I could be tempted to be as cruel as the author, and give this book zero stars just because of how terrible she was for leaving the story at the point she did. How can I function, how will I ever sleep, what will I do until the next book is released?😉😂
This ends on the cruelest of cliff-hangers but even so it is 100% worth reading this book. I love Gina, Zeke and Rowan, I’m undecided on Axel and I currently loathe Seif with passion that borders on insanity. I started off with pity and sorrow for him, since the core of his quest was built on the very best of intentions, however his total disregard for anyone other than himself, his unrelenting pursuit and treatment of Axel and Gina, soon made me dislike him. A lot.
Then the hulking brute would do something nice, something that felt almost honorable, and my feelings would waver. Sadly he would then return to being that arrogant, self-centred, thoughtless posterior-hole that left me wanting to skewer him with a rusty fork. Until that man shows an inkling of empathy, emotion or care for someone other than himself he can rot in the blackest, most remote edges of the web for all I care. In fact that’s far too good a fate for him at the moment. There is a huge part of me that is kind of hoping Gina escapes him, though I’m sure by the end of the series I will have made a whole 180 flip on that and will adore the very ground Seif walks on. And won’t that just encourage the insufferable alpha.
God I love a book that makes me feel. And this had that in spades. It has sweet moments, angry moments, happy moments, anxious moments and despairing moments, all of which combined into an amazing must read story. Gina is so strong, so independent and so determined to avoid a dire fate. She is tough, resourceful and caring and you can’t help but love her. Zeke and Rowan are amazing and the perfect Beta’s for this Omega. The glimpses we got of Axel at the very beginning of the story did endear him to me, though his treatment of Rowan knocked that sideways. I need to see more of his pov in the next book to help me get a true feel for him.
The story is one roller coaster ride and it hurtled at break-neck speed from the very start of the book. It’s not even a quick read, and by the end I felt as though I’d been dragged through the mill, but in the best way possible. I will warn that this Gina and her mates don’t actually get to the Academy until almost the end of the book. There is one heck of a lot that happens before that point – and all of it is good. I may just have a slight book hangover from this unputdownable story!

I never asked to be an Omega.
I’m a Fortune Fae—I see the future. But I didn’t see this coming. My Alpha will stop at nothing to possess me and has dragged me all the way to Fortune Fae Academy to join the other wide-eyed Omegas-in-training. He believes I’ll survive–and I hope he’s right. He also believes I’ll kneel at his feet. He couldn’t be more wrong about that.
I don’t need three broody Betas and an asshat Alpha telling me what to do. When I graduate the Academy as an ascended Omega, I’m rejecting my mate-circle and getting the hell out of here. Except there’s one slight problem. My Alpha has seen the future too… and he knows something I don’t.
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.
Whatever he thinks is going to happen, his cruel smirk says I’m not going anywhere.
