About the Author

Addison L. Cain was born in sunny California, but found herself drawn to dwell in older, history-rich places. Japan, Ireland, Qatar, and now Washington DC, Addison is always on the move, always eager to immerse herself in new cultures and people. Her stories reflect the antiquities she loves: deep and sometimes very dark. Driven to push her characters beyond the pale, Addison’s books are not for the faint of heart.

An alumni of California State University Fullerton, she earned a degree in Japanese and spent years in Asia studying indigenous Japanese religion. Primeval forests and worn pathways have led to her obsession with gardening. Her Great Dane approves, loping around the yard and getting into mischief. Unfortunately the cat has to watch from a window, and because Addison is a total sucker for his sad golden eyes, he gets hours of belly rubs and too many treats.

I am so angry and upset... and grateful. This book, and this series, has ripped me apart, put me back together again, and then left me broken and sad. But only an amazing author can pull that amount of emotion out of a reader. Personally, I read books to escape reality. I want the HEA, the love will always win in the end fantasy; this book DID NOT give me that. I feel cheated and robbed. I'm giving the book 4 stars because the story telling was brilliant. It turns out, it just wasn't my kind of story. I received an ARC of this book for an honest review.

Loved the first two books but buyer beware much speculation that SPOILERS SPOILERS- They really are not dead and they will HINT HINT appear in a new series in same universe with a different couple. So yes the trilogy all of a sudden has become a saga. Sorry not what was advertised. And notwithstanding the fact this is very exciting for some for those of us who were new to Ms. Cain and assumed trilogy is a trilogy find this lack of ending and wish washy dealing with the story extremely frustrated aside of the fact we were lead on. Every time when asked when would we get answers in both her newsletter and her posts she would say in book three it all will become clear. Yes clear as mud and what we got was no answers and a blood bath. Sorry don't intend to read anymore because we cannot trust she knows where the story is going if she did she would have made sure the non HEA warning was clear from the start (and not conveniently add is in the last blurb) and maybe maybe managed better and not alienated a good number of fans. I might revisit her in a couple of years to see if her writing has matured and no need for this drama is needed.

I think I waited forever for this last book. This whole series pulls you in! It is a dark and unique story line that I couldn't get enough of. I am not sure how I feel about the ending though . It's open to interpretation, but I personally wanted more closure from it.

Despite wanting to tear my hair out several times over this book I'm rating it 5 stars. I had to take a major breather before reviewing. After being able to finally calm down, breath, and think rationally it's definitely a 5 star book. The writing was sensational, much better character development and world building. It kept me wondering what would happen, questioning how I wanted it to end and waiting breathlessly for each moment. It made me question everything I know about society even our own. Be forewarned, this book is a crippling journey, it may (probably will) result in a book hangover. Still worth every single moment I read.

So, the story continues.....the book ends on a cliffhanger...literally! I really enjoyed this 3rd installment. Shepard really comes around and becomes more of a "hero" and it is definitely a page turner. In fact, I was up quite late finishing up this book. The last 40-30% of the book is full of action and sadness. I felt Claire was treated too brutally in this book and Svana not severely enough! After all that Claire had gone through, I wanted her to have a better solidified hea. And the epilogue is just a continuation/peek into the next book, which take place in another dome with a different couple. In Stolen, the story goes back and forth from Claire/Shepard and Brenda/Jacques. Finally I really enjoyed this book but felt that it should have been made clearer that this is not the end of Claire and Shepard's story.

I wish I could find more like this. Interesting story and characters and steamy moments. Don't read this if you want a traditional romance. The story gets better as you continue through the series.

I still don't know if this was the end of the series... It left me hopefully, but a lil confused at the end... I hope they are together...

This book slayed me, it tore me up and then put me back together at very end. I love Addison Cain and her work. I love that she doesn't write traditionally and that this wasn't an ending I was expecting, but I loved it none the less. I felt like she stayed true to the characters throughout the three books and she finished strong. I just love Shepard and Claire. You wont see the ending coming, its thrilling and heartbreaking all at once. I was given and ARC for an honest review.

I was given this book as an ARC book to evaluate. . to begin with you really must read the other two books to understand anything in the third book. Also the story has so many things going on at one time I had a hard time following it and especially since it had been awhile since the last book. It took me a minute to remember all of the people and what had happened in the first two and you have to know or you have a very hard time following. I did like the book because I was hoping Claire and Shepard would at least fall in love and they did. The end confused me and was very sad up to the end and then I really got confused. I love this author but if you haven’t read the first two books you wont understand it. The part where they fell in love was very short and the rest of the book is all about torture, capture , and a lot of betrayal and death. This poor woman lost the man she loved and his child at the end. It is a sad story full of twists and turns but the author did a good job of keeping the three books together. It read smoothly from one book to the next.

This is my honest review for my ARC copy. If you’ve read the series, you’ll know it’s a dark tale. But it’s important to read the last few description lines. There is no happily ever after here, at least not one that is clearly stated. It left me unsettled because of that. I wish this weren’t the last…that there could be one more…that shares the ending I see.

This is not your average happy ending romantic novel. Addison Cain has written a trilogy of dark erotica here that is nothing like what I have ever read before in the apocalyptic style. Reborn is a stand alone novel but to really understand Shepard and Claire's relationship and the dynamic of both characters you should read the whole set of books. This novel made me as the reader ache to see both characters find their happy ending. Their bond grows in this book as Claire begins to finally understand what Shepard has been telling her about her people under the dome. Most of those under the dome of Tholos are not good people. They are self serving and only care about themselves. A few of them, maybe a small handful of people actually care for someone other than themselves. Claire has gradually come to see this. Her bond with Shepard has grown into a kind of love and she is also beginning for care for the son she carries. Shepard too, has grown to love Claire, and wishes to save her from the world. However, don't get your hopes up that their story will end happily. Although I loved this novel, the ending was very dark. If you don't like tragic endings then you won't like this ending. Also the ending for Claire is quite violent and evil. However, I don't want to spoil it for you. I really enjoyed the whole series and I highly recommend it.

I have loved these stories so much. I couldn't wait for the next one to come out. It made me care for a lot of the characters and I couldn't wait to find out what happened next. I'll admit I wanted a HEA for the characters I care about but I can live with a sad ending even if it wasn't what I wanted. I have to say though that I'm confused. IS she dead or isn't she? How could she survive a fall like that? Is he dead or isn't he? Why pretend Shepherd is dead if he isn't? Argh!! I hate that. But, I still love the stories, still want them to carry on. I stayed up til 2:30 am to finish the story. Feel Like I've been put through the wringer. I'll be a zombie tomorrow.

I did not read the whole series. I read this book. I enjoyed the first 3/4ths of the book. The relationship between Claire and Shepherd was engaging. However, it was difficult to follow and understand a large portion of what had happened to arrive at the point this book describes. I have read series books in the past that eventually catch the reader up to what is happening in that book you are reading. This is not one of those. The story and setting was interesting and unique. I loved the care Shepherd gave his "little Napoleon." You could feel the struggle Claire was having in herself to admit she loved her alpha mate. I hated the brutal rape and death of her unborn child Collin. Of course that is a testament to this writer's abilities. She drew me into the plight of the pair bond. I was comforted with the two dying in each other's arms. However, the story then started the twists and surprises. Claire is dead with Shepherd. No, Claire's alive but not for long. She follows Shepherd's voice off a cliff to her death. Wait, don't be so sure. I am hoping for another book. I was provided an arc for my honest review.

IT IS EASY TO LOVE YOUR FRIEND, BUT SOMETIMES THE HARDEST LESSON TO LEARN IS TO LOVE YOUR ENEMY. I have been so caught up in this engaging saga, Alpha Claim, and even when other readers and reviewers are mad at the ending, I found it brilliant and do not believe it is the end of Claire and Shepherd. I think we will see them again in the new series, Alpha Control. Or at least I sure hope we do. Maybe, just maybe, Addison Cain wanted to allow the reader to make their own personal assumption as to what really happened to Shepherd and Claire.....did they find each other? Will we every really know? Claire is nesting, preparing for the birth of their son, and she has made concessions with Shepherd. “Something felt wrong, but life was wrong, the resistance had been wrong, and it was time to put faith in something new.” Shepherd has a duty to uphold to the Followers, but there is no doubt he truly loves Claire, his mate. “An animal roar, a thing of great violence ripped past the Alpha’s lips. ‘Every last thing I have done, EVERYTHING, has been for your benefit—even knowing my actions cost me your favor. THAT IS WHAT A WORTHY ALPHA DOES FOR HIS MATE!’” But then there is Svana, who is referred to as his beloved. She is as evil as they come and upholds that status in this third story. Corday is caught between a rock and a hard place with wanting what is best for the people of Thólos and trying to rescue Claire from Shepherd. “Neither was at peace, each of them raw from battle.” Claire had fought her pair-bond. Claire had stormed against her mate to free the Omegas. Through her flyer, Claire made herself a beacon and a movement. She did it with no support. She did it knowing it would cost her her life. The plot will keep you on the edge of your seat as this story stays in constant suspense. The characters are a diverse group of Alpha, Beta, and Omega, and waging war and fear with the threat of the virus, Red Consumption, being released on the people. The story is a power struggle and even among those who are called Followers, there are traitors in their ranks. The ending of this story is more of a cliffhanger, even though years have passed and Claire is told that Shepherd dies during the siege, and then Claire died, but there is no proof of her body, I think this is not the end. Especially when you read that they are a new series called Alpha Control. I look forward to reading more by Addison Cain. “Engage people with what they expect; it is what they are able to discern and confirms their projections. It settles them into predictable patterns of response, occupying their minds while you wait for the extraordinary moments—that which they cannot anticipate. –Sun Tzu”
