Fated by (Enchanted Gods #2) K.K. Allen
ABOUT THE BOOK
Bestselling Author, K.K. Allen, continues to take readers on a deeply romantic and extraordinarily suspenseful adventure in a contemporary fantasy series based on a young woman learning to navigate her new existence in the enchanting world where her FATED may just be her enemy.
Katrina Summer finally comes to terms with her enchanted skin as she is challenged with an evil that threatens Apollo Beach.
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.
Fated picks up where Cursed left off when Katrina is trying to get used to her new Enchanted life as a direct descendant from ancient Greek gods. Of course, there are going to be problems with the evil Erebus and his Equinox army as well as Katrina’s discovery of her Fated one which is unexpected and filled with challenges. But Kat is up to the challenge to fill her grandmother Rose’s big shoes as the leader of the Solstice community if only Rose would keep her apprised of everything so her life isn’t in jeopardy. Case in point, Kat’s heritage on her mother’s side is a big surprise.
I was hoping to see the brooding and mysterious Johnny Pierce more in this book and my wish came true. His story comes out as an orphan avenging his parents’ death and his being mislead about Kat’s identity. Johnny’s passion for the ocean and its creatures is a plus as more of his past is revealed. Alec, Kat’s love interest in the first book, returns but in a different role. There are new characters such as the friendly Valli mermaid sisters and their father King Isaac as well as a surprise guest at the cliffhanger ending. The unsavory and evil characters still abound as the author puts in some twists and turns to keep the reader guessing.
The unknowns about how to eliminate Erebus is frustrating to the mystical community as he creates deadly chaos during large community gatherings. In fact, Kat seems to be his target because of her unique heritage. Let’s just say there is a bit more bloodshed and running for your life in this one. And secrets are yet to be revealed.
Overall, I recommend this fast-paced magical tale for those who love fantasy, mythology, menacing monsters, and fated love. I do suggest you read book 1 to get the most from the series.
Thank you to Ms. Allen for giving me the opportunity to read this book with no expectation of a positive review.
