“Despite getting the main points across, I really do feel like parts of this book were underdeveloped.”
~ Under the Covers

The sixth book in the Reaper series by Donna Grant is called DARK ALPHA’S HUNGER. As a preface, I want to warn readers who may be new to this series that it’s really important to read the books in order. Although Grant provides some recap, there isn’t very much of it in this book.

With this book, the heroine, Thea, becomes the key to Eoghan’s solution. This book definitely had a different feel from the other books in the series and I’m not necessarily sure it was a good thing. Although Grant’s writing is very free-flowing and easy to read, I felt like it really lacked character this time. There were virtually no descriptions and very little details which seems a bit odd since most of her books that I’ve read usually have all this. To me, it almost felt like the author was rushing through this book, leaving out a lot of the key points that make this book feel full. Despite getting the main points across, I really do feel like parts of this book were underdeveloped.

However, I did end up liking the main characters of this book. Both Thea and Eoghan have interesting stories. But like I said, something does feel a bit lacking. The romance is there, but I felt like the sparks didn’t shine as brightly because things felt a bit rushed. As a result, this is a very fast read. I read it all in one sitting so I definitely felt like things moved a bit too swiftly. I’m hoping that Grant’s future books are less rushed and more detailed next time.

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!

The rushed feeling is always a bit disappointing. Hopefully the next is a bit more solid.
