Omegaverse has taken off in the last five to ten years or so. With it, we’ve seen plenty of batshit crazy moments—like someone claiming to have “invented” it. We’ve also seen it cross over into the realm of M/F books, even if the trope was represented there early on.
A lot of m/m and queer omegaverse is also mpreg, so I wanted to focus this post on books that were less firmly in that category. While mpreg and omegaverse often go hand in hand, not every omegaverse reader is a huge fan of mpreg.
It was surprisingly difficult to come up with titles that were strictly omegaverse. Some of the titles on this list may have mpreg elements. I’ve tried not to duplicate too many titles from the mpreg list, although there is at least one that appears on both.
Notes on Methodology
Like my mpreg post, this list of omegaverse books was actually fairly challenging to put together. One of the biggest challenges is finding information about forthcoming titles is a lack of public announcements by authors. Lots of authors seemingly don’t advertise their books too far out from the pub date. They may make posts in private groups, on Discord channels, or in newsletters. That can make finding the information more challenging. Others simply don’t make mention of books until we’re basically on top of the release date, probably for a variety of reasons. One might be that they’re busy promoting another book. Another is that they might not have the book’s pub date locked and loaded. (I’ve seen how some indie authors draft.)
So, this post is assembled from publicly available information I was able to find. That means it’s going to become outdated and it will be very incomplete, especially by the time we get to May or June.
Another reason this list may be incomplete is that I was being selective. The post is called Omegaverse Books I’m Looking Forward to. If I wasn’t excited about a book, it didn’t make the list, plain and simple. That may mean a title you’re looking forward to isn’t on the list.
With all that in mind, here are some of the omegaverse books I’m looking forward to reading in 2024!
Villain and the Geek 2 (Wolf’s Mate 7)
Feb. 8, 2023
L.C. Davis (aka Joel Abernathy) was a new-to-me author last year. I have to say, this author has quickly become a favorite. I haven’t enjoyed The Bro and the Beast as much as I enjoyed the God-Bearer series, but I do appreciate the way Davis plays with the worldbuilding trope. It means the series has this sort of satirical quality.
Villain and the Geek is now sort of a second series within The Wolf’s Mate series. The title alone sold me: I do so love some good villains. If they can be redeemed or shown to be complicated? Even better.
This book will be the second entry in the series. If you missed the first one, you still have a bit of time to check it out.
Dragonking (Dragonkin 3)
Feb. 14, 2024
This omegaverse book is another mid-series entry. If you’re a completionist, you may want to go back to Book 1 and start at the beginning.
Me, I’m a bit of a wild card when it comes to reading series books in order. Unless you tell me that I must read Book 1 to make sense of Book 2, I’m just going to hop in wherever I please.
I’m excited to jump back in to Rodman’s writing—I’d read Evil Omega a while ago, which, see above for my notes on “villains.” I loved the premise of the story, and the LI was super cute (if a little dense).
I haven’t visited Rodman’s writing in a little while, so when I saw there was an omegaverse series about dragons, I was pretty excited. We all know how much I like dragons. Getting m/m omegaverse stories with them is just like icing on top.
March 24, 2024
Confession time! I haven’t read much by Nora Phoenix, despite Phoenix being one of The Names in my/m omegaverse and mpreg. I’m planning to rectify that now, adding Dragon’s Surprise to my list of omegaverse books I’m looking forward to in 2024.
Once again, I’ve been reeled in by the promise of dragons in an omegaverse books. Is it me, or are dragons having “a moment” in this space? We have this one from Phoenix about a month after Rodman. I don’t think we should discount Roe Horvat’s Dragons of Ariadne series, which started in 2023. And there are other titles I can think of that fit this bill. Katy Manz has an ongoing dragon series, for example, and the next entry on this list also features dragons within an omegaverse setting.
With all that in mind, I think I’m going to be a very happy reader of omegaverse books in 2024!
But back to Phoenix. Whether you’re a fan of her writing or new to it, if you love m/m omegaverse and dragons, then this is probably a book you don’t want to miss.
Alpha Dragon’s Ferret
May 6, 2024
Next up, a book you may have already seen if you read my list of 2024 mpreg books. Hawke Oakley has become synonymous for me with fun, easy-going reads. I’m hoping this series delivers about the same experience as some of the author’s previous books.
The Alpha Dragon’s Ferret drops in May, and I mean … just look at that title. Alpha. Dragon. Ferrets! What’s not to love about this book? (Take a peek at the cover too. I’m not huge on the illustrated cover trend, because it can muddy the waters about genre, but I think this one is fab.)
This is another series where I’m—surprise, surprise—hopping in late. This is fourth entry in Oakley’s series. Since this one doesn’t hit Kindles until May, you definitely have time to pick up the other books in the series and read them (if you please).
Other Omegaverse Books in 2024
I meant for this list to take us through to June 30th. As I noted above, it was relatively challenging to find author announcements about their books. There are a couple I know about that are coming out after my June 30th cut-off. Since I was having trouble finding titles coming out in the first half of the year, I decided to split the post. I didn’t think I was going to have too much luck finding December 2024 pub dates if I was struggling to come up with ones in June.
Another challenge, as I noted, is that authors don’t necessarily announce their books until closer to the release date. I fully expect we’ll see more omegaverse books from lots of authors in the coming months. For example, I don’t have anything for April or June on this list right now. That doesn’t mean no author is releasing omegaverse books in those months. It means I either couldn’t find the info or I couldn’t find books that I was really, truly looking forward to.
I did find some other books that released in 2023. While I may read some of those titles in 2024, I wanted to make sure I was showcasing 2024 omegaverse books.
What that means is this is a pretty spare list!
Missing a Title?
You might notice a title you’re really looking forward to missing from this list. That doesn’t mean it’s not releasing or even that the info isn’t out there; it might just mean that, for me, it didn’t make the cut.
If you do know about an upcoming title, then shout about it in the comments on this post. It might be exactly what some other omegaverse fans are looking for!
And, of course, you can also sign up for my newsletter to find out about what’s on my TBR in any given month—which will include some 2024 omegaverse books, as well as others. There’s also my Goodreads page (which I am doing better about updating this year!), and, of course, you can always check out my social media to find out what I’m reading, what I’m looking forward to, and what other omegaverse fans are reading too. We check in at least once a month to see what we’re reading—which can be a great way to discover new omegaverse books!
