I LOVED Soulmated and have been eagerly waiting for months for the second book. When I finally got an ARC for Fighting Fate, I was beyond excited to continue the series and get back into the fascinating world of empaths. However, I didn't get to it right away since I had other books to finish for blog tours and reviews.
As soon as I read the first page of this book, everything came rushing back to me and it felt so damn good being with Liam and Lucky again. Fighting Fate was even more breathtaking, heart-wrenching and completely electrifying than the Soulmated! Shaila Patel without a doubt knows how to create the best emotional chaos that will have you undeniably hooked turning page after page after page.
The ending in Soulmated left so many unanswered questions and my heart breaking into pieces. I was really looking forward to learning more about empaths, some lighthearted moments, more steamy kisses and playfulness, and of course MORE of Liam. Well, let me just say that Shaila gave me more than what I was expecting and threw in some amazing thrills and chills and twist and turns.
The writing was fantastic! The characters continued being awesome and the villains perfectly played their roles —they were manipulative, menacing, and creepy. The plot was amazingly fast-paced, suspenseful, exciting, and emotional. And the romance... swoon swoon swoon!!! I honestly could not get enough of this amazing story and found it extremely difficult to find a good place to stop. This book was a masterpiece and I loved that every moment just felt so real -- real pain, real sadness, real hope, real love --- just REAL EVERYTHING. Definitely be prepared to be overwhelmed with so many FEELS... because Shaila's writing style is wonderfully evocative, utterly incredible and so beautiful!
Like in the first book, the chemistry between Liam and Lucky was satisfyingly adorable and heartwarming. I think they're so perfect for each other and I thoroughly enjoyed all their interactions. Their romance was super swoony, cute, and sexy. They were playful, honest, confused, infatuated, fearful, guarded, protective, loving, sweet, determined and could not get enough of each other. Soulmated or not, Lucky and Liam acted like teenagers who were hopelessly in love, but also deeply cared about each other. That certainly took me down memory lane and gave me the BEST FEELS! Their story may be fiction and fantasy, but their emotions were real, raw and relatable -- And that's one of the many reasons why I love this series so much. I can connect with the characters and their stories, and share their experiences and feel all their emotions as they go through them.
With gorgeous writing that will keep you intrigued, delicious chemistry that's nicely balanced with heat and sweetness, and complex characters you can't help but love, Fighting Fate by Shaila Patel was an absolute joy to read. It's undeniably fascinating, romantic, thrilling, and so heartfelt leaving you breathless and impatiently waiting for the next installment. I know I AM!
If you're looking for a heart-stopping edge of your seat YA romantic fantasy, then I highly recommend you add this to your TBR.
I received an advanced reader copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
Love, love, love the set up and all the cultural living-in-America-but-of-Asian-background stuff that goes into this. Laxshmi, or Lucky, as Liam calls her, has to deal with cultural assumptions by her mother about how she should behave, can't be seen with her white boyfriend at Diwali celebrations, and struggles with her identity. Cool stuff.
Wasn't as enamored of the Irish brogue speech patterns Liam, his parents, and mysterious Empath Elder Brennan had. (and that sometimes bled over into other characters). It wore on me. That's most likely personal taste, however.
I also felt that I probably should have started this series with the first book. Liam and Lucky , while not together at the start of the book, are quite deeply connected to each other. And I mean deeply. They are massively in luuurvvve and very vocal about that to each other in terms of saying things like "you are my soul" etc. This felt a bit over the top at times, and I was thinking that if I had been along for the ride as they fell in love and found each other, it might not have felt so overwhelming.
The story is heavy on feelings, and protecting each other, and figuring out what they're going to do with their lives now that they've found each other but haven't quite joined in soulmating (or in a more physical sense, if you get my drift, this is very sweet romance with one joke about "diddies" when she's in the hospital but other wise just a lot of holding and kissing so safe for most ranges of YA). It's a little less heavy in plot. Although we get some intrigue with another Empath Elder out to use Lucky for his own nefarious purposes, and a forced arranged marriage, it's mostly Lucky and Liam feeling each other's feelz as Empaths (lots of water and air imagery describing their feelings.)
If you're a lover of YA fiction with characters that are emotional spigots of angst and love, this book will be right up your alley. And despite my quibbles with Liam's brogue, as a character, he's great (and a hottie). And if you're looking for a main character who lives in her bicultural identity as an Asian-American, definitely pick up this book. As a parent of bicultural daughters, I really did enjoy that part of the book.
