Fever is the last book in Sara’s Omegaverse series, the Omegaborn. This series followed three incredibly strong Omegas, but none as strong as Nikki. I don’t think anything that happened in this book could’ve happened without Nikki, because it needed someone her strength and grit to drive it.
So, after the events in Triss’ book, where the Omegas broke out of the sanctuary, the city has taken all of the Omegas that showed up during that whole episode and shoved them into the already terrible sanctuary. There already wasn’t enough support or infrastructure in place for the Omegas who were there, and now the women are in terrible shape. There are thousands of more women, there isn’t enough food, the guards are even worse, and altogther, life totally fucking sucks. Nikki is trying to figure out how to help the women under her leadership, but isn’t sure as to what to do. Then, in walks in Ellie, an Omega who escaped, her Alpha, 3 other Alphas, and a Beta.
The tribes and Alphas outside the walls have called a Central Gathering. It’s basically their version of a parliament. They are trying to figure out what to do about the imbalance that the city has caused when they banished all kinds of Alphas who have no clue how life outside the walls is lived, and who have caused massive amounts of problems. Finally, it’s decided that they are going to help out all the Omegas in the sanctuary because they’ve heard how terrible it is there. They call for 3 volunteers to go and help train the Omegas. Ethan, Viktor, and Alaric are the 3 guys who decide to go help, each for their own reason.
Ethan was banished from the city for helping an Omega who was being assualted by a guard. Alaric is an adrenaline junkie who is bored, even with all the new Alphas that the city kicked out. Viktor has always lived in the wild, but he’s into smuggling, and has connections in the city. One of Viktor’s connections is a Beta named Demiyan, who already does all he can to help the Omegas. His mother was an Omega, and she went through hell, so he has a soft spot for the women.
When Nikki sees the guys, she’s not happy, because she doesn’t want to have her place taken over without so much as a by your leave. She’s lived nearly her entire life in the sanctuary and has worked really hard to become who she is. But she just knows that these guys are going to make trouble.
Well, they are, of course. Because, well you know, Omegas and Alphas, and high emotion.
I really like Nikki. She has had a lot of trauma in her life. She’s worked really hard to be something else than “just” an Omega. She wants more for her people, and she’s going to do everything she can in order to do that. She’s already shown that, and she only shows that more in this book.
I like the guys, mostly. We don’t see much from Ethan, other than in the very beginning, which is where we learn about his motivation. He’s not a non-entity, we just don’t see as much from his perspective. We see a lot from Demiyan’s perspective. And I have to admit, he did some things that I REALLY didn’t like, one big thing in particular. I understand why he chose to do it, and I can understand why he thought that it was necessary to do, but I still don’t like it, and it made me really mad. Of course, I think that he might’ve redeemed himself from that action. Alaric and Viktor are like Ethan, in that we don’t get a whole lot of their story either. I think that it would probably be hard to keep up all those POVs and all the action in the story, and there’s a lot of action in the story. I think that Sara did really well the way that she did it.
Back in the first book, I thought that the real villain in the book was the city, and the last one just reinforced that, and this one was like yup. I was right. Yay for me!
I love all the allies that show up in the course of the book.
I love the big, personal, final battle on the walls. And the wolf is sooooooo cooool!
OK, that’s all for this one. Go check it out! Happy reading!
