Summary

Max Remus couldn't care less about finding his mate—unlike the rest of his fate-obsessed pack. He totally prefers hanging with his bestie, eating his dad's steak sandwiches, and drawing in his trusty sketchbook. But all that is about to change at the Blue Moon Festival—a summer camp where Elite Pack wolves go to find their mates. The festival is a rite of passage for every teen werewolf, and this year's festival will be one to howl home about. The alpha's son, Jasper Apollo, is attending for the first time. When Max finds himself inexplicably linked with the exceptionally handsome but totally jerk-faced heir, he's forced to grapple with the unexpected feelings clawing at his soul.

If Max rejects his destiny, will fate's bite be worse than its bark?

Netflix's Young Royals meets Teen Wolf—the first instalment in a thrilling new series, The Alpha's Son is a heart-wrenching young adult, wolf shifter romance, full of yearning, comedy, and adventure.

Start listening now! And may the Moon Gods light the path between souls.

One of the best books

The story is very interesting and sometimes surprising. I did not think that this book will be so amazing and modern.

I knew it was YA, but god DAMN.

barely through the first chapter and I've already had enough. I WANT to say if you're above the age of 13... BUT, I'm gonna be nice and say 16 - no, 20 - then please, save yourself your credit. This story reads like something a middle schooler would write on wattpad. Like, I don't know what I expected, but it certainly wasn't this cringe-fest.

Even though the Arthur tries to break the fourth wall by acknowledging that it's a cliche, it doesn't do anything the make the cliche land, and the main character still screams "Well, I'm not like other girls!!!" I tried to ignore the mention of scrolling through "tiktok" and words like "bestie" but no matter what this story sounds like it's written in the voice of your everyday Gen Z tween that you will find on tiktok. And I'm not saying this to bag on gen Z cause I'm gen Z myself but shit, do better.

I wasted my credit to read "Ew kissing, uh! So gross!" and "Uh, how dare you bump into me! what a jerk!" "No, you!"

like ffs.

it's books like this that reminds that literally anyone can be an author and that I might as well open google docs myself if there are people like me who would be silly enough to spend money on stuff like this. Better off reading the Omegaverse tag on AO3.

Sequel. NOW!

okay on a serious note I really liked this. The narrator was awesome when it came to the voices and the actual feeling when saying certain parts, such as the awkwardness or panic, in that way that is one of many interpretations readers could have if they were reading the physical copy. And it's the kind of entertaining that has me snickering at the main character's misfortune, and squeal when things get really cute (and laugh out loud when a perfectly guess the point certain distractions pop up (unfortunately it is a bad word so I can't really say it on here)

reluctant 4/5

story was great, refreshing and unique, however I felt like while the story moved around the main characters their relationship stayed 10 feet apart till the final page, hard to root for that.

Too much and in a bad way.

Narrator is great!! But not a happy story, the romance is too much and in a bad way. The main character is so needy it's self-depreciating especially being rejected over and over again to a character that has not shown any emotional connection to the main protagonist. I feel for Max but in truth if I was a parent I would drilled it into my son's head that he is worth so much more and that Jasper doesn't and will never deserve him. The story is a constant beating time and time again that one sided love is never enough. It's best if Max utterly goes off on Jasper and find someone new. I do hope that the next installment is better. A better balance of compassion and angst, just without Jasper. I wanted to root for the alpha's son but this was utter character assassination and I don't think Jasper can be redeemed.

so if you love being constantly battered with one sided love angst then I recommend. Sadly my personality dictates that I will have to read book two if published to truly see if the story gets any better but had I known I would have skipped this title all together.

Waste of Time

Michael Mola is a reasonable narrator, and dies a nice job here. Unfortunately the author creates ridiculous characters that don't reasonably interact with each other. By the time you finally get invested in any of the characters, they do something idiotic and annoying.

“Maybe your path isn’t the one you expected, but it’s your path and it’s valid.”

I’m giving this five stars because I want more books in this series and I want more queer books from this publisher. I’m highly annoyed with the ending of this book, but I have high hopes about future installments. This has all my favorite tropes; enemies to lovers, there was only one bed, mate bonds. I really hate the ending of this book.

Ending was lacking

First of all, I gave it a 4 all around because of the publisher. They’re trying to get more stories with representation put out and I greatly appreciate that.
That being said this story was… okay.
Overall the story was pretty solid. It had a good plot and while it was very cringe at times it wasn’t unexpected. Especially since it’s obviously based off of Teen Wolf which was pretty cringy at times. I had a hard time separating the characters from their TW counterparts but about half way in it wasn’t as hard. The reveal at the end was actually pretty good and I didn’t see it coming so I think that’s another reason why I liked it more than I probably should have. The characters were all kind of lacking to be honest, the only character I liked was the ballerina and some of the characters that were put in were obviously there just to get the plot moving and we’re not given any substance which was annoying because I would’ve loved to seen the Latina character get more action. The main characters were flesh out pretty well. Max maybe not so much but he was likable to an extent. I would’ve loved to have seen them have more sweet moments together instead of the dramatic ones but they did peak my interest. The biggest let down was the ending. While I understand they’re probably trying to get a series going I did not like the ending whatsoever. I feel like it could’ve been resolved more and they still could’ve given us a tease for the next book but instead it ends very abruptly. So much so that it distracts you and you can’t appreciate the rest of the book.
In the end, if you read some TW fanfiction, chances are you’ve read some better ones than this story but it’s got some fun moments. I recommend listening to it when maybe you’re just trying to pass the time along at work. That’s what I did. Will I be reading the sequel? Probably but honestly just to hear what other cringy pop culture references they pull out.

Great Story, Kept me on the edge of my seat!

amazing story telling and a great read! numerous twists and turns made it very difficult to stop listening. Author built great lore and gave just enough info to understand how their world operates. I really hope the author continues this and turns it into more than one book!

A Quick Solid Read with just a bit of Disappointment

I decided to rate the book at 4 stars because this is a small publishing company that will be producing the types of books that I want to read. While parts of this book were cringy and the pop culture references will not hold up in a couple years, I do think this is a solid book. I loved the premise and while Jasper does come off as cruel and uncaring I can see why he would. I wish there were more sweet scenes instead of it being so dramatic from start to finish. Max gave Jasper one too many chances in my opinion especially towards the end of the book. The narrator also did not have consistent voices for some of the side characters, particularly the female characters. My biggest issue with the book is the unsatisfying ending, which sets up a sequel that at this point I am not sure I will read. The antagonist reveal was surprising to me and I thought was handled pretty well. Overall, dispute the issues I have pointed out I really enjoyed the book and had it been a single installment I may have loved it but the ending really left a bad taste in my mouth.
