Description from goodreads :

 The uneasy truce between the preternatural species of New Orleans has shattered, with wizards and elves, shifters and vampires—not to mention the historical undead—struggling for ultimate control of the city, including the humans who still think they’re atop the food chain.

They aren’t, however—and the Summer Prince of Faerie wants them to know it.

Stuck in the middle? One unemployed wizard sentinel. For DJ Jaco, war makes for strange bedfellows as she finally embraces her wizard-elven heritage and strikes a deal with the devil so she and her ragtag band of allies can return to defend her hometown. After all, when the undead French pirate Jean Lafitte is working in the mayor’s tourism department, things could go horribly wrong.

War is coming to New Orleans just in time for Mardi Gras, with the elves and wizards lined up on opposite sides, the shifters with a new leader, the vampires promising loyalty to the highest bidder, and the soul of the Crescent City resting on the outcome of the civil war going on in Faerie between the rival princes of summer and winter.

Mardi Gras Day is approaching fast, the faeries have infiltrated almost every parade, and the line between friends and enemies grows thin as DJ tries to stave off open warfare on the St. Charles Avenue parade route.

Laissez les bons temps rouler…but be careful, or the good times might roll too close for comfort. 

My opinion:
          Fabulous, a rollercoaster for emotions as once the story picks up there isn't a slow moment left there will be tears, there will be touching moment, there will be some humorous one and some very angsty ones. We are immersed in an adventure that doesn't allow us a reprieve we must know what will happen and we better not get interrupted for nothing ^^;;

We sure waited to get  the end of Dj adventures in this arc  but it was so, so well worth it... a real page turner with old characters we meet again with pleasure  like some fae hunters ( love faulkner) new one  like Gruff a so cute and funny corgi but so much more and i don't want to spoil too much . But get some tissues near you will need them and the little Corgi isn't the only one who will win you over i'm sure like Pen who can make you swoon or laugh depending on his menu.

Really this was a great read, we get to see how the events impacted the characters and how some got more mature and some not. There are twists to keep us on edge and this story couldn't be a better way to end this arc ( because yes i certainly hope to see more of the gang but rest assured there isn't a cliffhanger or questions unanswered ( at least not any that can't wait a full novella^^)

So yes it's better to have read the series to enjoy this one fully  and i can't recommend you this series strong enough but that being said it should be possible to read this one like that as we get enough info about the background to understand most of what happen but you if have teh opportunity to start by book 1 don't hesitate it just get better and better.

Score:  5/5

Short description from goodreads :

 Is the woman he once loved…

The traitor they’re searching for?

Former Special Forces soldier Jace Eakin must find the mole inside Omega who’s leaking intel to a terrorist mastermind. Despite their complicated history and the fact that she is keeping a secret, he can’t believe it’s SWAT team leader Lillian Muir. As they give in to long-denied passion, Jace vows to protect Lillian with his life. But he’s been wrong about her before…

My opinion:
          So captivating, i always liked Lillian but i wouldn't have guessed such a traumatic past....a difficult one yes.....so much torture no; so i was really happy to get an insight on her life before it happened and after as well as learning what made her the warrior she is..
Jace is a wonderful character, very open to other and i loved his life plans to help others it really suit him and it's exactly what Lillian needs a strong man not fearing that she may be even stronger than him

Tension and suspense is really high in this instalment and  it's a real page turner, i loved that beside the events of this book between Lillian and Jace we made progress on the red line and on the villains. The author made twists we were not expecting and we can't wait to see the end of Damien

Good stand alone but so much better if you read the series in order.

Score:  5/5

Short description from goodreads :

  Working together would bring down a killer

But her secrets could tear them apart…

Hayley Green never wanted to see Omega special agent Cain Bennett again. Ever. He seduced her, then sent her to prison for hacking, and Hayley’s only just started piecing her life back together. Except now Cain needs Hayley’s help to catch a murderer. Their past is colliding with their still-smoldering attraction…and the only thing more dangerous than the killer is the secrets Hayley’s been keeping.

Omega Sector: Under Siege

My opinion:
          Very interesting and good stand alone even if i did feel like i missed some elements by not reading book 3 yet ( will do soon)
i really loved how Cain and Hayley got over their issues step by step despites all what was happening around them...they both tried to do well in their own way .Hayley is strong and protective, she is also aware of her faults and i really appreciated that about her.
Cain is a good man, he never expected to hurt Hayley as much and he is ready to help her when she needs it the most and i particularly loved how appreciative he was of her skills not taking shame of being less talented in that domain than her and seeing a bit of Ashton and Chloe that was simply too cute!

a very good installment in the Omega series

Score:  4,5/5
