The last chapter made me feel a bit disappointed and empty. BUT DON'T WORRY. Karina Espinosa plans on continuing MG's journey. Karina Espinosa is an amazing storyteller. As a reader, I've noticed the way she has evolved as a writer. For example, Omega has more layers and mystery behind the characters, and I couldn't help getting attached to Mackenzie's friends. I'm hoping that the spin-offs will come out soon.

I've loved all the previous books in this series so far but this is the last in the series, so I wondered if it would live up to my expectations, and how would it end? Would it be such a final ending that the characters could never be revisited, or would the author leave us the reader still having to answer some of the many questions ourselves, leaving the possibility of a return in the future? Once again on this cover the kick-ass Mackenzie Grey is front and centre, with the background being the real image of where the Brooklyn Pack warehouse is. This cover fits perfectly with the rest of the series too. I have to say I also loved the original covers. As the blurb reveals dead bodies are turning up all around New York, some are human, and some are supernatural. Mackenzie and the rest of the Supernatural Investigations Unit have to work out why these deaths are happening, who or what is doing them before they can even plan how to stop them. Mackenzie isn't on top form at all, still carrying a lot of guilt about what happened to best friend, Luna Blu as well as the other Luna's that answered her call to stand up for themselves. Mackenzie has been ignoring her wolf for some time now and finds it extremely painful to shift at all. Lieutenant Briggs head of the SIU has to bring in another lycan to make up the numbers of his officers (you'll learn why when you read the book. I am trying my best here not to give any spoilers!). This new officer that Mackenzie instantly dislikes is Cassidy Chang a member of the Queens' pack. It takes a lot of time for Mackenzie to accept Cas let alone accept his help with her wolf. I mean after the type of attention Mackenzie has had from some wolves you can't blame her for being suspicious of Cassidy and his motives. At one point in the book when Mackenzie has reached out to Bash, and things are still unresolved, he turns up at her flat and upon finding Cassidy there jumps to the conclusion Mackenzie has "moved on" and is in a relationship with him. The thing about Mackenzie and Bash they are so stubborn around each other. If they would just sit down and talk through everything with each other they could sort out any problems and move on either together or apart. I seriously wanted to shout at them both at times in this book. Another wolf who needs a good shaking & talking to is Jackson who can't seem to get over the fact the love of his life is now a vampire, as well as the fact his brother Jonah is staying and working in Scotland. . . . and then other things happen to him. . . . Jonah is the one who has a right to mope about and be moody etc but what he does. . .well. I know this probably isn't making a great deal of sense but trust me when you read the book...wow! As the plot develops it becomes clear that all these deaths are somehow tethered to Mackenzie. First she must break this connection and then face the reality of who she is as a human as well as a wolf. She has to kind of learn to coexist and become at one with her wolf, to trust her instincts. This becomes even more needed when she discovers she has another ability which enlarges the ever present target on her back! Of course she has the SIU, with new addition Cassidy, but she soon comes to realise she will need more than her fellow lycans to defeat the "dark force" that is planning to take over not only the supernatural's world but the humans and their world too! We see the return of some evil characters we have already met whom Mackenzie has to battle with and defeat once and for all with her mixed supernatural army of friends behind her. So yes we get another great fix of Sebastian, Jonah and Jackson. Then there's Amy and how she is coping with her new life and the realities of being a vampire. During the battle old partnerships return and new bonds are made, there's even help from some rather unexpected sources too. I could seriously go on and on about this book. I want to talk all about it but not spoil the revelations in the book for other readers. If you have loved the rest of the series then you should really adore this last book. You really go through a load of emotions reading this book, there's times you will smile, times you will want to shout at some of the characters in the book (yep Mackenzie included), and then there's the strong emotion in reaction to how far Mackenzie is prepared to go for, and sacrifice for her best friend, to undo the harm she feels she has caused her. One of the older characters that returns when they are most needed, is Lucian and he had me in tears! I truly love his character, a proper old fashioned gentleman. I love his terms of endearment, when he calls Mackenzie "Pet". I even ended up feeling affection towards a couple of the so called "bad guy" characters. One, is wanted by the SIU, but may also be the one that could help Mackenzie with a personal goal of fixing something for a close friend. The other is Malaki, a member of the Fae...and we all know how the Fae cannot be trusted! To be honest I really don't usually like Fae in books as characters at all, but this is one of the few series with them in, that I do really enjoy them in. Obviously my favourite character is a "no brainer" it's Mackenzie, the kick-ass, no nonsense, female lycan who wants to change the existing "traditional" role of Luna's. Mackenzie is an idol/hero to the young Luna's. Mackenzie has managed what was initially considered impossible and has managed to persuade some of the Alphas and packs to reconsider their treatment of Lunas. A change that will continue to be slow and a learning experience along the way. To say I loved the book is kind of an understatement! The way the books ends is good. I'd say some "issues" are left for the reader to decide how they will end. For me the way things were left, still left me with questions, as well as wanting even more. Maybe Karina will revisit these characters again? Or maybe they will be featured in another series? Or there could be more books at a later date? (I hope so!). My first thoughts as I finished were. . . Karina! really!? That can't be the absolute end! I still want more, I want more about the different Supernatural Investigations Unit, more of the Brooklyn Pack and the possibilities new Luna's will bring. So to sum up I've truly loved, and adored reading this series from the very beginning to the very end. It would be so amazing to re-visit these characters a little down the line maybe. . . .? I can wish for more, you never know? To Karina I want to say thank you for a fantastic series, filled with characters so brilliant, I have become so attached to and don't want to believe I have to say goodbye to them!

    um wow! That ending, I really love Kenzie and the world she finds herself into in this series. I am still on a book high and am sad to see this series end. I really enjoyed getting to new the characters, big and small. Karina is so detailed with her writing you can see the words and characters leap off the page at you. You can vividly see in your mind what's being written. I really love the way she ended this series, even if she did tear my heart out. With Omega I felt myself more drawn to Bash um wow!

You can vividly see in your mind what's being written. I really love the way she ended this series, even if she did tear my heart out. With Omega I felt myself more drawn to Bash than Jonah, although my heart still went out to him. Kenzie is still finding herself in so much drama, even if she doesn't want it, its being brought to her regardless. Her "step" brother and the Fae Queen are out for revenge and will stop at nothing to get what they want. Even if that means taking those close to Kenzie. My emotions were all over the place with Omega, I loved everything about it. I felt we got to see another side of Mackenzie. We knew she was head strong and powerful, but we also knew she was vulnerable and we got to see more of that vulnerable side of her. It made her feel more real, more relatable. She finally realized that although she was kick ass, she wasn't undefeatable. This was a big wake up call for her. It was either fight for those she loved or give up and risk not only her life but theirs as well. Def my fave series Ive read in 2017, highly recommend reading this, especially if you love shifters, witches, vampires and love triangles. This series will keep you wanting more, even at the very end.

Her first three books were well crafted and well thought out development of not only McKenzie Gray but all the the supporting characters. It was so well done that death of even the most minor characters tore a piece out of me. I mourn their loss like I would a friend. This book, in contrast, felt abbreviated and rushed. The final development of McKenzie's character and ability felt like check boxes that needed to be checked off before all the loose ends are tied off and put in the shelf. Her struggle to comes to terms with her losses and her growth as a person afterwards was given the short shrift. In the end there was so much more that could be done with her if the author gave herself the time and patience to develop it and, by doing so, would have brought McKenzie into the pantheon of great kick-ass heroines in the vain of Kate Daniels, Raine Beneres, or Shanti of Warrior Chronicles. Can we have a do-over?

    Unexpected The first start of the book is a major disappointment for me. Mackenzie is moon bound again and behaving like an idiotic waste of space and I had to stop myself from flipping through the pages in the hope that the story picked up steam and became interesting again. The beginning was drab, the middle pretty good but the ending could have been better. However the series as a whole was enjoyable to read.

    The end of an Era It is not often that I wait for books but in the case of the Mackenzie Grey series, it has been three years of intense devotion for this series.

Dubbed t The end of an Era It is not often that I wait for books but in the case of the Mackenzie Grey series, it has been three years of intense devotion for this series. Sadly after years of intense battles, estranged friendships, and complete vulnerability; we have come full circle where Mackenzie returns home to New York City. Omega is the last installment of the Mackenzie Grey series where we find Mackenzie at home licking her wounds after the battle for freedom of the Luna’s in Scotland. Dubbed the Lone Wolf, Freedom Princess, and my personal one, Badass with a chip on her shoulder; Kenzie has a very Daenerys Targareyen situation where she has plenty of titles but in her regard, it is more of a case of survivor's guilt and PTSD. Mackenzie has immersed herself with her job at the SIU, a branch of law and order for the Supernatural amid humanity with a disturbing case of missing drained people and all evidence points to one source--Vampires. Unfortunately, all does not appear as such and now the SIU must find out who and why these deaths are occurring before there are any more victims. Teamed up with her human partner Garrett Michaels, Mackenzie works closely with her team but it is quickly discovered good old Kenzie has a secret of her own. In fact she has plenty but the question remains how long will she survive if she keeps everyone at bay? In good old Mackenzie fashion, she finally realizes she is completely vulnerable, alone, and isolating herself completely from everyone in her pack. Amy and Lucian have cut her off her indefinitely, Bash (Swoon) is but a memory at this point, and even poor Michael’s is feeling the brunt of Kenzie’s state of mind. She is a downward spiral and rock bottom has pointed swords waiting for her fall. At the brink of a breakdown, Mackenzie is forced to deal with her feelings or it will cost her even her job! In a damned if she does or damned if she doesn’t predicament, Mackenzie has to go down memory lane if she is ever to cope with her decisions. It is quickly discovered that Mackenzie is not the same person but her snakry attitude never misses a beat. In truth, as a reader, we’ve finally glimpsed into the fragile state of her life and it is powerful! The saying, there is strength in weakness, comes to mind and in our girl Mackenzie’s case, it is the absolute truth. As a loyal fan, this part of Mackenzie’s life in Omega gripped me and took me down the perilous emotional journey and loved every page of it. Karina Espinosa has a gift of bringing in old characters and creating new genuine characters, which really makes a reader want them to have their own spin-off series (hint-hint, I’m looking at you Bobby Wu). Give me a good anti-hero any day of the week and I am there like Victoria Secret’s semi-annual sale, hooked and ready to splurge on sexy, sinful, and downright just naughty unmentionables and that Warlock is my new crush. Sorry Bash! We have the new wolf in Mackenzie’s life. Calm yourselves, he is no Bash replacement but a loyal lycan and that is exactly what Kenzie needed during this intense moment of her life. Granted, Kenzie didn’t make it easy, (that’s our girl) but in the end, good old Chang comes through for our girl. We have a cameo with Miss Karina’s new character, Raven Romero for her new upcoming series, The Last Valkyrie and last but certainly not least, we get a mini-tantrum from Miss Diana Stone herself. Slutty and stupid as ever but still hilarious! Y’all this is just the BEGINNING! Do you see what I am saying? This book is chock full of emotional roller coasters and we haven’t even got to the good part--The Battle of the Queens! It is just as intense as it sounds but prepare your hearts fans because a box of Kleenex was used while reading this book. Normally, my reviews have the pros and cons but I could honestly find no con during reading. The plot was well thought out and written, the book was paced well, and you can see the full growth of not only the character but the writer as well. Kudos to you Miss Karina, you have outdone yourself. Listen folks, if you haven’t read the series, let me tell you, you don’t know what you’ve been missing but if there is one thing for sure, it’s a fantastic Urban Fantasy series. But in the words of LeVar Burton, “you don’t have to take my word for it,” go check it out today!

    Omg this is the week, where it seems one day after another I am reviewing the final book of a series. Just yesterday it was the last one for The Dark Romeo Trilogy by Sienna Blake and today I am saying farewell to my girl Mackenzie Grey! I was heartbroken yesterday, and I am equally as much today too! Mackenzie holds a special place in my heart as one she is a badass and two well because she was my first lycan I really really loved!

Just yesterday it was the last one for The Dark Romeo Trilogy by Sienna Blake and today I am saying farewell to my girl Mackenzie Grey! I was heartbroken yesterday, and I am equally as much today too! Mackenzie holds a special place in my heart as one she is a badass and two well because she was my first lycan I really really loved! I discovered the original trilogy back in April (so not that long ago really) and I totally fell head over heals in love with the books. I think we can fairly say that I was very enthusiastic about the books and I was so happy when I discovered that Karina was writing the final chapter in Omega. I have a hard hard time letting go of beloved characters, anyone who reads my reviews on my blog knows that, and this one guys belongs that same family! At the start of Omega, quite a bit of time has passed since the ending of Alpha and a bit of the heartbreak that follows the transformation of Mackenzie's bestie into a vampire... I am saying this in the hopes that you have read the first 3 books otherwise what I am talking about my good friends will make no sense whatsoever for you! So.... yes, my girl Kenzie misses her bestie and is quite down whilst a series of murders are happening in New York. We have come full circle friends! Though she has isolated herself, it is clear she misses Bash and the other wolves though she is still hellbent on not belonging to a pack. One of things that I liked about Omega is that we went a bit more into the murders investigation and that brought back fond memories of the Sookie Stackhouse books. After all, both series deal with the supernatural world and each have some sort of murder/mystery/something to solve in between daily life events. I am not going to dig into too much detail and spoil the final for you but I can tell you that we have an epic battle and a lot of things are resolved! Well duh!!!... However, because I love you all I need to warn you that you will facing a very sad sad sad I cried so hard moment and I am still barely recovering! I will not say anything further, but you will know what I am talking about when you get there. As I am typing this review, I am tearing up again thinking about it. Honestly guys and girls, this book is fantastic and I really hope maybe we can get a standalone little adventure with the gang sometimes in the future! (pretty please Karina!!! I did say I have a hard time letting go...) I will say that you cannot Omega as a standalone you will need to have read all 3 previous books to really fall in love with the series and the really fantastic characters in it! Lets be honest, you do not have to love vampires, werewolves or other supernatural beings to enjoy this series, at the end they are job people and that is a universal story! I am going to very HIGHLY recommend Omega and all the series to be fair! Plus, aren't those covers really lovely?

    I think this release had me the most excited in a while for a new book. I fell for this main character who isn't really like anyone I have read in a long time. She is fresh. She is who she is. She accepts that. But with the weight of everything that has happened in the short amount of time that it has. The loss of friends, and people she never knew, as the past is shining lights on the future that was paved long ago. Somethings you just never can let go. And when you want to. How? I love the fact I think this release had me the most excited in a while for a new book. I fell for this main character who isn't really like anyone I have read in a long time. She is fresh. She is who she is. She accepts that. But with the weight of everything that has happened in the short amount of time that it has. The loss of friends, and people she never knew, as the past is shining lights on the future that was paved long ago. Somethings you just never can let go. And when you want to. How? I love the fact that the main character shows, at some points you think overload of emotional restraint. That she doesn't ever see what is right in front of her. She has always gone to great lengths to protect the ones she loves, her pack. But will she be willing to make yet another sacrifice? Will she finally choose and explore the weird tension between her and Bash? How can anything ever seem right when it all gets everyone she loves hurt. Her best friend won't talk to her, she is back at work doing what she loves, but when she needs help the most, sometimes you just need to get away for a minute to think. Or walk to a Chinese restaurant. Mackenzie will have to learn, like always, the hard way to open her mind and sometimes just enjoy life. This book does conclude Mackenzie story and it is not a let down at all. The emotional rollercoster and huge crying for me at the end was understandable but also unexpected at the same time. Ans one of the best parts for me is when a certain man says that he will not let her be alone again. You just fall for these characters who think they are all doing good, but somehow manage to screw up somewhere and manage to fix the broken bone. You can feel the pack within this odd ball group of misfits. The summary here is that is amazing author has gotten you to fall for a bunch of amazing misfits who just want to be who they are. Laugh and snicker at Mackenzie as she pulls yet another trick after another so that she can do what she does best. Watch two brothers protect the girl they love, but only one can have her heart. And friends after friends grow on you as you pray they make it out alive and in some amazing fashion that sometimes I wouldn't have guessed happen.

    Such a good end! I felt so completed by it even if the end cut off a bit early in my opinion. It still worked because everything had really been tied off excellently. I had my doubts at the beginning especially when I found out that Mackenzie had a huge backslide and was moon bound again. I did not expect that. I was also surprised by her not talking to Bash and Jonah and Lucien and Amy for so long! How?! How do you have this crazy epic moment in the third book and then go to nothing? That was h Such a good end! I felt so completed by it even if the end cut off a bit early in my opinion. It still worked because everything had really been tied off excellently.

I was also surprised by her not talking to Bash and Jonah and Lucien and Amy for so long! How?! How do you have this crazy epic moment in the third book and then go to nothing? That was hard to read but it also fit with Mackenzie’s character. When Bash talks about knowing she was outside the Brooklyn Packs warehouse sitting for hours listening to them talk, my heart just burst. That would have been so hard! That’s one of the things l loved about Bash and Mackenzie and why in my opinion they worked. He always seemed to know when to push and not to push and how (with a few temper tantrums every once and a while). I really felt frantic the whole time Kenz started planing on sacrificing herself! I thought, surely this is not how this book ends! There were just so many good parts of this book! Once again, loved king Alexander! Loved Cassidy and loved that he wasn’t all smitten with her. At first when he seemed like he was I was really annoyed. Like come on, does this girl poop gold or something! This series def goes down as one of my favourite! I read it on kindle unlimited but I will be buying them for my library! I loved all the girl power and how Mackenzie was only ever just herself no matter if it was a king, super hot wolves, the wolf culture she came into or other supernaturals always trying to make her be something different. There is a good lesson there! You might not be able to do everything perfect or the way people perceive it should be done but that doesn’t mean your way won’t work just as well. 5 stars for sure!

    The stunning conclusion to the series and decisively one of the top ten books I've read in 2017. Mackenzie hasn't grown as much in the year since book three ended as I might've thought, in fact she really regressed. But with everything she'd been through in such a short time, it's understandable. But despite, or perhaps because of, her regressions, self-recriminations, sarcasm and love for blaming everything bad on herself; she really grew a lot in this book.

But despite, or perhaps because of, her regressions, self-recriminations, sarcasm and love for blaming everything bad on herself; she really grew a lot in this book. She was no longer as cocky but still had confidence. The end chapter began to mend the damage from Karina ripping my heart out in the Battle of the Queens and stomping all over it. I wish we could learn what happens with the surviving members of her ragtag Pack and where she goes from here....But the book ended where it made sense to end. I loved this series and how very kickass but dramatically flawed our heroine was. Plus the fact she had to pay for her mistakes with some fairly tragic costs. There's no sugar coating or extreme suspension of disbelief over her making such impulsive decisions - and I love that the shrink didn't hesitate to call her out on it.

    Karina why do you kill me so!? My heart is literally broken!!! GAH!!!! Firstly, I have to say that this isn’t the last book, according to Karina’s Facebook there will be 2 more separate Mackenzie series...I’m beyond excited to read those by the way... so for all the people who felt like this shouldn’t have been the ending, well it’s not, so chill. Secondly, Can I just say this this book completed me? Like Mackenzie finally put on her big girl panties and decided she needed to deal with her ish! I Karina why do you kill me so!?

Secondly, Can I just say this this book completed me? Like Mackenzie finally put on her big girl panties and decided she needed to deal with her ish! I was happy about that. Also any book that can make me cry and my heart break and gives me those unexpected OMG moments is a book that deserves 5 trillion stars! ⭐️ And thirdly, this series as a whole was one of the easiest reads ever! I say this because it captures your attention and before you know it the book is over. Mackenzie is all of us and reading from her perspective is really enjoyable and entertaining. If you haven’t read this book then you need to now!

    Very exciting I couldn’t put it down and had to finish it before I fell asleep. There were a few things I didn’t like in the story... but they would be major SPOILERS. Main thing was, in vague terms, again Kenzie didn’t tell the person she wanted to cure that the cure would cost someone’s life. Had that person known, she would not have been interested in it and the other person would not have decided to sacrifice themselves for her. Plus she’s not going to take the cure anyways, probably, now tha Very exciting I couldn’t put it down and had to finish it before I fell asleep.

Plus she’s not going to take the cure anyways, probably, now that she can kick butt in battles. So that person we loved is dead for no good reason. It was a complete waste, in my opinion. He was wounded, but not fatally. It was like the author wanted to end that story line. I was really upset about it. Especially as we know she won’t want the cure anyway. But either way, the story was exciting and our Kenzie definitely did some much needed growing and maturing. It was definitely a fun read... until someone important died, at least.

    So I’ve had the luxury of reading these books back to back as if they were one novel and I can say that the author has created a really good and intriguing story line. Reading these books this way has also allowed me to see how the characters have developed over time without any gaps in between, with that being said most of the characters have developed in positive ways except Mackenzie Grey. She has become the most annoying character in this book. In a series, you expect characters to shift, ha So I’ve had the luxury of reading these books back to back as if they were one novel and I can say that the author has created a really good and intriguing story line.

She has become the most annoying character in this book. In a series, you expect characters to shift, have the experiences that they have gone through in previous books to change them, but Mackenzie hasn’t seems to learn anything. This trait seemed to be the most annoying part of the book and I found myself rolling my eyes and saying oh here we go again. Again the story was great and found myself still enjoying it, just not so much when Mackenzie was on the page.

    I am so over MacKenzie! 3 stars. Mackenzie's personality and self involvement really grates in this to the book's detriment. After 4 books a smidgeon of romance would help too. To me this was a slower book than the one's preceding it and it all led to a rather flat HEA. Ms Espinosa has a lot going for her but she really needs to work on her ability to write emotion, her age appropriate characterisation and please, please, please - her use of idiom.

Ms Espinosa has a lot going for her but she really needs to work on her ability to write emotion, her age appropriate characterisation and please, please, please - her use of idiom. Almost all the idioms used are incorrect, the spellings or basic words are off too eg: peak instead of peek and eventually that gets a bit annoying too. Grammarly would help or just getting a decent proof reader. Despite this I would still recommend this series to readers that aren't picky and are looking for a fast paced Rachel Vincent or Kelley Armstrong like Werewolf tale albeit not of that quality.

    Good read This book is the fourth and last of the series. All books are mainly told from Kenzies POV. She is strong but always running away not able to deal with all the emotions. I didnt like that this book started a year after the 3rd book. In that year Kenzie fell apart literally. She lost everything. In the end one man was lost and the other became her soulmate. Not withstanding her soulmate never said he loved her but rather showed her. It would have been nice to read about their mating cere Good read This book is the fourth and last of the series.

Not withstanding her soulmate never said he loved her but rather showed her. It would have been nice to read about their mating ceremony and whether Amy took the potion. If Jackson got back with Amy. It just finished with a very sad funeral after a very quick fight with the queen of the fae and Drew. With that was a strong storyline. I enjoyed reading the series. Recommeded

    I loved this fourth and sadly final book in the Mackenzie Grey series. This shifter series follows kenzie, a lone wolf, a Luna that doesn’t conform. If you like shifter books then this is definitely the series for you. I loved the fact that the hero in this series was female even in the male oriented world of werewolves.

    Wicked ending! This series is awesome! It makes no excuses much like Mackenzie! Totally loved it! I was so taken with the revelation at the very very very end that I had to go back and read Ophelia's vision. Alexander, ranulf, Lucien, Amy, cas and all the rag tag pack characters I just love. Bash! I knew it! So pleased on that development! Jonah. My heart breaks. Not so much for how it ends as much as for the damage that was done. A tortured soul that now has peace.

I burned through all 4 books and the plot never becomes stale. It's all action, suspense and laughter the whole time!

    Omega is the fourth and final book in the series. This book has yet another time jump, but it works to further the story. We have a majority of our answers at this point, but there are some important answers we are still missing. This story opens up and we get another very much changed Mackenzie. Honestly, I feel for her. She has had to go through so many different changes throughout this series. This book is the perfect conclusion to this wild trip we have been on.

    I typically don't re-read books/series. However, the characters and events of this series have stuck with me. I had this book on my backlog to read and wanted to make sure I remembered all events correctly. So I re-read the whole series one right after the other. I think this book was by far the best book of the series! I absolutely love Mackenzie and her pack. Mackenzie is a kick-ass, take action and apologize later kind of woman.

    She finally embraced herself! She accepted help after being stubborn and she was able to change the world again. After the Luna uprising and the changing up Lycan law, she has to lead every one against crazy Dru and Drew. I don't even know to take all that happened. I understand Jonah doing what he did, but why did it have to be him? If it hadn't been him, who would have done it? I am so happy that Amy and Lucian and Jackson love her again.

    Mackenzie Battles the Fae Queen The saga of Mackenzie reaches a climax in this book. She still has alot of self doubt and self pity. But she still cares about her friends and make shift family. Her relationship with her biological father changes as they face battles together. Her relationship with Amy at first appears to be lost but over time and with a common enemy it improves.

    I can't say enough about this series, solid start and definitely a solid finish. Mackenzie is brash and out spoken but she will do whatever she can to save her friends. In Omega especially, she has come so far, finally accepting who she is and what her role is in the coming war. I hope that there will either be a spin off series or we will see more of Mackenzie's adventures in the future.... This is one series, I really DIDN'T want to see end!
