Review for Dark Alpha's Night by Donna Grant - 3 out of 5
SYNOPSIS - AMAZON LINK -
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…
MY REVIEW -
I liked the premise, and the romance is sweet. There's light and dark Fae, and I love the idea of Reapers and Death as a person. The story didn't have the depth it could've though, and that affected the emotional impact of the story. This is the first book I read in this series and by Donna Grant, so that may have something to do with the emotion not gripping me. The story is still entertaining though, and I'd like to check out more in this series and to see where the series ends up. There's a larger story that goes throughout the series, but there is still an individual story for the main couple of this book. Daire is a reaper, and he's part of a reaper group that is trying to stop an evil "ex"-reaper from stealing Death's life. Death is a female, which is great! The bad guy is somehow stealing Death's power, so Daire and the others need to stop him before she's killed. They decide they need to find some half Fae descendants of the evil guy. Ettie and her sisters enter the picture. Ettie has been training for a battle that she's pretty much in the dark about. Ettie's okay, but she has some self-esteem issues. I didn't like the scenario of Ettie feeling inferior to her sisters. I didn't really like the sisters. I liked Daire. He's tough and has a soft heart. Ettie and Daire are sweet together, and they have good chemistry. There is a little bit of action, which I enjoyed. I loved the magical aspects, and it'll be interesting to see where the story goes.
