Alicia (Blackbird #5) by Dahlia Donovan


Alicia is the fifth book in the Blackbird series by Dahlia Donovan. The reviews for Ivy, Natasha, Masquerade and Twelve Days can all be found on my blog as well.

The fifth book follows Alicia, Ivy’s best friend. Starts out with Alicia planning Ivy’s wedding. On the day of the wedding things go horribly wrong. After the vows, everyone is standing around talking. Alicia is yelling at Jezza because he already has two glasses of champagne in his hands and looks like he’s about to get sloshed. All of a sudden she finds herself on her back on the lawn being covered by Josh, the resident panther shifter of Blackbird. She processes that she heard a gunshot and then sees Jezza dead.

Blackbird gets Ivy, Dane, Alicia and the others out of there safely without anyone else being hurt. They go to the main house where they all change from their wedding clothes into something more comfortable. After that, everyone is whisked away to different parts. Alim, Alicia’s uncle, takes Alicia and Josh to his estate. Alim gives Josh his blessing to date Alicia only because he’s saved her life and made her smile for the first time in a long time. Alim takes them to Morocco where they can be more protected since they are friends of the most powerful family there.

Things start to come to light after Alicia realizes that her step-sister Fawn is being a few nasty presents being left on her doorstep back in London. Things start to go really bad when she realizes that some of her more traditional family members are lurking around the hotel and waiting on a chance to kidnap her. Alim distracts Fawn and Josh gets Alicia out of there without any trouble.

Alicia and Josh are now on the run because someone is chasing them and wants them dead. The threats aren’t only coming from Alicia’s family’s enemies but from recent threats to Ivy and Blackbird themselves.


This book was a good one to read. I can’t wait for the next book in the series to come out. I really liked reading Josh and Alicia’s story, especially after Twelve Days. I was really wondering how it was going to play out with them. I love Dahlia’s characters and her style of writing.
