A Submissive Lifestyle. A Rebellious Female Wolf. A Fortuitous String of Hope.
Do you believe in destiny? If so, is there a chance to rewrite the future laid out for you? I’ve questioned myself time and again, and I always return to the same answer: Yes.
Born as “unworthy,” I have no hope of moving up the ranks within my vicious pack. Torture is second nature to my flesh, and the mistreatment that comes with my role continues in an endless cycle. Some days are hard, others bring hints of pleasure. Either way, I know this isn’t how I want my life to end.
I have more to offer than simply being an enslaved wolf, but the shackles hold me back. When my last bits of freedom are threatened with extinction, I’m pushed to my limits – revealing I’m far more dangerous than anyone expected.
Shattering the bonds with my pack, I’ve become a Wolf Omega, one who has no ties to anyone.
Being a lone wolf means anyone can be your next challenger, but the Moon has other plans for me, leading me to four alpha men who don’t take shit from anyone. We’re not supposed to get along. Yet, a part of me wants to help them heal their hidden wounds.
My name is Kira Damaris, and I vow to become the first Omega to find my own pack.
WOLF OMEGA is an 80,000+ in length Wolf Shifter Reverse Harem Romance. This book deals with Dark Themes and Trigger Topics. Recommended for 18+ Audiences.
The warning in the blurb should not be taken lightly!! This book is dark and full of terrors!!! Torture, abuse and rape are part of the everyday life in Kira’s pack after her alpha was killed, by his own flesh and blood in shape of his petty and cruel son, Jasper. Kira joins the pack when she’s only about 8 years old and quickly learns, that her African skin colour is not welcomed amongst the others. Only a few people seem to accept her, skin colour and all; the alpha, the elderly pack healer and Titus – a kid who’s only a couple of years older than Kira. With Titus at her side and the alpha as her back, she starts to consider this new place her home. And without any memory of what’s happened to her before the alpha found her, she doesn’t even know if anyone is missing her!!
The only reason this book is 1 heart less of perfection, is because for all her talent, the conversations Kira and Titus has as kids doesn’t seem right. Words and actions that you wouldn’t expect from 8 year old are used, and that pulls me right out of the story and back to reality. I’m also not a fan of the “Royal Mate” thing being used again. I like when the guys has equal footing in terms of status etc. So even if Titus and Leon also turns out to be royals, it still creates conflict when it’s not discovered at the same time.
The first time readers are introduced to Kira, is when she makes several appearances in the Claiming My Pack series. She might be a secondary character but she’s fierce, strong and extremely powerful. In that series it’s hinted, that she has a dark background so I was very intrigued to read this book. I think this is Yumo’s first venture into something darker, but she manages to pull it off flawlessly. The mental and physical torture and rape Kira faces is written in such a brilliant way, that if almost feels like you’re with her in that dank and disgusting room she’s being kept in. The “phoenix rising from the ashes” vibe is incredible, especially with the cliffhanger that leaves readers guessing as to how Kira will be now.
If you’re looking for a paranormal reverse harem with dark vibes, I’d definitely recommend this one!! And I have a feeling that things aren’t going to get any easier for Kira any time soon. She might walk the path the Moon has set out for her, but that doesn’t guarantee a bumpless journey!!
