Publisher's Summary

Deacon:

I’ve spent my life preparing to be alpha and uphold our pack’s traditions. Now, I’m not sure how many of those traditions I believe in.

Every day, I protect the illusion my father’s not sick and dying. Packs killing their alpha when they’re too weak to lead - that’s harder to swallow when it’s a choice you’re facing instead of a lesson you’re taught. 

What kind of man would I be if I could turn on my own father like that? But what kind of alpha can I be if I don’t?

Then there’s the omega pits. I never thought twice about the gladiator matches between packs’ weakest runts. Omegas who can’t survive the fights aren’t fit to bear our children.

So why do I step in to save Logan, a stranger whose own pack doesn’t even want him, when he can’t last two minutes in the pits on his own?

Is it my pathetic attempt to save anyone at all? A rebellion against traditions I now resent? Or something greater, the way his eyes find me through the crowd, how every time his lips part, I hope it’s to call out my name?

And when he challenges my every belief with a ferocity fiercer than any he showed in the pits, I wonder: If he’s a threat to everything I’m defending...am I defending the right things?

Logan: 

It’s never been a goal of mine to die young, its just always been a distinct possibility. Fun little side effect of being your pack’s weakest omega. It's just the way the world is though, so I never spent much time railing against it.

So no one’s more shocked than me that I fight so hard against the inevitable when it's my turn in the pits. Though I’m definitely not the only one shocked when Deacon Wythe steps in to save me.

It makes no sense. Why me? Why him? Why does he tolerate my petty sniping? Why can’t I stop trying to piss him off when all I want to do is kiss him?

But once I get that second chance, I hang onto it tooth and claw. Even challenging my own protector if that’s what it takes to stay alive. And when that leads to one night of confused passion and a child growing inside me?

If people were surprised how hard I fought to save myself, wait till they see what I’ll do to protect my new family.

This novel of werewolves, death matches, and mpreg (oh my!) comes with an HEA and an ages-18-and-up label!

Interesting twist

on the shifter world. I enjoyed the whole premise It was a little different I do wish it had been developed a little bit more and maybe some things were more resolved. Overall it was a pretty quick and enjoyable listen with a good narrator.

When is it Time to Let Go of Tradition?

Omega baiting. Just a fun sport for alphas to enjoy, right? The pits were where omegas of age were traditionally taken to fight each other. Winners were seen as the best of mates, strong enough to carry their alpha's children. So what if omegas died? So what if omegas didn't want to fight? It was tradition.

One omega stayed at home with his family, carrying on the work of fishing and maintaining the fleet of boats. Imagine the horror of being beaten and bound, thrown helpless into the pit...

Narrator Cory H. Bennison conveys the emotions, terror, uncaring coldness of the shifter life. It is almost impossible to not become invested in this story. The characters have so much emotion to offer.

Talk about Agnst...trouble and what the heck...

This book is full of everything that makes for a great read! Poor Deacon has his hands full, The old ways say his Dad must die for him to become the new Alpha, that goes against everything he believes in. Then their is the Pitts and on top of everything else their gonna end up killing a defenseless omega. So he steps in and saves Logan, who turns out to be a feisty lil Omega who gives Decan a good run for his money. Over all this is an extremely well developed and well written book. The character development and the plot flows and all of the secondary characters are so well developed. The narration by Mr. Benson added so much more to the over all enjoyment to this listeners pleasure. An avid reader/listener in Rock Tavern, NY.

Great voice

I really liked the sound of the guys voice. There are some audiobooks that I can't listen to because of the voice. This is a voice I could listen to all day. I already new that I liked the story because I read the book when it came out. I love Preston Walker books. It gives me a way to destress. There is no major drama and that's what I look for. Listen to audiobooks is my way to escape the drama that is real life.

Deacon & Logan

Deacon is unsure of himself and as the future Alpha of his pack. He is also pretty closed minded and does things because of "tradition." Omega Logan does not see the purpose of omegas fighting and is thrown into a terrible situation. Logan is great to stand up for what's right, even when his own situation is not good or stable.

Interesting story and entertaining

Logan is an omega sent to the Omega Pits by his family to fight to his death. Deacon is the Alpha who comes to his rescue. They come together and soon a baby is on the way. But the happily ever after isn't going to come easy. They come from different worlds and have different views... They will need to learn from each other to find a way to stay together. I really enjoyed this story. The characters were interesting and likeable. Their love story entertaining, sweet and sexy. 

Narration is done by Corey H Bennison. Clear recording and voicework. Story comes to life.

archaic traditions rethought

The barbarism of the bait pit made my stomach lurch!! After he saves Logan , he challenges him?? WTH Deacon!!! Mixed messages! I liked that Logan and Howie made Deacon rethink his old beliefs and traditions, but it took him much too long to wize up. smh!! I voluntarily listened to this and am giving an honest review. The narrator was good.

An mpreg shifter story

Deacon finds his mate Logan tied up and fighting for his life in the omega bait pits, a tradition for omegas. It took Logan going feral and running off, and Deacon's dad telling his story about his time in the pits before Deacon would realize just how wrong and dangerous the pits are. Deacon learns there's more to being a good alpha than being in charge. This is a beautiful story about love and acceptance, patience and trust. It definitely tugs on the heart strings.
Narrator Corey H. Bennson does a wonderful job and I look forward to listening to more from him.

Warrior Omegas

The first book in the series was better. This one the alpha and omega had a lot of problems. Sort of felt a little to angsty. But in the end they worked it out. I wish there was more character development such as a date or wooing. I wish I would of had more insight of the omegas in the pit. How did packs have enough omegas if they risked loosing them. Made it seem like they had no worth. Even if they didn’t have the pit I didn’t feel pack love or loyalty. The narration was great and the length was just right. Worth listening to.

Fighting for Omega’s rights!

Logan is a strong omega who doesn’t believe they should fight each other for Alpha’s entertainment. When he is sent to the pit, he finds something he never thought he would.
Deacon is a kind Alpha but influenced by other bullies. The story is heartbreaking yet full of hope and change for the next generations. Ioved Logan and felt for him the whole book. ❤️

as good as the ebook

The story is always 4 or 5 stars, because if I wouldn't like the story as ebook, I wouldn't listen to the audiobook.

The performance from the narrator is also very important for me. I can't listen to a lot, because my English as a non-native-speaker isn't so perfect to follow a whole story over hours, when the narrator speaks too fast or too sloppy. Normally I have to SEE the person, who is talking to me in English. It took me a little bit, to come into the narrator, but at the end, it worked. I only have to take a few breaks between. I'm just not yet finish with the book, but I listen enough to give a review.

PLEASE READ MY RATING SYSTEM!!!

To my ratings:

5* - very very good
it's like an A+

4* - very good and will be often re-listening
it's like an A

3* - it's more then a one-time-listening.
it's like a B

My Review

I enjoyed the storyline but getting the omega to fight for his life put a twist on your story, I am glad he got rescued in the end and fell in love. I am glad the alpha ended the fighting in his area.
