My rating: 5 of 5 stars

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.

My Rating: 4 of 5 stars

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.

Happy Reading

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

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.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Well Angela McPherson sure knows how to write one heck of a finale! This book really just blew me away. I was left wanting more because it was that great, but I was also satisfied with how well it was concluded. Both great signs of a wonderful ending to a wonderful series. I really must reiterate what I have been saying along with my other reviews for The Fated books. Angela Mcpherson’s strong suit is here. I had read some of her other novels prior to picking up these and they were good, but not near as shiny great as these have been. Now as I am mentioning this book is a conclusion to a series so please don’t pick it up before devouring the first two novels and in order or you will be lost as all get out. Besides its worth every second of your reading time. I am not going to go into details and ruin this amazing end for you, I just can’t bare to do it. I do HIGHLY recommend this read, you won’t be disappointed you did! Thank Angela McPherson for the amazing adventure with Trinity and Blain!

Hope's Defeat (The Fated #3)Hope’s Defeat by Angela McPherson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A great read about struggles. After the events of the last book, Blain was infected by the dark orbs. Desperate to save him, Trinity uses new powers to look for a forgotten god and ask for help. But everything comes with a price, and is it too much to pay?
A great read. Well developed plot with twists and turns. Well developed characters like Trinity trying to do whats right whilst dealing with new powers or new friends like Kyron and Centu supportive and brave. A spinechilling villain in Cronus
I loved the visual detail throughout the novel with the natural imagery of the crisp dawn or the green meadows in the dream so vivid felt as if you were there. I also loved the sense of the elements with ice and fire and air with the wind and the aether aswell was a brillaint addition for a more powerful magical feel to the novel. The contrasts with cold and hot and vivid colours such as black and red or green and blue were perfectly written.
I loved how it started straight with the action and Watchers to captivate the reader from the start. I also adored the use of mythology in the book with Cronus and Tarturus true to the original. Fast paced action and high stakes in a fantasy world made for a captivating read.Overall, a great read and I would give it five stars.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

What a fantastic book and series! This installment, like the rest, immediately captured my attention. I felt compassion for the characters and felt the emotional roller coaster they experienced. The author does a fantastic job maintaining the universe created throughout the series and developing her characters fully. Very well written and very enjoyable read. Definitely recommended.

While some bonds break, fate built theirs to last forever.

Winning the battle against Melia was supposed to give Trinity and Blain a chance to live a normal life. The problem is another evil has taken the Rogue’s place, shattering any promise of a future Trinity hoped to have with her sworn guardian.

Darkness now controls Blain.

Freeing his soul is a challenge Trinity gladly accepts, but rescuing the love of her life comes with one major complication. To save him she must go through Cronus, the ancient god who holds Blain’s light hostage.

Every Watcher Trinity enlisted failed.

Nothing is too extreme if it releases Blain. Summoning a forgotten god is dangerous, but for help in the fight against Cronus it’s worth the risk. In the end, she’ll even gamble her own soul to set Blain’s free.

Protecting humankind isn’t just a destiny Trinity was born to uphold—it’s her rite of passage. One that may cost her life.

Hope’s Deceit (The Fated #2) by Angela McPherson – Review by Emily Walsh

Hope's Deceit (The Fated #2)Hope’s Deceit
ByAngela McPherson
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 (The Fated #2)Hope’s Deceit by Angela McPherson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

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 Decree (The Fated #1)Hope’s Decree by Angela McPherson
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.
