FATE OF THE ALPHA, EPISODE 1 is the fourth book in the Tarker’s Hollow series. They do need to be read in the order of release, as this is a continuing serial. There is a cliffhanger. So, do do yourself a favor and get all three episodes of this book before you even start. You do not want to be stuck somewhere or busy and not able to grab the next one immediately. I want to say so much, but I don’t want to give spoilers. Instead, I’ll say that I love Ainsley and Erik. I love Grace. I love so many from the pack. I’m even starting to like Julian. My heart is aching. I’m holding my breath, because that cliffhanger I mentioned – it’s a double! Ainsley and Grace have each been left in precarious positions … until next time … Narration: This series is addictive to me. My commute is long, but much more bearable when I’m being entertained by these characters and the voice of Addison Spear. I’m dying to get to the next book in this serial! Note: While I received this book as a gifted audiobook copy, my opinions are my own and are given freely.

Fate of the Alpha: Episode 1 starts off where Curse of the Alpha left off. Right off the bat Tasha Black does not waste anytime in bringing the reader update on our heroine, Ainsley. We also get a glimpse of Erik, her mate. She has accepted her wolf and even finds it thrilling to run in this form. However, she is still learning how to be a wolf and working on developing her other powers. Her friend Grace Kwan-Cortez is still around and helping Ainsley stay grounded. Julian is still in the picture and has even become a mentor of sorts. However, don't assume that everything is as it appears. Friends are not always friends and not everything will unfold as you think it should! This book ends in a cliffhanger that will keep the reader intrigued and waiting anxiously for the next installment! I for one, am looking forward to the following episode!

This is an exciting new book series by Ms. Black. The characters are colorful and well developed. The scenes are creative and make you feel like you are right there with them in Tarker’s Hollow. I feel you will understand and get more from the books if you read The Curse of the Alpha series first. This would allow the reader to get in touch with all the characters in this new series and understand what is happening and where they are coming from. I really enjoyed this read. You get magic, shifters, hot and sexy scenes and lots of twists and turns. I really like the fact that the alpha in these wonderful books is a female which is rare. Ainsley and Erik are great main characters but the other characters are wonderful too! You can’t really ask for much more. I definitely enjoyed this book and I think most will.

Title : Fate Of The Alpha Episode 1 Author : Tasha Black Reviewed by : Stephanie Jordan ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? Ms. Black continued on from the last book of "Curse of the Alpha" had left off. This book was just like her other books you just can't put it down. I have read many books that I love the author, but it becoming that Tasha Black will be one of my Top Ten Authors. Ainsley Conner became Alpha to her father's pack in Tarker's Hollow. She has come a long way, not only to learn to be a good Alpha but also a Witch. Erik Jensen her Mate is teaching her how all the smells relate to someone or something. It was very hard but gratifying work plus she love running as her wolf. This wasn't all she is learning though , she was trying to learn magic from Julian Magie but it seemed to be harder than being an Alpha. One day as Erik and Ainsley were checking out there territory yellow leaves began to circle Ainsley it turned into black smoke circling around and around her body and than it became a big snake. Ainsley was mesmerized by this that all she could do was stare and than this big black wolf jumped at her and pushed her down laying on top of her to protect her. But Erik was bite and lay unconscious. Yes, this is my cliffhanger but you'll have another one at the end of this book.. I need to read book 2 now.. I was gifted this ARC for an honest and truthful review.

Addicting! It's one of those "great reads" you cant put down.  Waiting to find out what happens in the next episode is like sitting on pins and needles!  If you enjoy Pretty Little Liars, The Originals and Vampire Diaries, Tasha's books are a "must read"!  Kim S

Fate of the Alpha: Episode One, By Tasha Black Reviewed by Pamela Talley A 5 Star Read Arooooo! Tasha Black you are the BEST! This is the next book in the series Tarker’s Hollow BBW Shifter Romance. Part One of Fate of the Alpha. Unlike most serial installments Ms. Black has given us twenty-two chapters. This installment establishes the characters from Curse of the Alpha: Ainsley Connor, Grace Kwan-Cortez, Erik Jensen, Julian Magie and Charley Coslaw. New Characters: Landon Shepard, Garrett Sanderson and Olivia Winter. There are lurkers in the college wood: stray wolves trying to take over as Alpha, Clive Warren, former Sheriff and someone else looking to do damage. Ainsley has so much to learn. Starting with how to be a wolf! She now has to learn magic and bring it to the wolves. The Magic Book that was found in Curse of the Alpha only has spells to hurt wolves and Ainsley must learn to protect her Pack. Ainsley must find the missing link to this magic. What is it she is missing? The Council has sent Olivia Winter to evaluate Ainsley as a satisfactory Alpha. Olivia is a formidable woman who has eyes for Erik. There are mysterious things going on in Tarker’s Hollow. What is Grace Kwan-Cortez doing with not one, but two men? Julian? I am not sure whose side he is on. He works with Prof. Garrett Sanderson but who are these people? Really! These are all valid questions for the answers you will have to read Fate of the Alpha, Part One. Believe me it will be worth your time. Ms. Black has created a world unique in paranormal romance. Did I mention that there are scenes that are HOT? You want these characters to be real, want them to be your friends. Thank you, Tasha for an incredible series.

I really enjoy all of Tasha Black's books and this one is no exception. This book continues on from the previous series (which I went back and re-read to be fresh)in my mind... Ainsley and Erik are a wonderful couple in the past but now things are coming into play that are set to mess with their lives...Ainsley as alpha and Erik as her mate... Yes there is a cliffhanger but man oh man until you reach that part...... can't wait for part 2!!!

I'm so glad Tasha continued on with her werewolfs from Tarker's Hollow series, this book should be read after book 6 of the Curse of the Alpha series as it follows on directly after. I absolutely loved the Curse of the Alpha series & couldn't put it down & it was the same for part 1 of Fate of the Alpha..... I floved it, couln't put it down, hated when reality called.... In Fate of the Alpha we continue on in Alpha Ainsley & her mate Eric's story, Ainsley getting used to being a wolf/witch hybrid, learning how to use her senses & magic doesn't come easy though. So not going to get any spoilers from me. Tasha has writen a book that takes you in, keeping you enthralled until the end... which is a cliffhanger, but it's alright bring on parts 2 & 3, keep them coming as I need to find out what happens. So many questions I have that need answering, but it's only the start....
