Fated
A Doomsday Novella
Kindle Edition
Published October 11th 2010 by Shayla Black

Kari Keswick and Ronan Wolvesey burned for one another, but a deadly family curse targets their love with destruction. Will magic tear them apart?

Never having read anything by Shayla Black, I was more than pleasantly surprised by what I found in this free read of hers, a small part of her Doomsday Brethren series. Wizards who discover their mates by taste. Hmmm... Both intriguing and delicious.

While there's an underlying romanticism to a man taking the wrong woman to bed only to assuage the ache for the one woman he can't have... it's also pathetically disgusting. So, Ronan had two strikes against him before he even got up to bat with me. Of course nothing pales the hate for one man as much as the driving force of hate for another. Damn that brother of his. Grr!

Kari has been in love with Ronan for a while now, but won't allow herself to grace his bed where hundred upon thousands of women have already been. Meanwhile, a different lass every night and Ronan still can't shake the 'fever' he has for Kari. When Tynan, another wizard, confesses that Ronan's fit sounds all too much like the familiar feelings Tynan himself had when he found his mate, it gives Kari the courage to test Ronan with a single kiss.

And we spiral from there.

Contending with a curse that will end the life of any woman a man of Ronan's family takes to mate is nothing compared to the hell they endure at Ronan's brother Rydan's and their father's dumbass interference. Friggin' men! Doing stupid things with the best intentions. Story of their existence.

This was a great read. Magic. Curses. Animal instincts. War. A Brotherhood. All amazing ingredients to make up an awesome read. Shayla does well in throwing the reader through the love-hate loops and her characters are very well developed. It's obvious that each has a story to tell with all the baggage that comes with it. 4 out of 5 stars. Putting the Doomsday Brethen on the TBR for 2011. I don't think I can handle any more of that drama this year.

But with all these books, you don't have enough drama? *grins* Don't they all have Louis Vitton luggage? Heh...

I've had all the drama I can take with the Crimson Moon series. It had better be over!

I still have Sagara's chaos to contend with.

*grins widely* Yuppers. Did you start that book yet?

And we still haven't started...take that back *you* haven't started on that new Cast nibblet in that anthology, yet. Me, I got mores to go...lol.

Ragan (Location 2571) said...

Started? I finished Left For Undead. Review, if you can call it that, will post on the first.

And yes, I still have that nibblet to read. But Severn's not in it, right? So I wonder if I should even bother.

Redd said...

Ragan (Location 2571) said...

Yuppers. Started this morning. Finished around 4. Battled a migraine the entire time.

Thanks, Carissa. I probably should have put a link to her site where you can access the story.
