It’s hard being a Princess.
Mackenzie Grey never felt as vulnerable as she does now—but that won’t stop her from getting what she wants: revenge. Kenz and her friends journey to a new land where everyone has a motive and everyone is a suspect. The Lunas find their voices after the massacre but question still stands—who is the real enemy? If Mackenzie wants to free herself, she will need to free them all; and it won’t be easy. As she approaches her 24th birthday—in the middle of a web of lies, deception, and murder—Kenz has to weave her way to the truth before she’s next on the chopping block.
With her companions, Mackenzie will make her final stand and change the course of the Lycan world forever…
Mac is back, the revolution failed, and a tribunal is to be held. Likely to her death, what’s a girl gotta do to be left alone? Everything’s coming together in ALPHA.
I really don’t want to give too many spoilers. The King of the Lycans and his family is straight outta game of Thrones and it works for me, the whole magical underground of creatures are also having issues within themselves, alliances are being made and broken left and right as Mackenzie is trying to keep her head on her shoulders.
I liked how everything came together, I’m curious if there will be a book four since there is the opportunity for more but if not, it was a nicely wrapped up ending I’d felt satisfied. I have really enjoyed the series, the characters have some serious growth, and the characters stay true to their nature. The POV from Scar was a bit odd, it was short and I didn’t really see how it added much. I would have loved a POV from Amy after all she had endured and would wanted to see her and Jackson’s aftermath, how that played out.
I appreciate the arc in exchange for an honest review, I am thrilled to have gotten the chance to read the book. I have been anxiously waiting for it since Caged.
