My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Hope’s Deceit by Angela McPherson is book 2 in the Fated series. This author did it again. I started reading this book today and finished today, it had me on the edge of my seat from page 1. In the deciding book, our characters stories start to come full circle and we see a lot of questions answered from the first book. I can’t wait to see where this author takes this series next. I will definitely continue to not only read this series, but this author as well.

My Rating: 4 of 5 stars

Hope’s Deceit (The Fated #2) by Angela McPherson was a great addition to this unique original series.

The second book in The Fates series, we’re tossed back into this intriguing world and it’s growing danger. Just so you know, this is a continuation series, so I highly suggest reading the first book, as this one pretty much picks up were the last leaves off. So you will be confused, and you will miss important plots points and character development.

First things first. I had some mixed feels about the first book, and though I very much enjoyed this book and did like it better than the first, I still got some issues. Those issues all seems to be around our fated MC, Trinity. I hate to say it, cause I wanted her to become better, but in all, sadly, she didn’t. I felt like she actually took a few steps back, when at this point in the story she should be buckling down and growing in her skills and her powers. Okay, yes, things kind of blew up and her beau is turning evil, so I do get some of her attitude, but, she wasn’t growing as a character. There was no major character arc for her, plus her maturity level, for someone that’s about to be 18 wasn’t there. If it wasn’t for the amazing plot and well crafted writing… I don’t know.

Now, the plot, detail, side characters and the overall story, is pretty great. The pandora’s box premises that this story is based around is quite interesting, and it really pulls you in. The writing is engaging, and has a nice easy flow. The pacing issues that I saw in the first were not present in this one, as the story seems to have a more clear pathway. I like the drama around Blain, actually I was intrigued by his whole situation. It was a added twist that added a much needed layer to makeup for the weak MC. The detail is something else, and really pulls you into this world.

Overall, though I am again a little split about this book, I like it, I liked the plot, I like where it’s going, and I will be reading the next books to come in this series. I believe with some more work on the MC, this series has the potential to be something epic. So please take my high recommendation and my stamp of approval, that you will find an otherworldly, fresh original tale of what happens when you open that pandora’s box.

Happy Reading

Hope’s Deceit is Book 2 in the Fated Series by Angela McPherson. For the ultimate experience, I recommend that you read book 1 first to give yourself the best understanding of the characters and the plot.

This book continues straight after the events that ended book 2. The action starts straight away and doesn’t let up until the end! This book continues to suck you into this world, that the author has created, she has once again made this a mentally visual read throughout.
I got so caught up in this book and it’s incredible storyline and characters, I was gutted when it ended, I was completely captivated with this read from the very beginning right up until the last page.
The book was filled with twists and turns throughout that had me on the edge of my seat. I cannot rate this book enough.
But after all the things life throws her way will Trinity finally get her HEA?

I can’t wait to see what else this author brings to the rest of this series – I’ll be eagerly awaiting Book 3.

Hope’s Deceit (The Fated Book 2) by Angela McPherson starts right where the first leaves off and boy oh boy what a ride. Angela’s writing and her creativity has given us a creative twist of the aftermath of Pandora’s box in modern time. ​The danger and action and thrills and spills start from the very start and doesn’t end. As with the first book, I was unable to put it down and read it in one sitting. Angela has the knack to convey a story that you can picture in your mind, keeps you engrossed and intrigued page after page. Well done Ms McPherson.   There are a lot of answered questions from the first book and some banter that will see you laughing. What they never expected was evil becomes good and good becomes evil and the very thing that could end the world of hope and light.

OMG the next book can not come quick enough.

Hope’s Deceit ( The Fated Book 2) by Angela McPherson is the second book in her The Fated Series and let me just say if you haven’t read the first book go do it now as this one picks up where the first one left off. I was impatiently waiting for this book and once I got it I had a hard time putting it down. So this picks up where we left off with Trinity and Blain. Trinity finds herself having a hard time coming to terms with her destiny especially when life keeps throwing stuff her way. Can she get the ending she wants? Will it be a HEA ending? These two definitely have their HOT moments holy cow! Can Trinity do the task she’s been fated with? I am only going to say this once I seriously think everyone should read this series it’s amazing. Every one gets better and better, I can’t wait to read the next book in this series.

4 Stars!!!!

Once again I am not disappointed! This is the second book in this series and I as totally hooked from page one. The author brings the world she has created to life . I was drawn back into the world of Trinity and Blain and the Watchers.

The drama just gets better and better in this book as the normal life Trinity is hoping for soon takes a leap out the front window and her life takes a turn. I really found myself drawn in as they try and fight against Melia and the rouges. The author has such a refreshing style and with the twist at the end I am on bated breath awaiting the next book. I will definitely be reading more from this series and this author.

Hope’s Deceit is the second installment of the Fated Book series by Angela McPherson. I would highly recommend reading book 1 as this story takes off from the end of the book. Angela McPherson has had my interest from the first word of the series through the last word of this book. I felt like I have grown with Trinity. I like the fact that Trinity is growing up and understanding what is taking place and how her destiny is looking. Trinity and Blain are together and have found how they work out. I enjoyed reading about Trinity and Blain and I cannot wait to see where their story goes from here.

Hope’s Deceit (Fated Book 2)
By Angela McPherson

Wow!! This book picks right where the first one leaves off, so if you haven’t read Hope’s Decree I encourage you to do so. This book is just as awesome as the first one, there is unexpected twists and turns, action, suspense, romance, and everything else you could want in a great read! I don’t want to give anything away so let me just say as soon as I picked up this book I could not stop reading. I needed to know what happens with Trinity, Blain, Morpheus, and their friends. Will the light win over the darkness? Is Trinity up for the challenge? I enjoyed watching her grow in this story and experience even more of her powers. The ending, all I can say is OMG, I need to read book 3 now!! I highly recommend this wonderful read.

Hope’s Deceit is book two in the Fated series by Angela McPherson. Trinity and Blain and company are back with more fighting, drama action, thrills and spills. In this ever exciting instalment, they continue to fight evil and find hope for a better, safer world.

There was a lot of back and forth, back and forth in this story. But these characters are so young, I forgot how riddled with drama young adult life really can be. It is no different for the supernatural. Young love is young love ,in any walk of life. This colourful cast was exclusively entertaining, the plot was engaging and intense, with trouble, chaos and violence never too far away. The story changed directions very quickly, which made the tale more incredibly addictive. Never knowing what to expect was both aprehensive and arousing. This incredible book is worth 5 stars.

“Little by little, normal slipped farther away.”

 

“Remember, fear keeps you from being who you truly are. Embrace your fate.”

 

Hopes Deceit is the second book in The Fated series by Angela McPherson. This is a spellbinding fantasy, with paranormal elements, Greek Mythology, a Curse, Immortals, Light and dark, good vs evil, mystery, drama, destiny, action, adventure, suspense, danger, intrigue, magic, and some romance. This incredible story is woven around the legend of Pandora’s Box and it’s a wonderfully original and exciting read! As I said in my review of the first book, this story/series definitely has a ‘Percy Jackson’ feel to it, and would make an exciting television series.
We catch up with Trinity, Blain and the rest of the cast as the story picks up not long after the events of book one ended. They are still coming to terms with what happened and almost losing everything during their confrontation with Melia. Trinity is still adjusting to her powers. She worries that things are changing, within herself, with Blain, her family and friends. Some things come as shocking revelations, while others she’s not quite sure how to ‘fix’ it. With an evil ‘darkness’ making its presence known, Trinity will have to utilise all her training and new-found ‘power’ if they are to defeat the threat, and survive.
I absolutely love Ms. McPherson’s books, and this series has become one of my absolute favourites, ever!! From the incredible world building, to the wonderful mythology that was woven through the story- this book really gave me an exciting reading experience that I didn’t want to end. The characters are really superb- so well developed and given ‘life’ by Ms. McPherson- and were crafted into fully realised individuals with their own personalities, quirks and flaws. Trinity learns quite a lot over the course of this story, about herself, Blain, her family, and friends- I loved seeing her continue to grow and develop as the story unfolds.
As with the first book, Ms. McPherson was so imaginative and clever in creating this plot/series- adding lots of seemingly small, intricate, and inter-connected details that built the mystery, suspense and tension of the story so incredibly well. I spent a lot of the time on the edge of my seat, wondering what was going to happen and trying to put all the pieces together. Then there were the surprising developments and twists which added another layer of intrigue and excitement to the whole. My mind was reeling trying to predict how the story would play out! And that ending…. OMG!!!
The story is set to continue in Book #3, and I cannot wait to get my hands on it!!
Pure perfection!!!!

Thank You, Ms. McPherson!!
