“This complex storyline is why I continue to return to Grant’s books again and again.”
~ Under the Covers

DARK ALPHA’S NIGHT is book five in the Reapers series. Although this is a fairly newer series by Donna Grant, the worldbuilding is vast and complex. I wouldn’t suggest reading this series out of order. There’s too much backstory and worldbuilding for any newcomer to just walk in and enjoy. However, this complex storyline is why I continue to return to Grant’s books again and again.

That being said, I do generally enjoy the hero and heroines that Grant comes up with. They are always such steady characters with a whole lot of heart. Although there are their personal obstacles, it doesn’t stand in the way of the politics of the world. So I do think that Grant does a good job of balancing both the external and internal conflicts.

There’s quite a lot of reference to the Dark Kings series so if you haven’t read that series, you’re basically shit out of luck. I think it will be very confusing if you don’t read both series and I think that’s the double-edged sword of this series. Since I read both series, it’s a wonderful experience because the plot becomes so rich. However, if you’re just dabbling in this world, you will definitely miss out on all the details of the plot. So I very strongly urge that you read both series.

The only negative thing about this book I will say is that the beginning does that a bit to warm up. It’s much slower than her previous books so I’m hoping that the pacing gets better for the future books.

About Donna Grant

Donna Grant is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of the sizzling Dark King series featuring dragons, immortal Highlanders, and the Fae. She was born and raised in Texas but loves to travel. Her adventures have taken her throughout the United States as well as to Jamaica, Mexico, and Scotland. Growing up on the Texas/Louisiana border, Donna’s Cajun side of the family taught her the “spicy” side of life while her Texas roots gave her two-steppin’ and bareback riding. Despite deadlines and voracious reading, Donna still manages to keep up with her two children, four cats, and one long haired Chihuahua.

Blogger/Reviewer at Under the Covers Book Blog
I’m an obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I write New Adult Dystopian and Contemporary Romance under the pen name Ana Jolene (http://www.anajolene.com). I also work as a virtual assistant for authors. You also can find me as a reviewer and columnist for FreshFiction.com.

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.

When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!

It annoys me when authors do that. I almost feel pressured to read the previous series so I usually juat avoid them. This is not always good for me becuase I may miss out on a good series. Ah well.
