Review: The Omega Objection (San Andreas Shifters #2) by G.L. Carriger

Omega ObjectionI pre-ordered this book, and immediately tore through it as soon as I had a free evening. I do not regret either of these decisions. Returning to the wacky werewolf pack of San Francisco was a delight, especially with the new focus on characters Isaac and Tank. 

Carriger could have gone the expected ways with both of these characters, in terms of the dominant and submissive roles they each played. Instead, the reversal was a fun discovery that absolutely worked for me.

Both men were also more settled in their narration, rather than the extremes of Max and Bryan, so this was an easier read overall. Carriger did a deft job of laying out the world-building of werewolf pack mechanics in a way that was accessible to the reader but didn’t feel like an info-dump or repeating information that the characters already knew. This all boils down to Carriger finding her writing stride in this new world, and I look forward to visiting it again!

Rating: 5 (out of 5) stars. Cross-posted to Amazon and Goodreads.
