 Life has been crazy since Tessa McCaide moved to Texas. She’s gone from being a normal-ish girl with visions to a super-powered werewolf. She’s fought off vampires and broken a nearly unbreakable curse. And she’s got a hot mate, Dastien Laurent, to keep her busy.

Things are looking up until the full moon ceremony rolls around. Before Tessa can strengthen her bond with Dastien, the local coven crashes the gates, demanding that Tessa—their heir apparent—be returned. If the pack wants to avoid a war with the witches, handing Tessa over is the only option.

Tessa doesn’t want to cause an all-out fight, but joining a dark-magic coven isn’t on her to-do list, especially if embracing her magic side means parting with Dastien. When the coven leader tries to control Tessa with dark-magic, Tessa realizes she has to dismantle the coven or prepare the pack for war. Either choice will change her life—and her world—forever.
AVOIDING ALPHA felt like more of a filler book so I was excited to jump into ALPHA DIVIDED and continue the story I fell in love with during BECOMING ALPHA.

It was really nice to see how much Tessa's feelings about her wolf have changed. She has finally accepted it and it was pretty painful to watch her being forced to suppress that part of herself in ALPHA DIVIDED. Tessa doesn't want anything to do with the Bruja community and the way it was forced on her sucked. The good thing is he really did learn a few things about herself she needed to know. Anyone who has been reading the series knows that Luciana is up to no good and has an ulterior motive for everything she does, it was nice to finally see her motives revealed.

It's a bit of a bummer that things between Tessa and Dastien were once again pushed off. We waiting during book 2, we waited now through book 3 and now we have to wait again through book 4 because book 4 will be following Claudia while she travels to Peru. I am all for a little waiting but that is just ridiculous. I am glad we got a full feeling story back though and I am still a fan.

I gave it 4/5 stars
