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…

To some Fae, I am their worst nightmare. For I do Death’s bidding. But for all our strength and skill, a powerful enemy has risen up. Finding Ettie could change everything. The Half-Fae is our one chance. She’s sharp and strong and fierce. She steals my breath every time I’m near her. And looking into her eyes is like a bolt of lightning right through me. She’s what I’ve been waiting for my long, dark existence. But for us to be together, we must first stay alive…

Title:  Dark Alpha’s Night
Series:  Reaper #5
Author:  Donna Grant
Genre:  Paranormal Romance
Published:  March 6, 2018
Publisher:  St. Martin’s Press
My Rating:  4 stars

Dark Alpha’s Night is intense, steamy and completely addicting.  I’ll be very frank and say that I did not do my proper homework when requesting this title – I thought I had read earlier books in this series, the fact is I have not.  So.  I very strongly believe this is a series that needs to be read in order.  There are events, previous couples and side issues that I wish I had firsthand knowledge of before reading this story.  Did it prevent me from enjoying  Ettie and Daire’s story?  Not one little bit.  I simply wish I had started from the beginning is all.  I could follow the story in front of me quite well, it simply is my preference to read in order so that I don’t miss nuances and details that obviously cannot completely be retold in every story.  In fact, I will be going back to the start of this series, so in some ways reading this one out of order only gave me a new series to pick up.

I enjoyed my time in this complicated world.  Enough so that I need to know more.  The characters are strong, at times funny, always powerful and likable (except the bad guys, of course).  It’s possible to read this book on its own, I know I felt I was missing puzzle pieces, but that was my style of reading.  Donna Grant is a voice to be reckoned with as she takes you completely into her worlds – and there are worlds, some that lightly connect.  I believe some readers will enjoy this one and then walk away – others, like myself, will want to know more and find themselves picking up a new series to devour.  Either way, you’re going to find a good solid story, characters to either love or loathe and pieces of a puzzling mystery that is far from solved.

*I received an e-ARC of this novel from the publisher via NetGalley. That does not change what I think of this story. It is my choice to leave a review giving my personal opinion about this book.*
