Synopsis (Goodreads):
Ten years ago, Deirdre Tombs died. When she was reborn the next day, Deirdre had become a shapeshifter who can't shift shapes. Nobody knows what animal she's supposed to be. She's definitely not a werewolf. The Alpha, Rylie Gresham, can't force her to transform like other members of her pack.

Now Deirdre is considered an omega, the weakest shapeshifter in the pack--a vulnerable position when Everton Stark demands tribute from Rylie. He wants to be the dominant Alpha. The only Alpha. And he plans to make her pack submit whether they want to or not. Stark can make every shapeshifter obey him by force of will alone.

Every shapeshifter except Deirdre.

The shifter who can't shift is the only hope for Rylie to win the war against Stark. It will take everything Deirdre has to survive undercover in his den. But can an omega's will be stronger than that of a charismatic, deadly Alpha like Everton Stark?
Thoughts on Omega: I say this every S.M. Reine book I read. EVERY ONE. And I'm going to say it this time. There comes a point in every one of her books where I have to quietly put the book down and walk away because WTF, MAN! WHY YOU KILLING ME LIKE THIS?!?!

*gives everyone the crazy eyes*

Soooo... Deirdre has a few issues. Not being able to shift really seems like the least of her worries at the moment. She has a nightmare on her tail, a power hungry alpha with the ability to compel giving her a second look, and friends who might not be friends but maybe they are and it's all a little confusing when you look at it from the outside.

It's not really confusing. It's complicated and tangled and Deirdre is torn between hating Rylie for her part in her division from the other shifters and wanting to help out because Stark is kinda batshit crazy at times.

Nobody likes a batshit crazy alpha, man. Actually, some people do. Which is a big part of the problem. With so many disenfranchised rallying to Stark's cause and Stark's willingness to do WHATEVER is necessary to reach his endgame, Deirdre is in a bad place.

Given that this is a S.M. Reine series, I can pretty much guarantee that bad place will only get worse before too long.
