Alpha Night is book four in the Psy-Changeling Trinity and book nineteen in the Psy-Changeling series by Nalini Singh and narrated by Angela Dawe.

We return to Russia where we get to visit the BlackEdge Wolf Pack. This is the pack that neighbors the StoneWater Bear Pack. I like that we got to meet the wolf pack and return to Russia.

This time around we get Selenka Durev, the Alpha of BlackEdge and an Arrow Ethan Night. Our couple have an instant mating and we’ve not had this in the series before. I wasn’t as smitten with Selenka and Ethans romance because of this instant mating. I really missed the courtship, play, and fun that we have seen in previous Changing/Psy pairings. The other issue I had is that they don’t know each other and in less then 24hrs they are having sex. It just didn’t have the connection that I’ve come to feel and love with other couples.

The action, adventure, and world-building are captivating. I enjoy how Singh weaves this series and adds new things to it. It just keeps growing. The mystery about the net and those hurting it was fascinating. I’m looking forward to the hunt and how they will solve this new problem in the Psy net. We also are treated to another shifter group visiting the area. That storyline was interesting though I would have liked more closer on that storyline.

All and all I enjoyed Alpha Night, but I wasn’t as enamored. Even with it not being my favorite I still look forward to more installments.

Narrator: I enjoyed listening and highly recommend the audiobooks for this series. Angela Dawe is a wonderful narrator and did a great job. All the characters were distinctive and the story flowed nicely.

Rated: 3.5 Stars

Definite bad decisions book club, but I knew that going in. Totally worth it. Instant favorite. Moderate cliffhanger at the end with the architect story arc still continuing, and some risk of future ickiness around people with mental illness as perpetrators (one of my least favorite stereotypes and deus ex machina devices), depending on how scarab is played out. Everything else lived up to my expectations, and I can't wait to read it again and hear the audiobook. ( )

“Have you met Mr. Tall, Dangerous, and Smoldering before?" Margo put a hand on Selenka's shoulder, the contact instinctive between packmates. "It's a serious breach of the girlfriend code to hide snacks like that.”

Nalini Singh took insta-love to a whole new level with Alpha Night. Normally, I'm firmly against anything that even remotely resembles love at first sight, but Singh made it work by placing the blame squarely on Selenka's animal instincts. Her human side was very surprised by the shotgun mating, and it took that part of her a while to develop feelings for Ethan naturally. She wanted to know what he was like as a man (other than tall, dark & handsome), and it was nice seeing them slowly learn new things about each other. It was both sweet and intense, since their mating also made them crave close physical contact.

I really, really love this series! The audio is amazing, and it's so easy to lose myself in the world Singh has created. Every character has value and ends up being incredibly important to me by the end of the book. I also like it when there's a pack or clan focus, since we'll frequently see younger changelings running around the adults and acting adorable. It just makes everything feel more realistic and gives this series a charm that I've found lacking in other books.

Selenka is dealing with issues both inside and outside of her pack, and I enjoyed seeing Ethan seamlessly become a part of her life. He had no idea how to be an alpha to a pack of wolves, but he could guess what Selenka needed by watching and mimicking some of her behaviors. He never tried to be her equal - - even though Selenka thought of him as one - - but quietly supported her from the sidelines. He was quick to use his powers to protect her and others, but he would never try to overpower or outrank her place within the pack. They maintained an effortless balance despite barely knowing each other.

Selenka's father can rot in hell.

Ethan's previous jailor (both mentally and physically) can also rot in hell.

I just love how vividly Singh has portrayed her world, and revisiting it never fails to amaze me. There are so many facets and people vying for peace and power, but it never feels overwhelming. She ties various threads from multiple books into one cohesive story (every book can stand on its own, but it's like they're all collectively building towards something bigger), will have character's crossover from one book to the next, and introduces new people in a way that makes you feel like you've known them forever. Valentin was around in this one (from Silver Silence), so I was thrilled! Because bears...

If you haven't read this series, I highly suggest giving it a shot! If you want a second opinion, check out the post Nick from The Infinite Limits of Love posted today! She also paired every book cover with a delicious-looking dessert, so it's really a win for everyone. I think I'm going to steal her idea and add a little twist! ;) (★★★★☆)

As per usual with a Nalini Sing psy-changling book, it's an auto-buy and a favourite and I loved every moment! ( )

She's a werewolf in Russia; he's an Arrow who feels a numbness inside himself, until they meet and sparks fly. There are things they need to unravel before they can have their happy but the trip was worth it. It will be interesting to see the two of them in the future.

It was one of those stories that I enjoyed reading and I really did want the two to get along and heal. ( )
