Welcome everyone :) Things may be a little slow at the moment as I am in my last few months of school so I am swamped with work and exams but if you had time to leave a comment it would make my day!

What happens when you discover you aren't who you thought you were? And that the person you love is the person who will betray you? If your fate is already determined, can you fight it? 

When Evie Tremain discovers that she’s the last in a long line of Demon slayers and that she’s being hunted by an elite band of assassins –Shapeshifters, Vampires and Mixen demons amongst them – she knows she can’t run. They’ll find her wherever she goes. Instead she must learn to stand and fight. 

But when the half-human, half-Shadow Warrior Lucas Gray - is sent to spy on Evie and then ordered to kill her before she can fulfil a dangerous prophecy, their fates become inextricably linked. The war that has raged for one thousand years between humans and demons is about to reach a devastating and inevitable conclusion. Either one or both of them will die before this war ends. 

If your life becomes bound to another’s, what will it take to sever it?

Fated is an original take on paranormal romances and I must say I really enjoyed it. There was lots of action, romance and mystery to make it action packed and unable to put down.

Evie is a really likable character. She is strong and stubborn but is loving and protective about those she cares for. From the beginning I grew very attached to her. Lucas, the half-Shadow Warrier hunting Evie, is a wonderful love interest. There is an aspect of forbidden love which makes the romance that much more enjoyable to read.

The plot was full of action and danger. There was definitely questions about who to trust and who to be suspicious of. I was gripped from the very beginning right until the last page. 

Overall, I really enjoyed reading Fated and I fell in love with Alderson's writing style. I MUST get my hands on Hunting Lila and catch up on all her novels! I am really looking forward to the next book in the Fated series!
