Dark Alpha's Hunger by Donna Grant ~ Review

Dark Alpha's Hunger is the sixth paranormal romance novel in New York Times bestselling author Donna Grant's Reapers series featuring a brotherhood of elite assassins who wage war on the Fae at Death's behest--and the women who change their hearts.

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…
Where Death leads, I follow. Nothing will stop me from my duty – not even the darkness that claims me. It’s the music that leads me from the dark, returning me to my brethren and a new foe that has risen. Learning who hunts Thea could be the key to unraveling what we need to know to defeat our enemy. The Half-Fae’s music stirs a passion within me that I’ve never known. For her, I will break my vow of silence. For her…I will risk everything.

I have been hoping for Owen's book since the first one in this series.  Finally, this is the one.

Owen has always intrigued me because he doesn't speak.  He was one of the first reapers and one of the only ones to survive Bran's betrayal.  His history is hard and he doesn't speak of it.  He was lost when he saves another reaper.  Pushed into another realm, he has fought to get back to his brothers.  It is only Thea's music that can reach him.

There were some surprises in this book.  I never saw the changes to the reapers coming.  But it was exactly what Owen needed.  It's very enjoyable to be surprised.  The first few books in this series were far to predictable.  So this was great.

There are more characters introduced in this series.  We don't see the other reapers as much but we got to learn about the new ones.  I liked that.  It made me think that this series would continue.  And it is continuing.  That made me happy.  I guess I'm finally invested in this series.

As with all the books in this series, there is a lot of sexiness.  Thea is a good match for Owen and I was happy for them both.  

I was very pleased that this one was both unexpected and setting the stage for more books to come.  Finally, I'm excited for more to come.
