Book Description:

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… 

My duty to Death drives me forward. I've never once strayed from my path – not even when the future seemed uncertain. However, Maeve's intelligence, cunning and determination challenges me in ways I never imagined. Finding out what she knows is the key to learning how to conquer our enemy. The Dark Fae breathes new life into me unlike anything I've ever know. For Maeve, I will risk trusting the Dark. For her...I will battle darkness itself.

My Review:

I just can't not love these books, even when they keep me in complete and utter suspense for ages over a certain relationship, haha.  Dark Alpha's Redemption, just like all the other books in the Reaper's series picks up right where the previous book leaves off.  With that in mind it is really important that you read these books from the first one to the most current, otherwise you would be quite lost.  I think it is also important to note right from the get go that it would not hurt at all to start with the Dark Kings series before diving into this one as they are quite interconnected.  Honestly, Donna has been building this world since Dark Sword so if you really want to have the full effect, going all the way back to the beginning would not be remiss, though it isn't wholly necessary. 

Usaeil is up to her old tricks, thinking that she runs the world and taking what doesn't belong to her.  This time two friends of the Reapers and Death, and they want them back.  The war is finally beginning to really heat up and this book is the perfect set-up for everything to come in the future. For those that have been reading this series from the beginning we all know that there is one person in this world that deserves to take Usaeil on and end her scheming and tyranny, but time is running out and nerves on all sides are beginning to become frayed.  One thing that I loved about this book was the repeated question about why the Reapers don't just take care of Usaeil, because I think for us readers it is the same question we keep asking over and over even though we know the answer.  I think Donna having others asking this of the Reapers is a way for her to say 'I hear you and it's coming, be patient because I have a plan!'

I also throughly enjoyed the banter and relationship between Bradach and Maeve.  Seeing Bradach and Maeve in her own way, have to overcome his prejudices against the Dark/Light and to realize that it's not all 'black and white' was a wonderful aspect of this story and a reminder that there are no easy answers, sometimes one just has to follow their heart!  I loved both of these characters, especially Maeve, she was just plan kick butt awesome!  I loved how she clearly could take care of herself, wasn't afraid to do what needed to be done, but also has one of the biggest hearts out of any of the characters in this series in my opinion.  She truly just wants what is right for everyone, regardless of where they came from.  Bradach was just a great character to for his development, I felt like he was a bit overshadowed by Maeve and the on-going fight, but he still makes an impact for learning to open his mind and heart through his journey. 

We still don't know, or in my opinion, can even guess, how this is all going to end and while I do think we've moved a little closer to that conclusion, I don't know that we are anywhere near the end and that has it's ups and downs.  I love that suspense and I love getting more books each time, but we have been on this journey for a really long time now and while I really don't want it to end because that would mean we were done, I also just want to know all the answers to my many questions, ha. 

If you have been reading the series for a while, you definitely want to get this one in, just to see what's up with Usaeil, but don't expect any real answers to what's coming.  We moved one small step forward with this book but we did get a lovely new character out of it and a nice little romance!  If you are new to the series, stop!  Don't start here, go back to book one so you get all the details, this is a long journey but I know one that will be worth it in the end!
