Damaged (Omega’s Destruction #2)
by Eva Dresden
MY REVIEW – 4.5 STARS
A descent into cruelty and madness.
I think Eva Dresden is even crueller to Quinn, than Addison Cain is to her omega heroines! However the fires of hell have truly forged her into a strong weapon, one who bides her time, chooses her moment and is prepared to sacrifice her very soul to save her daughter. This book is not just dark, it is viscous in its evil intent, dragging your soul down into its murky depths and tearing at your heart. And I loved every minute of the pain and despair.
Quinn forgot an essential truth, that an omega can never trust an alpha, forgot they view her as little more than an incubator, forgot her value lay in her ability to breed. Promises are lies, and kindnesses hide true intent. With a child to protect Quinn balances on the edge of a knife blade, trading her body for supposed safety, trading her soul for enough sanity to survive.
Tobias is determined to claim back what is his, but will he want want Quinn when he sees the damage wrought to her body? When he sees the evidence of the price of her survival? If he finds her will he forgive her? Can she forgive him?
Despite being determined to reclaim her, whatever the costs, despite thinking he’s doing what is right, I’m not sure if Tobias has earned any forgiveness yet. He clearly hasn’t heard the saying “If you love someone set them free”.
I really don’t know how Quinn holds on to her sanity and hope. I’m sure if it wasn’t for Elise, Quinn would have let go of both by now. Her spirit was ‘Broken’ in book #1, her body and mind were ‘Damaged’ in this book, I hate to think what will happen in ‘Destroyed’! I have a sneaking suspicion that Ilya and Curtis may be involved, along with some nefarious plans.
PS It’s a while since I read book 1 and so much happens towards the end of it that I do recommend a quick re-read of at least the last third.
Quinn Ivers thought she knew hell.
Taken by Tobias Kahler, the cruel Alpha that claimed her, she found herself isolated, mother to another’s child, and pregnant. Her choice had been removed.
Yet the road through hell is long and dark.
Now she finds herself in the glimmering city of Highwater and under the thumb of the Alpha named Lee Grimes. Quinn is caught in a tangled web of deceits and horrors, but she’ll do whatever it takes to see her daughter safely out of Lee’s clutches.
The players might have changed, but her goal remains the same.
Damaged is the second book in the Omega’s Destruction series, a raw and thrilling Omegaverse tale. It is not a traditional romance, containing dark, explicit themes and complete power exchange. These scenes are graphic and may trigger some readers. If this material offends you, please do not purchase.
5 stars – This is a book I will not forget and would definitely read again.
4 stars – I really enjoyed this book, I might not read it again but I would definitely recommend it to others.
3 stars – This story was good but either forgettable or just very typical of its genre.
2 stars – Whilst the book was readable I either didn’t enjoy parts of the plot or just could not connect to the main characters.
1 star – This is a book I simply could not finish for reasons listed in the review.
