Interesting subject matter, but a failed attempt at making it believable. The main character is annoying. Her before and after transformation happens too fast while the action in the book drags on. Could have been so good because Noel has some fine moments in her, but overall I just wasn't swayed.

ARC Goodreads winner. ( )

Unlike potato chips, I can and did easily stop with just one book of The Soul Seekers. I’m not saying it wasn’t a decent read. Many teens will and already do like The Soul Seekers series. Fated had an attention-grabbing opening that created immediate suspense and anticipation. The teen voice and characterization were authentic (maybe a little too much so because as an adult I found Daire Santos rather annoying). The exotic locations and unusual upbringing of Daire add flair to the story and create perfect backdrops for mystical and paranormal events. Sometimes the pace slowed as the writer took the time to explain things. Maybe these explanations were necessary for the first book in a series, but I craved more action and romance. Occasionally, Fated became corny and cliche’ as well. Other times the novel surprised me in unexpected, positive ways. Fated became more engrossing the further I read into it, but it stopped short of turning me on to the series. One book satisfied my curiosity enough, plus I never connected with the characters enough to feel invested in their fate. Nevertheless, die-hard fans of the young adult, paranormal genre may want to try The Soul Seekers series for themselves. ( )

I couldn't get into this book. I'd love to say different because the summary and cover seemed cool but, I couldn't even finish it. ( )

I liked the beginning of the book I was interested in the plot and the magic system, but by the end I sort of lost interest.

Maybe it was my fault for taking so long to read this, but I never felt the need to jump right back into the story to see what happened.

I liked this book, I most likely won't read the rest of the series but this one wasn't bad by any means. ( )

I was really hoping this book would draw me in. I loved her Immortals series, but this one just didn't have that kind of pull for me. I did love the idea behind this book though.

I liked how the characters had Hispanic and Native American origins. These cultures have many things to offer. Magick and spirit animals were extremely important in the building of this story. Your spirit animal guides you through your choices and life's journey. I have often wondered what animal I would be most like, but I still haven't figured that one out. I wasn't exactly sure how the magick fit in besides the fact that all seekers posses it. There wasn't much of an explanation in what Daire could do, just that she was extremely powerful. Noel does offer a few scenes with minor things Daire can do.

There wasn't much background on any of the characters except Daire, the MC. The base knowledge of Dace and Cade was given, but nothing more. I would have loved to know a bit more about Dace. He is the main focus in her dreams, and it would have been nice to see other parts of him.

Even though I felt there was a lot of buildup and not enough events, I will read the next book in the series (due out this fall). I'm intrigued with where the story will take us, and if her dream is a prophecy or just her fears. ( )
