Book Review: Omega (War of the Alphas Book 1) by S. M. Reine

Ten years ago, Deirdre Tombs died. When she was reborn the next day, Deirdre had become a shapeshifter who can’t shift shapes. Nobody knows what animal she’s supposed to be. She’s definitely not a werewolf. The Alpha, Rylie Gresham, can’t force her to transform like other members of her pack.

Now Deirdre is considered an omega, the weakest shapeshifter in the pack—a vulnerable position when Everton Stark demands tribute from Rylie. He wants to be the dominant Alpha. The only Alpha. And he plans to make her pack submit whether they want to or not. Stark can make every shapeshifter obey him by force of will alone.

Every shapeshifter except Deirdre.

The shifter who can’t shift is the only hope for Rylie to win the war against Stark. It will take everything Deirdre has to survive undercover in his den. But can an omega’s will be stronger than that of a charismatic, deadly Alpha like Everton Stark?

After Genesis everything was different. The world ended and was recreated and not everyone came back. Some that did come back didn’t come back the same. The world is now full of different types of gaegans. Deirdre is a shifter but can’t actually shift and doesn’t know what her animal is supposed to be. They call her an Omega which is not a compliment. She has had to fight and survive for 10 years since Genesis and now this. One more complications she just doesn’t need.

Gage is a mystery. Deirdre meets him when visiting Rylie Gresham and he insists he go with her undercover into Starks operation. Deirdre starts falling for Gage and is really surprised to find out what type of shifter he is. Great chemistry between these two!

SM Reine series are some of my favorites. She writes great series and when they end it’s not really the end. A new series starts that introduces new characters without giving up the story line that has been going on for so long or losing other beloved characters, which is why Reine is one of my favorite authors. It is important to read her other works before starting these series if you want the full stories, but each series can be read without the other and you will still love it.

About the Author:
Hi everyone! My name is Sara, and I'm the New York Times Bestselling Author of urban fantasy known as SM Reine. I collect swords, cat hair, and typewriters (which I do use for writing!). You can usually find me writing on my treadmill desk at 2am whilst listening to dubstep. Yes, dubstep.

If you would like to know the instant I have a new book available, you should enlist in my Army of Evil! I'll only email you when I have a new release, which is generally no more than once a month. I can't write any faster than that. :)


  1. Oooooo this sounds amazing. I haven't read SM's work before but I have a feeling I will be starting with this one. ;) Definitely adding this to my GR list. Hopefully I get a break in review books to read this beauty.

  2. I haven't read any SM work, but she has been on my radar for a while. I'm going to add to my TBR list.
