Fated
The Soul Seekers #1
Author: Alyson Noël
Reading Level: YA
Genre: Fantasy/Paranormal
Release Date: May 22nd 2012
Review Source: Deb Shapiro & Company
Available: Amazon

Summary: Strange things are happening to Daire Santos. Crows mock her, glowing people stalk her, time stops without warning, and a beautiful boy with unearthly blue eyes haunts all her dreams. Fearing for her daughter’s sanity, Daire’s mother sends her to live with the grandmother she’s never met. A woman who recognizes the visions for what they truly are—the call to her destiny as a Soul Seeker—one who can navigate the worlds between the living and dead. There on the dusty plains of Enchantment, New Mexico, Daire sets out to harness her mystical powers. But it’s when she meets Dace, the boy from her dreams, that her whole world is shaken to its core. Now Daire is forced to discover if Dace is the one guy she's meant to be with...or if he’s allied with the enemy she's destined to destroy.


As a fan of Alyson Noel's Immortals series, I jumped at the chance to
read this book. I really enjoyed the journey the characters took in the
Immortals series and was excited to embark on a new adventure with new
characters and a whole new world.

The cover of this book is absolutely stunning. There is a beautiful
girl with long, flowing, dark hair fanning out across the bottom of the
page, on a purple background with ravens and crows flying all around
the title and author's name. I just love it!!

We are introduced to Daire and her mom, Jennika, in this book and it
begins with a punch. Most books tend to lead up to the action, but this
had bits of action interspersed throughout the book, starting right in
the first few chapters. What a way to grab one's attention! The real
action begins, though, once Daire meets Dace, the boy of her dreams
(literally!!) and tried to acclimate to a new life in Enchantment, New
Mexico. She makes a few friends, and even a few frenemies, but the best
part is her relationship with her grandmother. I loved the scenes
between Daire and her grandmother! I also enjoyed the scenes between
Daire and her mom, though the two seemed more like sisters than mother
and daughter.

Daire goes from being very transient to finding a place that she wants
to call home. She goes from feeling like a freak who sees visions and
spirits to some one who has some pretty unique (and very cool) gifts. I
like the magick in this story and the connections to Native American
stories of spirit animals. She is a very strong character who doesn't
back down easily.

This book has it all-magick, spookiness, cute boys, a little romance,
danger, fun and light-hearted moments, some mystery, and there's even
good/evil twins (cute ones, too!) What more can you ask for?

I am very intrigued by this new world that Alyson has created, and I
cannot wait to read more about Daire and her friends in the future.
