Hope’s Defeat, Book 3 in the Fated Series by Angela McPherson
5 out of 5 Stars
This third installment of the Fated series is everything I could have hoped for. This book is not a standalone. You will want to read the previous two books in the series to fully understand what is happening in this book as this one starts off with a bang. We start off with Trinity, lost and losing hope for finding Blain. Trinity and Blain share a connection that Blain is struggling to understand and Trinity is struggling to hold on to. You can physically feel the amount of guilt and pressure that Trinity is holding over herself as she searches to find Blain and the sorrow that comes when she learns of the missing Watchers.
Blain is an intense character. His dynamic is both complex, yet very simple. He is purpose driven, fear driven, and emotion driven. He is selfish. He knows that, but at his core, his most basic of creation, he is going to protect Trinity. He was born to do that.
My most favorite part of this entire book and series is the paranormal aspect where the author brought in pieces of mythology. To see all of the actions and the heartbreak from the past two books come to a conclusion in this final book, was both happy and sad at the same time. I am sad that there is not going to be another book, but I am also happy for the conclusion of this epic story.
This author is a masterful storyteller. She has the unique ability to combine known mythology and make it new with interesting characters, heart wrenching story-lines and lovable, relatable characters who you become attached to. I highly recommend this book for lovers of history, paranormal, romance, and sci-fi. You will not regret picking up this book.

Hope’s Defeat (The Fated Series) by Angela McPherson
Another action packed book in the Fated Series. Trinity has to take extreme measures to set Blain free. Now she has to face Cronus and dealing with gods is always tricky business. They never fight fair and it may cost Trinity her life. She’s decided that no cost is too high to save the other half of her soul.
This is a truly fascinating series and being the third book, I’m sad to see it end. It had action, drama, magic and intrigue. It had gods and goddesses based on Greek mythology, which I love. The characters were well developed and evolved with every book as did the plot. I not only enjoyed the main characters but the secondary ones as well. Maybe we’ll be able to see some stories involving some of the other watchers or demi gods? All in all, this was a fantastic series, one I highly recommend reading.

Hope’s Defeat (The Fated Book 3) by Angela McPherson is another amazing paranormal fantasy book in this series. Angela has certainly written a series that is great and one that everyone should read and is one of my all time favourites. The characters are wonderful and some of my favourites of any series. With Gods, Demi gods, based on Greek mythology with a twist and combined with paranormal, it is a winner. This book takes up where the last one left off and is just as fantastic as the others if not better. In this book the fight for light and dark, good and evil continues but is the biggest fight to date with twists and turns you don’t always see coming. Angela has woven another magical, mystical, mysterious masterpiece that is original take on Pandora’s box. This tale will keep you glued to your seat as you journey along and help fight the evil invading their world.

Hope’s Defeat (The Fated #3) by Angela McPherson was the epic conclusion I was hoping for.
The third and final book in The Fate series, we are taking on a heart stopping journey that has more than one life on the line. I have to say, this is what I’ve been waiting for from this series. Just some housekeeping before we start, this is part of a continuation series, and each book picks up where the last leaves off. So I highly suggest reading the first two books, if not you will be lost and confused. And you will not be able to appreciate the progress and development our characters had displayed throughout. (Especially the MC)
I did have some issues with the other books, but held on as I knew there was something epical great hidden deep within this wonderful dark world, that Angela McPherson has created. I do still have some minor things, but again that all has to do with the MC, and frankly at this point, there’s no need to get into it, as this is the last book.
What I want to stress is how freaking stoked I am about this book. It had a compelling plot, dangerous, dark and heartbreaking. The action starts pretty much right out of the gate, as does the race against time. And Blain, man oh man, I’m starting to wonder if the author hates him or something. Poor guy can’t catch a break. But in all seriousness, that turn brought that extra desperate layer that I believe was missing from the other books. Ethics and morals come into play, and for me, finally got me to like Trinity.
If you haven’t guessed from my gushing, I highly recommend this book, and this series. It gets my high stamp of approval, and my hope you will add this wonder to your collection.

I give Hope’s Defeat (The Fated Book 3) by Angela McPherson, 4 stars.
**This review contains spoilers from previous books in the series.**
The evil darkness now took over Blain. Trinity doesn’t know what to do anymore. She promised to never stop. But so many Watchers have died trying to rescue him. So she decides to take matters into her own hands. But it’s not that easy. Melia was nothing compared to the new evil that is lurking. Cronus. An evil god who was locked away and now wants to come back and take over. But will Trinity give him what he wants just to get Blain back? If she does, then what?
I have enjoyed this series and this book is no exception. Trinity has really stepped up to take on the responsibilities required of her. But she still struggles. She is tired of everything getting worse. This makes her real and likable because she is not perfect. Her family and friends really play parts in this too. They have to accept what she really is and her role in all this. The people are what make this book and series. But the story is great too. One enemy has been defeated, but there is one even worse. A god. And the other gods cannot and will not help. This was an interesting addition to this book.
Overall, this was a great book and I highly recommend it to young adult and older lovers of fantasy and urban fantasy who also enjoy a strong female lead character.

Hope’s Defeat (The Fated Book 3)
By Angela McPherson
I have loved this series from the beginning and this final book was no exception. This story has everything in you want in a good fantasy, there’s action, magic, suspense, romance, and so much more. This book had me on the edge of my seat through most of the story. I cannot get enough of Trinity and Blain, I am so sad to see it come to an end. The author did an amazing job really connecting you to the story so that you feel invested as these characters grew and wrapped it up nicely. You really need to read the first two books in this series before this one because it all comes together as your reading. I cannot say enough wonderful things about this book and this series as a whole except to say that you must read it!! I highly recommend this book you will not be disappointed, this is a 5 star read for me!!
Hope’s Defeat is book three in the Fated series by Angela McPherson. It continues with Trinity, Blain and crew fighting to save the world and mankind. This story is so far from what I read on a regular basis, it makes my heart happy to read each word. The dramatic and ever present danger and violence just adds to the appeal and I always have to read this author’s work in one go.
As usual, the writing is so captivating, so ethereal, it draws a reader into this world and the experience is so unique, you are left wondering if that really happened. The lines are blurred between fantasy and reality. The escape into these stories is entire and solid. Nothing much else exists except these characters and their journey. Oh, and coffee to heighten the experience even more. Reading this story made me really happy and it is a book that is well worth a reread. 5 stars.
Hope’s Defeat ( The Fated Series Book 3) by Angela McPherson is the third book in the Fated series and is the continuance of Trinity and Blain’s story. If you haven’t already read the first two books in this series I highly suggest you do .Oh man I’m completely blown away .I love this book/ series and can guarantee I will be reading it again and again. I can say this series is definitely on the top of my list of Phenomenal books/series that I have read in 2018 .What happens when Blain turns to the darkside?Can Trinity bring him back without it costing her her own life?I was on the edge trying to figure out what happens next. I highly recommend reading this book / series.I can’t wait to read more from this Author
Hope’s Defeat is the third installment of the Fated Series by Angela McPherson. This series is one that I will read again because I am afraid, I missed something. The world that Angela McPherson has created with her stories makes me want to live in her books (I know that is not possible, but one can dream). This story has all the same elements as the first two books, paranormal. Mythology, curses, gods and goddess, and light and dark. This story is a continuation of Trinity and Blain story. Trinity is trying to help Blain get out of his situation with the dark side of the road. She is willing to give up everything and I mean EVERYTHING for him. What will Trinity have to do to get the dark side away from Blain? Enjoy the story of Hope’s Defeat. Thank you, Angela McPherson for the Fated Book series.
