Dark Alpha's Embrace is the stunning second book the Reaper Series. I’d just like to say that Donna Grant is doing a spectacular job on this new series.
The story opens at an uncertain time for the Reapers. Bran and his Dark are kind of kicking their arses but there's some hope to be found in some ancient books that are fiercely guarded by the local librarian. Here is where River comes into the picture when Kyran and Talin break into the library to steal her books. River is one of the half-Fae, but the difference between her and Jordyn being that she knows about her lineage and she's not afraid to stand up to the two Reapers. She ends up earning their respect and having a moment with Kyran. Of course, she has special gifts that the Reapers need and they will have to protect her now that Bran has discovered her secret. There was a mystery to be solved and a few big secrets and a connection between Kyran and River to explore.
I really loved Kyran's book. He is one of the Dark Reapers and there was some curiosity about him. I liked the immediate connection between Kyran and River and how great she fit in with the growing Reaper family. They respected her and I loved the way she earned that respect. River had a lot of spunk and a wicked sense of humor. I really loved seeing Kyran go so protective of her and how easily she trusted him considering everything they had to overcome. Best of all was the special twist for them and how big bad Bran is going to have a major melt down when he discovers that one. In my mind I believe that Death is try to make up for some big mistakes because she knows she has her own kind of weakness. It's becoming clearer that she and Cael have a destiny together but how long will it take.
As expected, this series grew even more exciting with this latest book. I absolutely loved the main couple and how strong their faith was in each other. I enjoyed the twists and never knowing what to expect. A lot of things changed in this one, while some remain the same, such as the suspense that was amazing and the sizzling romance. I can't wait for the next book in this series.
