Being Alpha by Aileen Erin
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Another installment in this universe and another too quickly read book! These books go by so very quickly, with the pacing making me think I just started reading. I could gobble up a dozen of these novels!
We join Tessa and Dastien, firmly in their honeymoon mode. Of course, the evil forces that ruin all things will not let them enjoy too much happiness and end up throwing them a curve ball. Thought the baddies were gone with Luciana? Think again! They are forced to get their allies back together and address the looming issue of the failing seven.
It was awesome to watch Tessa totally embrace her alpha-ness and leadership role (whether on purpose or just by nature). She and her band of misfits continues to grow and evolve in amazing ways. I absolutely cannot wait for the follow-ups for a bunch of these characters. The larger story, however, is a bit of a downer. The world is ending (again) and this time it’s from a super big bad demon dude. They’ve got to rally all their forces and work together (sometimes a bit difficult with all the old alphas).
There’s a little bit of something for everyone here. There’s romance (new and old), action (complete with life threatening consequences), and some fantasy (in the form of mythological species and, of course, the fae). Tessa somehow manages to get everyone on her team to execute a near-impossible feat. Where they go from here? I’m not sure, but I’m positive that there will be even more challenges in the future.
