ABOUT: Tessa—part witch, part werewolf, raised human and now the unofficial leader of a newly minted supernatural alliance—thinks nothing of her brother, Axel, texting her and Dastien to meet him. The location pin was in a weird spot, but maybe he’d found a magical anomaly there. But when Tessa steps into the darkened warehouse, she doesn’t expect to see her brother laying in a pool of his own blood, smell the sulfuric scent of black magic, or feel the pain of her mate being shot full of silver.

Tessa has seconds to make a choice, but there’s only one thing she can do to save the two most important men in her life—sacrifice herself.

The last thing Dastien hears from Tessa was her plea—help Axel. But then their bond goes silent. He can’t hear her. He can’t feel her. And there’s no sign of the attackers who took her.

Dastien does everything he can to save Axel before calling his friends in a panic. It takes all of them to find Tessa, but when Dastien’s finally reunited with her, there’s no sign of recognition in her eyes.

No magic in her touch.

No wolf beneath the surface.

Everything that made Tessa who she was…has been erased.

 

My Review:
Alpha Erased is an entirely different beast than its predecessors. You will be completely absorbed in all that happens. I couldn’t (wouldn’t!) put this book down until it was over.

I knew this was going to be painfully bad for Dastien. All I wanted to do was give him hug. Alpha Erased takes the idea of “mates” to a whole new level it’s wild! In this book, really come to understand the depths of what it means to be “True Mates.” I believe this to be the book’s strongest aspect.

I care about Dastien a lot and even more so post-read. The majority of the book is really sad and tense and quiet until they find Tessa. And then things speed up towards a stunning conclusion.

I don’t know what to make of Alpha Erased as a whole. It is in no way a bad book; far far from it. When I finished the book I was like “woah, so that happened.” It’s an HFN story, of which tend to leave me in a dazed book hangover.

But I would still recommend this book and series because wolves and fantastic characters and the devious plots and feelings. Also, just look at that gorgeous cover! So blue and beautiful!
