Alpha Erased by Aileen Erin
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
WOAH - this book was not what I was expecting. It takes you on a very tough journey that goes in all sorts of different directions. Don't worry - we get to a good ending, but it is a HARD ride.
We join Tessa and Dastien. They are *exhausted*, as is to be expected when they've been dealing with non-stop attacks from supernaturals. With no end in sight, it seems that this will be her new life, and it's probably killing her. It's no way to live a life. The change comes in a pretty bad way, but there is a big change that Tessa must trigger. Her visions tell her there is only one chance (kind of like with the Avengers?), so she has to take it. This ends up with her disappearing, and Dastien and her friends determined to find her.
Things... don't go according to plan. That's a massive understatement, but at least nobody dies? There is a lot that has to happen to get to a good conclusion here, and we feel every single second of it. There's ups and downs, lots of magical mysterious stuff, a good return of a lot of characters we've met along the way, and ultimately a huge turning point. I wasn't sure I'd enjoy the second half of this book and was cringing the entire way leading up to it, but I should have trusted the author. We get a solid landing here and it was all worth it in the end.
