From New York Times bestselling author Donna Grant comes another action-packed installment in her thrilling Reaper series, featuring a brotherhood of elite assassins who wage war on the Fae at Death's behest—and the women who dare to love them.

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…

I’ve been a part of so many different worlds I’m not sure who I am or where I fit in anymore. Honestly, with everything I’ve been through, being called across realms and encountering the beautiful Druid who instantly captures my attention—and my heart—shouldn’t have surprised me. But it did. Not as much as discovering how it feels to brush against her magic, however. Now, we must navigate these new waters and fight against our latest threat, hoping that our combined power and that of our allies is enough to defeat our foe. Because the Fae Others want to end the Reapers and take over the realm, and their leader is one of the most formidable enemies we’ve ever faced. The battle won’t be easy, but with this strong, resilient mortal by my side and some help from our friends, it’s a fight I’m more than willing to enter—as long as it means she’s by my side. Forever.

What a wondrous world this author has created. I fell into this story and it enthralled me. Balladyn and Rhona's story is a convoluted one. The reapers and Skye Druids have such magic and strength. Together they are up against evil. Get ready for a great read with this one.

I was totally hooked on this story because it was so different, it is dark, gritty, twisted, scary and painfully realistic in parts. It is definitely not a soft and fluffy romance. Look out when that finale hits you, you will be floored.

At long last, Balladyn gets his own story and a chance at love. Dark Alpha’s Command is a fast-paced novel that entails love, conflict, and an epic battle that’s reminiscent of the ones against Bran and against Usaeil. This novel brings together all of Donna Grant’s Dark World inhabitants: Reapers, Druids, the Fae, Dragon Kings, and the Warriors. But will all of them together be enough to defeat the powerful Lena, leader of the Fae Others?

Of note, there is still one Reaper who has yet to find love. We’ll have to wait until March 2023 to read that tale. Looking forward to reading Dark Alpha’s Fury, the novel that concludes the Reaper series.

Donna Grant has once again displayed her unique ability to create characters and situations that keep you eager for more. I enthusiastically and impatiently await each of her novels.

This series is 15 books deep, and the world it lives in has countless other books - and somehow, Donna Grant continues to keep me interested and wanting to read more. This book, in particular, is one I have been hoping for. Balladyn is a favorite character within the series - he's been good, bad, and just about everything in between. The other thing Donna Grant does so so well is redeem heroes. Although - I am not sure Balladyn needed much anymore! Rhona is the leader of the Skye Druids - she is relatively new in that role (considering the last leader held the position for a <i>very</i> long time. She's still questioning her role within the group. When she is attacked and Balladyn is drawn to find her in a way that shouldn't be possible - everything shifts.

Balladyn and Rhona are pretty special together. We already known most of their individual backstories from other books, but getting their perspective on what happened to them is fascinating. They are also really perfect for each other. I loved their deep connection and how neither really questioned it at any point. Even though their relationship goes from 0-60 in like seconds - it definitely worked in the context of this world and this story.

I loved this story and it definitely stood out among the recent books in the series. I'm looking forward to seeing more of the characters in the upcoming spinoff that focuses on the Skye Druids. Do you need to read the rest of the series to appreciate this one? Not really - but this probably isn't the place to start - there is just a lot of history to unpack.

I received this as an ARC via NetGalley, but these opinions are all my own.
