The H--virtually one note. Mostly he shouts MINE alot, and threatens to "punish" the h. Oh, and by punish, he means spanking in case you need clarity. He's quite the hunk o burnin' love, but otherwise, we learn little about him. He speaks intelligently and fluidly to others, but shares little besides declarative statements and threats with the h.
The h--she's a bit older, thankfully. No virgins! But I can see them coming, for sure, along with some secret babies. She does perform some TSTL acts, which are not endearing.
The plot--pretty spare. Because this book is so short, there's little world building, and not much character development of the different players. There's mostly sex. However, there's such an insta-love vibe that there's virtually no real connection between the H and the h.
Both authors are really accomplished, and have written terrific stories and series. It's unclear where this is going, and doesn't entice this reader to the next story. Read the first volume of Mina Carter's Lathar series to see how a new series is supposed to kick off.
As always Mina Carter and Susan Hayes do not disappoint.
This new “world” is set up in glimpses. First the village where Leia is found by Var. Var and his air bike. The Citadel where The Lord Overseer Tane and Var live. And because we’re not force fed the facts of the changes that have taken place the story flows well. I call it the “movie effect”, I can see the action in my mind. Oh, and there are just enough sexy times to spice up the tale. I won’t call it romance exactly because it is more like instinct taking over.
This is a great start to a new series, sexy sci-fi at it’s best. Can’t wait for Rath!
To be fair, I'm not huge on the omegaverse genre, but I did enjoy the book, so hats off to the ladies for managing that. The book takes place in the wake of the hostile takeover of earth by an alien species (Tolath) whose purpose is to use human females for breeding, since they don't have enough of their own (some weird genetic quirk). One faction of the Tolath did the initial invasion, but they then proceeded to abuse their new subjects, so a different faction has come and is finishing up the process of kicking them out (read that as killing them off). So this new group is at least not the monsters of the old regime, but the humans don't know that. What the Tolath don't know, is that their genetic tinkering failed to make humans docile like it has for previous species. This series will be about the two species learning to live with one another, because at this point, neither has a choice.
Var was probably a good starting character, honestly. He wasn't royalty or nobility, so it was easier to get to know both him and his species through him than it would have been if they had started the series with, say, the overseer. I actually ended up liking him a good bit by the end of the book. Leia was a mom desperate to save her daughter, and brave enough to literally anything to succeed. I think making her an older woman probably helped start the series too, because she had some wisdom to go with her drive and it served to educate the Tolath.
This book is full of hulking alien warriors, fearsome human females, lots of action, a good heaping of steam, and some eye opening moments for some rather surprised males. A good read that won't take you long and will make you curious about the next book.

Var, a member of the other race who now rule, is sent to stop a rogue Alpha from making trouble with the local population. Arriving on the scene in time to become aware of the female meant for him and the angry Alpha who intended to claim her.
Add mistrust of their conquerors, memories of the assault on their world and the changes to the DNA which had unwanted, together with the fear of those now in control. Will Leia and Var learn more about each other and understand the fear and resentment which results?
However I like Mina Carter and wanted to give it the benefit of the doubt.
I think for me as I've read a lot of sci fi romance I just need a bit more sci fi in the mix.
I found the female character completely infantalised the story unimaginative
A bit of a lowering of the bar instead of taking risks and upping the game.
Those are almost the direct quote from the protagonist. The women are half starved, all scared and totally clueless.
The men are the better option, from ones that mass rape and abuse their "omegas". Super way to make anything else look better.
It's honestly just gross.
