There is no escaping a Reaper. I am an elite assassin, part of a brotherhood that only answers to Death. And when Death says your time is up, I am coming for you...
My secret is an ancient one. I exist to exact vengeance on the Fae for their wrongs per Death's orders. When I’m sent as a spy to one of the most treacherous, deceitful places in any realm – the court of the Light Queen – things go awry. Neve captured my soul with just a look from her seductive gaze. She is who I want, who I crave…who I hunger for. But someone has set out to kill her – and expose me. I’ll destroy any man – human or Fae – who brings harm to her, for she is the light my soul can’t risk losing…
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
Whenever I start an arc from a beloved series I can’t help but think to myself, “what a lucky girl I am.” This is exactly how I felt when I started Dark Alpha’s Demand, and that feeling stayed with me throughout the book.
I wasn’t sure about Neve at first, seeing as she’s a light fae and a lot of them are self-absorbed prats. Thank goodness Neve was nothing like this. She was strong, exceedingly smart, and unbelievably loyal.
Talin was just as wonderful as I thought he would be. My heart just ached for him as he raged against the circumstances that would ultimately keep him from Neve but he still stayed loyal to his Reaper brothers and Death.
We aren’t given the story of how they met and how their relationship progressed other than the fact it was an instant connection. I think having the story of their relationship and Neve’s backstory with more of her family dynamics and her fight for at least some independence would have made for a much richer story.
Still, I ended up adoring Neve. She faced more than either heroine who preceded her in this series. As the story progressed, you knew that something drastic was going to happen and it was not going to be good. During one extremely heartbreaking scene that had my eyes misting up a bit, I just wanted to reach into the pages and hug her.
We finally get to truly meet Rhi and I loved her! Her attitude, snarkiness and the fact that she could be the poster child for badass women has me just dying to know more about her. I cannot freaking wait for her book.
As short as this was and even though I feel parts were missing, I had a great time reading this (except for when my heart broke, but really even then). Although we did get a few answers about Bran, lots more questions kept popping into my head. The most important one about what’s happening with a certain Reaper has me on the edge of my seat waiting impatiently for the next book. Write faster Ms. Grant!
