Review: Dark Alpha’s Claim (Reaper #1) by Donna Grant

Dark Alpha's Claim is the first in an exclusive new series from New York Times bestselling author Donna Grant!

There is no escaping a Reaper. I am an elite assassin, part of a brotherhood that only answers to Death. And when Death says your time is up, I am coming for you...

My whole existence is based on taking what Death wants. Born to eliminate Fae guilty of unforgivable crimes, my reckless, wild nature makes me the perfect assassin to carry out Death's bidding. I've seen more sinister and violent dealings than anyone could ever imagine. But it was the sight of her face that stopped me cold. I've never wanted a woman-never mind a human-so badly; never felt my heart, hardened by death, burn brighter and hotter until it burst into flames. She is everything I desire. The kind of woman that compels you to stake your claim on her, to let the world know that she's yours. A Reaper saving her life will only attract danger, but I vow to protect her at all costs from the Fae that hunt her, and keep safe the woman who has claimed me, body and soul.

Donna Grant has a new series that is thus far loosely tied into her magical Scotland books that we all love so much. The Reapers have been mentioned in her most recent Dark Kings book Passion Ignites. Her Reapers are watching both the Dragons and Warriors, but at this time they are not interacting or working together.

The Reapers consist of both Light and Dark Fae. These seven men have been recruited by Death to be judge, jury, and executioner of the Fae. They exist only to their small group. They are myth, legends, and tales told to the Fae to keep them in line. No one should know of their existence until it is time for them to mete out their brand of justice. Their orders come directly from Death.

Readers enter this new world as Cael (the Reaper leader) is giving the newest assignment to his men. In an unprecedented event every man questions Death’s wishes. Never one to question Death all the men embark on this assignment yet they can’t seem to follow through. While none of them follow through Baylon does the extreme opposite and actually defies one of Death’s rules, repeatedly.

Since Dark Alpha’s Claim is a new book in a new series readers are introduced to a group of new characters that live by a whole new set of rules. This is done is in 163 pages. It was a lot to take in especially with a couple meeting and falling in love along with a big battle scene. For all that happened I truly needed more page time. I enjoyed the world. I know deep in my heart I will enjoy the next books in this series more. I have a good feel of the characters and the world so maybe that will allow more for the couple and their romance with the next story.

Based on the blurb I was under the impression this series would be first person point of view from the hero. It is in fact third person from both Jordyn and Baylon.
