    Fantastic Series

    I read an ARC copy of Dark Alpha’s Hunger from NetGalley and St Martin’s Press in exchange for my honest opinion. Dark Alpha’s Hunger by Donna Grant is book six in the Reaper series. The Reapers are a unique group among the Fae. Both the Dark and the Light Fae make up the Reapers. They align primarily with Death and each other. Reapers are responsible for the execution of the Fae so deplorable they can no longer exist among their people. This story focuses on the Reaper Eoghan and the Half Fae Thea. When the couple finds each other, Thea discovers she belongs in a world of magic she never knew existed. One can read this book as a stand-alone, more so than the rest of the series. The storyline diverts a bit with this installment. It moves away from the main Reaper group and introduces multiple new characters. I always suggest in a setting such as the Dark World, that reading all previous installments take place. Hostilities in a realm that includes the Reapers and the Dragon Kings in the immediate, and going as far back as the Dark Sword series, are now in full swing. Several characters that share time here have deep-seated pasts. To omit confusion background information is given when relevant, but the full dramatic effect will not occur if that past is not familiar to the reader. As always, the characters are engaging. And who doesn’t enjoy a sexy Fae with an Irish brogue? Eoghan has the respect of his fellow companions due to his integrity. Thea overcomes a dark past to find happiness in a new world. The attraction between the two is fast and fierce. I am not typically in support of an insta-love scenario, but overlook it when the payoff is worth it. In the Dark World, the thematic developments deeply integrate into their world and are tremendously compelling. I like the buildup of various subplots, and again, sexy Fae. For those who are aware of the Dark World and its complexity. ** Beware of minor spoilers.** Usail, the Light Queen, has gone way beyond what I feel is redeemable. Or rather, any delusions regarding Usail’s true nature can no longer be contested after her actions and admissions in Dark Alpha’s Hunger. If one considered Usail’s words carefully, there is a slight hint about Rhi and her Dragon King. Perhaps one that gives it away. But, maybe not. This secret, as for many others readers, is one I am invariably trying to uncover. What I find best about these books is the world building. The Dark World is a fun and intriguing urban fantasy setting, everything interconnects. The males are dominant but possess decency and honor. The women rise above their fear and become better for it. The romantic interludes are always sensual. I plan for the release dates, so I don’t have to wait to experience them. My opinions may not match others, and I encourage everyone to find their own.

    New characters refreshingly breathe new life

    I read books from all three of Donna Grant's related series and it is always nice to be able to pick up any book from any of them and get the gist of what's going on. However, I would suggest reading all of them in release order as the intertwining plots are becoming more and more complicated. Dark Alpha's Night focuses on Eoghan, one of the original Reapers who has been trapped in another dimension for some time. Thea is a Halfling of unknown heritage whose melody from her violin is able to free Eoghan. The novel was the perfect length for me, about a four hour read. There was a great balance between the romance arc and the action/suspense of the novel. The introduction of the new Reapers is very exciting and I can't wait to read more about them, particularly Aisling, the sole female. There is an intriguing revelation regarding the heroine's origins which ties in to a major character. I'm sure that Thea will play an interesting role later. All in all, this was a good addition to the series and entire world that includes the Dragon Kings and the Warriors. I must admit that I was getting a little bored with them, but Dark Alpha's Hunger breathed new life in to overarching plot.

    one of my favorites in the series by far!

    This one is Eoghan’s book; one I have looked forward to since meeting the Reaper who refuses to speak for thousands of years and then sacrifices himself to save his friend Cael, causing him to be sucked into a hell realm.  He finally fights his way free and it is all because of a halfling. Thea is an orphan and ever since she was a little girl and visited some standing stones, she is drawn back to the portal stones and again and again throughout her adult years. They call to her, though she doesn't know why, and now she goes up to them and plays her violin just to get out of the city and have alone time.  It is her music that helps Eoghan find his way to the gateway where he fights to get free and she helps pull him out. He is drawn back to her again and again, and even though he tries to push her away, when she is kidnapped he will stop at nothing to find her.  Who wanted her kidnapped was a HUGE surprise and their love story was awesome and the plot was so good.  He is one of the more interesting and dynamic Reapers in the series and Donna Grant didn't disappoint with his story at all.  I am so happy with how this one turned out.  I think it is one of my all time favorite Reaper books.

    Sexy paranormal Irish romance

    I had heard of the Reaper series but I hadn’t gotten around to reading any of the books. So when the publisher approached me to review this series, I decided, why not. Even though it is the 6th book in the series, I figured I could follow the plot. Which I did, kinda. The author kept bringing up earlier characters and their relationships. At one point, I couldn’t keep everything straight in my head. Other than a few quibbles that I had with characters, I enjoyed reading Dark Alpha’s Hunger. I thought that Eoghan and Thea’s relationship started off odd and stayed a little odd. It was almost stalkerish since Eoghan decided to follow Thea around until he revealed himself. The only connection that he had with her was through her music. When she played her violin, he could find her. I thought it was a little creepy. Once they were together, they had great chemistry which bled over to fantastic sex. Speaking of the sex scenes, these were hot. The chemistry between Eoghan and Thea was off the charts. I had to fan myself a few times. If it could, my Kindle would have steamed up. I felt that Thea got the stick end of things during the book. First, she brings Eoghan back from the darkness. Then she is semi-stalked by him until he shows himself. Then her biological mother kidnaps her and lays a lot of crap on her. That girl needed a stiff drink and a hug by the end of the book. She had been put through the wringer. I did like that she was an accomplished violinist. I loved how music pulled her from a crippling depression at an early age and gave her purpose. Eoghan’s backstory killed me to read. No wonder he chose to take a vow of silence. I would have too if I had been put through what he went through. I didn’t get why Death told him to rescind his vow of silence until the end of the book. Then it hit me in an “AHA” moment. I liked his relationships with the other Reapers. There was an instant bond between them. The end of the book was interesting and laid a definite foundation for the next book.

    Intense!

    Just when I thought we were getting closer to the end, we get introduced to a bunch of new characters. I have to admit I have no idea where the author is going next, but more is good. I'm enjoying this series. It's unique and has very appealing characters. I also like how this gets intertwined with the Dragon Kings series. It's good to see Eoghan. I like him more now that his role has been expanded. I'm curious how much Thea is going to be able to do now that her identity has been revealed, but the one I'm really looking forward too is Erith. I'm guessing her story will be the last one in the series. I would recommend starting at book 1. There are too many characters to keep up with and an overall storyline that continues in each book. The great thing about this series is that each book is about the size of a larger novella and they sure do pack a punch.
