Book CoverVeena’s review of Dark Alpha’s Night (The Reapers, Book 6) by Donna Grant
Fantasy Romance published by St. Martin’s Paperbacks 06 Mar 18

The Reapers are Death’s hit squad created to keep the Fae in check. They answer only to Death and have forsaken all, including love, in order to become a reaper. Bran was once a reaper who broke the rules and paid for his disobedience with exile.

Bran has escaped and is now seeking vengeance against the reapers. The reapers themselves have changed, many of them have fallen in love, and to the teeth-gnashing dismay of Bran and his cohorts, Death has admitted the women into the folds, even as she is losing her powers and weakening day by day. The world is a dire place indeed and the reapers look like they may be on the losing end of the tide.

Three sisters in Ireland come to the attention of the reapers as possible targets for Bran and potential allies for the reapers in their fight. Daire arrives to find Bran already ahead of him and wooing one of the sisters. The sisters are not only aware of the existence of the Fae, but they have drilled every single day of their life for a battle they will one day be compelled to fight.

This is a pivotal book in the series that finally reveals a lot of Bran’s secrets to the readers. In an interesting twist, Bran and Daire are in a fight that could win Bran the war should he be the victor. The future of humankind is at stake, along with Daire’s heart. Will he persevere? Can he shut down Bran and finally get ahead of the plotting and machinations that have continued to defeat the reapers?

I believe this may actually be my favorite book in the series. Ettie is an excellent protagonist who will leave a lasting impression on readers. I can’t wait to see where this story will go next, especially given the cliff hanger with Death.

Grade: A

The Half-Fae is our one chance. She’s sharp and strong and fierce. She steals my breath every time I’m near her. And looking into her eyes is like a bolt of lightning right through me.
