Alpha Unleashed is book five and the stunning finale in the Alpha Girl series by Aileen Erin. This book was generously provided to me in exchange for an honest review by NetGalley, Ink Monster, LLC, and by Aileen Erin.

I have been on board with this series from book one, page one. I have watched as Tessa McCaide received the bite that forever changed her life from her soon to be mate, Dastien, struggled to accept who she now was, and to grow and become the woman and alpha mate to Dastien that sh

ALPHA UNLEASHED tied in well with BRUJA, plus the full moon ceremony was a go and the werewolves outted themselves to humans, so Aileen Erin definitely delivered on her promises. Tessa’s confrontation with Luciana was pretty terrific too. As a result, this book had an end-of-the-series vibe to it even though there was an author’s note promising otherwise, just not soon. All those pros notwithstanding, the five installment journey to get here could have been more proporti

ALPHA UNLEASED starts off taking place during the same timeline as BRUJA as well as after. The flow between the two books was well executed and I liked seeing what was happening at St. Alibe’s while Tessa was gone.

Both Tessa and Dastien have grown as individuals and as a couple. I'm really glad that we got to see them mate, finally. It was a long time coming and when it finally happened I thought it was done well, but wasn't what everyone was expecting.

I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for a honest review.

I finally feel like I got some closure with this series! It's definitely not the end of the series but everything finally comes to a head in book five and we get some real results!

I honestly love this plot. It's the number one reason that I have read this series. There author does a great job weaving a fun, spunky young adult werewolf book that doesn't fit the mold of every other book out there.

After failing to steal Tessa and Claudia's power for herself, Luciana has completely lost the plot and in a desperate bid to defeat the werewolves she makes a pact with the devil.

It is up to Tessa and her friends to stop her but when they discover Luciana's plans it becomes a battle not only for the survival of the werewolves and the few remaining good witches, but for all of mankind.

Alpha Unleashed is the final good vs. evil battle in this series and it really rocks. It's one battle after ano

Oh, I just love this series. Tessa and Dastien are so perfect for each other.

As the final installment of the Alpha Girl series, I wondered how it would end. Perfectly is all I can say. Tessa and Dastien worked hard to save the world and find their happy ending.

After spending so much time with Claudia in Bruja, I missed getting her point of view, but was glad too see her and Lucas.

*** I reviewed my personal copy of this book for Wicked Reads***

I have read all the previous books in the Alpha Girl series by Aileen Erin. I have easily grown to appreciate this series and all the characters in this series! Book #5, Alpha Unleashed, switches back to Tessa from book #4, Bruja, which focuses on Claudia and her journey in Peru. Personally, I think if you wanted to you could just skip book #4 unless you're really invested in Claudia's character and want to know more about her. I wi

I received an ARC through NetGalley.

Alpha Unleashed is very likely my favorite of the series. There's so much happening! The first third or so takes place concurrently with Bruja, so we get to see what was happening back at the compound. Nothing is as it should be. Tessa can't feel some of her packmates in the pack bond anymore, wolves are fighting with each other, and she keeps having these moments where she can't wake up, but isn't exactly having a nightmare. And all of this is happening while

I really do love this series. Tessa and Dastien are trying to figure out what Luciana's end game is. Since her powers were messed with, Tessa hasn't had the visions that she is used to. Now, night terrors, yes she's had those, but she cannot remember them. Tessa's cousin Claudia is trying to free her coven members at the beginning and as it evolves, Tessa realizes she may need more help from her cousin than she realized. Problems come from near and far and it seems that she may have to become th ...more
Overall, not bad. Like the previous books, I was annoyed with the juvenile dialogue (even though she curses like a sailor), but other than that, it was okay.

Knowing that, as of the current moment, this is where Tessa's story ends is kind of bittersweet. Becoming Alpha was the first review copy of any book I received that I actually really enjoyed, and after two years, it's really wonderful to see how far Tessa and her cohorts have come, but it's also pretty sad - goodbyes suck, especially when they're related to series, and Alpha Girl is a series special to my heart, but I confess, after falling in love with the faultless Bruja, Alpha Unleashed just ...more

Tessa is still reeling from the events of book 3, where she had her powers stripped and their enemy brought back the dead to fight against the werewolves. Tessa sent her cousin Claudia to Costa Rica as a last ditch effort to find a cure for Claudia's twin brother Raphael before he is consumed by the demon possessing him. Tessa knows she only has a short period of time to get a handle on her powers before something big happens that may just be the end of all that Tessa hold dear.

Just a few months after becoming a werewolf, Tessa is still figuring out how all her witch/were powers work, but she doesn't have time to keep studying. Luciana, the dark witch of coven Tessa had been chosen to lead, has gone completely demonic and is raising demons everywhere.

There is no more time to waste.

And there is nowhere to hide.

Luciana has even managed to reveal the existence of weres and witches to the human world, so Tessa now has to deal with th

I haven't (yet!) had the pleasure of reading the previous four books in The Alpha Girl Series by Aileen Erin but they are all waiting for me on my Kindle for pleasure reading as soon as the time finds me!

It took a quick few chapters to really find myself caught up in the story and feeling like I wasn't missing out on the backstory at all. Ms. Erin did an excellent job of jumping immediately back into action and the thoughts and interactions of her characters carried the story full ahead for me.

I am glad with the way this series ended. It was nice coming back and seeing Tessa and the rest of the wolves and witches finally take down Luciana. The bonding ceremony finally happens, Claudia makes an appearance with her mate Lucas, ties to the wolf were broken and the bad guys were pushed away, and the supernatural community finally gets revealed to the humans and they begin to work together. Basically a lot of things happened in this book and I wouldn't be able to mention all of them withou ...more

I am such a huge fan of the Alpha girl series. I have read everybook and will happily re-read them all because they are just that good.

I never thought i would like the whole werewolf and witches thing but the authoer manages to make it soo cool to be a wolf. So we are in book 5 and what might be the last in the series..... or is it?
Well the story picks up from where that last alpha book ended. Luciana has retreated after the death of her son and Raphael has been infected by one of Luciana spells

I started this book with a certain amount of frustration - I've enjoyed the whole series immensely, but I felt that it was taking a little too long for certain things to happen, and for the whole story to come to a head. Though I expect part of that was just frustration at having to wait for each book to be written and published. I'm not a patient person when it comes to reading, which is why I prefer to find a series already fully-formed before I start reading it. But there are a few authors th ...more

This wasn't a bad series, but it needs better editing and the author needs to keep up with her details. A few examples:

A guard was being placed at Tess's door...the person's name starts out as James and then is Jason all the other times his name is mentioned.

Meredith's name was used instead of one of the two girls being talked about--Imogene and Shannon.

Before going to Peru, Claudia says she hasn't been to her aunt's house before...but she had just been there in the previous book.

If the 1st book in the series had been written like this, I probably wouldn't have bothered reading any of the sequels. This felt rushed and not as well paced as the earlier books but not so much that I didn't want to finish reading it.
I enjoyed seeing the continuing development of numerous familiar characters, plus the addition of some new faces, the ongoing battle of good versus evil, and the young & inexperienced up against the older establishment. That said, I probably won't buy the next
