From Ilona Andrews--#1 New York Times bestselling author of Magic Shifts and the Kate Daniels novels--comes a stark, seductive tale of a world torn asunder by supernatural gifts and irresistible passions...

Karina Tucker is driving a van of children home from a field trip when an unplanned detour to a seemingly ordinary rest stop changes her life. There, she witnesses a world beyond humanity's sight, of frightful powers and chaos, where she is in death's grip...before an irresistibly dangerous male saves her--only to take her captive.

For she is a rare commodity in the shadowy realm she's entered.

Karina soon finds herself caught in a violent civil war where those with inhuman powers strive to destroy each other without mercy. And it becomes all too clear that she must make a choice: submit and become a pawn, or take hold of her own destiny and fight for survival against impossible odds.

Alphas: Origins originally appeared in Angels of Darkness .

Checked this out because of the low star rating. Totally worth it! It wasn't even as bad as I feared. Unlike a certain series about shapeshifting vampires -- i mean dragons -- they don't even incessantly describe women as feeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeemales the whole time!

I loved how often they needed to reinforce that the main man was being such a hero by resisting the apparently overwhelming urge to rape people. My partner and I had a great laugh with this. You can just flip to any page and read something so unintentionally humorous that it makes you cry. I feel bad for the people who enjoy this series.

disturbing, disgusting, disappointing. didn't make it past the 3rd chapter.

I love, love Ilona Andrews, but this story is just creepy. Kidnapping a woman and her child on the pretense to save her life from supernatural forces is not cool anymore. I thought we have move passed this crap. I kept hoping the story would justify the reasoning better than "come with me if you want to live," but nope!
