Fateful Review


In Fateful, eighteen-year-old maid Tess Davies is determined to escape the wealthy, overbearing family she works for. Once the ship they’re sailing on reaches the United States, she’ll strike out on her own. Then she meets Alec, a handsome first-class passenger who captivates her instantly. But Alec has secrets....

Soon Tess will learn just how dark Alec’s past truly is. The danger they face is no ordinary enemy: werewolves are real and they’re stalking him—and now Tess, too. Her growing love for Alec will put Tess in mortal peril, and fate will do the same before their journey on the Titanic is over.

Featuring the opulent backdrop of the Titanic, Fateful’s publication is poised to coincide with the 100-year anniversary of the ship’s doomed maiden voyage. It is sure to be a hit among Titanic buffs and fans of paranormal romance alike.

What I Liked
I'm not a major history buff (I do love ancient history though) although it can be fun to read, especially when a supernatural twist is added to the storyline. The sinking of the Titanic a very straight forward tragic loss, but add some werewolves into the story and now you have a tragic tail :D
Tess: She definitely makes for a good character, she isn't whiny, she has lived the hard life and those trials have strengthen her soul to make for a strong willed young woman. I like that she is a servant willing to take risks and that she is not a gossiping little annoyance but has well placed loyalty. 
Alec: He does fit some of my favorite male character types, he isn't a brooding as some are but he does do the troubled mysterious lost soul very well. 
Fantastic amount of romantic tension, with the right portions of sweet and doomed.
A Novel
I am so glad there is only 1 book and this isn't a series, of course I could always have more story, but I'm so glad I don't have to wait for another book. I do enjoy reading single books especially with how many books I am waiting for as part of the series. This book was a nice relief from series.

Didn't Like
Absolutely nothing. Well of course I wished that some characters didn't have to die, but that is what the Titanic story is about... unnecessary loss.

If you love anything to do with Titanic and are ok with reading things that aren't completely factual (because I think we all know that there weren't werewolves aboard the Titanic) and love the paranormal, just read this book.
