From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Immortals, Alyson Noel, comes Fated--a breathtaking new saga brimming with magic, mystery, and an intoxicating love story that will steal your heart away. Meet The Soul Seekers.

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.

originally appeared on: Bookshelf Confessions The cover is so gorgeous. The hair, the earrings, the color (I got the pink version) it all mixed so well.Pretty!!! I've read Alyson Noel's Immortal Series, although I haven't read the last book yet. For me that series, has high and lows, it got a good beginning, but the middle books started to go slow for me (like, you fell in love with a television show, then the director thought of extending it because he thought we'll like it, but no, it just actually ruined the story, better to go with the original storyline I guess), a friend o fmine said, the last book EVERLASTING is as good as the first book, so I think I'll give it a try.>:D. With FATED, her new series, I have doubts, but with the nicest cover among her books up-to-date, and a promising new theme, I couldn't resist the lure, and so here I am, just finished reading it and fully-satisfied.>:D Daire and her mother, Jennika have always moved to different places and get to interact with famous people, that's one great privilege of your mother being a Hollywood make-up artist. One queer thing she has never told anyone even her mother, since they won't believe her, is that there are times, when all stand still except her, like time has stopped except for her. It's fun and she got used to it but on her sixteenth birthday, lots of things begin to happen and they're not good. She's been haunted by dreams and reality alike, worse, her mother and doctor believes she's delusional. When she and her mother don't know what to do, Paloma, Daire's grandmother suggested to take care of Daire. So Daire goes with her grandma to Enchantment, Mexico (the name already gives the vibe), learns her bloodline, her ability, her family's past, her destiny and the boy she must save. I don't know why, but I fully understand the prologue, and the story just got better the more I read. I always love Noel's writing style, I just hope that she won't get sidetracked with the middle books and continue her planned storyline. Noel doesn't just write stories, she brings her readers into her story and made them experience themselves. I love the animal guides, the sayings, the crow prints in the pages made this book superb. The characters, flawed as ordinary humans, are all unique and relatable. The idea of a good/bad twin (Dace and Cade) is good, though how I wish it isn't so clear who Daire wants. It ends where the pieces started to clicked and yet leaves enough space for new questions that hopefully will be answered in the next book. The Native American Mythology is a new theme for me that will entertain me for awhile. :D FATED is not just another paranormal story, it has substance, family relationships, friendship, a romance that's not over-the-top, learning and lore. It's a promising first book that not only engage and keep you on edge but would surely make you a fan of the Soul Seekers Series (glad to be part of it). A page turner from start to finish. Very highly recommended! P.S. Even if you're not into The Immortal Series or Riley Bloom Series, give this one a try, it won't disappoint you if you're looking for a fresh read. Thanks to Alexandra Mencel at St. Martin's Griffin for this finished copy and a promised of ECHO in exchange for my honest review. Looking forward to reading it..:Dshow more

I had been anxiously waiting on the release for Fated after having read The Immortal Series and the Riley Bloom Series. I was also trying to keep my expectations on an average level since The Immortal Series was a bit up and down for me (I have issues with book 3, lol) but really enjoy reading about Riley Bloom. Alyson Noel's writing and world-building is astounding! The story-line is somewhat similar to The Immortal Series in that both main characters learn that there is much more than just the world that we live in. But the similarities end there. The Mexican and American Indian influence and folklore to it was so interesting to follow which gives the book such a distinct supernatural feel. I cannot even imagine the amount of research that was done to create such a story. The main character, Daire, travels the world with her mother, Jennika, who is a celebrity make-up artist. While traveling, Daire starts to have visions that would cause any person to never want to leave their house again. As time goes by, while in Morocco, the vision gets worse, more graphic and scary to which she finally has a break down. Trying to keep Daire safe and out of the hospital, Jennika agrees to let Daire stay with her grandmother who live in Enchanted, New Mexico. While there, Daire learns about her dead father's family, why Daire has these visions and who she really is. It is fascinating to learn everything alongside with this main character. And yes, there is a love interest. It is a combination of it being insta-love and not. It is hard to explain and one to definitely read and follow along. I don't want to give any spoilers, just know, I really loved how they came together. I am really looking forward to learning more about who and why a certain someone or someones is 'fated' and why a particular someone is referred to as the 'echo'.show more
