5/5 Review: Dark Alpha's Claim by Donna Grant


 
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 am coming for you...
 
My whole existence is based on taking what Death wants. Born to eliminate Fae guilty of unforgivable crimes, my reckless, wild nature makes me the perfect assassin to carry out Death's bidding. I've seen more sinister and violent dealings than anyone could ever imagine. But it was the sight of her face that stopped me cold. I've never wanted a woman-never mind a human-so badly; never felt my heart, hardened by death, burn brighter and hotter until it burst into flames. She is everything I desire. The kind of woman that compels you to stake your claim on her, to let the world know that she's yours. A Reaper saving her life will only attract danger, but I vow to protect her at all costs from the Fae that hunt her, and keep safe the woman who has claimed me, body and soul.

Baylon is a fae reaper in the human world trying to keep his identity a secret and complete the missions he's given, however his next mission is a bit hard for him to swallow. Especially when he falls head over heels for Jordyn Patterson. Jordan is a half fae who doesn't know what she is, but finds herself obsessed in knowing everything their is to know about the Fae, and she's about to get the surprise of her life! With her life now in danger,  she must decide if love is worth the ultimate risk. 
 
This is the first time I've read anything by Donna Grant and I really enjoyed her style of writing. The story flowed well and I loved the characters. The instant pull between Baylon and Jordyn is intriguing and you get pulled in learning about it along with them. 
 
The dangerous guessing game of who's the ultimate "bad guy" has you guessing along with the rest of the reapers and there are surprises at every turn. I'm definitely ready for the next book in this new series and think this was a great one to start! 
 
The only thing that confused me was the name of the book. Normally the term "Alpha" is used for werewolves and shifters, but that is not the case in this book. And I understand the term means an alpha male, but the title still threw me a bit. Other than that I loved the book and can't wait for the next one!
