Fated by Alyson Noël

     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, but 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 the powers of her ancestral legacy, but it’s when she meets Dace, the boy from her dreams, when things take an alarming turn. Forcing Daire 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.

I was excited about this book because I was already in love with Noël’s writing. I’d read The Immortals series and the Keeping Secrets duo. So I went out on the day it was released and bought it. Like every book I buy, I tore through it and had it finished before I went to bed that evening. I really  think that I love this book (and it’s sequel) more than any of Noël’s other series. I love the magical aspect and the native symbology. When everyone else is making up their own kind of magic -don’t get me wrong, I love nearly any magical story- you can honestly tell that the author really worked hard researching and getting her facts straight. It gives the story a sense of being more realistic. You also have a little romance and a sinister twin thrown at you as the story plays out. I’ve read this book many times and had it signed by Alyson at YALLFest. It’s one of those stories that will never get old. Fated is exciting, mystical, and -at times- super suspenseful. Daire is definately one of my favorite heroins of all time and I’m going to marry Dace. So yeah, I love it.
