My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Hope’s Decree (The Fated Book 1) by Angela McPherson is an amazing start to the series. This paranormal Greek Mythology story is full of mystery and intrigue, danger and action and thrills and spills and the elusive bad guys hold you captive. Angela keeps you on your toes as a reader, not being able to put the book down and wanting to know more, I literally read it in one sitting. It is a tale of Pandora’s box and one of hope that rests on one woman’s shoulders.

Trinity has always been a normal teenager but everything she knows is about to be turned upside down as she is thrown into a world that she thought was only a myth.

Blain has spent millennial’s looking for the one. The one that is the world’s hope, but what he discovers is something he didn’t expect to find, something that turns his world upside down.

I can not wait to read the book in the series.

I have read some of Angela McPherson’s books prior to reading this gem of a novel, but this, this wonderful read right here is my all time favorite of hers. I was blown away with this book, and frankly the only negative thing I could possibly say is that it ended. Even then the next one is available and I am so grateful because as soon as this review is typed I am diving into it!

Now, I personally adore Greek Mythology, it has fascinated me since I was little girl. My father and I have always talked about these magical worlds where the Gods live. So I love reading books that bring these memories to life. Angela McPherson did a fantastic job writing this story out. It was flawless and it flowed well. These type of books can often get a bit stalemate or over detailed, this was never an issue!

Trinity just wants to get through her last year of high school okay. Just like she has been. No she may not have all the friends in the world but she has what she needs and she is ok with that. Just when she thinks everything is going to go as planned things start to get weird for her. She starts feeling other people. And I mean “feeling.” Then enters the sexy and protecting Blaine. Things only get crazier from there… This book will leave you reeling, in so many great ways. I must go read the next one now! Thanks Ms. McPherson!!

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Hope’s Decree was a good four star read and book one in the Fated series.

My whole freakish life I’d desperately wanted to shut out the surge of emotions I often felt from others.

This was an interesting read that peaked my interest in Greek mythology, this is out of my realm of genre but I was pleasantly surprised.

Trinity was a great character with a lot of drama and sassiness, she is a 17 year old in her senior year of high school. We get to know her group of friends and of course the snobby mean girls. I did have some LOL moments with some thoughts that Trinity would have.

There is so much action and conflict along with several twists and turns. All of the secondary characters added a great element to the story. It was great watching Trinity develop into a very strong person, I can’t wait to read the next book in the series to see where she goes from here.
Angela McPherson has done a great job of pulling you right in with her writing.

Hope’s Decree by Angela McPherson is book one in the Fated series. I love reading young adult books and this was no exception. This is the first book I have read by this author, but it definitely will not be the last. I really enjoy when authors leave me wanting more from page 1. This book has everything you could want, love story, trials, uncertainty and happiness. I really enjoyed the Greek mythology tie in, along with the depth of her characters and the story line. This book makes you feel like you are living right along side then living each moment. I give this book a solid 5 stars and cant wait to read the next in the series.

My Rating: 3 of 5 stars

Hope’s Decree (The Fated #1) by Angela McPherson was a okay entertaining read, with an unique plot that keeps you reading.

I have to say, I got some mixed feels about this book. Being my first read by this author I went in as I always do with an open mind. The writing is good, the flow was nice, but there are some repeats. The best way to say this would be, like the same scene was done twice but at different locations. It made the story feel a like unfocused and choppy. I also has some trouble with the MC. She was very Mary-sue like, and not in a good way. Overpowered, non-flawed characters can work when done right, but sadly to say, I wasn’t feelin that with this one. There is also a unneeded love triangle. It felt forced and just, I have to repeat myself, unneeded.

Not all is lost though, because this story has quite the plot and the actual story telling is engaging and hooking. The Greek mythology is interesting and adds an otherworldly element. Morpheus is a great character, and in truth if it wasn’t for him I don’t know if I would have enjoyed this story as much as I did. I also loved the fight scenes, they were choreographed stunningly. I found myself on the edge of my seat and holding my breath. Detailed with a steady flow, I felt like i was watching a movie. And the twist and turns this story takes, really puts a new spin on the normal greek mythology.

Overall this story, though had me mixed, I did very much enjoy myself. The ending was open ended, leaving room for this story to continue, and I will being reading the next book. So yes I do give this book my high recommendation and my stamp of approval.

Happy Reading

Hope’s Decree is Book 1 in The Fated Series, which is a new series from author Angela McPherson. This author has well and truly captured me into this world, which is full of action, adventure, suspense,mystery, romance and fantasy. Weaved throughout is Greek mythology that I felt as though I was learning new things along with the characters, I got so caught up in the flow of this book and it’s incredible story line 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, along with feeling all the heightened emotions, Trinity’s story is one all should follow, especially when Blain comes into her life.

Angela McPherson has made this read mentally visual, and I felt as though I was there along side the characters living out the story myself.

This is an incredible fantasy read, that should not be missed! I highly recommend you read this story and dive into the new world that Angela has created! Don’t miss this read – you’ll be eagerly awaiting the next one in the series, just the same as me!

Hope’s Decree (The Fated Series Book 1) by Angela Mcpherson
5 Stars!!!!!

I really love it when I find new authors and new series. This book is a great start to this series. I really like paranormal books and with the added drama in this it makes it really grabbing. There was constant want to not put the book down.

I found Trinity to be quite relatable. The way the author brings the emotions and how a normal teen struggles with feeling normal. I was drawn to the characters in this book as the story began to unfold. The chemistry between Trinity and Blain just really adds to the story. As Trinity begins her journey that is destine for her and battles the evil I was so drawn in and the added bonus of the romance between her and Blain really hooks the reader in. I find that I really cannot wait to find out what happens next and look forward to reading the next book in the series. I I am glad to add this author to my top favorite authors.

5 Stars

I have read other books from this author and have never been disappointed so it was an easy choice for me to pick up and read. I love this book! When I finished reading it, I knew that I had found another series that I would love. I can’t wait to read the other two books.

I enjoy when authors are able to intertwine mythology into their storyline. This one was phenomenal! It was an original take on Pandora’s box. Trinity is a descendant of Pandora and she must learn how to wield her powers and save mankind. It’s a little much for Trinity to accept seeing as she’s just trying to get through her senior year of high school. I liked Trinity a lot. She was strong yet weak, brave and insecure. She didn’t want to cause trouble but she stood her ground and didn’t let people walk all over her. Being only seventeen, her emotions were all over the place and she was constantly changing her mind about being with Blain. It was a little frustrating.

Blain is a drop dead gorgeous guy who happens to be Trinity’s guardian. He is her protector and he has to teach her how to use her powers. You can see that he really loves her too but Blain is just as stubborn as her. Indecision between doing his duty and wanting to be with Trinity as more than her guardian. He doesn’t want her with anyone else either. This leads to some interesting scenes.

Morpheus has to be my favourite character even though he’s a bad guy. He has the dark looks that I like and he’s sarcastic and funny. There are many layers to him which I love.

This story has many twists and turns which constantly kept me on my toes. The fight scenes added fast paced action which felt like I was watching a movie. The characters were down to earth and relatable which had me cheering them on. The book was creative and kept me captivated until the very end. It doesn’t end in a cliffhanger but it is an open ending which will lead into book two. I’m very excited to read the next one in the series.

Greek mythology and love and suspense wrapped into this lovely packaging – yes please! I love Greek mythology and loved how the author incorporated it into this story. Abbott wove a fantastic story, one that captivated me from beginning to end. This series is set up beautifully and I look forward to reading more.

Hope’s Decree by Angela McPherson a four-star read that will give you hope. This is the first novel in the Fated series and what a start to the series. Even though the story has its roots in Greek mythology it is still a compelling and easy to read. Trinity is someone you can get into and understand her struggle. This was a great story and the author has a great descriptive writing style and I can’t wait for the rest of the series.
