This week Ava Mason released the last book in the Fated Alpha series about Elizabeth and her swoony dragons. I was so looking forward to this book. I have sped-read through all the books and loved them all. Elizabeth is a badass that really stepped up into her role as Alpha. She has spent 6 books struggling through the death of her father and mother, teaming up with her sexy dragons to fight through all sorts of problems, and is finally ready to go back to her pack to take her rightful place as Alpha. This final book wraps up what Elizabeth has been working towards for the last 6 books. Plus, there is a… drumroll please… super steamy scene between Elizabeth and two of the guys. Swoon. Let’s get into it.
We finished the last book with Elizabeth making her way back to her pack and finally defeating Garrett aka Scarface. This is one of the guys that murdered her father and took control of her pack. Thank god he is dead. He was a super douche and had been treating the pack horribly along with the help of the black wolf that also murdered Elizabeth’s father, Elias. Garrett was evil but overall, he was just a pawn for Elias who is really fucking evil. Elias seems to have some really weird powers to pair well with his obvious sadism. Awesome. But Elizabeth is ready to fuck shit up. She has come to take back her pack and she knows she can get out of this because she is the true alpha.
Elizabeth is absolutely broken hearted because her first love, Aaron, was murdered by his father Garrett. Also, James is missing. Until he isn’t. Because that fucker is helping Elias. WHAT. THE. FUCK. He is standing there looking smug as fuck while Elizabeth, Hunter, Christian, Easton, and Avery are on the ground naked and collared like dogs. Ugh. How on earth could James do this?! He is working with Elias?! That sadistic prick?! WHY!? Has he been brain-washed? Did he do this on his own accord? Is the Queen behind this?!?! All Elizabeth knows is that she is pissed, and they are all royally fucked. Elias has a whole army behind him. There is no escape, especially with the collars around their necks. The collars suppress their ability to shift as well as their magic. Greeeeeeaaaaaaaaaat.
Elias has Elizabeth, her men, and her old pack trapped. No escape. He has shoved Elizabeth and the guys in cages in this muddy prison with magicked fences. James, the douchebag, comes in and pulls Easton because obviously in the course of things going from bad to worse Hunter and Easton are going to have to fight. To the death. Of course. Elias and his group of sadistic men get off on forcing shifters to fight each other to the death. Swell guy I tell you. There literally seems to be no way out of this, they are cornered for the first time. No one to come in and save them. No way to magic their way out of this situation. It’s impossible and now they have been separated from Easton. How the hell are they going to get out of this?
Elias has some messed up powers that allows him to brainwash Elizabeth. So not only is everything fucked but Elizabeth becomes obsessed with Elias. She thinks he is god’s gift to earth and doesn’t remember why she loves her guys. She tries to convince her pack that Elias is doing this for the greater good and even helps imprison them. Nothing the guys do can snap her out of this. All she wants to do is please Elias and it is truly sickening. I don’t know how Elias can be such a horrible villain yet still have the ability to make me feel sorry for him. I felt myself wondering if I could be okay with him if he truly did love her. If he could fit in with her and the guys. My love for assholes is terrifying sometimes. I hope it is just a testament to Ava’s amazing writing skills that she could make me sort of like this horrible man while at the same time be completely disturbed by him.
This book gave me anxiety. Almost the entire time. I just wanted it to stop. I couldn’t deal with how horrible everything was and that there was no end in sight. James’s betrayal was also really hard. I just felt heartbroken for so long because I just wanted Elizabeth to catch a break. I wanted it to be like back at the cabin where they could all just spend time together and continue falling in love. Instead, I had to figure out if Ava Mason was going to kill off one of my beloved guys. I couldn’t see a way out of this mess. WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS TO ME AVA?!?!?!?!?!?!
Despite above, I really did love this book. It really tied up everything with Elizabeth and the guys nicely. Although I did miss a lot of the swoon, cuz I mean Ava Mason knows how to write some really awesome swoony moments, I did get some doses of swoon. Life can’t be all about swoon I guess. *sob* I felt satisfied with the end. But really, I need another book. I know I won’t get one. Unless I beg?! I mean no, probably not even then. I want all the moments of life after the fuckfest. I want to see more of the OMG moment at the end. I want to be a creepy observer of Elizabeth and ALL her guy’s life together. We don’t always get what we want. Do you know what we do get, though?! We get the ability to go back. Go back and re-read all the books again. Fall in love with Hunter, Easton, Christian, Avery, and maybe even James? These books are ones to read and re-read and re-read. Honestly, I’ll probably never stop reading them.
Thank you, Ava Mason, for letting us enter the world of wolf and dragon shifters. You gave us characters to root for, cry with, and especially to fall in love with. I can’t wait to jump into the next work of art you come out with ❤
Well… What are you waiting for you guys? It’s time to swoon with me ❤
