Dace seemed too cliche, and same goes with Cade, but Cade seemed like the more interesting character.
Angela Vu
The story was a bit boring at the beginning and took a lot of time to pick up its pace but once it did there was no stopping and I enjoyed the rest very much.
The author did a great job setting up the characters, giving us an idea of the supernatural elements and enticing us with an interesting story.

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Daire's a girl who travels the world with her makeup artist mom for major films. She's also being plagued by visions of glowing figures and crows. The more these visions take hold, the more Daire begins to questions her sanity. She never expected that these would be the heralding of a calling which will pit her against unimaginable evil.

EDIT: FATED is the first book I have read by New York Times bestselling author Alyson Noel, but I am familiar with her IMMORTALS series. I was a little hesitant to read this because of the mostly negative reviews I have read about her previous novels, but curiosity got the better of me. I'm very glad I read FATED for two reasons. I love Native American myths and legends, and the mythology and traditions in the book made for a fascinating read. This, along with the landscape of New Mexico, brims with magic and mystery. These were the strengths of the story.

Pacing wise, the first third is a little slow, but once things pick up, the story becomes compelling. It takes its time to explain things or let them unravel.

Daire was troublesome for me. She's a level-headed sixteen year old, but she doesn't sound like a teenager. Some of her phrasing is archaic. Also, she is very close minded, even when beyond ordinary things start happening to her. She treats everyone, including her own mom, like garbage. She was very frustrating. Most of her dialogue is complain, whine, groan, moan. But once she started her journey, it was easier to get onto the path with her; not by much.

When she meets her love interest, Dace, it's instantaneous. But he's too perfect. I'm assuming that, since this is the first in a series, there will be more development of him as a person. The villains were a lot more interesting, if in a psychotic way.

Format: Hardcover
*Complimentary copy provided. This does NOT affect my review in any way.*

the book starts off during a time freeze, something Daire is used to y now. What she isn't used to are the glowing people and the crows attacking her in the middle of them. Marked as crazy almost immediately, Daire only has two choices and decides to choose the lesser evil and is shipped off to her grandmother's home--a woman she didn't even know was alive. Quickly she learns about her powers as a Soul Seeker and learns to eventually accept it, to control them. Making things even more interesting is Dace, the boy Daire's literally been dreaming about, and someone who she's immensely attracted to. The problem? Dace is part of a family called Le Coyotes, a family that has tried o control the Lowerworld, an event that will, eventually, kill humanity. Should she trust him? Or is her truly the one she will be forced, fated, to kill?

The book lacked the edge I had been anticipating, I'm afraid. Nothing really seemed as dangerous as this type of story required in order to make you excited. In short--Fated seemed seemed just a bit too innocent at times. Especially with the things we encounter. On the other hand, I enjoyed reading it and the story was as original as you can get in the paranormal genre.

What I did fully love, was the fact that Alyson Noel could create wonderful worlds that honestly didn't sound that farfetched, the way she wrote it! I could honestly believe in the Lower, Middle, and Upperworld if I knew it was fiction. It's just the way that Alyson Noel pieced together the words and sentences that made you convinced of everything. Onto characters, I honestly hated Daire the first few chapters.

Fated seemed like a great paranormal read. The premise was pretty interesting and I had heard good things about Alyson Noel. I read the first hundred pages and it was a struggle to get that far. I did not finish it because I just wasn't that interested in the plot or the characters. It seemed to be gearing up for another cliche YA love triangle and cliche YA instalove because she fell for a guy in her dreams. Daire was also pretty annoying and treated the people in her life badly. The pace was also really weird and there were odd holes in the story that were never really explained. This just wasn't for me.

Also appears on my blog, The YA Kitten!

Most readers know this author for her Immortals series and opinions about it vary. Some call it the best thing since sliced bread. Others think it's decent. Still others think it's gut-wrenchingly terrible. Then there's that contingent who think it's hilariously bad, and that's where I am. I spent months thinking over whether or not I wanted to read Fated and a few weeks ago, I decided to go for it. (You may notice that means I made my decision at the same time the cover for the sequel came out. Shut up! Whatever you're thinking, just don't say it.) I can't say I'm entirely surprised that I disliked Fated.

When Fated gets good, it gets really, really good. I love each and every one of the ideas in this novel, even if they're executed a little weaker than I'd like. Creative, fresh, and fun--exactly what I expected and wanted from it. One thing I love about this author in particular is that she always uses names most authors wouldn't touch because they're so weird. Marliz, Jannika, Django, Daire... Such strange and lovely names. On occasion, the prose is perfect for the scene and the imagery is astounding.

The rest of the time, however, this does not read like this author's eighteenth published novel. That's right: eighteenth published novel. That's pretty impressive, but it reads more like someone's second attempt at writing a novel when they've never been published and they're still trying to learn the ropes. The way most of the novel is written in sentence fragments made me ache for some sentence variety and adherence to the rules of grammar. Fragmented sentences? They're alright with me as long as they're not overused because it's not like everyone speaks or thinks with perfect grammar--not even a stickler like me!
