This book was definately good, but not as good as the first three books. In the beginning, the remaining Alphas on the island are all trying to gain control and be on top. Competitions are being held and the losers are sent home by their muses. Allie A, Skye, and Charlie are in a PAP flying competition against the best flier on the island. Getting help from Taz, Darwin, and Mel--who are hilariously disguised as girls (complete Alpha Academy uniform and shaved legs!), they end up flying the PAP t ...more

Spoiler alert!
This was a surprisingly great book, definitely my favourite of the series. Lisi Harrison's style of writing is as addictive and as great as always, and I really enjoyed it, especially the friendships between the characters. Some parts, though, I found a little too cliche for my taste. Like, Charlie working at the White House? Really? Because of something she did on a reality show? And, as Massie once said, everyone knows reality shows are fake. I think that the author also forgot

the ending really bothered me. it wasn't anything like the reader expected and the unnecessary twist threw me off.

The competition at Alpha Academy was heating up. After Shira's surprise leave, the girls in the Academy have to put their game face on because one of them will be become an AFL (Alpha for Life).

Skye won the regatta-paddling challenge, which means all the Jackie O's are safe - for now. But after winning the contest, the housemate of her rival in the game challenged her to have an airplane race in the island. Skye was confident to win it, because she has Charlie on

This was a really awesome book. It wrapped everything up from the marvelous series in such an unexpected way! But it was a good way. :) I love this author's writing style from all the pop-culture references to her characters that can manage to get on my nerves and at the same time making me grin. My only suggestion would be that I wished Alphas had more books to the series! Another spin-off would be nice. xD

It was good, but not the best of Lisi's books. It was Too surprising, which was a surprise. However, it was witty, fun, clever and captivating. If you like competition, girls and the alphas series, you will definitely enjoy this amazing book. I will definitely read more of Lisi Harrison's books.

Quite honestly probably the worst ending of a book series I've seen in a long, long time.

Top of the Feud chain is the final book to the Alphas series, which I think is a really good book. It is about how three girls are stucked in an island and they are trying to find there way to get out of the island. They have to find food and water for themselves because of the plane crash. But the plane crash wasn't that serious. Now the three girls have to use their brains to get back to Alphas Island on time so that they could be an Alpha.
I would have to say that I really liked this book beca

This was an awesome ending to the Alphas series. I loved how the smallest, most insignificant girls got the chances of a life time through Shira and realized she did help them on their way to succeed! Skye was my favourite character in this because I really like dance and she's just so determined and full of life! Even though their friends in the forest were only actors, it opened my eyes to new things everywhere and this book showed girls how amazing they could be with a little determination, h ...more

Personally, I think there should be like a 5th mini book just about sky's, Allie's and Charlie's future in their businesses. Charlie in the white house and what she's doing, Allie on her new show and sky in her dance career and how it's getting better... That's my hope but it prob won't happen . :'(
Also with Charlie, how she and Darwin are doing together and if she sees bee again.
With sky, how her dance career is 'sky' rocketing and to see if she gets any big dance roles etc.
With Allie, to see h

I just LOVE this series - SOOOOOOOOO much! Before I read this book, I had read spoilers about it and I was thinking WTF O_O'' but actually reading the book - wow, I really loved this! :)
I really do enjoy the Clique series & this Alpha series that Lisi Harrison has written (sadly not Monster High....), and I will always treasure these stories for giving me some more life lessons.
Nice fun read, before school starts tomorrow ):

But anyways, heheheh Charlie x Darwin - I shall love forever!

Lisi Harrison proves her hilariously brilliant story-crafting skills again with the fourth and final installment of the Alphas series. Though it wasn't my favorite in the series, I will always enjoy Harrison's writing and I look forward to her future novels.

Top of the Feud Chain by Lisi Harrison is the forth and final book in the Alpha series. Charlie, Sky, and Ali are all students at the, all girls,Alphas Academy. Charlie's mom was Shera's ,(the creator of the academy), assistant. She is a technology genius, and she helped create pretty much the whole school. Her mom had to quit and leave in order for Charlie to go to the academy. Sky is an amazing dancer and her parents own Body Alive Studios. Ali is very special. The real Ali as in the singer/p ...more

I was so shocked after reading this series especially this final book. For in the first to third book, I find it hard to understand what's the true purpose of the prestigious boarding school for exceptional talented girls in the world. Quite frankly, most of the scenes in book one to three are kind of troubling to read. The steady story all through out and the annoying scenes of mostly parts. Just flirting and all. I thought Alpha Academy is a school for talented girls and yet most of the occupa ...more

Recommends it for: Clique fans
In the final Alphas book, Skye, Allie, and Charlie have been through tons of Alpha competitions in order to stay on the island. Girls are sent home everyday for losing some sort of contest. When the Jackie O's are challenged to a PAP race, they enlist some help from the Brazille boys. All is going well, until their plane crashes in the middle of nowhere. Now the girls must find a way back to Alpha Island before they get kicked out.

I thought that this book was a little random with its big issue.

Even though the rating is not a full five stars, Lisi Harrison did not disappoint me. In fact, she made me love her even more.

Honestly, when I think about it, this Alphas series was never as strong as the Clique series. The Alphas may have a lot of things going for it - the amazingly creative technology, the crazy island concept, the whole cut-throat competition idea. It was very new to me. But with only 4 books in this series, it could not compete with the Clique.
That would be my opinion on t

The Alphas series finally draws to a close with this book.
I liked the earlier books a lot more compared to this, and The Clique was much better.
This book opens with the last remaining girls on Shira's island fighting to stay. Who will be the last alpha standing?
The plot was just really.......ugh. (view spoiler)

If I had to describe this book in one word it would be...cheesy. So cheesy it hurts. I was so confused in the beginning of this book. What authority did the girls at the academy have to send the other ones home? Why did they decide to do meaningless competitions to determine who stays? And what was the purpose of dressing the Brazille boys like girls? I was so confused that I was just reluctant to read this book.
But never underestimate the power of Lisi Harrison. Even though the book was still c
...Alright. Was not expecting that ending.

In a way, though, it actually makes me hate Shira-f'ing-Brazille even more??

And the parents of every single girl who allowed this??

I love this book because similar to the Clique series all these girls care about fashion,gossip,and try to be the Alpha. What the girls don't know is that there on television for all the world to see but the girls at the Alpha Academy don't know that. All the girls at the Academy make friends including the 3 main characters they become friends. When they get stranded in a desert they have to become closer and they have to spill their secrets they have kept from eachother. I also like this book b ...more

I love Lisi Harrison as an author for how fun her books are to read. I read all of her books, whther its the Clique, Alphas, or Monster High series, simply for enjoyment. They are great books when you are looking for a nice light read, kind of like a reality TV show, or better yet, almost like a magazine. (Teen Vogue, Glamour, etc...) I would reccomend it to any of my friends... but only if they are girls... :) This book in particular was pretty good beacuse of its kind of expected-kind of unexp ...more
