Alpha Night by Nalini Singh - Book Review

*I was provided with an ARC of this book by the publisher via Edelweiss. This is my honest review* 

Alpha Night by Nalini Singh
Publication date: June 9, 2020
My rating: 4 stars

I've been a fan of Nalini Singh for a while now and so I've been SUPER excited for a chance to read an ARC of this book. I was not disappointed, and I officially have a new favorite character in the Psy Changeling world - Ethan Night.

(this will not be the last time you hear me shouting this in the duration of this review, be warned)

That boy, that poor boy, all alone and tortured in the dark (LITERALLY). I wanted to cry for him, to hug him, protect him. He was just so precious.

I love Judd and Kaleb and Bowen and the rest of the guys, but Ethan has won over my soul so quickly and so totally I'm pretty sure it's a new record.

One of my favorite things when it comes to the books in this series with a psy as one of the main characters, especially an arrow, is the ongoing running joke of THE MANUAL 😂 I love it and I burst out laughing every time they mention “the manual” as a tip of how to know what you’re doing with a woman LOL.

I really liked this book; I could hardly put it down as I was reading it, I LOVE ETHAN (I can’t seem to say this enough but I LOVE HIM), I adore Memory! (this really made me want to re-read Memory’s book, I totally forgot how wonderful and strong she was), I loved seeing Aiden be such a wonderful big brother to everyone, and I was delighted to see Sascha – and Lucas, thought briefly – again.
And that ending, it was SO sweet :')

All in all, a great book, and now I can’t wait for the next one! (I super duper want a Nikita book, but heck I would be satisfied with a Kit book or maybe even one of Bowen’s knights? I would personally love to see another psy-psy book or a psy-human book).

*spoilers from now on*

The manual has become like the sacred text of the arrow squad and I LOVE it because they’re a squad of assassins worshipping a manual about skin privileges and how to please women 😂

I was utterly in love with how Selenka was calling Ethan “mate of mine”, this is my new favorite phrase.

Finding out Ethan is an E was SO COOL. I always wanted a book focusing on a male E.

I LOVE ETHAN, he’s so precious and I love him.
I also love the thought of an E arrow, way to go Ivy, for giving it its own designation!

AND OMG I loved that Memory and Ethan are related! They were so cute together in their brother/sister type of relationship from what we’ve seen.
It’s crazy to think how similar their situation was, being locked away for over a decade, and both of them related and with the same abilities.
Anyways, I adore this bond between them!

The only negative thing I can think of is that I wish the ending was less rushed, as I wanted some more time with Ethan figuring out his abilities, as well as more Memory-Ethan scenes.
But that’s something I noticed in a bunch of Nalini Singh’s books, so it’s not unusual for her endings to seem a bit rushed. 

And a few last words to finish up this review: I LOVE ETHAN NIGHT. 

(this song is literally like Ethan singing this to Selenka 🥺) 

"I love you. I will always love you."
