Ethan is more believable than most characters that are supposed to have lived many years. I love that the author was able to convey this. The things he says and does fit a character from a different time. I also love his manners and the respect he has for Danielle.
Fateful has made Cheri Schmidt one of my favorite self-published authors. She even has a great blog and website where she sells autographed copies of her beautiful books and jewlery inspired by the Fateful trilogy. I love book inspired jewlery! A well-deserved 5 stars!
The romance was well-written and so very hot (in a clean YA way). I was feeling the characters' passion for each other and swooning the entire time. If you love sweet romances, you'll like Danielle and Ethan's story. Ch. 8 was probably my favorite. I could envision myself right there with the characters! The descriptions are breathtaking.
The writing really makes you feel like you're part of the story. In fact, it made me wish I was in London with Ethan...Sigh! The vampire lore (as well as that of the other creatures) is so unique. I found some great twists, especially the comparison between vampires during the day and those at night. I also liked that the setting of the story took place far away from Danielle's comfort-zone, especially since she's so prone to getting lost.
I really enjoyed the dialogue - it was so well-written, as were the action scenes. The story was long. In a good way.Read more ›
It did have parts that reminded me of Twilight but it wasn't a rip-off/spin-off.
I think the thing I enjoyed most was the humor. I found myself laughing out loud in several parts and it was a nice surprise.
I think it's a fun book and worth the <$1 price tag it has right now. It doesn't end in a cliff hanger so it can be read as a stand-alone.
There were only a couple things I didn't like. Ethan chuckled a little too much. Ethan tended to carry Danielle an awful lot, she says she can walk, so let her walk. =) Lastly, I didn't see why Lucas would be after Danielle right off the bat like that. I know Ethan interrupted his attack, but I wanted a little more motivation for Lucas and Celeste to be after Danielle.
