  • Don’t dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.

Today my book is Alpha by Rachel Vincent. This is the long-awaited conclusion to the series that began with Pride. Here is the product description from Amazon in Faythe's own words: 

The unscrupulous new Council chair has charged Jace, Marc and me with trespassing, kidnapping, murder and treason. Yeah, we've been busy. But now it's time to take justice into our own hands. We must avenge my brother's death and carve out the rot at the heart of the Council.

It's not going to be easy, and loss seems unavoidable, but I have promised to protect my Pride, no matter what. With a target on my back and Marc at my side, I'm heading for a final showdown that can—that will—change everything forever. A showdown I'm not sure I'm ready for.

But life never waits until you're ready.

"Are you sure about this?" Jace hesitated, one hand gripping a bare branch overhead, the other poised over his zipper.
Intriguing and tantalizing! And they aren't getting ready to do what you might think.

Page 56, Sentence 5:
"But I wanted you to hear it from me. I'm sorry I didn't tell you earlier. We didn't want to give you one more thing to worry about."
So far, this book is really good and well worth dropping everything else I should be doing and choosing it to read immediately.
