DARK ALPHA’S AWAKENING is the seventh book in the Reapers series. Grant has built a really fascinating world that I have enjoyed reading a lot, but this book kind of feels different than the other books in the series.
Firstly, it takes a while for the book to warm up because Grant kind of does a recap of the origin of the Reapers and really what they are all about. I’m sure this was meant to really create drama and make this story feel larger than life, but at the same time, I think it created some pacing issues. I find this especially true if you’re a loyal fan of the series because most of the first half is stuff that readers already know.
Grant writes this book to make it feel like the end. But if you know, Grant’s writing and her series style, then you also know what none of her series really truly end. They are all connected somehow so I really don’t see a true end coming from this one either.
All that being said, I think this book is a good book, but it’s not my favorite of the series. I kind of felt like this would have been a good beginning book in the series if that makes any sense, but it really does feel like the origin started here. Nevertheless, I do recommend this series and this book as a whole.

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!
