I Am The Alpha (Moon Forged #1) by A.J. Downey & Ryan Kells Review
I AM THE ALPHA is a fast paced paranormal story that has action right from the start. Chloe is kidnapped by William in order to pay for the crimes he believes her father has committed. Chloe has no idea who and what her father really is and while traveling with William she discovers so much more to her world than she ever thought was possible.
The attraction and trust between William and Chloe happens much faster than I expected, especially when their circumstances are so volatile. William is very crude and rough with Chloe in the beginning, although his reasons for behaving that way is somewhat understandable. However, he is trying to punish Chloe for something she had nothing to do with. Chloe doesn't know what to believe in the beginning and naturally fights her attraction to William at first.
The paranormal lore in I AM THE ALPHA does have a nice twist. There is plenty of action as William and Chloe flee from William's brothers and try to unravel what is really happening. Secrets are revealed, Chloe is forever changed by what she learns and exposed to, and William has to prove exactly why her is the rightful alpha. I AM THE ALPHA is an action packed beginning to the MOON FORGED series.
P.S. I loved that the bad wolf twins are named Romulus and Remus!
**I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.**
The pack has ruled over its territory, the wilds of Washington, for a generation, but that has all crumbled with the murder of the Alpha. William Reese is determined he will heal the pack by taking leadership, but in doing so he pits himself against enemies he may not be able to beat.
Chloe has been pulled from her home and thrust into a world she never knew existed, a world her father was careful to keep hidden from her. She is now threatened with a gruesome death by terrifying creatures from legend.
Somehow William and Chloe must find a way to work together to stay alive against the forces determined to see them dead.
