I mean he is kind of like an alpha in his mannerisms, just looking at him with Grey was amazing. I mean Ian understands Grey so well that even Grey doesn’t realise how well Ian knows him. Also even though Grey is the alpha in the relationship between Grey, Ian and Gabriel, it is Ian who holds them together, I mean its amazing how he can comfort both his mates while still never letting Grey’s ego take a hit. It was actually amazing and I really want to know where this relationship between Grey, Ian and Gabriel goes especially now, with the subterfuge that Gabriel and Ian have managed to pull off. (view spoiler) Oh! I really want to know what happens…

Gabriel is similarly an omega who would give anything to be a beta and be rid of his heats. I instantly liked Gabriel given how he was a little uneasy in his new life which was further compounded by the fact that he had never liked how needy he got while in heat. But I appreciated Gabriel’s sensibility given how he works out his options and acts quickly on having figured out that he is kind of getting swiftly pushed into a corner by his own decisions.

I am guessing we are going to get more books on the Angel Hills Pack, because I would love to now more about Gabriel, Ian and Grey.

Then we have Justin and Milo, personally for me in this book Justin and Milo were kind of overshadowed by Gabriel, Ian and Grey except in certain key moments. I loved Justin’s concern for his pups and how he realises that he should marry someone who could love his pups even half as much as he does and I loved the scene between Tim and Milo in the end. It was really sweet. Also Justin and Milo had some explosive chemistry reminiscent of Josiah and River. Also I loved the story arc that was centered around Justin and Milo.

There are also other plot elements which are worth mentioning. I loved Gabriel’s concern for his fellow omegas and I liked the little hints we get into Vince’s situation, Canaan’s destructive behaviour and Xavier’s plight. Also this book offers information regarding the fate of the people who left the River Wolf Pack, I guess the author wanted to skip the drudgery of River(& Co.)’s travels and get the entire group in a somewhat contained situation before beginning their story while at the same time giving us a very good idea about the fate of the River Wolf Pack and the perils of River’s Travels. Also we got a amazing new character in the form of Christopher but I am really hoping Canaan’s story can get a peaceful ending, I mean he is somewhat of a disaster but I have always felt bad for him since he lost his son. Here’s hoping that story gets a happy ending.

Well as is evident this story resolves a few story lines but opens a whole can of new ones, I am really hoping this means there will be a lot more books which will hopefully be as amazing as their predecessors because I for one can’t wait to get a hold of the next one.

Omega Arrival

Emotions run high when five omegas are traded to the Angel Hills Pack, which has suffered a decline in population after an illness killed a fourth of its wolves.

After a previous mating Justin would rather forget, he’s happy to leave his old compound and start afresh. A part of him hopes the gorgeous second-in-command alpha, Milo, will choose him for a mate. As memories of his life with Stone haunt his dreams, Justin struggles to make the right decision for himself as well as his four pups.

Gabriel doesn’t want to mate at all, but as one of the traded omegas, he knows he doesn’t have a choice. He just hopes he’ll end up with a beta and not an alpha. How does he feel when he’s mated to both? Grey is the pack alpha of Angel Hills and he and his baron beta, Ian, want to start a family to continue the dynasty. Is that all they want Gabriel for, a breeding machine?

When an intruder is detected in the compound, everyone is on high alert, especially as the new arrival proves remarkably adept at remaining hidden. Will the newly-created mating bonds be strong enough, or will rancor and bitterness win out?

The Wolves of Daos 5

My new sci-fi, mpreg, paranormal, shifter book is out now on

Amazon

Michael’s life is about to change big-time. He’s always wrestled with anxiety, but he’s finally gotten up the courage to face his fears and enter college. He won’t be living in the dorms, though—he’s not that courageous. Instead Michael rents a small cabin in the woods.

While trying to fix a leaking roof, Michael loses his balance and falls. He comes back to consciousness to find himself staring up at Quinn, a guy who’s not only extremely handsome , but also completely nuts. Because Quinn says he’s a werewolf. Oh, and that Michael is one, too. And they’re true mates. But seeing Quinn shift into wolf form goes a long way in convincing Michael what the man says is true, and when Quinn asks Michael to travel back to his pack with him, Michael eventually agrees.

Daos 5 is unlike anything Michael’s ever seen, and he’s in for more than a few more surprises there; including the fact that, incredibly, Michael’s going to have a baby. Add his new friend Ezzy into the mix, and Michael can’t seem to stay out of trouble. Anxiety on the wane, Michael begins to experience life in a way he’d never thought possible. cover-the-wolves-of-daos-5

Rainbow Snippets is a Facebook group where authors share weekly snippets of their works in progress.

Today’s snippet occurs just shortly after last week’s. Brooks and Foster have been interviewed for a job at a gay club.

On the way back to the apartment building, Brooks thought about everything that had happened. “Why do you suppose he wanted to see us naked?” he asked Foster.

“I don’t know, but we can’t afford to be choosey. We can dance, right? I’m guessing we’re going to do it in front of people. I mean, he said entertainment.”

“Do you think we’ll be doing it naked?” Brooks asked.

“Maybe? I can’t think of another reason he’d want to see us without clothes.”

“Humans are so weird.” Brooks shook his head. “What do you think he meant about tricks?”

“That’s the part that worries me. I can do a handstand. Maybe a cartwheel.”

“Why would anyone want to watch someone do a cartwheel naked?”

Today’s snippet is from my WIP River Wolf Pack/Angel Hills Pack. Unedited.

Foster grabbed Brooks’ arm, stopping him.  A “help wanted” sign leaned against the dirty glass of a window. Brooks looked at Foster, who shrugged. The place was pretty crummy looking, but did they have a choice? They’d been looking for work for weeks. Brooks pulled open the door and let Foster walk ahead of him into the dark interior.

“Can I help you?” a gruff voice asked.

Gradually, Brooks’ eyes adjusted to the dimness and focused on a man standing behind a bar. He was tall, dark-skinned, and had a scar running down his cheek to the middle of his neck.

“We saw the help wanted sign,” Brooks said.

The man looked them up and down. “You have any experience in the entertainment business?”

Brooks opened his mouth to say no, but Foster was quicker.

“Yes.”

The man walked out from behind the bar. “Follow me to my office.”

Foster gave Brooks a look that said he’d had to lie. “How hard could it be?” he mouthed, and Brooks nodded understanding.

The man’s office was small and messy, with papers everywhere. A laptop sat open on a rickety wooden desk. The man plopped down into a ripped vinyl chair that squeaked.

“Let’s see what you got.” He made a grabby gesture with his hands. Again, Brooks looked at Foster, but the coyote-shifter didn’t seem to understand what the man wanted either. “Take your clothes off,” the man said, looking exasperated.

Rainbow Snippets is a group on Facebook where authors can share pieces of their work in progress.

Today’s snippet is from my WIP Omega Arrival, which spins off from my River Wolf Pack series. In this snippet Justin, one of the omegas traded to Angel Hills Pack, meets some of the alphas and betas looking for an omega mate.

After a moment, the man called Tarz walked into the building, shutting the door on bright morning sunlight and birdsong. Again, Justin felt the blacksmith’s gaze like an unwelcome touch. The man reminded him so much of Stone, Justin’s bowels turned to water.

Tarz walked up to where the omegas were seated, and Grey introduced him to each. Gabriel held himself aloof, obviously not caring for the man, but London smiled at Tarz and the twins didn’t seem bothered. Justin knew just because the blacksmith was powerful and looked a bit like Stone didn’t mean he was a sadist like Justin’s former mate, but he couldn’t shake the unease he felt around the man.

Rainbow Snippets is a Facebook group where authors share pieces of their work. Today I’m sharing another bit from my WIP The Vampire’s Consort. In Nox, the underground world of the vampires, Birch meets Draven at the bar.

“So Athan really did it, then. Got himself a consort.”

“Something wrong with that?” Birch lifted his chin.

“You’re blushing, how delightful. No wonder Athan chose you.” Draven cocked his head. “Although there’s something more about you. I just can’t put my finger on it.”

Uncomfortable, Birch looked around for Athan, but he was busy talking to a group on the other side of the bar. At a table nearby, Serafino fed an amber liquid to Lucine from a narrow glass.

“Don’t expect Fino to come rescue you,” Draven said lightly. He grinned at Birch’s astonished look. “Actually, you’re far safer sitting here with me than you would be with that one. You know what his name means, don’t you?”

Birch shook his head.

“It means burning one or serpent.” Draven chuckled. “Surely, as a human, you have studied the Bible.”

A chill ran down Birch’s back, but he jutted his chin defiantly. “And what does your name mean?”

Draven’s blue-green eyes widened a bit as his lush mouth spread in a smile. “My name means hunter. Take that as you will. And, before you ask, your intended’s name means immortal. Rather boring if you ask me.” He rolled his eyes and took a sip of his drink. Lifting his hand, he got the attention of the female bartender. “Another one of these, please. And one for my friend, here.”

The woman glanced at Birch before nodding and reaching under the counter.

Birch wasn’t sure he wanted to accept, but something about Draven made him feel he had to prove himself. So when the bartender set down the glass of pinkish liquid, he tentatively took a sip.

“Already moving in on my territory?” Athan’s voice from behind Birch startled him into spilling some of his drink.

Rainbow Snippets is a fun Facebook group where authors gather weekly to share pieces of their work.

Today’s snippet comes from book 4 of my River Wolf pack series, which has River and his mate and friends on a quest for a new territory. The book will also tell about Milo, Justin, and the others in the Angel Hills Pack, which is anxious for the new omegas to start breeding. This scene comes very early in the book when River finds Patrick (one of the rogues he took in a while back) lounging on an overhang watching Jax, Brooks, and David below.

Patrick nodded to River in greeting as a sudden breeze ruffled his ginger-colored hair. Below, River could see Jax, David, and Brooks laughing and splashing in the pool. Why Patrick was watching them, River wasn’t sure, although it was certainly a pleasant place to sit–the view of the rounded green mountains rolling into the distance nothing less than spectacular.

River watched David jump onto Jax’s back, the human staggering briefly under the weight before heading for deeper water. Brooks disappeared under the surface and shot up again in a rush, knocking David off Jax and under water. David came up sputtering and sent a large splash into Brooks’ face.

“I’ve never liked humans,” Patrick suddenly broke into River’s thoughts about how much fun the three men seemed to be having. “After what they did to my pack, I despised them.”

“Anyone would,” River said.

Patrick turned to him, his lean, pale body freckled from recent sun exposure. “I didn’t like you much when I met you. Thought you were crazy for what you were doing. I mean, didn’t you realize how ruthless humans are? Didn’t you know that they’d killed children? My whole fucking family?” He looked back over the cliff to the men splashing below. “And you’d mated a half-human. I couldn’t imagine that Josiah could be anything but cruel.”

Today’s snippet is from my WIP sci-fi paranormal.

“I’m sure you are being mellow dramatic,” Ezzy said.

“Me?” Michael couldn’t help but laugh. “That’s the pot calling the kettle black.” The way Ezzy just stared told Michael the Daosians had different words for their cooking implements. Either that, or Ezzy had never set foot in a kitchen. He wouldn’t be surprised if it were the latter. “You’re the one who’s mellow dramatic.”

Ezzy made a face. “I am sure Quinn’s parents adored you.”

“They liked me fine. It was the grandparents who despised me.”

“Again, I think you are exaggerating.” Ezzy examined his fingernails.

“Twat,” Michael said.

“I beg your pardon!” Ezzy laid a hand on his chest, looking offended. “The Twats have tiny brains and eat their own excrement!”

Michael stared at his friend for a moment before breaking into laughter.

“Oh, my God. Okay, you’re not a twat. But seriously, Quinn’s grandfathers kept crinkling their noses and asking me questions like they thought humans were savages.”

Ezzy shrugged. “You are only half-human. Anyway, who cares what they think? I am willing to bet Quinn does not.”

This is another piece from my paranormal sci-fi mpreg WIP. Unedited.

The set-up: Michael is prone to anxiety and has recently found out he’s a werewolf alien and pregnant with his alpha mate’s child. Quinn (Michael’s mate) has taken Michael to the doctor, who turns out to be a species that looks remarkably like the disgusting, giant garden slugs his grandmother used to have in her backyard.

As the slug-man undulated its way into the room, Michael gave in to a full-body shudder.

“I can’t do this,” he said.

Quinn looked really concerned now. “You can’t do what?”

Michael’s eyes went to the doctor, who was adjusting the light over the table with long, glistening fingers .

“Hop up here, Michael, and I’ll have a look at you,” Dr. Gunwanoll said in that voice that sounded as though he was gargling pudding. As the alien moved, Michael could see it left a slick trail of slime in its wake.

Michael shook his head. “No.”

Quinn ran his hand soothingly over Michael’s back.“Michael.”

“No,” Michael repeated, louder this time. He turned and ran out of the room, not paying any attention to where he was going. He turned several corners before slowing down, heart beating almost painfully in his chest. He struggled to bring his breathing under control. There was no way he was letting that—that thing touch him, no matter what Quinn said.

Michael took off one way, changed his mind, and ran in the other direction, covering the same ground like a confused rat in a maze. Finally, he forced himself to stop and think. He needed a place to hide. Spotting what appeared to be a closet, he slipped inside and shut the door.

He heard voices and recognized Quinn’s as well as the glugging speech of Dr. Gunwanoll. Damn, how fast could that mother fucker slide around? Michael tensed, but the voices got farther away rather than closer. It was awful to run from Quinn, and a large part of Michael wanted to call to his mate. He would if it weren’t for the slug doctor.

Michael didn’t know what part of the castle he was in, and he didn’t care as long as he didn’t have to let that gelatinous alien lay its slimy two-fingered hand on him. Taking deep, even breaths, he managed to slow his heart rate and dispel the light-headed feeling that had overcome him when he realized he wasn’t halluciating and that thing was going to touch him. How could anything in the universe look like that and be a talking, functioning being? Shuddering, he covered his face with his hands and tried not remember the feel of the slimy things between his toes on dark mornings when he’d walked out his grandmother’s front walk to get the newspaper.
