The Alpha King by Vicktor Alexander
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Heartbreaking, humorous, ridiculous, male pregnancy, and a great pecking order book. I just loved it!
Warning: Do not continue if you do not want to read spoilers!
In The Alpha King (Passion's Hero, #1) by Vicktor Alexander Talon Versuthion loses his memory and his family, and decides to remain alone. The Vermithian crash lands on Turmaro and finds himself face to face with the one man he never wanted to meet--his mate, Alpha King Blazell Roughshire.
A delivery for the GPA goes horribly wrong and Talon Versuthion crash lands on Tumaro, the notorious wolf-shifter planet. Lucky to be alive, Tal desperately wants to find his missing adopted sister, but instead meets Alpha King Blazell Roughshire--Tal's fated mate. Before the two can settle into their relationship, they have to deal with conspiracy, murder, kidnapping, Tal's lost memory and his forgotten brothers. But their biggest obstacle is a centuries' old plot to eradicate the human race. Tal, who has made it a point to never fall in love, has to decide if he can open his heart and let Blaze be passion's hero.
When I first read the blurb, I was thinking "Here we go again!" but just plowed on through knowing, from past readings, that Vicktor Alexander had never disappointed, and he did not.
The Alpha King was unexpected. The first few chapters broke my heart when reading about Talon's parents and how he lost his memories. The great thing is that Alexander did not dwell too much on this heart ache and instead gave us a stronger, if not quirky, Talon. One who had funny ideas about how to live his life and his sexcapades. It was a great thought that he gets a loving adoptive family.
The plot turned to the humorously ridiculous when he finds out about his biology and when he crashes and survives and ends up meeting his alpha king, getting to be called the Alpha Queen and eventually, just like any queen, makes sure his man gets the right idea that the queen is always the queen first and the man second. Regardless of fact that both of them were male.
Okay, I think I just confused myself.
So moving on, The Alpha King is a funny book that made me smile and laugh. I especially loved the parts (ridiculous as they may be) when Tal goes through pregnancy blues, hungers, pains, bloating, and labor. I especially liked it when he strangles Blaze in the midst of giving birth.
So yes, this is a ridiculously funny, wonderful fairy tale, shape-shifting mpreg book that is hard to put down. Writing this, I am still laughing over some of Tal's antics and mental ravings.
The best thing about this ebook is that this is just a glimpse of what is surely going to be a popular and well loved series. Just like Vicktor Alexander's other series that also involve male pregnancy (The Wilgrin Chronicles). We all get a glimpse of the future characters like Tal's two younger brothers, his future son-in-law and more. I just hope that the author does not take too long and make us wait.
