Omegas must pick a beta to be theirs for life - a guard to protect them wherever they go. Every beta guard is horrifically muted, making it so that they never have a voice or identity outside of their role. Zaran is an omega, old enough to choose his Beta guard. Except, Zaran doesn't believe in the honorary tradition of Omegas and their guards. With his new bonded guard Einar, Zaran must show him he means much more to him than just silent protection. Worse, Zaran must face the bidding- alphas coming from other packs to find strong omegas with special abilities. Abilities like Zaran's, which will bring the deadliest alpha of them all.
