#BookReview – “Her Forbidden Alpha” by Tabitha Conall


Blurb

Can fated love triumph over the threat of war?

Aislinn Cavett lives a sheltered life, raised in a human supremacist compound and kept separate from the wild variety of non-humans teeming outside the compound’s fence. 

North American Pack Alpha Darius Bishop believes peace with the Humans First group is the only way to protect his wolves from ongoing, senseless violence. 

When Darius arrives at the Humans First compound for peace negotiations, he finds something he didn’t expect—his mate. Fate couldn’t have chosen a more inconvenient mate for him in the General’s daughter, but Darius doesn’t care. Aislinn is perfect. 

War could be the result of their mating. When her father advances and his own wolves turn against him, Darius has to make an impossible choice—his love and his sanity, or the lives of his pack.

Review

In the second book of the Colliding Worlds series, North American Pack Alpha Darius Bishop wants to negotiate peace between the wolves and the militant Humans First organization. He arranges for peace talks even though members of his council thinks the gesture is futile. To his surprise, he finds his mate among his enemies and has no recourse but to kidnap her.
Aislinn Cavett wants peace with the wolves. Her father, the leader and general of the Humans First group, wants to destroy the wolves by any means necessary, and Aislinn has learned long ago to not go against her father’s wishes. After the peace talk goes awry, one of the wolves kidnap her, but she’s not afraid. For the first time in her life, she’s finally free from her controlling family and from their bigoted hatred, but she knows she must return to them to prevent all-out war.
Darius and Aislinn are amazing and well rounded characters. They have instant chemistry, but the odds are stacked against them. Darius knows what he wants but that differs from what he needs to do. He’s a strong, capable, self-sacrificing hero. He’s a true leader, and I absolutely adored him! Aislinn is just as smart and stubborn, and Darius’s perfect match.
I love the world building. There are different Earth dimensions that are overlapping each other, which means humans and a variety of supernatural creatures are living together on one planet. Each species knows about the other, which causes rife and mistrust, but there are many that want unity and friendship among the different species. I really like the fact that the wolves, humans, and other supernatural creatures hold TV press conferences like they’re political officials, and that public opinion weighs a lot on how each species acts toward one another.
The story is tight and well written, but there are a few minor quotation mark typos in my pdf copy. I really enjoy the author’s writing style, and I look forward to reading more books in this series.
5 Stars
