-The Good: What drew me to the book from jump was the heroine, Elena Rosales. I loved that Elena’s half Mexican, half Fae and that it’s part of her narrative, but not THE story. As the book went along, the romance between Derek and Elena does a good job of grounding the fantastical elements of the story.

Overall, the story skewed young to me, with Elena just turning eighteen and coming into this crazy power to manipulate liquids and transmutation of elements. It’s very scientific at times, as there’s a Fae superbug that’s wiping them out quickly, and it’s a race against time to find the cure. I will say though that it’s not strictly young adult, as there are many, many kisses (which I enjoyed) and some love scenes that were definitely more about the romance than the down and dirty. It fit perfectly within the context of this story and I enjoyed them.

There’s alot to take in with this ‘verse, since Elena and Derek are what’s known as Halven, children born of a Fae/Human coupling. That’s a serious no-no, and the prejudice that they encounter was a good allegory to what many mixed race children have to deal with on a daily basis.

-The Mostly In Between: I wouldn’t call this bad, but it is part of the prose - alot happens off-page, and because it is the first book, there’s alot of information that needs to be parsed out to the characters and the readers. I would have liked to see more happening in real time. To have seen the devastation wrought on the Fae because of this bug, to meet some characters who play integral parts of this story.

So there was an ad on a social media site that stated that this was just the book for fans of one of my favorite authors….

I normally love fae books. I am guessing that the issue here is me not the book. I went in expecting one thing and got another.

I could not relate to the main character, Elena. She claims to be very smart and yet she keeps doing dumb stuff. Elena’s never had a boyfriend before until Derek. For me there was no chemistry between the two. They start off as neighbors, and fellow science geeks. The relationship starts half-way through the novel and moves hello kitty fast. Then something happens, that pretty much ruined me cheering for them as a couple. I think the logical of the situations was also lost on me such as she has to go invisible (Derek’s halven ability). In order from them to make her invisible, they have to literally make out. How do you run from the enemy while making out? The enemy with arrows and swords? Seriously how does he run miles carrying her kissing the whole time- if they stop they become visible.

What I did like was Elena’s body guard Keen and her roomie Reese. That is a story that I am looking forward too. Fates Divided was just not the book for me below are some links to folks who loved it.

Lots of fascinating world-building, really interesting magic, intriguing characters and sweet, passionate romance. The story & writing has some bumps and things I may not have totally liked, but all of the other stuff I just mentioned is fantastic and overshadows the bumps.

Elena and Derek are amazing together, fabulous chemistry and just the cutest couple. They go through so much together as they are both discovering this new world they didn't know they belonged too, and because of this, their romance blossoms faster, yet still remains sweet and innocent. Though there are definitely some yummy hot moments.

So, overall, this story is definitely worth the read just for the great world-building and romance and intriguing characters.

I'm a sucker for fae books. This was a new author for me. I loved the concept of the authors approach to this paranormal romance. The book evolved into a complex plot, with compelling characters. The final section ended in a bang. Looking forward to the sequel! Five glittery stars!

I received an ARC of this book in exchange for a honest review.

was really excited to see that Jules had a YA paranormal series planned. I have read her Blue Series and absolutely loved it so once I got wind of her working on something like this I was instantly interested. I am a sucker for a new YA or NA paranormal series! I was not disappointed with this book it truly had everything I look for in a new series.

A relatable heroine - Elena is a freshman in college just getting the hang of this being an adult and living on your own thing and all of a sudden these events start happening. (Like living on your own for the first time isn't hard enough right?) she is a chemistry major and was working on a solution in a lab when it begins to boil over. . . A little hard to explain and so she tries to experiment in her apartment only to discover that she can indeed cause things to boil over with just a wave of her hand basically. Wanting to test out her abilities more she tries to figure out which lab she can gain access to only to discover that no one is allowed to access the labs except during class hours. Enter in Derek her next door neighbor! He says that he can help her gain access to one of the labs but there is one condition that he has to stay with her while she is in there. Thus begins the adventure! Racing against time lends tension to the story and that along with the trying to figure out who and what you are and who is after you makes for a entirely enjoyable read. There is a bit of a romance angle to the story but it's not the entire storyline haha. There are some fantasy elements to this story for example There are Fae. But in true Fae fashion they do not do anything easily.
