Title: Dark Alpha's Demand
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 secret is an ancient one. I exist to exact vengeance on the Fae for their wrongs per Death's orders. When I’m sent as a spy to one of the most treacherous, deceitful places in any realm – the court of the Light Queen – things go awry. Neve captured my soul with just a look from her seductive gaze. She is who I want, who I crave…who I hunger for. But someone has set out to kill her – and expose me. I’ll destroy any man – human or Fae – who brings harm to her, for she is the light my soul can’t risk losing.

Erith also known as Death has sent Talin to spy on the Light court although I’m not exactly sure why. At the opening of Dark Alpha’s Demand Talin is already very well acquainted with Neve. They’ve been enjoying each other’s company as soon as he comes to court. As a Reaper and a spy he’s there often but most of the Light knows little to nothing of him. That’s simply the life of a Reaper, no one can know who he truly is. Death (not the woman) is swift for those who know of the Reapers.
The obvious thing for the Reaper’s to investigate is all of the turmoil and unrest within the Light court. Readers know from the Dark King books that Usaeil is more interested in fame and starlight than she is of her queenly duties. Someone is spreading rumors of Reapers around to anyone who will listen. The queenless court is all aflutter over it. When every member of the wealthy, prominent, and influential Light family goes missing and all finger point to the Reapers the gossipy Light does the only thing they know to do, they hide in fear of the ones they were taught to fear from childhood.
While I feel like I missed out on the meet and greet that that got Talin and Neve into seeing each other there is a plus side to that. I feel like a lot happened in this Reaper novella. That missing piece allowed for so many other directions for Donna to go with this installment in the series. The final climatic fight scene has me eager to get next book in my hands. I’m dying to know where part of that went. I’m of course excited to see who the next female will be and what she will bring to the growing Reaper crew. Bran is managing to stay just one tiny step ahead of the Reapers and there’s a reason for that. I’m looking forward to seeing how it all plays out.
