I wasted no time in reading Will’s story, Omega, the third book in the Penton Legacy by Susannah Sandlin. I was so excited when it was downloaded to my Kindle.
Not to ruin anything, but I have to say that this is one of those reads where you are sad when you are finished. I wanted to know so much more about how Will and Randa’s lives were going – along with the rest of the Penton crew. I like it when authors include their previous characters in later books. Ms. Sandlin gave us a lot of Aidan and Krys, Mirren and Glory, and Hannah as well as Melissa and Mark. She also introduced Cage Reynolds, who I really liked. Of course the bad guys – Matthias and Sheldon – had to come back, too. Darn it!
At the start of the book, the Penton crew – vamps and fams – are making the best of living underground in Omega while Matthias terrorizes what remains of the town above ground. The bad guy was really too smart and crafty for his own good in this one! Luckily, the Penton crew has the smart and savvy Will Ludlam and the tough as nails Randa Thomas.
When I read the first two books in the series, I wasn’t sure about Will. I liked him well enough but didn’t really know a lot about him. In Omega, however, wow. Will is such a complex character, he was impossible not to love. Close your ears Aidan and Mirren, but I think Will is my favorite of the three. I really like the big guy and Aidan is sexy as hell, but Will’s past and the things he’s had to overcome make me want to grab him and not let go.
I really enjoyed how Ms. Sandlin built the chemistry between Will and Randa. The character growth and how they came to trust each other was perfect! Plus, we got to meet Randa’s father and one of her brothers. Very cool!!
I truly hope Ms. Sandlin continues with the series in some shape or form. It is just too good not to. She has left things open with Omega Force so I hope that was a bit of foreshadowing for those of us readers wanting more.
If you enjoy paranormal romance and vampires, this series is a must-read. Mark it down and get started. I promise, once you do, you will be hooked.
5 out of 5 stars.
