Review: Alpha – Rachel Vincent

The unscrupulous new Council chair has charged Jace, Marc and me with trespassing, kidnapping, murder and treason. Yeah, we’ve been busy. But now it’s time to take justice into our own hands. We must avenge my brother’s death and carve out the rot at the heart of the Council. It’s not going to be easy, and loss seems unavoidable, but I have promised to protect my Pride, no matter what. With a target on my back and Marc at my side, I’m heading for a final showdown that canโ€”that willโ€”change everything forever. A showdown I’m not sure I’m ready for. But life never waits until you’re ready.

Time for a short review ๐Ÿ™‚

1.) Reasons you chose this book

I have read all the previous ones and of course I had to read this last book since I like this series. And I had to know what happens to all of them.

2.) Reasons you liked or disliked this book

It was a good book, some ass-kicking, sexual tension between Faythe, Jace, and Mark, the birds showed up again. Faythe learns about responsibility and there are some major conflicts.
What I did not like was that the end felt rather abrupt. Everything was suddenly wrapped up, and for me it did not feel like I got any closure. Especially not about her personal life and that was something I wasn’t happy about. And I was not happy about…arghh, I can’t tell you, but I was not happy ๐Ÿ˜ฆ
3.) Reasons you are recommending this book
I still recommend this series because it is awesome! Just the kind of UF I like. And I am very sad to see it end.

    MaryIt was just so fast, and I felt like there were still loose ends.MishaI have noticed that many felt the same way. But anyway, please do read book 1 :DNaidaI just wanted more, but then I always want more :O)ChrisI had just begun to wish for something else and then…poff

  2. Aurian says:

    Perhaps those loose ends are the start of a spin off series? A new lead character? I haven't read this series but have been meaning too as it is somewhere in my TBR Mountain

    PattiMy thoughts exactly, just something more! It was all so..sudden and not final since things could still happenCarrieIt's perfect for short ones :)AurianI heard she is writing something new but nothing to do with these peeps… I thinkYvonneI am sure you will enjoy them

    I understand since its the end of the series so of course you'd want a satisfying end. This is another series that I do want to read someday if only I had more time.

    Now this was a fun way to review a book. Three reasons…it's a good way to be straight and to the point with a book. I might need to place this series on my TBR list…it's nice to see a series that actually has an end in sight since most of the other series on my TBR list are still being written.

  6. Blodeuedd says:

    JennyI hope you try it once day cos I do like the series, even if I wanted more from the end.MelissaIt was everything at once and I felt like ok so it ends, but peeps can change their minds tomorrowStaciI wish!..oh how I wish that

  7. Blodeuedd says:
