Summary (via Goodreads):
Life has been crazy since Tessa McCaide moved to Texas. She’s gone from being a normal-ish girl with visions to a super-powered werewolf. She’s fought off vampires and broken a nearly unbreakable curse. And she’s got a hot mate, Dastien Laurent, to keep her busy.

Things are looking up until the full moon ceremony rolls around. Before Tessa can strengthen her bond with Dastien, the local coven crashes the gates, demanding that Tessa—their heir apparent—be returned. If the pack wants to avoid a war with the witches, handing Tessa over is the only option.

Tessa doesn’t want to cause an all-out fight, but joining a dark-magic coven isn’t on her to-do list, especially if embracing her magic side means parting with Dastien. When the coven leader tries to control Tessa with dark-magic, Tessa realizes she has to dismantle the coven or prepare the pack for war. Either choice will change her life—and her world—forever.


My Review:
Alpha Divided centers on the other major issue left unresolved in book two: Tessa shifting and the tribunal against her and Dastian. In book 3, we start to get into the heart of things. Tessa discovers more of herself and that she can’t avoid fate forever. She also contemplates whether she is were, bruja, human, or all three.

We also get to see new characters from the local coven; some I liked, some I didn’t. Our antagonist is truly a well-crafted being of evil. Judging by the state of all characters by the end, things are bound to get worse before they get better. Tessa’s world becomes a harsh reality. The sacrifices made really do wrench the heart strings. But I admire what Tessa tries to do for others despite how much it will hurt her. By the end of the story, I was left with a jumble of emotions.
