Once again a disturbingly captivating heart wrenching read, the author has a way with words to make was is so abhorrent and wrong seem right through a different perspective. Picking up where the first book Born to be Bound left off in a dystopian world of Thólos where chaos has revealed monsters within it’s citizens bare to all to witness, yet unwilling to change.
Claire has been shattered and destroyed by a betrayal so ultimate and unforgiving, and yet as broken as Claire is she is still determined and resolute in her ideals of freedom and the equality of the Omegas who are hunted for their genetic chemistry. After learning in her solitude for solution to her haunted destroyed future Claire is recaptured by her mate and goes about fighting him in a different tactic, communication, while still rooting for Thólos to see themselves and change their circumstances with the aid of the hidden rebellion.
Shepherd is horrible, abrasive yet disturbingly charming in his own twisted sadistic way, a true Alpha male with no sense of basic human interaction let alone to please his mate Claire. Having learned the error of his ways and how he ruined his mate, Shepherd seeks to amend his transgression by attempting communication and compromise. More of Shepherd’s horrid past is revealed giving the reader understanding to his insane idea of utopia of revealing Thólos’s true nature, making his character more personal and not so sexually driven for absolute domination his only other quality.
The supporting characters are still sparse but make massive impacts, the Omegas are freed with the help of Claire, Corday is unwaveringly supportive and determinedly faithful of the resistance’s uprising while be woefully unaware of the impending danger that stalks his every move.
