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’m coming for you…
Serving Death and the Reapers has been my life for centuries. I’ve always put my duty before everything, even my yearning for Death. But now, she’s fading – our foe is bent on destroying her and he will stop at nothing until he does. Death holds the key to our survival. I will do everything in my power to stop her from disappearing. For her, I will ensure we have the best fighting chance. For her…I will cross the divide keeping us apart.
This is a full length Reaper novel.
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
Finally! I’ve been waiting for the Erith/Bran showdown for-freaking-ever and it did not disappoint. This was everything I wanted it to be with action galore, lots of feels, and some sweet sexy times.
Erith’s story held some surprises that I in no way expected. It was heartbreaking and answered so many questions I had and some I didn’t know I wanted answers to. Her character arc was amazing, and she ended up being someone with one hell of a redemption story.
As for Cael, I don’t think there has ever been a more loyal, steadfast, and heroic hero. He laid it all on the line not only for his Reapers, but for Erith as well. He checked all my boxes. I’d wondered how he’d be alpha enough to be paired with death herself and not get overshadowed, but goodness me, he proved he was.
This was an action heavy book, with lots of intrigue and a little heartbreak. The romantic aspects took a backseat to the war between the Reapers and Bran but this didn’t bother me at all.
I thoroughly enjoyed Dark Alpha’s Awakening. It was one of those books that had me so engrossed; I picked it up every chance I could, even if it was only for a few moments. This was definitely worth the wait, well, except for that cliffhangerish ending. One war down and one just beginning. I can’t freaking wait to read what comes next!
