Blurb: Captain Korden Encarit of the North Star thought he’d lost the most important person in the universe to him – his brother and lover, Rennett.
A year later, Rennett has been found alive, a captive on a hostile planet. Only when their sibling link reactivates does Korden realize how bad the damage is: stripped of his mental strength, Rennett is now a Broken Alpha.
With the help of his friends – ship’s Malorcian healer, Sokel, and his fiery Human mate, Sebastian – Korden must try and heal his brother’s mind and help him adjust to his new status as omega. But Rennett needs a mate, and it quickly becomes clear that no one is willing.
Will Korden give up everything he has worked for – his career, his ship – buck Presidian tradition, and risk the scorn of their father to save his brother?
Review: This is the first book in The Alpha/Omega Verse series.
Captain Korden Encarit of the North Star is experiencing strange symptoms lately. When the doctor and his mate discover how bad it is they help anyway they can. What is causing it? The link to his brother and lover, Rennett, who was taken prisoner a year ago has flared to life again as they grow closer to where he is.
It was absolutely horrible what all Rennett was forced to endure as his captives tortured him and broke the alpha inside him. He is now an Omega with a badly damaged mind who is afraid of everything. My heart broke for this once vibrant, bright man reduced to a shell of his former self.
With Borden’s help after the rescue, Rennet slowly recovers but he will never be the same as he was. I really enjoyed this story with its descriptions of space and the ship they are on. It felt as if I was there.
The one thing that did bug me was why two brothers in an intimate relationship? Thankfully there were not that many intimate scenes and as I usually only read one and skip the rest I was fine with it.
