Yet again I am jumping into a series that is already and progress. Some portions were no problem for me, others I was somewhat lost. I’m not normally a fan of Fae stories but Dark Alpha’s Lover blurb was interesting enough that I thought I would give it a try. Plus, I have a few friends who read author Donna Grant and have suggested I give her a try. So I gave this new to me author a try.
Fintan and Catriona story was easy peasy for me to follow. Cat’s siblings who had magic, were murdered, her parents also dead. She’s half-fae with no magic and has lost all her family except her grandfather. She’s lost so much and instead of poor me, she is standing tall and facing what gets thrown her way head on. Fintan is an elite assassin, a reaper that works for Death. He’s been burned in the past and now is an emotional popsicle. When he hears of a Halfling that draws the attention of other Fae he’s curious. What is it that draws other Faes to her? How is she still alive when other Halflings were murdered? His curiosity draws him to her but when she doesn’t reject him, that popsicle begins to melt. Most everything between them I had no problem keeping up with.
The parts I semi-struggled with is the whole Bran thing, Eoghan missing and the other Reapers finding love. The majority is explained to an extent throughout the book so I was able to piece most of it together. I’m still fuzzy/hazy about the other Reapers finding love. Obviously, had I read the previous books I would more than likely not be so confused…especially when it comes to Bran’s lost love. As for the missing Eoghan, I kept WAITING for someone to figure out the solution to that problem, especially once the secret regarding Cat is revealed. Did no one see it besides me?!
As my first book by Donna Grant, Dark Alpha’s Lover was a great read. I enjoyed it so much that I read it in one sitting, until 2am! The ending did feel a smidge rushed, but overall, I enjoyed the book. My curiosity has been piqued and now I want to start the Reaper series from the beginning. I look forward to reading the next in the series.
