One mistake can change everything. Ashlyn Calvert finds that out the hard way when a bad decision leads to the death of her best friend, Noah Anderson.

Only Noah isn’t really gone. Thanks to his parents’ company, the Infinity Division, there is a version of him skipping from one dimension to another, set on revenge for the death of his sister, Kori. When a chance encounter brings him face-to-face with Ash, he’s determined to resist the magnetic pull he’s felt for her time and time again. Because falling for Ash puts his mission in danger.

But there’s more going on in Ash’s alternate universe than either of them knows: a mysterious project called Omega. A conspiracy spanning multiple Earths and revolving around none other than Ash. Its creators would do anything to keep Omega secret…

Anything.

 

 

In the first book we are introduced to the notion that in every world, there’s a constant between people. For Cade it was Kori, and for Noah that’s Ash. However, Ash was never born in his world, and he’s spent every skip to a new world searching for her. Omega is the story of Noah and Ash as they team up together to try to stop not only Dylan but a new enemy on the scene.

Ash lives in a very dystopian world that has some pretty advanced technology. While Infinity is more advanced on her world, the people are treated in a very primitive manner. You see, they have something called tiers. Bottom tiers are the bottom of the barrel as far as society goes, they are looked upon as no more than animals. Then you have the top tier which is your elites. There’s also “listed” which means you are a pariah. You could be burning to death right in the middle of the street and no one would even look twice at you. So, to say that Ash’s world is one that the characters don’t want to spend a lot of time in would be an understatement. However, the cuffs that allow them to jump between dimensions is broken and they’ve found themselves stranded until they can come up with a way to repair them.

While the first book was focused a lot on the logistics of Infinity and what it all was, Omega throws you right into the action. We hit the ground running with this story and there’s not a whole lot of build-up to what’s going on. I liked that with this one we were always moving forward with the story instead of hashing out every little thing. This is definitely not a series you can jump into without reading in order, even though this book deals with two other main characters. Cade, Kori, and Dylan all play predominate parts in this story. We also meet some duplicated characters during their skip travels. This story had a whole different tone and feel to it with the dystopian vibe going on. Plus, Dylan wasn’t the big-bad-villain in this story. Oh no, someone from Ash’s dimension takes that title for this book.

Omega was an enjoyable continuation of the story. I’m glad that this installment focuses on Noah since you didn’t really get to see too much of him in the first novel. Plus, I wasn’t a huge fan of Cade and Kori’s story. Noah is more edgier and a bit of a mystery. Not to mention that you knew he had been searching for his “constant” every time they skipped and I was interested to see who she was and whether or not they would jive, since not everyone has the same personality in each dimension. I’m not sure who the next story will be about, but I’m hoping it will be Dylan. Yes, he’s a bad guy, but I kind of want to know what makes him tick.

 

Favorite quote…

“I had no idea what my future would bring. I didn’t know if I was in love or not. All I knew, all I was sure of, was that this was my Ashlyn Calvert.”
