    I was just browsing and happened to find the first book in this

    I was just browsing and happened to find the first book in this series for free, so I thought what the hey right?! Well 2.5 days later I have read books 1-5. I absolutely love this series! At first I found Sienna kind of unlike able  but she grows on you. You go from being annoyed to rooting for her. Crane''s writing style is thoughtful, and he finds the perfect balance of love, hate, sensuality, and grief. I can't wait for the 6th book. After being so disillusioned by recent authors works all being the same, these books were a refreshing change of pace.

    I have read this author's works for a while now and it seems to

    I have read this author's works for a while now and it seems to be that he keeps getting better and better, surprising us with what he is capable of next and how far he is willing to go to write that masterpiece.  
    Well, I believe Omega came pretty damn close to it.  It is full of emotion (to the point where my heart literally broke and tears flew out of my eyes in all directions ), action, and this deeper darker mankind that scares the hell out of me but still pulls me in because it is that captivating.  
    Mr. Crane has a true talent of putting simple words to paper that have the tendency to pull the reader so far into Sienna Nealon's world, it is hard to come back to reality.  And for some of us, it is sad to leave the crazy world of metahumans, the gods of old, and a really kick ass heroine who is one of the bravest and honest people we could ever get to know.  And yes, she is a literary character.  
    My warning to all of those who have not gotten into this series yet is to STOP reading here (this is book 5 so it will definitely have some kind of spoiler in it without it meaning to) and go pick up book one so you can join all of us fans that know The Girl In the Box Series is soon to be a classic along with many others, including Mr. Tolkien and Mr. Lewis.




    We are thrown right into the action; which I really do love about Crane's writing style.  He can write a fight scene worthy of the big screen or video game time.  It is epic indeed!  One of the first things I came to notice about our protagonist this time is how mature she is.  Sienna has came a long way since book four and she shows it with her leading the junior M Squad, her calm demeanor with the team, and the more interaction with Old Man Winters.  I actually came very close to liking his character, because he seemed to having a fatherly interest in Sienna; but he still has this aloofness about him that makes me question his loyalty to her.  But time will tell and it does indeed.




    Reed is still around and I absolutely love Reed!  I have to say he is my favorite male character in this book, besides Kurt.  Yes, I know Kurt can be a douche but I don't know why-but I feel like Kurt is ......Kurt.  Sorry I can't explain anymore than that; it is just this warm feeling I have toward Kurt.  
    And of course, Zack has forgiven Sienna for her failings and they are still working on the relationship between the two of them.  I think the no touching rule bothers Sienna much more than it does Zack and it seems to always be a stresser on their fragile relationship.  But the two seem good together so it works out and we get a little more this time for them.  




    I really love the way Crane used the old gods, for example Thor and Odin, to describe the different powers that some people had.  And there was a lot of references to Chris Hemsworth, which totally works for me because I seriously loved him as Thor, and it is good to see Sienna's humor still in tact.  So if I were to label this would it be possible to say mythology too for it?  I would like to think so because of what Omega holds in their hands.  But that is the beauty of this series: it crosses many different genres and has something for everyone in it, whether it be urban fantasy, science fiction, a little bit of mythology, and romance.  Of course there is also action, suspense, and it is most definitely a thriller; so yeah, something for everyone.  




    Now, I was warned from the author that this could possibly be a tear jerker, and so I will pass along the same warning for you.  There is so many twists, turns, and complete surprises that it will be very difficult to not have one little tear escape.  Then again, you could be like me and whisper to yourself," I will not cry, I will not cry, I will not cry!"  Only to find yourself at the end bawling like a baby because the author, Mr. Crane, decided to put something so heartbreaking in our midst that it was impossible not to let our emotions take over.  
    And you know what?  I love the author even that much more for it.  He has a plan for our favorite hero and though the road there will be sad, happy, terrible, and joyous, I have a good feeling he will help us see the series to its end.  Now, we may not get there unscathed; whether it be sleepless nights, eyes red from crying long and hard, or our thoughts always drifting to Sienna and her plights, causing us to spill milk we are pouring into the kids' cups (okay, I guess I can't blame that one on the book), but we will make it there.  And I know that I will be loving every minute of the journey.  




    I gave Omega five hearts!

    My New Fave Author!

    I started reading this series because (honestly, because the 1st one was free!) I was looking for something easy to read that would help me fall asleep while I recovered from a full hysterectomy. Well, I chose the wrong author for that! I was immidiately hooked...spellbound, while I was bed-bound ;-p I usually get bored with books quickly, because most are easy to figure out after the first couple of chapters. Mr. Crane's style of writing takes so many twists and turns that you never know WHAT or WHO is coming next....and I just love, love, love that in a book. I have become so attached to the characters (yes THAT scene made me cry like a baby) and gotten to where I think of them often (when I'm not able to have my eyes glued to my tablet!) and catch myself mentioning Sienna in conversations, once evn during Grace! That, of course peaked my hubby's curiosity....so now a 50 yr old man that hasn't read a book since he HAD to in high school is reading the series too! My youngest son is reading them while at AIT in Fort Sill. So it has become a nice thing for us all to talk about. I would reccomend this series to ANYONE. There really is a little bit of everything in it for every type of reader. It just covers such a wide range of emotion, danger, mystery, adventure, action, pain, sorrow, humor, history, teen, angst, adult themed issues (nothing R rated!), pretty much everthing you can imagine and lots that you couldn't until you start reading this series. I am still sad about the ending of book 5, but I do thank Mr. Crane for his letter to us all and understand how hard it must have been for him to do what he did. There obviously is a reason for it, and I will be starting book 6 just as soon as I am done typing this. Mr. Crane....thank you sir, for caring enough about your readers to even add that letter to us. Thank you for loving your characters as much as we do. Just know that we trust you and we care about you for caring about us. Thank you for putting your books out when you say you will, and not making us wait forever and day for them to come out. I know that I personally, am excited for the day when th movies come out about "The Girl in the Box"! Because I know they will be bigger than the vampire ones or the Hunger Games. Way better :-)))) HAPPY READING Y'ALL!!!!!! I KNOW YOU WILL ENJOY THIS SERIES AS MUCH AS I AM <3 & XOXO's to my fellow Robert C. Crane fans

    Hello

    Good book amd series but won't read next one as it is pretty obvious what the plot is and she's on her way to Omega. Maybe somewhere along the line, she'll realize that there would be a lot more people alive who deserved to live if she would have killed off the psychos in the first place.
