Dark Alpha’s Awakening by Donna Grant
A Reaper Novel #7
This book begins with the beginning...the beginning of Death or Erith or sometimes SHE...it tells of her past and how she came to be and why
the sword was hidden and then picked up again. From there we move to a dream Cael is having of how Death came to him and turned him into a Reaper. From there we move on to dealing with Bran...once a Reaper but definitely fallen from Grace. He must be thwarted and to do so Erith has to pick up her sword again. Cael and the other Reapers (now two teams of them) will be there at her side as she makes her move.
Cael and Erith have danced around one another for...well...almost forever. In this book the dancing pace picks up and moves on to and beyond seduction and...it was well worth waiting for. Cael and Erith SO belong together.
There are fights and captures and torture and pain and angst and drama and...LOVE...getting to see the other reapers and their women and hearing about the first birth of a Reaper child was so much fun! I am not sure where this series will go next and having NOT read all the other threads dealing with this marvelous world filled with dragons and warriors and kings and reapers and faeries and...probably other beings I am unaware of it made me wish I had started with book one of the series and not book one of the Reapers to really immerse and know everyone mentioned in this book. That said...this was a superb read and well worth waiting for!
Thank you to NetGalley and St. Martin’s Press-Swerve and InkslingerPR for the ARC – This is my honest review.
4-5 Stars

The seventh book in the Reaper series is an explosive thrilling read that readers don’t want to put down. Finally, the one that readers have been eagerly awaiting, Death and Cael’s romance is packed full of sizzling chemistry with a magnetic pull that defies gravity. The relationship is not an easy one that’s for sure and readers cannot possible imagine the heat and the passion that explodes from the pages when this couple finally give in to the attraction that they have denied for so long, in fact that passion singes readers with its intensity and the emotional depth of their relationship is one that captures readers hearts forever.
The fast paced and smooth flowing plot gets the adrenaline pumping right from the start and keeps readers biting their nails and holding their breath in expectation and anticipation of what will happen. The thrilling events and the suspense filled story keeps the excitement flowing throughout and there is never a dull moment to be found anywhere in this book. Not only is the Reapers going up against their enemy in a major way but they are joining forces with unexpected allies and things are happening that one would never have expected would happen which really makes the story more realistic as the group gear up for this huge battle that they know may just cost them their lives, a battle that is fantastically depicted by the way. Donna Grant always spins her tales in a way that ensnares readers and keeps them spectacularly entertained but Dark Alpha’s Awakening is so much more that there is just no way that readers can remain detached during the unfolding events that take place throughout this gripping, explosively thrilling and memorable story.
