I loved some of the quotes in this book, the resonated so well and fit the situations perfectly. That was easily my favorite aspect of this read.
Alpha’s Revenge is book three in the Project Alpha series by N.J. Walters and was previously published as Sweet Charity.
Adrian is the leader of the Resistance in a post-apocalyptic dystopian era who are fighting against the corrupt government controlled by General Caruther and Piedmont Corporations. Created as a weapon and an ultimate soldier Adrian and those like him are known simply as the Alpha’s and they are all warrior and instinctual male.
“He was an Alpha, bred to be stronger, faster and smarter. But he was also a creature of instinct.”
Charity is General Caruther’s daughter who has grown up under her father’s thumb more than perhaps anyone else in this world who are suffer under his rule. When she comes across his latest victim, a member of the resistance, and finds out the general’s plans for those beyond the walls of the city who are fighting against the regime. With her newfound information she receives the courage she needs to take her life into her own hands and leaves the supposed safety of the city to find those fighting for a better life for the entire population and give them the information they need to bring down the corrupt government and her father.
I felt like the book was a little rushed. The principle was great and although I haven’t read the first two books in the series I could tell this was the culmination of the series. The speed with which everything happened though threw me. When the Charity and Adrian get together it’s so quick, literally right after they meet, and it just feels a little over the top fast. They also didn’t seem to have a real connection and the lack of trust showed quite a bit. I understand that for Adrian and how his genes basically make him zero in on the one woman meant for him and all that, but as Charity is just the average human despite being the evil general’s daughter I’m not really certain what her motives for jumping into bed with this unknown man so quickly are.
The ending felt extremely quick too. We don’t really get a good idea of how things fully turn out for the city and all the inhabitants long term. I’m not sure if the lack of that information is because there’s going to be another book, although it certainly didn’t seem set up for that, or if it was simply the author just being ‘done’ with the series too much to fully finish those wrap up thoughts or what, but I was a little miffed at the lack of complete closure.
I’m not sure if it’s in the other books, but I was a bit confused as to what happened to the world to create this crazy dystopian world the general is ruling. I felt like I was missing some key elements because I hadn’t read books one and two, but while I was not quite lost in this world I was definitely feeling a bit unsteady on my feet after having just been dropped into it with very little information.
Overall, I really enjoyed the book though. I think I’ll go back and check out books one and two now as well. The writing was great and I enjoyed the premise.
**I received an ARC of this book for my unbiased feedback and review.**
Meet Charity, The General’s daughter. A pawn to his evil doings and having suffered at his hands all of her. She in attempt to save one of The General’s victims, she learns of the plot to find and kill the Resistance and its leader. She escapes out of the inner city, finds the rebel leader, Adrian, and tells him what is about to go down. There is attraction and suspicions between each other. Is she a spy? Oh no, he’s an Alpha! Battle between good and evil ensue, each sacrifice themselves for each other, Resistance triumphs! HEAs all the way around.
Okay, I have to admit, she found him way too easy but I’ll buy into it on principle. There is once again boinking happening to fast for my taste, but this time around, we get to learn more of this world, and its people. We never really learn why the rest of the world was destroyed just the way it is now. We do learn more about Alphas and the evil that created them. There are a few items that never really get answered, but overall, it was a good series.
I received this book from the JeepDiva for the express purposes of an honest review. The opinions and rating of this review are solely mine.
Stars – 3.5, Flames - 4
“Real courage is being afraid and doing it anyway.”
Charity Caruthers always knew her father was evil. Her father is known as “The General.” Charity knew abuse at his hands growing up and was forced into an abusive marriage. Now widowed, she is often overlooked which gives her the opportunity to overhear things she shouldn’t. That’s how she learned of the prisoner being tortured for information about the resistance. When she went to see him, he told her to carry a message to Adrian that the General was coming in three days. How would she get outside the gate? How would she find this Adrian? But she had to try. Her father had to be stopped.
Adrian is the leader of the resistance and the third remaining Alpha. He envies both Tienan and Logan finding their mates. He had given up on the hope for himself until Charity was brought in claiming she had a message for him. One look and he knew she was the one, that she was his.
“He was an Alpha, bred to be stronger, faster and smarter. But he was also a creature of instinct. And every cell in his body was screaming that Charity belonged to him.”
Charity feels the same pull towards Adrian, a man she has never seen before. And it doesn’t take her long to figure out what he is. She’s heard of the Alphas. What will happen when he finds out who she really is, who her father is? The father that is the mortal enemy of the resistance.
“He should be her enemy. He was an Alpha. A killer. She should be terrified of him. Instead, she’d never felt safer in her life.”
I LOVE this series! This book was a perfect ending to the trilogy. We met Adrian before but didn’t truly know him. I loved his reaction to Charity. And I especially loved his way of making sure she was his. He decided to work on the physical connection first so that the emotional connection would come because of it. And boy did they connect!
There are many twists and turns. The General thinks he is orchestrating everything but he might be the one in for a surprise! The whole time, Adrian is convinced Charity could never love him because of what he is, and Charity thinks Adrian could never love her because of who she is. But that chemistry burns strong.
“The end of the game was at hand. Either he would defeat the General and bring down the Gate or he’d die. There was no going back.”
“The General had created a monster and now that monster had returned home to destroy his maker.”
This series is sexy as heck, suspenseful, and just plain awesome. I absolutely loved every single page of all three books. I hope you will too! N.J. Walters, you rock!
