The bloody war between the Vampire Tribunal and the defiant scathe of Penton, Alabama, rages on, forcing its residents and their bonded humans to retreat into the underground fortress of last resort: Omega. There, Will Ludlam is charged with the care of Penton’s humans, though he longs to fight alongside his vampire brethren. He knows the risks: as the renegade son of the Tribunal’s vicious leader, Will’s capture could doom the resistance. Yet he is determined to prove his worth to his adopted scathe, to his vengeful father—and to former US Army officer Randa Thomas, his beautiful, reluctant partner. Randa has little faith that a former member of the vampire elite has what it takes to fight a war. But as their enemies descend upon Omega, Will’s polished charm—and Randa’s guarded heart—finally give way to the warrior within. Fans of Susannah Sandlin’s Penton Legacy are sure to devour this long-awaited third installment of the steamy paranormal series.

With Lorenzo Caias dead, there’s nobody to protect Penton against the Tribunal and Matthias. Matthias is out for blood and revenge, and with nobody to stop him now Matthias will burn Penton and everybody to the ground no matter what it takes. Will Penton survive Matthias’ wrath?
Omega is the third installment in the Penton Legacy series. Following Redemption and Absolution, Omega continues the story and things are not looking pretty for the Penton community. Everybody needs to fight until the end and to prove once and for all that Penton is not harmful like the Tribunal has lead to believe.
The story is voiced by Will and Randa following the flow of events after Absolution. Will is one of the constant characters in the story and as described, the brain of the community. Randa on the other hand, is a newly promoted Luitenant and not your typical sweet little vampire. She’s tough and devoted YET this is not a life she wanted to live so she got it hard but she’s coping. The relationship between the two wasn’t wift which I enjoyed and I love the chemistry between the two.
The turn of events in Omega is absolutely the bomb! the story took turn after turn and the moment you thought you figure how the story might go, you’ll be hit with another twist out of the blue. The ending is one of the best that I have read so far and it left me dumstrucked for a couple of minutes. Sandlin has given the readers book after book to enjoy, wherein each book outdoes the other in every way possible. Loving the series and will continue to follow it. Can’t wait to read what happens next!
