Book 1 of a 3-part gay mpreg shifter series set in an Stone Age fantasy world.

In a tribe of stallion shifters, Alvarr is smaller and more delicate than the rest of his tribe-brothers. But he is also a rare stallion mage, a male shifter who can perform magic... a talent only found in mares.

A Joyfully Jay review.

4 stars


Stallion Mage was a very enjoyable read. I mean it hits all the right notes from start to finish. It was also incredibly sexually awkward. The story is fairly straightforward, but written in such a way that it evokes emotion and draws the reader in. It blends fantasy and has a very minimal amount of historical flare. It’s often easier to think of this as a completely fantastical story, even though the author suggests it had a prehistoric setting. It is hard not to f

Not for me. A serial and also too much abuse of a hero for me.

This was a strange little hallucinogenic story about horse shifters that I was definitely not expecting.I'm still uncertain how to take it but since it introduced me to an entirely different kind of experience I want to read the next offering.

This was a highly original shifter story that really took me by surprise. One of the more unusual things about it is that the shifters main form is actually that of their animal self with the characters only occasionally shifting into their human form.

We follow the story from Alvarr’s point of view, who is a bit of a misfit in the stallion shifter tribe he lives with. He’s very inquisitive and has a gentle, loving heart, but physically he seems to be lacking as he is far smaller and more delica

Feels like it's only half finished

Hoping there's more to come. The story's too good to leave hanging. These 2 just have to get back together. And, of course there's the mystery.

I've read many, many shifter stories but this was the first one that had horses. One of the things that I liked most about this story is that the shifters/characters spend more of their time in horse form rather than as humans. Another fun aspect is that it takes place in the Stone Age. This gave the book a unique perspective and the author did a great job at assuming those roles.

I was able to connect with the MC's right away and I think you are going to love them just as much as I do!

What a surprise!

I’ve never read a horse/stallion shifter story.. not from lack of wanting but mostly because everyone is stuck on wolves.

It turns out, horse shifters are awesome! I really liked that the characters are mostly in their stallion form in this story, their mannerisms are spot on and I’m sure the author did some research on horses.

So, there is shifted sex in this. Sooo.. in depth description of horse cocks and what they do with them. 😄

This story was actually super unique and I was

What in tarnation-

I can feel my soul leaving my body because I just read gay horse porn and liked it. Okay so there were like only a couple of scenes but still. The world building is also nothing to sneeze at because it's got me INTENSELY curious about what happens next but what in the -heck-

Ok tbh this book is more like 4.5 stars but just because I wasn't truly ready even though it clearly stated 'dead dove, do not eat' I'm just giving it the full amount because this was BOLD

Wow a very enjoyable story



I am definitely looking forward to the next addition to the series I found the storytelling very compelling, I was disappointed when the book came a an end.

A copy of this book was provided for free by the author in exchange for an honest review via the MMRG Don’t Buy My Love Program.

I'm not sure where to start with this one! I loved the idea of the book and from the blurb it sounded really good. But. I closed the book feeling kinda confused but I'm not sure what I'm confused about. I know clear as mud. I'm going to talk about some of the things that stick out in my mind. ***MAJOR PLOT SPOILERS AHEAD. PROCEED WITH CAUTION!!***

This is truly a different read from most shifter books but to be honest I found that I enjoyed this read. Though the main characters spend most of their time in the shifter form instead of their human form, I found myself reading this book and forgetting that point for the most part. That is truly incredible in its own that AO Spade was able to write this book in that way and make me forget at that same time. This really was a good read. I could not honestly say if I believe this to be a Stone A ...more

My Thoughts on Secret Omega

The first book is a little on the dry and boring side because there is a lot of exposition and not enough dialogue. The exposition does pay off in the later books but does no service to the first. There are times where I skipped pages just to know when the next dialogue would come in and there were a lot of pages in between. We are terribly confined to Alvarr's mind but the first book is instrumental in laying down the foundations for the characters and the story. It i

I felt like it ended in a cliffhanger but it didn't really. Looking forward to the next book which I hope is out soon because I know I will start forgetting characters and details. I would not put this under mpreg as of yet tho because if the author didn't tell us at the end of the book or if we didn't see it in the title as "Stallion Mage: Secret Omega: Mpreg Romance" readers probably wouldn't think it was mpreg.

I was given a copy of this book for an honest review though Don’t Buy my love Goodreads MM romance group.
I really enjoyed this story. I’ve never read anything about horse shifters before but I was suppressed by how much I liked it. That and I love mpreg! Although there really isn’t and mpreg in this story. I have down graded it a star because it’s only a partial story. Don’t get me wrong I’m really looking forward to reading the next bit and it’s not really a cliffhanger, but it doesn’t finish.

Exactly what I wanted, horses fucking.

But in all seriousness, there is really good character development and world building, and those traits are often non-existent in shifter ABO type stories. The sex was just a minor part of the overall story. The plot of a rare mage stallion (when usually only mares are mages, i.e. omegas) living among other stallions who isolate him or bully him is really engaging. I found myself eager to go back to reading even in the subway where people might glimpse pas

Falls Short

I HATE CLIFFHANGERS! Great concept and has a very unique storyline which held my attention. Too disjointed though. If culture has no written language or limited written language then it usually has a very strong oral or story telling tradition. None of the characters knew what was going on or why things were happening no stories to guide them. Felt like everyone was standing around waiting for something worse to happen instead of being proactive. I did love the fact that the shifters

This is a wonderful historic romance that had a slow pace and simple plot, which I didn’t mind because the story was character driven. It showed a journey of self discovery and maturity for Alvarr, a horse mage. I love that the writer showed his inner thoughts and his beautiful naive soul, it was done so well it made me see the world through his eyes. I also loved the simplistic language and sentence construction as well as Alvarr’s wonderment and confusion when confronted with nature and tribal ...more

Horse shifters, who knew. The book ends in a cliffhanger and it was interesting enough that I will probably look for part two.
Alvarr is a stallion but he has magic that usually only mares possess. That doesn't make his life easy in the herd of other stallions, to put it bluntly he's an outcast. He doesn't have any friends and noone to help protect him from the bullies. If that's not enough problems for one guy his magic is starting to get out of hand, secrets from the long forgotten past are int

This story was a little different then your normal shifter story. They normally change into their animals for when they need to. With this story that were mostly in there horse form. We see the struggle that Alvarr is having with his tribe. He is a mage and is on the outside of the tribe with all not truly seeing him. Laren is having hard time see what is happening with his tribe. Do not that it does end on a cliffhanger and cant wait to see what happens in the next book. Will we see more of the ...more

I enjoyed this story, though I would like to point out that Omega is not mentioned in this book, nor the concept of male pregnancy. I am sure it will come later in the series but just in case it’s something anyone expects.

I felt bad for Alvarr and while he tried to keep a positive outlook he has pretty much resigned himself to a life alone without even some companionship. He does all he can to help the other stallions but they still keep away from him. I liked the elder confiding in Alvarr and g

3.5 - Not only my first Horse shifter book, but in this world the people are horses first, people second which makes for quite the unique take.

I enjoyed this more than I expected to, especially considering the HORSE SEX! You'd think that would be a deal breaker, but it was surprisingly not bad (or not too bad for me at least), but fair warning that is all you get in this first book.

Definitely going to continue with the series to see how the rest of the story unfolds. 😁

This booklet, the first part of three, took me by surprise: reading the title I expected something trite and unoriginal to dismiss after a few pages.
This was not the case. It is and remains a very easy read, but it is pleasant with decent characterization and world building.
The usual downside is that it is not very long - the three volumes would probably make a short novel - and it is too expensive.

Alvarr struggles to control the magic that most believe he should not have while everyone around him except for the Elders and, occasionally, the leader, Laren ignore him. As he discovers hidden truths about the history of their people, he finds himself searching for answers. Laren struggles with figuring out what he feels towards Alvarr even as he holds their herd together.

This book is about a young earth mage who is a horse shifter the young mage is trying to find out why the land is dying .

This was a decent read interesting take on horse shifter good back story likable characters and of course not so likable ones . Than there's a mystery to solve as too what is making their land die and what really happened in their past .

3.5* could be more

This is a good idea and maybe once having read all of the books in series all will become clear, because at the end of this book no-one has any idea what is going on. Laren annoyed me with the way he treated Alvarr, I understand the mistrust of magic but he was still a member of his tribe.
I hope it makes more sense in the next book.

A very different take on shifters but one which I’m really enjoying. Can’t wait to start the rest of the series!

Story was interesting so far, nice world building. But... the two sex scenes in this book are between the MCs in their shifted (stallion) form, and I'm not sure I'm ok with that.
