Publisher's Summary

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 secret is an ancient one. I exist to exact vengeance on the Fae for their wrongs, per Death's orders. When I'm sent as a spy to one of the most treacherous, deceitful places in any realm - the court of the Light Queen - things go awry. Neve captured my soul with just a look from her seductive gaze. She is who I want, who I crave...who I hunger for. But someone has set out to kill her - and expose me.
I'll destroy any man - human or Fae - who brings harm to her, for she is the light my soul can't risk losing...in Dark Alpha's Demand, the next Reapers audiobook from New York Times best-selling author Donna Grant.

Decent book but terrible narration..



OK, this is not one of my favorite Reaper books. Talin and Neve and the other Reapers are in the hall of the castle getting ready to go after Bran, who had kidnapped Neve’s brother and parents, when she suddenly tells the others that she needs to be alone with Talin and they disappear. They end up in one of the castles many rooms where they proceed to have sex. Really? Cael, Kyran, Fintan, and Eoghan wait there in the hall while the two go have sex? I don’t get that at all!

We did spend time with Rhi, and Erith the Devil, and that always exciting. I think Daire in falling for Rhi and I can’t see how that’s going to turn out. I mean, what about her Dragon King? It’s getting confusing. Also, Cael IS in love with Erith so I’m wondering where that’s going to go.

At 82% the battle with Bran has ended and, of course, he got away. And Erith is still wondering why her magic keeps dwindling and Bran’s keeps getting stronger. I’ll be glad when this deal with Bran is over. It’s becoming tedious and boring.

Other problems, serious problems! I’ve listened to several of the other Dragon Kings books and even though Antony Ferguson does lousy women’s voices at least the Kings sound like men. In the other Reaper books I simply read them so imagine my surprise when Roman and Con showed up near the end of this book, the ONLY one I’ve listened to, and the MEN sounded feminine. If you’re going to have the same characters in different series’ then why the heck would you have one narrated by a man and the other by a woman, a woman that can NOT do men’s voices? Totally ridiculous!

There was certainly explicit sex in this story and the F-bomb was used 4 times.

As to the narrator: There are 2 written reviews on Audible and neither one mentioned the narrator, which is kind of silly since AUDIBLE is supposed to be where you review the narration. So, let me do it for them: the narration sucked. Victoria McGloven does no laugh or whisper or anything else. So many times someone would whisper something, even in someone’s ear or a crowded ballroom where you don’t want others to here, and Ms. McGloven would just about yell whatever it was that was said. The newest Reaper book is out and Victoria McGloven narrates that one too. I’m still up in the air as to whether I’ll buy the Audible or not. But this book was read in April 2016 and the next one, Dark Alpha’s Lover, just came out today. Maybe Ms. McGloven has gotten better?
