It’s been a minute since we’ve seen one of Leann’s barbarian omegaverse stories. I am more than happy to read a new one with Autumn’s Rescue. I’ve been looking forward to this one, since we left Autumn in such a precarious place at the end of the last book.
For those who may have forgotten what happened, Autumn is an omega who was captured on a raid, and then traded to another tribe, with her cousin, Iris. Iris mated the leader of the village, but he declared that Autumn was going to choose her alpha.
To that end, he had her placed in a cave with 12 alphas. They used that cave as their bedroom. Autumn had her own space there, but the goal was for her to get used to the alphas, and to see which one worked for her. We don’t get to know all of them, luckily, becaue that would be a whole lot of alphas for us to remember, but there are a few that we learn about.
The primary ones are Dracon, Kull, Aesir, and Kantor. There is another alpha, but we really only see him as a side character. We do mostly get chapters from the POVs of the others.
The plot of this book is mostly about searching out a missing Autumn. This is not a spoiler, since the early part of this book overlaps with the last part of the last book, so, I’m not doing anything that will spoil you.
Autumn is very shy. I wouldn’t call her completely submissive, but she does lean on the submissive side. There are moments where you get to see flashes of internal fire, and even when you don’t see them, you know that they are there. I think that she’s hanging on as well as she can, considering all the things that have happened to her. Everything has changed in her life, and it has to be really scary, and then as she manages to get her feet under her, they are pulled out from under her again.
Of the 4 named alphas, I really like Kull and Dracon. It’s obvious that they are really, truly, concerned about Autumn and her comfort and wellbeing. I found it interesting that of all the alphas there competing for Autumn that they were often thought of as weak by the others whose POVs we get. I think that Kantor is slimy, and he’s sneaky and gross. Aesir’s a player, and I think that he’d be happier being a player. He’s not really a one omega kind of alpha. Dracon and Kull would definitely be that kind of person for her. I think both of them are strong and silent. They watch things and observe everything and think about what’s going on. I think that makes them stronger, and shame on anyone who can’t see that.
There aren’t any spoilers down below, mostly because it’s a short book. Go check it out! Happy reading!
