I'm an offering. A test. A pawn in an agreement I know little about.

Fly to Andorra Sector.
Allow them to experiment.
Mate an X-Clan Wolf Alpha.
Hope for the best.

Those are my orders. My fate. My current existence. There's nowhere to run, and the moon is a clock I can't ignore. One of these Alphas will claim me, assuming our genetics are a match. And if not, well, that

Bex (Beckie Bookworm)


This is a spin-off novella set in the same world as Andorra sector.
Especially adoring that one I was really looking forward to this one.
So here we have Elias and Daciana, Alpha and Omega, the former an X-Clan wolf and the latter Ash wolf.
An experiment between the two packs to see if they are compatible as future mates.
Daciana's upbringing and past experiences have scarred her, her late mother a beta died by the hands of cruel Alpha's and this has shaped her thoughts and left her distrustful and

An amazing story, I only wish it was longer!

We saw glimpses of Daciana and Elias in the first X-Clan book, here we get to see how they came to be a couple. Whilst you can read this as a stand alone, with it being a novella, I would recommend reading Andorra Sector first so that you fully understand the world and it's inhabitants. It's also a really fantastic omegaverse/shifter tale, just like this one.

Somebody really needed their behind kicking for not having explained to Daciana just how valued

This was about Elias and Daciana. Elias is Ander's second in command who you met from book 1 if you read it. Daciana came to their sector as part of a trade agreement. Elias' sector doesn't have omegas and Daciana was meant to come to see if she was compatible with their alphas. But Elias immediately realizes he wants her for himself.

Daciana is damaged from her childhood and does not think highly of alphas and is terrified of them. Her mother was brutally killed by them in her sector and she we

2.5 stars 🌟 This wasn’t bad. It just felt very instant, short and rushed. The female lead was very subdued. I prefer a stronger type of heroine. One resigned to her fate isn’t that enduring

The Experiment by Lexi C. Foss tells the story of Daciana and Elias. Daciana is part of a trade with the Andorra Sector Wolves, having come from a wolf clan where she is seen as weak and to be used, she isn’t used to someone like Elias who is an Alpha, dominant but also kind. He sees something in Daciana which she and others don’t see in her, sass, strength and beauty.

This was a fast paced and easy read novella which puts us right into the middle of the Andorra Sector and the goings on there. S

I'm loving this series so far and this book shows another side to the wolves: Elias the caring, passionate alpha. We get more glimpses into the world of the X-Clan wolves, with Daciana being offered up as an Omega to see if the clans can breed. Elias, instantly attracted to her, wants to protect her but as much as Daciana wants to trust him, she's scarred and scared. Elias must win her trust. What a wonderful story. ...more

X-Clan rocks❤️

I absolutely love this world that has been created❣️After reading Andorra Sector I was intrigued to find out exactly what had happened between Elias and Daciana and I’m thrilled with how it turned out😍 Can’t wait for more in this universe as it is spectacular😁

Thank you to Lexi for my advanced copy for which I voluntarily leave my honest review🤩

Elias is often surprised by his mate, "I blew out a breath and shook my head. “You weren’t kidding about being good with a bow.” Even with the high-tech one I’d fitted for her, she nailed every target." I liked this book, I loved Elias and I also loved seeing his bond with Ander. ...more

This bingeworthy novella is a fabulous addition to the X-Clan series by Lexi Foss. While it takes place during the same time frame as Andorra Sector, it can be read as a standalone. I really enjoyed getting to learn more about the mysterious Omega from the Ash Wolf clan that we first meet in Andorra Sector. Her and Elias are a fantastic pair for one another. While Andorra Sector was much more of a bully romance, X Clan: The Experiment is pure omegaverse romance bliss. This was a fast and easy re

Loved this book!!

Absolutely amazing and yet another gem from Lexi C. Foss. Elias is absolutely amazing. I love his alphaness but also that sweet and caring side he has for his mate. I love this new world and can’t wait to see more!

Okay, so I loved Andorra Sector, which this is set in the same world, universe and story setting. I love the wolves and the zombies aspect, although the zombies aren’t a massive feature. But what I absolutely loved about this story was the chemistry and believability of the characters.

Everything flows, like chemistry between Daciana and Elias was just fluidity personified. I believed they were destined mates even before their supposed match predetermined it. I enjoyed the chemistry between Elia

Damn, I love this series! It's so addictive and one of the best Omegaverse series I've read.

This novella runs parallel with first book, while Ander fights with his Omega, Elias is taken with Daciana, who's from another clan and their wolves are immune against zombies. So, they conduct an experiment of sort to see the comparability between two different wolves.

Elias was so patient and respectful of Daciana, knowing her past. It was exactly what she needed and rather to force her to submit to him,

Daciana is a pawn sent to Andorra sector to be tested and then is expected to mate with one of the X- Clan alphas. Being an omega she has to do this and there are scars from her past that have her shaken to her core . When Elias is around her she seems calmer there is something about the Alpha that calls to her in a way that sends her heart beating faster . He wants to fix her , adore her and take away her pain . But will they be compatible only the moon will tell and by then it could be too la ...more

I kind of wish I would've started this one with the first book.
But only because I think if would've been nice to understand a bit more about the world that this series is set in and understand what and who the infected are and why they X-clan has immunity while others don't.
Daciana is an Omega wolf. She's seen first hand how Alphas use those lower in ranking than themselves. She watched her mother get used and abused and eventually killed by a group of Alphas. So when she is signed up for an ex

This was a nice little extra to the overall story in the X-Clan universe. We have the full story behind Elias and Daciana which were mentioned in Andorra Sector. Oh Elias...I want to wrap you up and keep you forever - he was such a sweetie and was just perfect for Daciana after everything she went through.

My only issue with this story was that it was too short. Oh and the fact that the was no repercussions from the pilot or whoever it was that filled Daciana's head with lies on her trip to Andor

I liked that we get to see what happened between Elias and Daciana in this book. I really liked Elias in Ander and Kat's book and I was happy that he did find his mate but I really wanted to know more about their relationship since we didn't really get much about it besides that they mated and were happy. I really liked how much growth Daciana goes through during the course of this, she starts out as a scared omega who's kinda forced into a new place with the expectation that she's going to be m ...more

X-Clan: The Experiment
Return to the Andorra Sector in this follow-up novella to see just how Elias and Daciana’s story unfolded. The book’s events happen parallel to the events in Andorra Sector. While you don’t have to read Andorra Sector first but I would recommend it to help you understand the world and the story. I love how Daciana is portrayed. She may be a little bit broken due to her past experiences but there is still an intelligent fire about her that I loved and appreciated. Then there

Elias is the ultimate alpha. He’s understanding, caring, and everything you need when you need it...sometimes even when you don’t realize you need it, he’s exactly what Daciana needs to come out of her shell after everything she’s already been through in her life. Now, she’s experienced the ultimate betrayal...her Alpha dumped her on another clan because she had no family and no one to stand up for her. She knows no one and is terrified in this new place with so many Alpha wolves and so much tec ...more

If there is one thing I can say about any Lexi C Foss book is they ALWAYS help me escape reality for a bit. X-Clan: The Experiment is no different! I fell in love with these wolves of the Andorra Sector. They are rough around the edges but also very caring.

I'm so happy Elias got his story! He's so sweet, yea yea I know he can be a jerk but he was really sweet and patient with Daciana. Daciana has been through hell and doesn't understand how a true Sector should work with honorable Alphas. She s

A great book about 2 people who are as different as can be. Trust must be earned and learned for a relationship to become better then those that have been seen. See that love must be learned and returned by both Daciana and Elias the hope for their future and of the X-Clan. I loved this book it was romantic, caring, and the sex is hot too..

I havent read the first book in the series. I dont feel too lost because of it. Its very intriguing type of story and normally I dont go for the "hey lets break the female and maybe she'll be better for it" kind of stuff. I am just not a fan of mistreating women in that way. That being said I actually didnt hate it in this. Lexi has a gift and she did it justice in this story because I dug it. I really enjoyed both characters and by the end I was good with both of them...Elias oh heck ...more

Romance. So lacking in so many of today's books. I am a huge Omegaverse follower. Almost all Omegaverse stories I read receive 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟but this book would have received 10 if allowed. The Experiment was a great romantic story. A lot of books do not get me psyched but not only do Lexi's stories mostly have HEAs, she knows romance that leads to hot sex that follows. The characters in the X-Clan books are true to their roles as Alpha, Betas and Omegas. If you like shifters or not in your Omegave

I am loving this new world that Lexi has created,i had been looking forwards to reading Elias and Daciana story after reading the first X-Clan book,and I wasn't disappointed at all.
I love the bromance between Elias and Ander and you saw more of this in this novella,loved the chemistry between Elias and Daciana and was intrigued to see how this showed as they was destined to be mates.
Can't wait for more from Andorra Sector to find out what happens next in this X-Clan world and the stories to come

I read this in audio form. This sexy and exciting story almost lost me because Daciana was so very broken. Then Elias entered and was so warm and supportive that I gave it a chance and was thrilled I did. Watching Daciana come into her own was thrilling and watching big bad Elias fall for the little omega was totally heartwarming. Listening to the back and forth between characters helped make it more real. Totally enjoyed.

I loved this story. In a world of Alphas and their Omegas, Elias and Daciana’s story is not the norm. Two characters introduced in “Andorra Sector” I wanted to know more about, and here they are! It is a story of duty, of trust, and the search for something you never thought or realized you wanted. Overcoming one's past and the pursuit of and desire for a happily ever after.

I swear, if Lexi published her grocery lists, I would buy them and read them.

Lexi has a way with words that puts you right into the heart of her characters.

I cried, I laughed, I growled right alongside the characters.

I loved this glimse into the story of Elias and Daciana and I cant wait for more X-Clan stories.
