“This complex storyline is why I continue to return to Grant’s books again and again.”
~ Under the Covers

DARK ALPHA’S NIGHT is book five in the Reapers series. Although this is a fairly newer series by Donna Grant, the worldbuilding is vast and complex. I wouldn’t suggest reading this series out of order. There’s too much backstory and worldbuilding for any newcomer to just walk in and enjoy. However, this complex storyline is why I continue to return to Grant’s books again and again.

That being said, I do generally enjoy the hero and heroines that Grant comes up with. They are always such steady characters with a whole lot of heart. Although there are their personal obstacles, it doesn’t stand in the way of the politics of the world. So I do think that Grant does a good job of balancing both the external and internal conflicts.

There’s quite a lot of reference to the Dark Kings series so if you haven’t read that series, you’re basically shit out of luck. I think it will be very confusing if you don’t read both series and I think that’s the double-edged sword of this series. Since I read both series, it’s a wonderful experience because the plot becomes so rich. However, if you’re just dabbling in this world, you will definitely miss out on all the details of the plot. So I very strongly urge that you read both series.

The only negative thing about this book I will say is that the beginning does that a bit to warm up. It’s much slower than her previous books so I’m hoping that the pacing gets better for the future books.

  1. It annoys me when authors do that. I almost feel pressured to read the previous series so I usually juat avoid them. This is not always good for me becuase I may miss out on a good series. Ah well.
