Rebel Fae


Heartland Forest #2


Alexa B. James


Reverse Harem


What’s worse than a sadistic werewolf? A fae queen hellbent on revenge.
Two months after meeting my mates, we’ve settled into a semi-comfortable life. Yet as the new alpha of the Six Rivers pack, it falls to me to make peace with the fae and other supernatural beings surrounding Heartland Forest.
But not everyone wants peace.
When a swinger party turns into a bloodbath, all evidence points to a member of my own pack. Hungry for vengeance, Fae Queen Titania is determined to avenge the death of her twenty-two subjects killed in the massacre. But I’m not convinced.
None of my wolves are capable of that kind of carnage. Are they?
War is brewing, with the fae queen demanding a life for a life. With my mates and my pack in danger, time is running out. Can I uncover who is behind the murders before someone I love becomes the next victim?


3stars rating

Was good, with clear and detailed scenes and environments. I would have liked to learn more about the state of the world though, is the whole world ravaged by earthquakes, are there many supernatural groups? While the NALC is mentioned, what is it exactly (except for the bogeyman it seems)? Why haven’t they even inquired in what was happening in book 1 or book 2?

Character development:

Was decent. This book takes place a few weeks after the first and poor Lance is still (officially) unmated. Scarlet sleeps with his brothers, but not with him, I really feel for the guy 🙁 It really made me not like her as much as I did before. Of course, this whole situation is something she needed to get used to, not saying that, but it felt like she wasn’t putting in any (or at least enough) effort to get to know them or let them in.
As this instalment is centred around the fae, we get to know Mack a bit more (unfortunately, that also means his mom and sister… talk about a family with issues).
I did, however, miss more background from the guys, we really still only have superficial information about them.

Pacing & Flow:

Were good. I pretty much read this in one go again (though it wasn’t as late, yay). Good balance between conversation and all the action.

The book itself:

The book itself was well written and there were no (noticeable) errors. And yes, there is sex described in this instalment (if that is important to you).

Final Thoughts:

I voluntarily read an advanced reader copy of this book and while I liked and enjoyed it, there were parts that were I felt were lacking a bit.
Still, I enjoyed it, and that is what matters most 🙂
