Mpreg?! Woohoo!!!

Eugenics. Humans are bad and in centuries past were bred into other races, their DNA appropriated and altered.

When a new fear rises: One who can breed pure human again.

Great premise. Love all the political and social consequences brought up by this construct, but the execution was less than stellar. Clumsy world building that has identifiable things, but seemingly out of place. Four hundred years into the future and vanilla ice cream and KinNook-- I'd be surprised if there's a

I loved writing this story, creating this world. Tal and Blaze are a part of me and I'm so glad to bring them to you.

I know there will be people that don't agree with my rating, but it is my opinion. So I loved the story. Talon was so alone without even knowing it. Blaze knew but was waiting for the one meant for him. The two fall in love quickly but that is ok since this is a paranormal story and goes with the overall plot. There is male pregnancy in this story but I liked how the author did it. I am anxious to read more in the series since there are several storylines free and would love to see those people ...more

Loved the detailed world-building but could have used a glossary for the extensive cast of characters/species ;) Blaze and Talon were a fantastic couple and so hot together. It was fun to see the sparks fly between the growly possessive Alpha King and his cheeky pregnant Alpha Queen. The numerous subplots and co-conspiracies held my attention until the very end, and the danger is still far from over. I'm very anxious to see how some of these storylines will be resolved. Particularly wit

Pros:
Idea
Cons:
Feels sketchy maybe because of too much of POV switching, I wasn’t able to feel for MC.
Promiscuous behaviour of MC before meeting with his mate was a big down for me. Especially considering his fear to get pregnant - I felt like his behaviour was out of his character.
Too instalove for my taste
Too many names starting from V, without much meaning behind to memorize, annoyed me to no end. It was like V who? for me many times, reading e-book makes it more dificult to go back for refere

It's not bad, but it gets too explicative. I mean, the world creation seems to have a lot of work put in it, but the info-dump makes my eyes want to slide away from the page.

The prologue wasn't bad, actually - quite prosaic - but later on, it gets really...pedantic.
Blah, blah, blah. Pages and pages of regurgitation of the concept the author came up with for the world, then this:
In short, Tal discovered everything he'd thought about himself had been a lie. And he could remember the horrible conve

OMG! The 2nd version is soooo much better, but be prepared to cry within the first few pages….Buck just broke my heart….I cannot wait for his and Percy’s story. I believe that The Alpha King has taken the place as my favorite all time book….I was leaning that way with the 1st edition but just felt that something more was needed….Wow!!! did I get my wish….READ THIS BOOK!!!

Photoshop mega fail: the body in the background is too big for the tiny head cropped into it. Makes it look like the guy has a pair of huge tits (especially thumbnail size) and with the proportions of the head to body so bad the cover is really off putting for me.

Add in the other guys duck face ... Wow (duck face on thumbnail size. Bigger picture he is actually cute and has pretty lips. Unfortunately I see thumbnails online not the blown up pictures)

Talon can’t remember anything from before his parents disappeared, his adoptive parents have told him everything he knows about being Vermithian and he has sworn to never find his mate for the very real fear of pregnancy. On a routine delivery with his adopted sister they are thrown across the universe during a storm, crash landing on Tumaro is the least of Talon’s worry when he awakens and can’t find his siste

The cover looks really nice . If only the story was more focus on the main characters. But what bothered me the most is the language itself. The use of pet names like "baby" and curses like "shit" seems to make it feel that it is in the "recent timeline " and it just dont fit the intergalactic futuristic setting for me, presumably humans beings were nearly wiped extinct and has " evolved" . This has the elements of a book that I usually like,scifi apocalyptic , mpreg , but unfortunately the dial ...more

Fascinating story set in an interesting world with even better characters, who all go through a character development, which makes you turn each page in anticipation.

A solid story with an amazing plot and sub-plots vowen together without making it look like a complete clusterfuck.

Haven't decided if this should be 2.5 or 3 stars? or....

I felt like I was thrown into a world that was barely explained to me in the prologue. Then we are 'introduced' to one particular humanoid species that starts with 'V' and communes with plants and animals. From there we are told about a 'prophesy' from this species bringing back what sounded like to me pure humanoids (which by the end of the book I didn't see.. but mayhap I misinterpreted it)

This is to be brought about by 3 brothers whose

Review by Jaycee for "Books 'N Cozy Spots Book Reviews", www.Talon-ps.com
Copy of book provided by publisher for honest review.

The premise behind the series in this opener is an interesting one, set in off-planet Shifter worlds post-annihilation of earth and the pure human race. There are a few humanoid races, some, such as the Vermithians, able to mate and procreate with any race and any gender of any race. Prophecy says the focus family of the story will be the instigator for the return of a pu

4 star review by Dan

Generations ago, the population of Earth died off suddenly and the alien humanoids only stepped in to help when only a few hundred humans were left. The humanoids hated the humans, although I’m not exactly sure why. The only way the humanoids agreed to save the remaining humans was that those humans were to be taken to other planets and force bred with the other humanoid species. Many died in the transition, and no full humans now exist. There is a prophecy though that the Ve

I have read this author before. I liked his paranormal elements as well as his unique way of writing in the LGBT genre. His world view is very enlightened. I like that. So when I saw a book by him that not only have the paranormal element but was set in a sci-fi world, well I just had to read it. I was not disappointed.

I was treated to a delightful world – well universe really – of species of every type. The wolf was featured, but there were lions, bears and snakes – oh my! Bu

2nd Edition Review (Publication Date: November 30, 2014)

As a youth Talon Versuthion admired the Vermithian humanoids for their beauty and grace. When his adopted parents inform him that he is also Vermithian it's difficult for him to accept. Talon doesn't see himself as being a person of value, but as one that is easily left behind. Rather than risk being hurt again, Talon takes precautions to assure that he never finds his mate, even if that means denying the loneliness in his own heart.

If it w

Vicktor Alexander has written a fascinating and very different kind of shifter tale in The Alpha King. The blurb does an excellent job of covering the basics of the story, but there is so very much more to the story that I don't want to spoil by adding to it. This is a interesting and densely detailed character and plot driven tale with a plot that flows as smoothly as a placid stream from the beginning to the end. The backstory is richly detailed and provides a solid foundation for the fantasti ...more

I really REALLY wanted to give this book more stars. This is the first Vicktor Alexander read, so I'm looking forward to trying out a few more. I think there will be more stars in the near future

The story is very good but it skips around and picks up theme's and then drops them altogether. There are some really funny things contained within - just silly things like pop culture references and associations, which really add to the value of the story.
Another thing that I found frustrating was the

Vicktor Alexander “Vic” wrote his first story at the age of 10 about his youngest sister and her destruction of the world…with her breath.  Much to his youngest sister’s dismay the story was a hit and became the first story of a series all dealing with the planets that were destroyed by his siblings and their strange quirks and body odors. Vic now enjoys writing about shifters, humanoids, cowboys, ...more
