Series: Enchanted Gods, #2
Release Date: August 17th, 2021
In a desperate search for her missing locket, Katrina is swept into a whole new world of mythological enchantment that places her at the helm of a looming threat. As she makes new discoveries about her bloodline and meets descendants of other enchanted breeds, she unearths the most disturbing Summer family secret of all.
Amid the chaos, Katrina is determined to maintain whatever normalcy she can. She accepts a job at Island Grille where the devilishly gorgeous bartender, Johnny Pierce, makes life even more challenging. Katrina struggles between her lingering and undeniable attraction for Alec, the secrets she must keep from him, and a betrayal she never sees coming.
Mysterious deaths, signs of pollution rising in the bay, the discovery of fated love, and the dark history that follows her enemy’s motives stir up an entirely new and frightening adventure. Katrina discovers that being an Enchanter holds a responsibility that might just be worth killing for.
FATED is Book 2 in the all-new ENCHANTED GODS series.
I’d like to start by saying that while I didn’t enjoy Cursed, K.K. Allen knocked it out of the park with Fated. The book picks up right where the first in the trilogy leaves off and we’re tossed back into the world where everyone is on edge and there is danger lurking in all the corners of their little town. It’s stressful and just when you think you’ve figured out the bad guys and the monsters, something else happens to completely undo what you’ve thought all along. K.K. Allen is a master storyteller, and I’ve said this before, but she has an incredible way of creating a world and building all of the excitement to keep you hooked.
Before you go any further in this review, it should be known that there might be some spoilers for Cursed, which is the first book in the trilogy. These books need to be read in order otherwise none of it makes sense.
With that out of the way, can we please talk about how the tables turned on everyone in this book?! I’m going to be very honest right now and tell you that I never liked Kat and Alec and the whole time, I was rooting for Kat and Johnny and to have them finally have more than just grumpy scenes together made my life. I mean…Johnny is the epitome of the bad boy book boyfriend and I absolutely loved how much more we got to see of him in this book. Thinking about this book now, that is quite literally the only thing I can say without giving it all away!
Fated is exactly what I was hoping for when I picked up this series, because it’s a mixture of mythology and paranormal romance with all of the action and suspense you didn’t know you needed. Think back to all of your favourite myths and legends and K.K. Allen found a way to weave that into the story. So much so, you’re panting for more by the time you reach the end. And the action, suspense and surprises at every turn will just keep you flipping the pages and keep you up all night.
Unlike in Cursed, the romance heats up a little and that only adds to the allure of the story, because these characters are captivating and beautiful, they’re unique and special and you want more of them while also being wary of them. And just when you think you KNOW what is going to happen, that ending throws you for a loop.
Hold onto your seats, readers, because the next in the trilogy (Taken) is going to definitely blow your socks off. And I cannot wait to see what K.K. Allen has in store for us now!
Thanks to K.K. Allen and Wildfire Marketing Solutions for providing me with an advance copy. I am voluntarily leaving an honest review.
