Oh my, time is flying by!! Yesterday was the release date for the latest addition to the Alpha Girl series and I totally forgot to post my review!!
While this series is somewhat outside my normal reading fare, I’ve really enjoyed the journey. Erin writes likable characters and engaging scenarios, and I completely blew through this book as fast as I could. I’m not sure how well this one would have read without the background of the rest of the series – there are a lot of characters to track and various types of creatures (like fey and werewolves and all that other great paranormal stuff) interact in specific ways in Erin’s world, so I do recommend starting at the beginning and going from there. (You can read my reviews of the rest of the series here.)
In this story, Tessa is kidnapped, so we spend a lot of the story reading Dastien’s perspective. I was super stoked to get inside his head for a little bit, because I’m pretty fond of Dastien. I could have used a smidge less time of him flipping out about Tessa’s disappearance (he’s easily triggered, geez) as that got a bit repetitive, but overall this book just made me like Dastien more than ever.
This book’s strength is also its weakness in a way – it’s heavy on action. That’s great for keeping the pages turning and keeping me wondering what was going on next, but now awesome for building relationships. I get that Dastien and Tessa are forever bound to each other etc. but it would have been lovely to see a little more time of Dastien wooing Tessa back after she was kidnapped.
But if you enjoy paranormal adventures, I definitely recommend this series. It’s great fun and I can’t wait to see which direction Erin heads next!
NB: I received this book as an ARC, which does not impact my review.
