Publisher's Summary

Dark Alpha's Claim is the first in an exclusive new series from New York Times best-selling author Donna Grant!

There is no escaping a Reaper. I am an elite assassin, part of a brotherhood that answers only 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 who 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.

Nice start to series

Death has formed the Reapers to protect humanity from annihilation. She set rules on them to keep them constant to the Reaper cause. One rule is no love mates. Balan finds half fae Jordan and enlists her help in trying to defeat the dark fae. Balan and Jordan become lovers. Very good world and character development. This series ties into Grant's Dark Kings.

Great story

I actually was into this book from the first pages normally it takes a few chapters but this was such a good book I got right into it the only reason why I gave it 4 for overall score is because the author states in the book Death has a beautiful lilting voice but this annoying narrator made her sound like an Old Hag that kinda annoyed me when I was listening to this audible I recommend finding a new narrator who won't ruin the story. What I love about the heroine is she knows what she wants and goes for it I hate the annoying girls who are so unsure of themselves and won't jump on the hot hunk who likes them

This story claimed my attention

Wow...although this is a shorter read/listen it has all the elements needed to have me not wanting to hit pause. This is a fresh take on the classic of the fae. There was enough gripping action and heated scenes to keep wanting to hear more of the reaper's story and ready to download the next.

As to the narrator...I know there were some complaints...I don't agree. There were probably better choices, but the voices were not the worst and I found that it did not distract from the story (which a lot of Narrators can do and ruin the listen).

Disappointment

The story was mediocre, and the narrator was horrible. I struggled to finish this story, even though it is very short. Donna's Warrior series and her Dragon King series are so much better than this, and Antony Ferguson is a much better narrator.

Excellent as always

This one is yet another great story that is a stand alone, yet interwove well into the Dragon kings books. I would recommend that you read or listen to it following Darius story in the Dragon kings, as it immediately follows in story line.

I highly recommend these books by Donna Grant! The Dark Warriors, Dark Kings, and Reapers are all great series.

Goos start to a new Series

Have you listened to any of Victoria McGloven’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No this is the first book I have listened to narrated by Victoria McGloven.

Any additional comments?

This is a spin off from the Dark King Series by Donna Craig and as such I would have thought that Victoria would have listened to that series to ensure she was pronouncing the names that are duplicated between the 2 series the same as Anthony Ferguson did in his narration of that series. Whenever names I was familiar with from that series were pronounced in this book I found myself correcting Victoria in my head because she did not pronounce them the same as Anthony.

Great Story Again!!!

Love the story. I have read all Donna's books. I never get bored with the story line.
She a very inventive story teller. From thesis sentence to epiloge she weaves a wonderful tense and exciting love story.
