Welcome to my favorite Feature:

“Waiting on” Wednesday is hosted weekly by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

 

 

Fated

Book I in The Soul Seekers series
publication: May 22nd 2012 by St. Martin’s Press
sooo pretty!  

The first book in a magnificent new series about a girl who can navigate between the worlds of the living and the dead by #1 New York Times bestselling author Alyson Noël.

Lately strange things have been happening to Daire Santos. Animals follow her, crows mock her, and glowing people appear out of nowhere. Worried that Daire is having a nervous breakdown, her mother packs her off to stay in the dusty plains of Enchantment, New Mexico with a grandmother she’s never met.

There she crosses paths with Dace, a gorgeous guy with unearthly blue eyes who she’s encountered before…but only in her dreams. And she’ll get to know her grandmother—a woman who recognizes Daire’s bizarre episodes for what they are. A call to her true destiny as a Soul Seeker, one who can navigate between the worlds of the living and the dead. Her grandmother immediately begins teaching her to harness her powers—but it’s an art that must be mastered quickly. Because Dace’s brother is an evil shape-shifter who’s out to steal her powers. Now Daire must embrace her fate as a Soul Seeker and find out if Dace is one guy she’s meant to be with…or if he’s allied with the enemy she’s destined to destroy.

I admit have a love/hate relationship with the Evermore series. I totally loved the first book but then I stopped reading the series altogether. But, I am truly excited about this new series. It sounds awesome and I can’t wait to read this first book! 

It sounds so fantastic: souls, love and shapeshifting! 

Much Love,

Obsessive Reader by Night – Scientist at Day!

  1. I have yet to read anything by Alyson Noel. *hangs head in shame* This sounds like it might be the perfect place to start though! And I adore that cover. I want it on my shelf:) Awesome choice this week Danny!

  2. I have a similar relationship to the IMMORTALS series (stopped reading after the third book, although I think I’ll end up finishing it one day), but I’m really excited for FATED. Sooo happy to have got an ARC from the UK publisher and can’t wait to dive into it. It sounds awesome. Great pick! 🙂

  3. I have yet to read a book by Ms. Noel. I steered away from her books just because the reviews weren’t outstanding. This is perhaps one I would like to try.
    The cover is beautiful. Thanks for sharing Danny. Oh and the last couple of times I have commented here my blog feed doesn’t show up 🙁 Not sure why…

  4. I agree with the love/hate relationship with her Immortal series. I loved the first 1 or 2 books, but disliked the last few books. I already heard a negative review on this one, so I’m not so sure if I’ll still give it a try..

    My WoW

    • Totally agree!!!!! And i haven’t so much from her either, just the beginning of the Immortals. The covers of her MG novels at so cute but since the protagonist was so young I wasnt interested..

  5. Ohhhh, I am so in love with that cover. So gorgeous. I haven’t read the Evermore series, though I do hear a lot of mixed opinions on it. This book just has to be good, with a cover like that. I just really want it to be, haha.

    Great choice, Danny 🙂

  6. This new series looks pretty awesome. I will admit I normally shy awayfrom anything that looks too fantasy but this gives me good vibes.
    I like her as an author too.
    I am glad I am NOT the only one who was not feeling Evermore. I tried, I truly did.
    I follow u on Formspring! I just looked around ur blog & realized that. How cool.
    *nice to meet you*
    TY for reminding me this was coming out soon.
    *off to look around blog*
    MY W.O.W

    • Nice to meet you too!!!! Hope you’re going to like it here!!!!! Yeah for formspring I have to check if I follow you too!!! Makes me glad to hear so many people seem to have similar feelings about the Immortals.. Although it makes me a little sad this the first one as so promising!

    I won an ARC of this and am reading it now. Or should I say slogging through it. I’m only on page 80 something but this whole mystical thing isn’t doing it for me so far. I’ve never read any of Noel’s books before and I’m not tempted to pick them up based on the writing in Fated. But nothing’s really happened yet, she hasn’t really even met the two guys, so maybe I’ll change my mind once things start moving.

    I just finished reading Fated last night and I loved it! It was amazing and I can not wait til Echo comes out Nov. 13!
