Review: Fated (The Soul Seekers #1) by Alyson Noel

Until now, he's existed only in her dreams -
but fate is about to bring them together.
I shove through the crowd, knocking into girls and bouncing off boys, until one in particular catches me, steadies me.
I feel so secure, so at home in his arms.
I melt against his chest-lift my gaze to meet his. Gasping when I stare into a pair of icy blue eyes banded by brilliant flecks of gold that shine like kaleidoscopes, reflecting my image thousands of times.
The boy from my dream.
The one who died in my arms.
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.
Once again, Alyson Noel has really WOWed me with her work. This is a wonderfully brilliant start to a new series. The storyline is strongly interconnected with several events happening all at the same time. With the intense writting style you never get lost or confused with what's really happening. The details of the people and places are amazing. When I picked up this book, I feel into that world and everything around me just feel away. I love the characters with all their mystic powers and beliefs. Fighting against evil forces is a full time job. One that the main character takes on with the help of her friends and family. Our herione has to try and fill some pretty big shoes. In the end she not only steps into her role fully but she gives it her best shot. As always evil is never conquered just diminished and weakened. They all live to fight another day. I am anxiously waiting for the continuation of this awsome journey! Highly recommened.... Happy Reading :)!!!

  1. I've wanted to read a book by Alyson Noel but I've always been hesitant due to the bad reviews toward her other series, The Immortals. But after reading your review, I think I'll give this book a go.

    Lovely review!
