Me on Waiting on Wednesday (50)

Waiting on Wednesday is a bunch of weekly fun hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. :)

Title: Fated
Author: Sarah Alderson
Release Date: January 5, 2012
Publisher: Simon & Schuster Children's Books

From Goodreads:

What happens when you discover you aren't who you thought you were? And that the person you love is the person who will betray you? If your fate is already determined, can you fight it?

When Evie Tremain discovers that she’s the last in a long line of Demon slayers and that she’s being hunted by an elite band of assassins –Shapeshifters, Vampires and Mixen demons amongst them – she knows she can’t run. They’ll find her wherever she goes. Instead she must learn to stand and fight.

But when the half-human, half-Shadow Warrior Lucas Gray is sent to spy on Evie and then ordered to kill her before she can fulfill a dangerous prophecy, their fates become inextricably linked. The war that has raged for one thousand years between humans and demons is about to reach a devastating and inevitable conclusion. Either one or both of them will die before this war ends.

If your life becomes bound to another's, what will it take to sever it?

I can't seem to explain why I want to read this book so much. Maybe I want another Dru from Strange Angels, now that the series is over. It any case, this book does sound really interesting. And the cover is very striking. :)


  1. This sounds really great. Saw this on another blog in a WoW post today for the first time and immediately added it to my to-read list.

  5. Oohhh another book that I've never heard. So many new books I'm discovering. Come visit me as well.

  6. holy crap, this one sounds amazing. must have! great pick. :)

  7. The cover does remind me of Strange Angels, now that you mention it. And this sounds thrilling and creeptastic, BUT the aspect that makes me wary is the 'I Love You But Must Betray You' story line. The cover is cool, too.
