This is another double header day. Only today we’re getting a Sara Fields twofer. We’re going to look at the first two books of her new Alpha Brotherhood series, with Savage being the first book. These are MF post-apocalyptic omegaverse stories.
So, we have Freya. She’s a very rare alpha woman, and she’s also a very fierce fighter. She’s probably the best warrior her city has, including their king. After their last big battle and their last win, the king decides that he’s going to have a big celebration, and he’s going to announce that he’s going to take a mate. And oh, guess who that mate is going to be? Yeah, you guessed it, he wants in Freya’s pants big time. Except, yeah, Freya ain’t about to let that shit happen. So she grabs her handy dandy knife and beats the shit out of the king, and then jams her knife into the side of his head. Now she’s Queen Freya, and is fierce AF and is taking over the world.
We also have Aric. He is an alpha and he is a sage in a secret Brotherhood charged with keeping the balance of light and dark in the world. He has been summoned because Freya is threatening the current balance of the world. She isn’t doing it on purpose, it’s happening. But the Brotherhood knows one thing about Freya that not even she knows about herself. She has both alpha and omega genetics. Her omega genetics can be awakened by a compatible alpha. And Aric would be the compatible alpha. So, his job is to go infiltrate her city, and to deal with her, however it needs to happen. He decides that he’s just going to show up in her bedroom and force her into estrous and then bond with her.
I love Freya. She really is smart, fierce, and is incredibly competent. She is a great fighter, and her people like and respect her, which doesn’t always happen when it comes to rulers, but it does with her. I think it’s because everyone knows that she will do everything she can for her city and her people, up to and including laying down her life. She’s not one of those rulers who sits on her ass back in her safe castle, she’s out there, on the ground, leading from the front, getting bloody and fighting the enemy. I have mad respect for her.
Aric is a good man. He wants to do everything he can to maintain the balance of the world, but then he meets Freya, and while he’ll still do what he has to, Freya immediately becomes his first priority, which is how it should be, of course, but it doesn’t always stay that way. I’m impressed with him and how he handles Freya and the fact that she’s a queen and powerful in her own right.
I just love how Aric and Freya interact everywhere. While their dynamic changes, depending on where they are, they are both happy with the way they are interacting with each other. They are definitely so much better together than they are apart.
OK, that’s all for this one. Go check it out! And hang on for the next one. Happy reading!
